Luchando por Justicia: Chain | Cohn | Stiles serves local Latino, Hispanic residents

November 16, 2016 | 6:00 am


Since its early days, the Bakersfield-based law firm Chain | Cohn | Stiles has served injured people from all walks of life, no matter of age, gender, race or sexual preference.

In fact, the law firm has been at the forefront of progressiveness in Kern County, credited for employing one of the first female attorneys in the area and one of the first black attorneys, among other milestones.

The same goes for serving and employing Kern County’s Latino and Hispanic residents, which now represents around 50 percent of all residents in the area.

Simply said: The law firm, its employees and its community are one in the same.

The injury, accident and workers’ compensation law firm Chain | Cohn | Stiles has made available a Spanish language website in order to better serve the local Latino and Hispanic population. You can view that website by clicking here, or visiting abogadosenbakersfield.com.

And recently, Chain | Cohn | Stiles partnered with La Caliente 96.9 to assist Spanish radio station listeners who need help with their potential accident, injury or workers’ compensation* cases. In fact, workers’ compensation associate attorney Beatriz Trejo and personal injury lawyer Heather Rodriguez, who are bilingual in English and Spanish, have become a regular on El Show De Cascabel, a Spanish language show. The radio program is hosted by Juan Leal, who goes by the nickname “El Cascabel,” and Marina Moreno, whose alias is “La China.” The widely popular Kern County show airs on FM station 96.9 from 2 to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The law firm and its employees are also deeply involved in community efforts that serve the local Hispanic population, including Kern County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Latina Leaders of Kern County, among others.

The message relayed to listeners is that Chain | Cohn | Stiles is “Standing for Justice” for all residents of Kern County — or, in Spanish, “Luchando por Justicia.”

You can listen to various Spanish radio interviews featuring Trejo and Rodriguez below:
