Chain | Cohn | Stiles partners with ‘El Gallito’ radio station to help listeners with legal issues

January 31, 2018 | 9:52 am


In an effort to raise awareness throughout Kern County on how to protect you and your families in the case of an injury or accident, Chain | Cohn | Stiles has partnered with a local Spanish radio station to provide legal insight during interviews.

The 30-minute interviews will run once per month on KCHJ “El Gallito” 1010 AM and 92.1 FM, a radio station that broadcasts primarily ranchera and Norteño  oldies reaching Bakersfield, Delano and extending throughout other Central Valley areas, such as Visalia and Tulare.

It’s hosted by local radio and TV personality Pepe Reyes, who has also hosted the morning show “Despierta Bakersfield” on Univision.

The first 30-minute interview, featuring Chain | Cohn | Stiles associate workers’ compensation attorney Beatriz Trejo, will air at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 7, on KCHJ “El Gallito” 1010 AM and 92.1 FM.

The goal of the show and partnership is to assist radio station listeners who need help with their potential accident, injury or workers’ compensation* cases.

Questions answered by Trejo on the first show included:

  • What do you do if you’re injured at work, and what steps should you take?
  • What if I’m hurt and I am not a citizen?
  • How does Chain Cohn Stiles stand out compared to other law firms?

Future interviews with Pepe Reyes will continue to feature Beatriz Trejo, who will answer listeners legal questions and provide insight on legal issues of the day. The shows will also feature Chain | Cohn | Stiles director of marketing and public relations Jorge Barrientos, who will discuss the law firm’s work throughout the community that includes combating DUI crimes, and increasing pedestrian and bicycle safety, among other efforts.

Recently, you might have seen Pepe Reyes when he helped re-enact “El Grito de Dolores” Mexican Independence chant during the annual celebration in September in downtown Bakersfield, hosted by the Kern County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Trejo, who is bilingual in English and Spanish, has also become a regular of sorts on El Show De Cascabel, a Spanish language show on 96.9 FM, as well as on Radio Lazer, 106.5 FM. On those shows, as well, she discusses the law firm’s services, and answers questions from listeners.

Trejo earned her bachelor’s degree from Cal State Bakersfield and her master’s degree from Cal State Northridge. She earned her law degree from the University of Akron School of Law in Ohio. Before joining Chain | Cohn | Stiles, Trejo was a defense attorney who practiced in front of the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board — she is familiar with the inner workings of insurance companies, insurance carriers, and self-insured employers. She is currently the president of the California Applicants’ Attorneys Association (CAAA), Bakersfield Chapter. She is also the 2017 winner of the “Young Workers’ Compensation Lawyer of the Year” by the State Bar Workers’ Compensation Section.

Kern County’s Latin culture on display at Chain | Cohn | Stiles-sponsored Latination art exhibit

August 24, 2016 | 6:00 am


Kern County is largely populated by people of Hispanic or Latin backgrounds. In fact, just last year the U.S. Census Bureau confirmed that more than half — 52.2 percent — of Kern County’s population was Hispanic. It’s no wonder our community is host to a wide array of Latin focused cultural events and activities.

And that includes at Metro Galleries, an art gallery in downtown Bakersfield that each year hosts a celebration of Latin culture through an art exhibit and competition. It’s called “Latination,” and this year will be the eighth consecutive year that the art gallery hosts annual event — from 5 to 10 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 2. It’s free to attend.

Chain | Cohn | Stiles is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Latination 8.

 

Celebration of Culture

Don Martin, owner of Metro Galleries, started Latination eight years ago as way to honor the Latino culture and community contributions, he said. Growing up in Lamont, southwest of Bakersfield, and graduating from Arvin High School, Martin said he was able to appreciate the agriculture-based community.

“I saw and experienced Latinos at work, at play and the wonderful aspects the culture has towards family,” Martin said.

And Latination has become Metro Galleries’ largest openings. Each year, more than 4,000 people of all backgrounds attend the art exhibit.

“Each year it gets bigger and better.” Martin stated. “I think Latination has become a celebration of a culture that many here, whether Latino or otherwise, enjoy and honor.”

Local art experts and community leaders serve as judges of the art competition. The opening night also features live music and food. This year will feature local band Mento Buru, with food provided by El Pueblo Restaurant.

 

Latination Law Firm

At Chain | Cohn | Stiles, we believe it is important to embrace the Latin community. Many of our clients come from Hispanic and Latin backgrounds, and the law firm’s staff and lawyers reflect that of the Kern County community. In fact, it’s one of the most diverse offices in the area.

Connecting with people of all backgrounds is important in representing injured clients, and Latination 8 provides an opportunity to celebrate Latin culture and connect with audiences.

As for the Latin community, workers’ compensation lawyer Beatriz Trejo is one example of Chain | Cohn | Stiles being dedicated to serving and helping our Spanish-speaking audience. Trejo is bilingual in Spanish and can be heard regularly on La Caliente 96.9, a local Spanish radio station, answering legal questions from the listening audience. She is also involved in Latina Leaders of Kern County, a nonprofit organization determined to keep Latina women involved in our community.
