New Chain | Cohn | Stiles video highlights ‘the team of lawyers you need when it matters most’

January 16, 2019 | 6:00 am


“You probably don’t need a full team of professionals all of the time, but if you get injured in an accident, you do. Chain | Cohn | Stiles, the team of lawyers you need when it matters most.”

That’s the message from the latest videos unveiled by the Bakersfield-based accident, injury and workers’ compensation law firm Chain | Cohn | Stiles, highlighting the team of attorneys helping injury clients through each and every case. The videos are airing now throughout Kern County, and can be found at Chain | Cohn | Stiles’ YouTube channel.

“We want people to know that when they choose Chain | Cohn | Stiles in their time of need, they’re not just getting one attorney working on their case,” said David Cohn, managing partner of the law firm. “You’re getting a team of lawyers, paralegals, assistants, and others who are committed to helping you resolve your case, and ultimately help you move forward with your life.”

The video features a woman driving her vehicle into a gas station only to be bombarded with service by a pit crew donning Chain | Cohn | Stiles uniforms. She is pleasantly surprised as the pit crew gives her the full-service treatment in record speed before being hailed away. While it’s nice to be helped by a team of professionals at the gas station, the message is that it is necessary to have a team of professionals when it matters most — during an accident or injury case.

The latest video follows several other breakthrough videos showcased by Chain | Cohn | Stiles, including the following (click each title to view):

  • “Meet the Attorneys”: These 90-second interview videos are aimed to give viewers a better idea of who their hometown attorneys are, why they became lawyers, and how they could help viewers in the chance they ever needed to contact the firm. The videos were second-place winners in the 2015 “Your Honor Awards,” presented by the Legal Marketing Association – which included 170 entries in 16 categories from law firms throughout the world this year – and also won first place in the advertising category in the regional California “Your Honor Awards.”
  • “On Your Mind”: These videos conveyed the message for injured clients, “You may have a lot on your mind, but we’ll only have one thing on ours — you.” That is, we hope you are never in need of an accident or injury attorney, but in the unfortunate event that you do, we can guarantee that you and your family will be our No. 1 priority. Each video features an attorney at Chain | Cohn | Stiles who has experience and expertise in handling cases similar to those victims highlighted in the videos: auto accident, oilfield accident, agriculture accident, elder abuse, and work injury.
  • “Move Forward”: Featuring a rewind, fast-forward theme, the video states, “We may not be able to press rewind on your accident, but our lawyers can help you move forward.”

All of the videos above were produced in partnership with Bakersfield-based Scope Studios.

In addition, last year Chain | Cohn | Stiles partnered on a video with Inclusion Films, a practical film workshop for adults with developmental disabilities. The vocational program produced a powerful dramatized 30-second video featuring attorneys at the law firm, and the work they do to help people who have been involved in life-changing accidents with the message of, “We are more than a law firm. We are family.”

Chain | Cohn | Stiles takes pride in presenting honest video commercials to the public that highlight the hard work we do, and care we take in each client’s case.
