Founding Partner


Samuel A. Cherry, Jr. was born and raised in Dothan, Alabama, and has been practicing law for the past 36 years. Mr. Cherry is nationally acclaimed for verdicts and settlements in products liability cases where, as the lead attorney for the plaintiff, he has obtained over $160 million for his clients. He has been very instrumental in the development of product liability claims against manufacturers of defective aerial lift devices. As a result of his efforts, new and better safety features have been incorporated within the aerial lift device industry.

Mr. Cherry's life experiences have prepared him for representing those injured in accidents since, at the age of 11, he was involved in a horrible vehicle accident that cost him his left eye and seriously disfigured his face. He suffered numerous orthopedic injuries involving his spine, arms and legs, was unconscious for 3 weeks and endured over 20 surgeries in attempts to correct some of the damage. As such, Mr. Cherry understands the pain and suffering which his clients face.

In 1998, Mr. Cherry was one of the four founding partners in what became known as The Cochran Firm which grew into a National Law Firm with offices in over 20 cities across the country. Mr. Cherry continues to own 40% of the National Firm and remains very active in it on a National level.

Known and respected by his clients and his colleagues in the legal profession, Mr. Cherry has an AV rating in personal injury, litigation and products liability, given by his fellow lawyers and judges which is the highest rating which can be obtained. Mr. Cherry is licensed to practice law in Alabama, Tennessee and Washington, DC. Mr. Cherry is a sustaining member of the American Association for Justice, the Alabama Association for Justice, and the Million Dollar Advocate Forum.
