Johnnie Cochran
The Legacy Lives On

Founding Partner, 1937 – 2005

Johnnie Cochran was one of this country’s greatest lawyers.  People around the world saw him as someone who fought for the rights of all and gave back to his community.  As a skillful lawyer, he was a leading expert on the American criminal and civil justice system.
Johnnie was born in 1937 in Shreveport, Louisiana.  He moved with his family to California in the fall of 1943.  At an early age, Johnnie found his love for debate. He graduated college from the University of California at Los Angeles and got his law degree from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles.
Johnnie Cochran began his legal career in 1963.  He was assigned to the criminal section of the City Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles. He spent several years there before starting his own firm where he handled both civil and criminal cases.

In 1978, he became Assistant District Attorney of Los Angeles County.

In 1981, he went back to private practice and got big verdicts for victims of negligence and civil rights violations. As his success grew, he used the law to create change in many landmark and high-profile cases.
He is most famous for his role as lead counsel for the O.J. Simpson case in 1995.  That year he was selected America’s Trial Lawyer of the Year by The National Law Journal and one of the Headliners of the Year by Time magazine.  Johnnie is the only attorney to be named criminal defense lawyer of the year and civil trial lawyer of the year by the Los Angeles Bar.
