Standing Up for the Rights of the Injured and Oppressed in Illinois
Cochran & Montgomery was founded to help people in need, whether in need of compensation due to a personal injury or in need of someone to help assert their civil rights. Firm founders James D. Montgomery Sr. and Johnnie Cochran sought to build a law firm where these people could come at such vulnerable points in life — a goal they achieved and a vision we seek to live up to every day.
Every case we handle is different, but our mission remains consistent: to do everything we can to prove to each client that he or she made the right choice by entrusting his or her case to us. We know there are many law firms to choose from, so we value every client who selects us and trusts that we will achieve a positive result. We are proud of the fact that many of our past clients recommend our services to relatives and associates who need legal representation.
