“I was hesitant at first to move forward with the case. I don’t like confrontations and I don’t like the idea of suing. But I felt better once the process was explained to me that we’re not suing people, but we’re making sure insurance is able to compensate me for my injuries. My medical bills were piling up. I’m glad I called … Any time I needed to talk about the case, they were available to talk to me.  The attorney even gave me his personal cell phone number. He would put me at ease about the case.”

– Tammy H., who was attacked by a dog while delivering a package.

“The case didn’t change the heartache that was there. That’s a void that doesn’t get filled — it’s always going to be there. But Chain Cohn Stiles helped give me a peace in laying her to rest. They were compassionate. When you have good people behind you, like at this law firm, it helps you cope with what you’re going through already.”

– Denise N., whose daughter was killed after being struck by a DUI driver.

“Chain | Cohn | Stiles did a great job representing me in a case against my former insurance company. In April 2011, my son and I were involved in a roll-over accident which was caused by a driver who fled the scene of the accident. However, Mr. Stiles and his staff understood my situation, were very professional, and best of all, knew what they were doing! The service was outstanding and the interaction with everyone, from paralegals to attorneys, was so great that I felt right at home. I am so pleased with the outcome of my case, the accommodations, and the personal treatment by this law firm that I always recommend their services whenever possible.”

– Abel N., who suffered from terrible neck and back injuries as a result of a serious rollover auto accident while taking her son to music class.

“The lawyers and staff at Chain | Cohn | Stiles are some of the most heartfelt, trustworthy and caring people I have ever worked with. They made sure that my whole family and I were treated like family, and we never had our questions unanswered. They always kept us up to par on all they were doing, and so I must say they will forever be appreciated by myself and my whole family. I thank you all for everything you have done for my family and I. You guys and girls truly changed my life. I am forever grateful! Keep up all the great work.”

– John A., who suffered serious burn injuries when a steam line blew out.

“If you come here first, you won’t have to go anywhere else. I’ve seen the commercials from some of the other lawyers, saying they’re going to get you the most money. I’d recommend anyone give this place a shot first. You’ll get the best treatment … I was in a financial bind with missing work (after the accident), and I had medical appointments out of town. The firm helped pay. There wasn’t that added stress about finances along with my health. It made me feel like family. That’s something you’d expect from a family member.”

– Frank P., who was rear-ended on Rosedale Highway and suffered several injuries.

“They are the best lawyers in town. They came to see me in the hospital after my accident, and I was so nervous. But they reassured me everything was going to be OK, and I didn’t have to worry about anything. I trusted them. Overall, I was satisfied with the way everything went. They did so much for me, and gave me confidence.”

– Marilyn B., who was injured after a driver ran a stop sign and broadsided her vehicle.

“I didn’t know what had happened after the accident, and I didn’t know anything about the legal system. But after the first meeting with David Cohn, I knew he was on my side and I was going to be OK. I had no problem worrying about the firm taking care of business. He was a big help. Now, I have no worries and no regrets.”

– Michael C., who suffered a leg amputation following a motorcycle accident in which a driver made a sudden left turn in front of him.

“I was glad they were honest with me. They kept things realistic, and explained how things worked. They were confident, and made sure I felt comfortable. Mr. Cohn was always honest. I heard they were the best in town, and they were right.”

– Joseph F., who suffered serious injuries when he was struck by a rail car while operating a crane.

“When we came here, I was in a traumatic state, and I had a hard time talking and remembering everything. But they (Chain | Cohn | Stiles) put us at ease. It’s important to feel comfortable. It’s like going to a doctor. You want to feel comfortable with your lawyer. Thank God for them. They have high integrity. I have already referred them. If you’re not sure what to do, come in and talk to them, and learn what you could do. That’s what we did. I was scared to death after the accident. I’ve never gone through any of this, and I didn’t want to go through this by myself. It would have been easy to get taken advantage of by our insurance company. But the law firm took care of us, and took care of everything.”

– Colleen L., who was injured when she was hit by an uninsured motorist while crossing the street.

“It is very easy for me to understand why Matt (Clark) has received the distinctions of Super Lawyers Rising Stars and Bakersfield’s ’20 Under 40 People to Watch.’ His professionalism and communication were, in my opinion, outstanding, and I feel he went above and beyond to assist me throughout the whole process. During my two-year interaction with Matt, not only did we meet face to face, but I feel Matt made it a priority to contact me and keep me up to date via phone calls and after-hour emails. I would recommend Chain | Cohn | Stiles to anyone.”

– Garret G., who was injured when the limousine he was riding in crashed with a big rig.

“Because of this experience, my life has changed. I used to live in the homeless shelter. I had nowhere else to go. Then this incident happened, and Chain Cohn Stiles helped me at the right time. It’s like I can start over now, thanks to them. It was the best treatment ever. They were patient with me when I was not patient … I’m grateful I chose this law firm. I hope I never have to call an attorney again, but if I do, it’ll be Chain Cohn Stiles.”

– Marciell C., who suffered severe injuries when she was bitten by several dogs.

“My medical bills were piling up, and I was told I had to go back to work, but I was still hurt. I was worried, and I was feeling bad still. I figured I needed an attorney to help me figure out what to do next. (Chain Cohn Stiles) treated me with a lot of respect. They were open. I had a bad impression of attorneys before I came in here. It seemed like more trouble hiring an attorney than they’re worth. But I was impressed with the work here. I was confident in the staff doing the work, and I knew ultimately I would be OK. Now that my case is finished, I’m very happy. Whenever I know someone who gets hurt on the job, I’ll be happy to recommended this law firm.”

– Roberto G., who was injured on the job before seeking workers’ compensation* help.

“They talked to me through everything and even helped me look for a therapist to help me deal with everything. They made sure I was well taken care of. We think of them like family now. They made the whole process 10 times easier than it could have gone.” … Plaintiff’s Mother: “I felt like they wanted to help, and we felt safe and comfortable. Never did we feel pressure to do anything we didn’t want to do. I felt like they really felt the trauma we were going through. Our problems were their problems. As a mother, I was appreciative. We’ll always remember how they treated us. It was a tough time and they took care of us. They will always have a place in my heart. To me, they are family.”

– Confidential Plaintiff, who was sexually assaulted by a law enforcement officer

“I know I needed a lawyer when the accident happened. My wife called, and Matt (Clark) came to see us in the hospital. I knew right then and there that he was going to be our lawyer. He explained all of the steps I needed to take, and we were confident he would do a great job. Going through the case, Matt explained everything to me. He explained all options, and we understood it all. Even in personal struggles, Matt helped us get through some tough times. It’s a really good office with really good lawyers.”

– Kevin M., who suffered severe injuries when he slipped on a wet floor while on crutches
