Johnnie Cochran Jr. is bringing his celebrity and legal skill to Chicago. A spokesman for Cochran said he will form a partnership with personal injury attorney James D. Montgomery. Details of the partnership are expected to be released on or about March 2, when the union is made formal. The Chicago Sun-Times reported Cochran considers Chicago to be a viable market. And Montgomery told the paper Cochran will bring good lawyering skills and the reputation of his growing national firm to Chicago. The Cochran Firm, which last fall merged with Schneider, Kleinick, Weitz, Damashek & Shoot in New York, is considered the largest plaintiffs’ negligence firm in the country with more than 60 civil trial attorneys in five states — California, New York, Illinois, Alabama and Georgia. The name of the Chicago firm, according to the Cochran Firm Web site, is to be Cochran, Cherry, Givens, Smith & Montgomery.
