New Chain | Cohn | Clark ad thanks Bakersfield, Kern County for voting us ‘the best’
The words are simple and sincere: “Thank you for making us Kern County’s best law firm. We stand for justice for you — the people of Kern County.”
This is the message that the Bakersfield-based personal injury law firm of Chain | Cohn | Clark had for the entire Kern County community who voted the firm as “Best Law Firm” for 2014, and managing partner David K Cohn as a “favorite” lawyer.
The honors were unveiled in the May issue of Bakersfield Life Magazine, which is the “Best of Bakersfield” issue, where winners of The Bakersfield Californian’s Readers Choice Poll are announced each year. In that issue, CCS was chosen as the best law firm, and Cohn was chosen as one of the top three lawyers in Bakersfield. In fact, three lawyers at CCS — Cohn, Matt Clark and David Stiles — were nominated for the honor.
In the following June issue of Bakersfield Life Magazine, Chain | Cohn | Clark wanted to thank those who voted for the law firm, and its lawyers, as the best in town. The law firm decided to feature a full-page ad in the June issue, thanking our Bakersfield community for choosing us.
In the same issue of Bakersfield Life Magazine, CCS was featured in the Business Profile section for its 80-year anniversary. Included in the feature were various relevant questions and answer, such as:
What is the history of Chain | Cohn | Clark in Bakersfield?
Our law firm was founded in 1934 by Morris B. Chain, a local legend in Kern County courtrooms. Eventually, the firm developed practices in personal injury, wrongful death and social security disability, which are the core of the firm today. Some of the most respected names in local law were bred out of this firm, and our current attorneys continue to be the most respected in their fields – not only in Bakersfield and Kern County, but across the state.
Chain died in 1977, but his values are carried on today by David K. Cohn, other dedicated attorneys, and the firm’s professional staff.
How does Chain | Cohn | Clark stand out from other firms today?
As the oldest personal injury law firm in Bakersfield, with our attorneys and staff bred locally, we have an extra edge that a firm outside of Kern County – or in Kern County for that matter – would never have. We care about Kern County, and we hold those accountable to make sure our residents are treated properly.
What firm accomplishments stand out from the last 80 years?
Our firm has more multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements than any other local law firm, and we’ve recovered more than half a billion dollars on behalf of our clients. Besides that, our commitment to help those in our local community has made workplaces safer. We’ve consistently held large corporations accountable – oilfield and agriculture companies included –which, in turn, has made workplaces safer for our community’s workers.
We’re also very proud of the deep connection this firm has made with our community – the firm’s roots are embedded in giving back. Our attorneys sit on local boards, including Clinica Sierra Vista, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and CASA Kern County, among many others. And our employees give back in many ways, too, including hosting teams for March of Dimes and Relay for Life, sharing their expertise at the university level, and donating their time to volunteer for local causes.
CCS plans to continue to thanks its local community for its trust and confidence.
