Los Angeles Magazine Names John Bisnar a 2010 Top Southern California Attorney

Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) March 11, 2010

John Bisnar, founding partner of the California personal injury law firm of BISNAR CHASE (www.BestAttorney.com) and a 32-year law veteran, has been named a 2010 Top Southern California Attorney by Los Angeles Magazine. The Los Angeles Magazine accolade, revealed in its February issue, follows John's recent appointment by Orange Coast Magazine as a 2010 Southern California Super Lawyer three years running.

John was also recently featured in Newsweek's "The Best of Los Angeles Law," as part of a larger Newsweek interview issue dedicated to "people who matter most," according to the magazine, with in-depth Q&A from movers and shakers such as Hillary Clinton, Henry Kissinger, Bill Clinton, Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com, movie directors James Cameron and Peter Jackson and popular talk show hosts Bill Maher and Joe Scarborough.

Bisnar is a native of Southern California and a U.S. Army veteran. In 1974, he graduated cum laude from California State University, Long Beach with a B.S. Degree in Finance/Investments. In 1978, Bisnar received his JD degree from Pepperdine University School of Law. He was admitted to the California State Bar in July 1978 and shortly after, he graduated from Pepperdine University College of Trial Advocacy. In 1996, he was named a "Community Hero" by The United Way, Orange County, California and in that same year, was an Olympic torch carrier transporting the Olympic flame through Orange County on foot.

Today, John is a top Orange County attorney handling the business affairs, marketing, and client care programs for BISNAR CHASE. He acts as the firm's chief negotiator, manages the day-to-day client contact and is responsible for the running of the business of the law firm. He also leads client care and negotiation training programs for his staff while sharing his skills with other attorneys as a frequent industry lecturer and guest speaker.

John has a long-standing reputation for providing compassionate, clear advice and getting outstanding results for victims of car accidents, defective products and general negligence. To date, he has represented 6,124 clients with a 97.8% success record. Having recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for injured accident victims and the families of deceased accident victims, John is a passionate advocate of consumer rights and has been praised for his tenacity in standing up to large corporations, auto makers and governmental entities on behalf of his clients.

In 2009, Avvo.com, an online attorney rating service, gave John a "perfect 10" score and "superb" rating based on his background, years of experience as a personal injury lawyer, successful track record, impeccable reputation with clients and peers, and professional accomplishments.

John's book, "The Seven Fatal Mistakes That Can Wreck Your California Personal Injury Claim," is an authoritative guide for anyone who has suffered a personal injury in California. It is a comprehensive handbook that spells out the important steps one needs to take immediately after suffering a personal injury, the pitfalls to avoid and the best way to get fair compensation.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“John Bisnar was so professional and caring. When I found myself in this situation and never having a car accident before I didn't know what steps to take. Mr. Bisnar explained every single detail to me and what to expect. His staff was amazing, friendly and seemed to really care about me as a person. I lost all doubt I may have had about dealing with personal injury lawyers and couldn't be happier with the level of service I received. I was constantly updated on my case status and received far more from my settlement than I expected.”

“We received an email from A.G. Edwards stating they have received the settlement check from Nissan. Once again, I cannot begin to articulate our gratitude to the Bisnar Chase staff - we are so very thankful for all you have done for Josh. As parents, Charlotte and I can rest in peace, when that day comes, knowing that Josh's needs have been taken care of, and his financial future is in good hands with sound financial planners at A.G. Edwards. On December 17, 2003 we received a call from the paramedics stating that Josh and Lisa had been in a severe accident, and we needed to meet them at the emergency room. I remember telling God that I can deal with missing limbs because they can be replaced, but please do not take him from us. A month later we met with members of your staff for the first time, Josh had a traumatic brain injury and his future was looking pretty bleak; we had no idea where he would be eighteen months later. All we could think of at the time was that our son's future, his goals, and dreams had been taken from him so abruptly. As time passed, Josh continued to improve and he began his journey of recovery. Many have been involved in this process, and you and your staff have been an integral part of Josh's recovery, and we will be forever grateful. God has brought so many people into our lives, and we are so very blessed. Numerous emails were sent to Personal Injury Attorney's. John...you were on a ski trip at Big Bear with your family, and you were the only Personal Injury Attorney to respond - I believe this was divine intervention. Josh has a professor from Mt. San Jacinto College who has taken him "under his wing," and is showing him other career possibilities. John, the future looks good for Josh - thank you!”

“Happy the way my case went. The only thing that got the other insurance company to hear me was "here is the number to my attorney", I shouldn't have waited so long to call an attorney. Thank you isn't enough.”
