Throughout the O. J. Simpson murder trial, O. J. Simpson was represented by a law firm that enlisted Johnnie Cochran Jr., Alan Dershowitz and Carl Douglas. Other members of O. J. Simpson's murder trial team included Gerald Uelmen, F. Lee Bailey, Peter Neufeld, Barry Scheck and Robert Shapiro.
The trial lasted over 135 days as the prosecution of seven lawyers attempted to find Simpson guilty of the murder of Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Both victims were found stabbed to death on O. J. Simpson's property. Over 150 million people watched the trial play out on television in anticipation of the verdict. In 1995, O. J. Simpson's team succeeded as the jury did not find him guilty of the murders.
