A Proud Tradition of Protecting Citizens
The Cochran Firm was founded by Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. on the principle that ordinary citizens deserved aggressive and tireless representation. Mr. Cochran had a vision that his law firm would both seek justice for victims of powerful organizations and seek real reform in legal code. As such, all 25 branches of The Cochran Firm have skilled, dedicated attorneys who focus exclusively on a select number of the most serious cases and who relentlessly battle powerful wrongdoers on behalf of everyday people.
The attorneys at The Cochran Firm DC are honored to carry on Mr. Cochran’s legacy. We seek not only to get you the maximum compensation you are due in these cases but – in some cases – to set precedent for stricter regulations against abuses of power.
We are entirely devoted to the rights of victims.
