85 Years of Hope

In 2018, Chain | Cohn | Clark celebrated its 85th anniversary. To commemorate this landmark, partners David Cohn, Jim Yoro, and Matt Clark sat down to swap stories about the firm’s origins and enduring values.

When Morris Chain founded his Bakersfield legal practice in 1934, he worked 18-hour days investigating cases and defending clients in court—probably without any inkling that he was establishing a Kern County institution.

Today, Chain | Cohn | Clark is the county’s leading personal injury and workers’ compensation law firm. We’ve garnered more multimillion-dollar results for our clients than any other firm in the area.

Changing Times and Enduring Values

Although the world looks vastly different today than it did when Chain | Cohn | Clark was founded at the height of the Great Depression, the firm’s values remain the same.

Morris Chain built a reputation as a lawyer who fought “for the little guys.”

In the videos below, filmed on the occasion of Chain | Cohn | Clark’s 85th anniversary in 2018, partners David Cohn, Matt Clark, and James Yoro discuss the firm’s work and values:

  • Today, David Cohn says, “the backbone of the firm” is still representing working men and women—particularly those who have been injured or killed through the carelessness or deliberate actions of other individuals or entities.
  • Matt Clark explains that at Chain | Cohn | Clark, we recognize that the people who walk through our doors are hurting—recovering from injuries, coping with a death in the family, or seeking justice. We aim to right the wrongs our clients have suffered.
  • James Yoro, who has been with Chain | Cohn | Clark since 1982, shares how one client’s gratitude has stayed with him for years. After Yoro successfully petitioned for his injured client to receive the disability benefits he deserved, the client—flanked by his family—stopped him and said, “Thank you for giving us hope.”
