The Cochran Firm – Nashville thrives on the idea to provide exceptional legal representation to victims of all types of injustice and from every walk of life. The mission of the legendary Mr. Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr., founder of The Cochran Firm, pulses as the life force through everything we do. We aim to represent people throughout Middle Tennessee in cases involving personal injury, nursing home abuse, wrongful death, defective construction and related causes of action.
Our client testimonials validate our mission better than we ever could, though. The words of the people we have represented in their legal struggles paint a clear picture of our team: a group of attorneys and staff who passionately fight for justice—while simultaneously treating our clients with care and compassion.
Our attorneys have represented plaintiffs in a number of high-profile cases, involving personal injury medical malpractice, wrongful death, trucking accidents and others.
We apply tireless dedication to every case that we take. Following Mr. Cochran’s spirit of excellence, our partners within The Cochran Firm have secured over $45 billion in verdicts, settlements, and judgments. Most cases do not result in these types of numbers, but every case benefits from our attorneys’ willingness to fight for our clients to the absolute end of the line, taking every step we can to get our clients the money they deserve.
Managing Partner, Ashley L. Upkins, prides herself on continuing Mr. Cochran’s legacy. Her dedication, passion, and skills have been acknowledged multiple times by the legal industry and her peers alike.
Everyone at The Cochran Firm – Nashville aims to walk in the footsteps that the renowned Mr. Johnnie Cochran, Jr. began taking over forty years ago. We are here for the injured and for their families. We can handle the big, headliner cases, but we are also here for the small cases that may not make the evening news. We are here for you.
