Each year, Kern County nominates, votes on, and chooses the best restaurants, shops, services and people in our community through The Bakersfield Californian‘s “Best of Kern County” Readers’ Choice Poll. And each year since the category was introduced, Kern County selects Chain | Cohn | Stiles into the “Best Law Firm” category.

This year is no different.

Chain | Cohn | Stiles has been selected into the “Best Law Firm” category as a “favorite” in the 2020 “Best of Kern County” poll, with results announced in the May issue of Bakersfield Life Magazine.⁣ ⁣

“Thank you Kern County for voting Chain | Cohn | Stiles into the ‘Best Law Firm’ category yet again,” said David K. Cohn, managing partner and personal injury attorney with the law firm. “We remain committed to helping our injured neighbors day in and day out, and helping them move forward with their lives after their traumatic experiences. While helping put the pieces of their lives back together is reward enough, this recognition is truly icing on the cake.”

This is the eighth year in a row that the law firm has been selected into the “Best Law Firm” category. For more than 25 years, The Bakersfield Californian has conducted the Best of Readers’ Choice Poll to showcase the people, places and things that make Kern County truly unique. This year the listings contained 98 winners and 196 favorites.

Besides the 2020 “Best of Kern County” results, Bakersfield Life Magazine also unveiled the latest additions to the “Best of Kern County Hall of Fame,” awarded to men, women, businesses, and organizations with a long history of excellence in their respective fields, and who also give back to our community.

Similarly, earlier this year Chain | Cohn | Stiles was selected for inclusion in the 2020 “Best Law Firms” list by U.S. News & World Report.

Achieving a ranking “signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.” A law firm must have at least one attorney who has received high enough peer reviews to be recognized in the current “Best Lawyers in America” program, which is the oldest and among the most respected attorney ranking services in the world. In fact, Chain | Cohn | Stiles has two attorneys selected as “Best Lawyers.” David K.
