The Freedom Bell Rings for America to Pay Tribute to Noted Attorney

Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr.

Los Angeles, CA – (March 29, 2005) – The family of Attorney Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. and members of The Cochran Firm are deeply saddened by the passing of Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. The world has lost not only a legendary attorney, but an outstanding humanitarian. He passed away at his home today at 12:30 p.m. of a brain tumor.

Certainly, Johnnie’s career will be noted as one marked by “celebrity” cases and clientele. But he and his family were most proud of the work he did on behalf of those in the community. As Johnnie always said, “an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” It was his rallying cry as he worked to right many wrongs, and as he provided a voice to those who needed to be heard. He was deeply committed to helping and inspiring others—especially young people. His extraordinary law career will undoubtedly stand the test of time. But it was his devotion to his fellow human beings that will remain as his true legacy.

Final arrangements will be announced at a later date.
