McMurray says he was defrauded, also, as well as the firm's clients across the country. Numerous former Cochran Firm associates and partners complained and some sued over the years to get remedy for The Cochran Firm fraud - the honest ones, usually. The Cochran Firm seemingly has no use for ethical attorneys.

Vickie Gilliam, Esq. spoke about the Ramapough People's case to Terry Lowry in during a two-part interview (two(2) links):

It is a shame how The Cochran Firm ran over the Indigenous People to save Ford and the EPA. They got rid of Gilliam first - took her off the case that was worth between $2 billion and $3 billion, then settled for only $12.5 million! Poor Mr. Mann and his People.
Thank you to all activists and grassroots organizations that helped us to warn some of the people by sharing my articles and tweets about The Cochran Firm fraud, discussing them with friends, and inviting me to speak on your radio and television shows. We are also grateful to Press TV and the "Lawless America - the Movie" producer, Bill Windsor. A special request for abolitionists:
PLEASE don't let The Cochran Firm handle any death penalty cases! According to Shawn Chapman Holley, Johnnie Cochran did not want the firm to do any criminal defense work at all. He probably suspected (or knew) that his new partners are prison investors. Prisons earn much more for warehousing condemned inmates than inmates in the general population, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.
THE COCHRAN FIRM apparently defrauds other law firms as well as its clients and some of its own partners. See an excerpt of an article in New York Law Journal:
October 29, 2012 -- Two prominent civil rights firms in New York are accused by a three-lawyer Washington, D.C. firm of cheating it out of a significant fee as part of a $3.75million settlement in a wrongful death case. Catalano & Plache claims that [Cochran] Neufeld Scheck & Brustin and Emery Celli Brinckerhoff & Abady submitted court documents on settlement terms without naming Catalano as a participating firm.
"The defendants engaged in a pattern of conduct to defraud and deceive plaintiff," Catalano argues in the Manhattan Supreme Court suit, Law Offices of Catalano & Plache v. Brustin, 157248/2012. "Defendants are scheming and attempting to avoid their legal, moral and ethical obligations."
We should ALL file a RICO Act racketeering lawsuit against the identity-challenged, absent-minded lawyers. They OFTEN forget who they are working for on civil cases - the plaintiffs or the defendants. They forget which cities they "operate" in and swear in court, "We are in no way affiliated with The Cochran Firm or any Cochran Firm offices." The Atlanta office lied in court, saying "We are a wholly owned Georgia corporation," and "We have no affiliation with any law offices whatsoever in Memphis, TN." Judges help them get away with perjury, too, or they simply refuse to hear the case against the frauds. That happened during a class action for race discrimination in California. Clients claimed The Cochran Firm FORGED THEIR NAMES ON A BOGUS SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT FOR A MINISCULE SUM, but California Supreme Court shrugged.
The Cochran Firm lawyers sometimes use an alias name in court to defend the firm against fraud lawsuits, like Hezekiah Sistrunk, Esq. did. He is the managing partner in the firm's Atlanta office, which is prolifically advertised at 127 Peachtree Street. But its very existence is denied in court in order to falsely claim that the Neal's lawsuit was not served to the "right" party. The Atlanta office came up with a sham name it called a PC, but that alias was never registered with the Georgia Secretary of State as a corporation, PC, LLC, dba, or anything else. See a list in the article at the link below containing names of more people who sued The Cochran Firm for defrauding them. Most of the lawyers' frauds seem to be done to protect their clients' defendants.
BEWARE of treacherous lawyers: The Cochran Firm Fraud.
McMurray Exposes Racketeering!
While The Cochran Firm defrauds its attorneys and law firms it partnered with as well as its own clients, poor Lynne Stewart was disbarred, prosecuted, and imprisoned for carrying a letter to the press for her client. The human rights attorney is 72 now, and wrestling with cancer in prison where she has been for years. God is going to have a word or two for our judges one day soon. Visit and write Lynne Stewart at
We seem to need courageous attorneys like Spire Law Group, Juan Guerra, or Alton Maddox at times like these. Maddox admired Johnnie Cochran and probably hates what the prejudice Alabama partners are doing to his name and legacy. Maddox is a civil/human rights attorney, also. He was prohibited from practicing law in any New York court after he missed a single court hearing. "Disparate sentencing" applies to attorneys, too, depending on who they represent and how well they do it.
I had hoped that my family's justice quest regarding Larry Neal's lynching and my terrorism following The Cochran Firm fraud would end on a quietly victorious note. But after viewing a movie called "Maafa21," which is available in the next article in FreeSpeakBlog, I recognize that elitists probably would not allow The Cochran Firm to pay damages and apologize for covering up my disabled brother's murder while under secret arrest in Memphis Shelby County Jail if the firm wanted to do so. None of them in that "eugenics/ genocide club" think it is necessary to treat Africans in America like real people. They believe us to be "imbeciles" and "useless eaters" and "the Negro problem" since slavery was declared illegal except for convicts, which is why America has the highest prison population in the history of the world. Upholding human and civil rights is not a popular idea in Washington at this time, either. Access the article and full-length movie about the eugenics/genocide program are available at "BLACK GENOCIDE Maafa21" at the link:
McMurray's documentary proof (if you need more) that The Cochran Firm engages in deliberately false or misleading advertising and does shoddy legal work that rises to the level of RICO racketeering will be published in a subsequent article. After that, please look for "Cochran Firm Fraud" wherever you buy books.
(Eight(8) links are in this article - at least they were when I finished. I had to open and repair damages in this article frequently at MaryLovesJustice blog, because cyberstalkers did not intend for my readers to hear interviews by two other attorneys - Shawn Chapman Holley and Vickie Gilliam, regarding previous frauds by The Cochran Firm racketeers.
Preventing justice for Africans in America is a part of the Black Genocide program, which sterilized tens of thousands of blacks in the 1960s and continues to abort millions of black children. Murders of black people by police and mass incarceration of blacks during their childbearing years are also part of "ethnic cleansing." See the next article in FreeSpeakBlog, "Black Genocide - Maafa21."
If you have been victimized by The Cochran Firm frauds, let us hear from you. Racketeering is unlawful.
