About me

" I'll also indicate that [Petitioner] has indicated that he is not represented right. Two things I want to mention in this case. Mr. Okorocha is privately retained counsel, and I think he is not only a competent attorney but quite an excellent one. He got rid of count 1 which is the life tail count not exposing [Petitioner] on the life charge in this case."


Finding of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California in BRUNSON v. CASH, Feb. 28, 2013.

  • Robert Louis Miller

    Mr. Okorocha is sharp and always willing to lend advice in his area of expertise. I communicate with Okorie often through an online legal community that we are both colleagues and members in, and have even seen him in court, and I often see things in a different light after reading his sharp analysis or after speaking to him. He is not only heartily endorsed, but a credit to whatever client or matter he is working on. Highest recommendation.

    Okorie is a straight shooting, fast-thinking attorney that is well-educated and respected in his field. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
