Chain | Cohn | Clark Selected in 2021 ‘Best of Kern County’ Poll (Best Lawyer / Best Law Firm / Best Business)

As we all experienced, the past year was incredibly tough, especially for local businesses.

Still, Chain | Cohn | Clark remained open during the pandemic as local residents in Kern County still needed legal help. This included current clients with active cases at the law firm, as well as those who suffered injuries in accidents and were new to hiring our law firm.

Those circumstances make this year’s “Best of Kern County” Readers’ Choice Poll results in Bakersfield Life Magazine extra special, as Chain | Cohn | Clark was chosen in in the top three in these categories:

  • Best Law Firm
  • Best Lawyer (David Cohn)
  • Best Medium-Large Business

This is the ninth year in a row that the law firm has been selected into the “Best Law Firm” category, each year since the category was introduced. Attorney David Cohn has been selected into the category multiple times. This is the first year the poll has made available “Best Medium-Large Business” as category.

“The annual Best of Readers’ Choice Poll showcases the best of the best — from food and shopping to entertainment and services — as decided by those who call Bakersfield home,” editors of Bakersfield Life Magazine said. “Even though 2020 saw many changes locally and the pandemic impacted all types of businesses, readers still showed up to honor their favorites around town.”

Law firm managing partner David Cohn added: “We are committed to helping our injured neighbors day in and day out, no matter what is going on in our world. We are incredibly grateful, and will continue to work on behalf of the amazing people of Kern County.”
