Years In Practice


Phone Number (202) 682-5800
The Cochran Firm, D.C.’s managing partner has been representing clients throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia since the office’s founding.  He has significant experience handling cases involving commercial vehicle and trucking collisions, gas explosions, carbon monoxide poisoning, drowning, fires, inadequate security, medical malpractice, train collisions, product liability, and police misconduct, among others.  David has handled dozens of cases involving wrongful death, paralysis, loss of limb, loss of sight, brain injury, and other very serious injuries, often against large corporations or municipalities, securing some of the largest verdicts and settlements of their kind.

David was named a Super Lawyer for 2013, 2014, and 2015 in Personal Injury for Washington. D.C.  Only up to 5 percent of D.C. attorneys are selected as Super Lawyers. The selection process involves an in-depth, measurable process that includes peer nominations by seasoned attorneys followed by detailed evaluations that are matched against third-party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.  In 2015 he was named to the Best Lawyers in America in Washington, D.C. for Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice.

As lead counsel, David has obtained numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for his clients. Virginia Lawyer’s Weekly recognized attorney Haynes in 2006 after he achieved one of the largest verdicts in Virginia that year, which was upheld on appeal and collected.  He was recognized in 2012 by the same publication for securing two of the ten largest settlements in all of Virginia that year, both of which were wrongful death cases.

He has also been appointed by various Courts to leadership positions in complex injury litigation, including:

  • Co-liaison counsel for all Plaintiffs In the Matter of the Fort Totten Metrorail Cases Arising Out of the Events of June 22, 2009. U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Case No.: 10-mc-00314, a train collision resulted in the death of 9 people and injuries to 85 others.
  • Member of the Plaintiffs Steering Committee in Jane Doe No. 1, et al. v. Johns Hopkins Hospital, et al. Circuit Court for Baltimore City, Case No. 24-C-13-001041 MM, a class action for sexual abuse and privacy violations by an OB/GYN which is comprised of over 8,000 class members.

David has lectured at multiple legal conferences to other lawyers, including the National Trial Lawyer Summit and Mass Torts Made Perfect. He has been interviewed or quoted by numerous national and local news outlets, including NBC National News and The Wall Street Journal. David is often called upon to comment on legal issues of the day and he is a regular contributor on the Ring of Fire radio and TV show.

Active in the community, David is a member of the Board of Directors of the Abramson Scholarship Foundation, a not-for-profit charitable organization that provides scholarships for disadvantaged high school graduates going on to college and fellowships for law school graduates who accept non-profit public interest positions.
