The Bisnar Chase Story

Where does our "passion" come from? John Bisnar started this law firm right out of law school in 1978. John went to law school believing a legal education would serve him better in a business career than earning another business degree. In his first month of law school he was seriously injured in a traffic collision by a negligent driver. The attorney who represented Mr. Bisnar, one of his law school professors, did a poor job representing him. From that experience John learned what it was like to need and depend upon an attorney for quality professional assistance and not get it. The professor was a famous personal injury attorney, yet John knew he could do a better job for clients.

Due to that experience, Mr. Bisnar vowed that his clients would get the quality of professional service that he wished he had received. With that vow Mr. Bisnar started Bisnar & Associates, a firm that he successfully operated for twenty years. In 1998, that firm evolved into Bisnar Chase with Brian Chase leading the litigation team and Mr. Bisnar focusing on our clients' needs, ensuring we live up to the vow. Today we serve a couple hundred clients at a time. And we work to live up to the vow each and every day.
