WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

The Cochran Firm is worth more than 5 stars! I cannot express my gratitude enough for everyone was involved in my case. If you are a person living with disability, you will be accommodated through the whole process. It's not often you find a lawyer and her team ready to service justice, and this, is a firm I highly recommend. Biggest shout out to Anahita and to everyone that worked on my case. Thank you for fighting the good fight.

Our Family would like to let Brian T. Dunn, and the rest of the Cochran Firm know how grateful we are for their professionalism and expertise. It took five years to an put an end to this Judicial process and deliver justice. We will forever be grateful. Thank you.

Incredible experience from start to finish. They earn their accolades for a reason. Stellar research, response times, investigative processes, negotiations and handled the entire proceedings without stepping foot in a court room. Our legal counsel was professional and forthright in every area of this case, and the office staff handled all the rest. Thank you Cochran Firm and office staff for taking such a terrible experience and creating such a perfect flow & execution.
