To the millions of Americans who followed the O.J. Simpson case with rapt attention, one figure stood out: Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. But behind the man in the media is a life spent in the trenches of the American legal system, fighting not just for clients as high profile as O.J., but for individuals whose voices are too often JOURNEY TO JUSTICE, Johnnie Cochran illuminates Author: Johnnie Cochran.   Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. was born on October 2, in Shreveport, Louisiana. His great-grandparents were slaves and his grandfather was a sharecropper. His father, Johnnie Cochran, Sr., and mother, Hattie B. Cochran, raised Johnnie with a work ethic that would take him from the Jim Crow Era South to the upper echelon of the American legal system.

  A dream sequence is set in hell, where the devil's main disciples are Genghis Khan, Adolf Hitler, the serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer, and Johnnie Cochran, who, a song explains, is there. Johnnie Cochran’s successful defense of football star O.J. Simpson in a murder trial made him, for a time, the most famous trial lawyer in America. Cochran’s triumphant cry to the jury after Simpson had struggled to put on the killer’s abandoned glove — “If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit!” — was the signature moment of the widely-televised trial.

Johnnie Cochran had been famed as a folksy oratory in Los Angeles courtrooms since the s, but the O.J. Simpson trial catapulted him to international fame--a status he gladly acknowledges in this bare-knuckles memoir of his years in court. Cochran doesn't spend much time revisiting the Simpson case (except to proclaim O.J. innocent).   O.J.'s winning lead defense attorney, Johnnie L. Cochran Jr., drew criticism for raising Hitler and the Holocaust in his final day of arguments last week. Jewish agencies immediately denounced the rhetoric, while a local Jewish lawyer said the suffering of his family at Nazi hands was a source for Cochran's remarks.
