Bob Cochran is a former prosecutor and trial lawyer with over 26 years of experience. In 2018, he left a large law firm in Columbus, Ohio to start his own firm and focus on representing individuals and businesses charged with a crime or facing a government investigation. He also represents health care providers under investigation for Medicare, Medicaid, and other types of health care fraud, as well as licensing and regulatory problems and issues.

Bob previously served as an Assistant County Prosecutor and Assistant Ohio Attorney General where he prosecuted environmental crimes and later served as the Assistant Chief of Ohio’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
