Eighty years ago, Morris B. Chain set up shop in the Haberfelde building in downtown Bakersfield. He quickly became one of the San Joaquin Valley’s most prolific attorneys, and laid the foundation for one of Kern County’s leading law firms, Chain | Cohn | Stiles.
Bakersfield Life Magazine, in its latest December issue, highlighted the Bakersfield-based personal injury law firm’s 80-year anniversary, which is this year.
The article continues:
“Chain led a successful practice that, through the years, has been filled mostly with attorneys and staff with deep local roots. Like Chain, their mission has been to fight for ‘the little guy.’
Today, the firm that still bears the Chain name is celebrating 80 years in Bakersfield. Though the name has changed through the years, today’s law firm, Chain Cohn Stiles, remains one of the best-known legal firms in Kern County.
This year, Chain Cohn Stiles has finalized the purchase of a historic 30,000-square-foot building at the southwest corner of 18th Street and Chester Avenue. The firm will move in 2015, opening yet another chapter for Kern County’s oldest personal injury law firm, while continuing to serve clients in downtown Bakersfield.

The Kern County law firm throughout 2014 has commemorated its 80-year anniversary in various ways, including partnering with the City of Bakersfield in a freeway litter cleanup project.
In the same issue of Bakersfield Life, the magazine featured an advertisement by Chain | Cohn | Stiles that highlighted the testimonial of a real-life client. It read:
“If you’re not sure what to do, come in and talk to them. That’s what we did. I was scared to death after the accident. I’ve never gone through any of this, and I didn’t want to go through by myself. It would have been easy to get taken advantage of by our insurance company. But the law firm took care of us, and took care of everything. Thank God for them. They have high integrity.”
Chain | Cohn | Stiles has served its community for 80 years, and looks forward to continuing to serve for many more. If you are injured due to the fault of another, or are seeking workers’ compensation assistance, contact the law firm at 661-323-4000 or visit the website Chainlaw.com.
