Mediator Charles F. Forer explains why The Cochran Firm's fraud against a class of black plaintiffs in California (clients) would not have worked in Pennsylvania. The Cochran Firm had its clients sign a mediation agreement for mediation that never happened and was probably not even planned. The unethical lawyers then fraudulently switched the signature page to a settlement agreement the clients did not know about and had not approved. (The Cochran Firm often works behind its clients' backs to help their defendants avoid accountability.) The outraged clients sued The Cochran Firm for fraud, but their lawsuit was dismissed from California court, and the CA Supreme Court would not even hear their appeal against The Cochran Firm. Why? Because the clients had been tricked into signing a confidentiality agreement regarding the nonexistent mediation.
The first of six(6) links below contains an explanation by Mr. Forer, a member in the Philadelphia office of Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott, LLC, where he practices all types of Alternative Dispute Resolution, both as a neutral and as counsel to parties engaged in ADR. He is a former co-chair of both the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee and the Fee Disputes Committee.
I would like an explanation as to how The Cochran Firm office in Atlanta was allowed to claim in Georgia Superior Court in Fulton County that it was a locally owned and operated law firm in the State of Georgia - "Cochran Cherry Givens Smith & Sistrunk, P.C. (CCGSS)." CCGSS disclaimed having any affiliation whatsoever with The Cochran Firm (national office) or with The Cochran Firm's law offices in Memphis, Tennessee and elsewhere. Why were The Cochran Firm's defense lawyers, Carlock, Copeland, Semler & Stair, LLP, allowed to present perjury in Georgia courts and defraud the court into wrongly dismissing the Neal's lawsuit against The Cochran Firm by claiming the lawsuit was served not to a Cochran Firm office (a void judgment)? A few other explanations would be appreciated to these questions:
1. Why do The Cochran Firm's law offices contract with people of color and then defraud those clients to rescue police departments and major corporations from its clients' legal actions?
2. Why did attorneys from CCGSS register with Georgia courts and the State Bar as being from Cochran Cherry Givens Smith & Sistrunk, P.C., operating at 127 Peachtree Street, Atlanta, GA, when no such professional corporation was registered with the Secretary of State's office at any time? CCGSS was not registered as a d/b/a in the State of Georgia or any of its counties.
3. When sued, why did CCGSS falsely disclaim any association with the Memphis office of The Cochran Firm when in fact, Cochran Cherry Givens Smith & Sistrunk, P.C. was actually a professional corporation registered with Tennessee's Secretary of State's office using the same address as the Memphis office of The Cochran Firm?
4. When the Neals sued The Cochran Firm, the lawsuit was served to CCGSS in Atlanta. Why did CCGSS falsely claim in court that it had no association with the national office of The Cochran Firm while CCGSS continued to advertise, receive and sign for mail, send mail as, and answer the phone as being "The Cochran Firm Atlanta"?
5. Why is "The Cochran Firm Atlanta" office listed as a law office operating under the national office of The Cochran Firm on the national law firm's website?
6. Why does The Cochran Firm advertise itself as being ONE of the nation's largest plaintiffs' law firms with numerous offices throughout the United States if that is false advertising?
7. Why is The Cochran Firm allowed to do U.S. Mail fraud, sending its clients false status reports about legal actions the firm is not actually doing? The Neals' wrongful death case file was empty after holding Larry Neal's wrongful death and negligence lawsuits secretly inactive while the Tennessee statute of limitations passed.
8. The Cochran Firm attorneys defraud their clients regularly to reduce or eliminate payouts on lawsuits, especially lawsuits against police departments and certain major corporations. As plaintiffs' attorneys, The Cochran Firm receives a percentage of its clients' winnings. Who pays The Cochran Firm when its attorneys lose a case or deliberately reduce their own income by defrauding clients?
9. By what authority do police deny me the right to inform and warn my fellow black and brown people about The Cochran Firm fraud against its own clients throughout the USA? Police in Georgia threatened to Taser and arrest me for exposing my disabled brother's lynching and The Cochran Firm fraud that prevented justice. Larry Neal was killed after 18 days of secret incarceration in Memphis Shelby County Jail, a jail that Julian Bolton, a Cochran Firm managing partner at the time, was in overview of as a County Commissioner. My computers and phones are monitored and controlled to prevent calls and emails to/from parties with whom police do not wish for me to communicate. See a list of offenses in
10. Why is protecting The Cochran Firm fraud considered important to the federal government, which was in direct overview of Memphis Shelby County Jail when Larry Neal was secretly incarcerated and murdered there? The United States Department of Justice was in overview of the jail after lawsuit by the USA for its pattern of inmate abuse. Yet, the Neals are denied any information and documents about this disabled man's kidnapping and murder, which federal authorities and Shelby County officials colluded to withhold from reports to the USA. Larry's murder is treated like a national secret.
11. Is the elaborate Cochran Firm fraud that involved collusion among many parties to cover up the secret arrest and wrongful death of Larry Neal in Shelby County Jail and The Cochran Firm's perversion of justice for hundreds of other black/brown clients an example of systemic racism and RICO Act racketeering? Is CoIntelPro still operational today through The Cochran Firm fraud?
See a partial list of its former clients, former attorneys, and law firms that alleged fraud and some filed lawsuits against The Cochran Firm for defrauding them in recent years at the article below:

Congratulations to Mediator Charles F. Forer for explaining how The Cochran Firm's fraud against a class of black employees was allowed to elude prosecution in California courts. The Cochran Firm found a loophole in the law and fraudulently substituted the clients' signature page for a mediation document onto an unauthorized settlement agreement. But there is no legal loophole for what The Cochran Firm did to prevent justice for the Neal family regarding Larry Neal's secret arrest and murder in Memphis Shelby County Jail. Therefore, the unethical law firm presented perjury before Georgia courts and disclaimed its own identity, and I have been persecuted, stalked, and censored ever since it happened to prevent disclosure and legal recourse.
The Cochran Firm gives the appearance of being a continuation of the FBI's CoIntelPro War on Black America - giving the appearance of justice after wrongs done to blacks while actually working to prevent justice. See the video at YouTube link http://youtu.be/Zwdx1ewLBYA and embedded below:
