Welcome to The Cochran Firm, Founded over 40 years ago by Legendary attorney Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr.

We fight for justice throughout Southern California and statewide.
Founded over 40 years ago by famed attorney Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr., The Cochran Firm has grown to encompass 27 offices in 16 states around the country. The Cochran Firm Los Angeles has been in the same location for 25 years, and remains committed to upholding Johnnie’s vision of “a diverse law firm which reflects society and is capable of handling cases throughout America.”

Trial Lawyers for the People.

When we get involved, we seek economic justice, and will make every effort to make this a better and safer world through your case.

First comes the phone call. Or e-mail. Or you just stop by our Firm, the same Firm Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. made history from for several decades. You speak with one of our highly trained legal assistants, we take down the information, and it is evaluated and summarized by our intake department.

The intake personnel directly discuss your case with one of our lawyers, often one of our partners, as quickly as possible. Shortly thereafter, you’re meeting with a Cochran Firm lawyer, a Trial Lawyer for the People like you, and discussing the beginning of a legal relationship. Here’s what you can expect.

First, our commitment. We are excellent in the fields we practice. Whether it be civil rights, employment law, discrimination, negligence, medical malpractice, product liability, government road design, insurance bad faith, complex medical injury or death, we bring decades of skills and accomplishments to the relationship. What we offer to you is our collective passion, intellect, and legal power. And we do this for you on a contingency fee. If we don’t win, you don’t pay us. We advance all costs. We are there for you, guiding you through the legal process.

The Cochran Firm does big things. We make headlines when we need to, when it is something Los Angeles, or California, or America, needs to know. We are also there for you in other ways. We can handle matters privately and in a dignified manner when that’s appropriate. We cater to your needs. We ensure that, while we work for you, we gain your trust and confidence. We are proud to know that our past clients through the years serve as our best ambassadors in the public. It is not uncommon at all for former clients to stop by or call us, just to say hello.

The family approach of the Cochran Firm is seen throughout our work. From the friendliness of our receptionists, to the intake department, then to the team of lawyers and legal specialists working for you, we bring a personal and hands-on approach to our task. Economic justice. Changing the world, one case at a time. As Johnnie used to say, everybody from the O’Jays to the No Jays….
