    Hezekiah Sistrunk and The Cochran Firm, where he is both the managing partner of the Atlanta office and a national partner, regularly defraud African Americans. This happens so often that I wonder if they are CoIntelPro agents. See "Beware of Treacherous Lawyers: The Cochran Firm" (an online article by Mary Neal) to learn about hundreds of people who were defrauded by The Cochran Firm since Johnnie Cochran‘s demise. Many of us seek an attorney to sue the firm‘s partners for RICO Act Racketeering.
