Chain | Cohn | Clark attorney, partner Beatriz Trejo named to 2020 Super Lawyers ‘Rising Stars’ list
Beatriz A. Trejo, a partner with the law firm Chain | Cohn | Clark who focuses on workers’ compensation cases, has been named to the 2020 Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” list by Southern California Super Lawyers Magazine.
This is Trejo’s second year of earning the “Rising Stars” distinction, which is granted to just 2.5 percent of lawyers under the age of 40 in the Southern California region. Trejo was also chosen last year to the “The Top Women Attorneys in Southern California — Rising Stars” list.
“It is simply my honor to be able to do my part to help injured workers recover, to be able to take care of themselves, and their families,” said Trejo. “And it is an honor also to be recognized by Super Lawyers Magazine as a ‘Rising Star.’ I will continue to do my work diligently in serving as an advocate for injured workers through my work at Chain | Cohn | Clark.”
Trejo is a Certified Legal Specialist in Workers’ Compensation, a past recipient of the “Workers’ Compensation Young Lawyer of the Year” award in California, and she has also been recognized by her peers in the “Top Attorneys” poll voted on by local lawyers. She is past president of the California Applicants’ Attorneys Association (CAAA), Bakersfield Chapter and has been named as one of the 20 Under 40 People to Watch by Bakersfield Life Magazine.
Trejo is an active member of CAAA’s Latino Caucus, and serves on the panels of the Immigration Justice collaborative, which aim to educate immigrants on their constitutional rights. She is a frequent speaker for Kern Country Small Business Academies and serves on the CSU Bakersfield Pre-Law Advisory Committee.
Outside of the office, Trejo is involved in Latina Leaders of Kern County, Kern Country Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and Comprehensive Blood and Cancer Center Foundation of Community Wellness. She was honored in 2019 by the Latina Leaders of Kern County organization as one of the “Latinas Leading the Way.”
Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Each year, the Super Lawyers selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. According to the program, Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a multi-phase selection process where each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, including a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews. The objective of the recognition program is “to create a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of outstanding attorneys that can be used to resource for attorneys and consumers searching for legal counsel.”
As part of the honor, those selected are highlighted in issues of Southern California Super Lawyers Magazine alongside other awarded legal professionals. They also receive profiles on Super Lawyers.
Other Chain | Cohn | Clark attorneys chosen for the Super Lawyers distinction include law firm law partners David Cohn, James Yoro and Matthew Clark. The general Super Lawyers honor, for those over 40 years old, is awarded to no more than 5 percent of lawyers in the Southern California region based on a high-degree of peer recognition and personal achievement.
In 2018, Chain | Cohn | Clark received a resolution from the California Legislature for having all of its partners listed as Southern California Super Lawyers.
