Workers’ Comp Attorney Ben Cochran Helps Create a ‘New Type of Law Firm For Today’s Day And Age’

Partnering With Veteran North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyer Ken Hardison, Workers’ Comp Attorney Ben Cochran Helps Create a ‘New Type of Law Firm For Today’s Day And Age

Raleigh, NC – June 8, 2011 – Since Attorney Ken Hardison launched his North Carolina based law practice in 1982, the firm has undergone numerous name changes based on different partners, as well as shifts in the types of cases it primarily handles. In 2000, shortly after its focus became what it is today—injury and disability law—Ben Cochran was in his second year at Campbell Law School in Buies Creek when he responded to an ad for a summer clerkship.

Hardison and Cochran hit it off immediately, bonded by the same goals and value system, and Hardison was able to mentor Cochran and bring him along at a faster pace than most clerks. Cochran, who has the rare distinction of being a Board Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation, became Hardison’s partner in 2006.

Hardison & Cochran, whose website slogan says “We Make It Happen By Putting You First,” has grown since then from six to 11 lawyers—and Cochran has been the firm’s highest earning attorney.  As the Managing Partner of the Firm, he holds memberships in the American Trial Lawyers Association, the North Carolina Bar Association, and the North Carolina Advocates for Justice where he is in the Leaders’ Forum. A compassionate believer in educating others of their rights, he often speaks publicly and has authored a book for residents of the Tar Heel State entitled “Nine Common Mistakes That Can Ruin Your Workers’ Compensation Case And How To Avoid Making Them.”

From the start of their unique partnership, Hardison and Cochran were dedicated to the belief that a new type of law firm was needed in today’s day and age. Their vision centers on providing outstanding results gained from an experienced team of professionals with personal attention to the client and uncompromising integrity. Every attorney, paralegal, and staff member at Hardison & Cochran is committed to meeting the needs of the client.

The firm’s focus on making things happen and putting the client first has proven successful. From the original office located in Dunn, North Carolina (some 35 miles east of Raleigh), the firm has grown to add offices in Raleigh,  Fayetteville,  Southern Pines,  Durham, Wilmington, and New Bern.
