History of the Firm
In 1997, Johnny Cochran partnered with Samuel A. Cherry, Jr., Keith Givens, and Jock M. Smith. The partnership of Cochran Cherry Givens & Smith provided the framework which launched The Cochran Firm. With the first offices located in Los Angeles and New York, The Cochran Firm expanded into a national law firm with regional offices across the U.S., giving the firm the ability to represent clients in multiple states.
With regional offices everywhere, the Cochran Firm is one of the nation’s largest personal injury firms with some of the most aggressive personal injury attorneys, know for their tireless and effective legal representation. The Cochran Firm partners have secured $35 billion in verdicts, settlements and judgments for our clients.
With a reputation like ours, it’s easy to get swept away in accolades and awards. At the Cochran Firm, though, our experienced and aggressive personal injury and criminal defense lawyers focus not on praise, but dedication handling quality, legal representation for injured people, their families and the ordinary citizens as implemented by Johnny Cochran, over four decades ago.
