Nearly 50 years ago, the Bakersfield personal injury law firm Chain | Cohn | Stiles pioneered Group Law Services, which provides legal assistance to the working people in Kern County.

Members of Group Law Services groups and businesses can take full advantage of membership benefits including free consultations, reduced legal fees and notary assistance.

Chain | Cohn | Stiles is proud to partner once again this year with the California Correctional Peace Officers Association, which represents more than 30,000 correctional peace officers working inside California’s prisons and youth facilities, and the state’s parole agents who supervise inmates after their release.

According to the CCPOA, the group’s mission is to promote and enhance the correctional profession, protect the safety of those engaged in corrections and advocate for the laws, funding and policies needed to improve prison operations and protect public safety.

“Over the years, CCPOA has won a number of key reforms, including psychological screening for new officers, additional training and improved safety equipment and practices,” the CCPOA states on its website. “CCPOA has a long, proud history of safeguarding the rights and welfare of the men and women it represents – dedicated professionals who do a tough, dangerous and essential job.”

The lawyers at Chain | Cohn | Stiles for decades have represented correctional officers in Kern County and across the state in various workers’ compensation* and personal injury cases. Through Group Law Services, correctional peace officers can receive these services and other benefits anytime they’re in need.

In fact, correctional officers throughout the state can see an ad for Chain | Cohn | Stiles in the PeaceKeeper, the official quarterly publication by the California Correctional Peace Officers Association. You can find the ad by clicking here.

The publication is printed to foster professionalism and communication among correctional personnel. Correctional officers who dial the number in the ad, or visit our website, get all of the legal benefits through the Group Law Services program.

If you are currently not a member of Group Law Services but are interested in becoming a member, please direct membership requests to Chain | Cohn | Stiles Marketing Director Jorge Barrientos at 661-323-4000.
