Legal Figure. He was best known for successfully defending Football star O.J. Simpson from 1994 to 1995 on double homicide charges as part of Simpson's "Dream Team." Cochran, who originally was from Shreveport, Louisiana, moved to Los Angeles, California, at a young age with his family. Cochran was a graduate of UCLA and received his law degree from Loyola Marymount University. Although he is best known for defending celebrities such as Simpson, Sean "P-Diddy" Combs, and Michael Jackson, he was actually a personal injuries attorney and specialized in tort cases. Since 1966 he represented many clients in cases of personal injury and malpractice through his highly successful nationwide law firm that is in many different states. Before starting his firm in 1966, Cochran worked in the L.A. County D.A.'s Criminal Division in which he worked with future Simpson judge Lance Ito. (bio by: John Patton)
