Local Bakersfield Lawyers

David Cohn: It’s important for people in Kern County to be represented by a local firm. And the reason for that is that all of us in this firm have grown up in Bakersfield. We have that extra edge that, certainly, a firm outside of Kern County would never have.

Matt Clark: I grew up in Bakersfield, went to elementary school, junior high, high school, then went away to college and immediately moved back. My wife is from Bakersfield. We knew all along this is where we wanted to make our home; this is where we wanted to have our family.

Marshall Frasher: We’re part of the Kern County family. We care about Kern County, the people here. We care about the schools here. We care about the hospitals here. We do what we can to make it a better community for everybody who lives here.

James Yoro: Because we are rooted here within the community, we know the values of this community. We’re not just attorneys who represent our clients aggressively, but we represent their interests compassionately.

Neil Gehlawat: When I was in law school, I worked for a big firm, a firm that was very different from Chain | Cohn | Clark, 150 lawyers represented big companies, big corporations. What was really lacking was this sort of human element. Here at Chain | Cohn | Clark, we represent human beings.

David Stiles: All of our practice focuses on holding wrongdoers accountable for injuries or death. And our resolve is to do everything possible, legally, to make the wrongdoers, who create these accidents, to be held accountable for what they’ve done.

David Cohn: When we’re in front of a jury in a Kern County courtroom, we know the people that we’re talking to. We have the trust and the respect from the judges, from those people who work in the courts, that when we say something, they listen.

David Stiles: This firm has been in practice in Kern County for over 75 years. I’ve represented 100’s of people in Kern County and almost all of them are from Kern County. It takes other people besides the attorney to build a strong case. It takes professionals: doctors, engineers sometimes and accident reconstruction experts. We have the local connections and the local knowledge that even a very capable outside attorney wouldn’t be able to offer.

James Yoro: It’s not just what you do at the top, it’s what you do together as a team. That’s what Chain | Cohn | Clark is all about.
