John Bisnar Named a 2010 Southern California Super Lawyer

Orange County, CA (Vocus) February 17, 2010

John Bisnar, a 32-year law veteran and founding partner of the California personal injury law firm of BISNAR CHASE (www.BestAttorney.com), has been named a 2010 Southern California Super Lawyer by Orange Coast magazine for the third consecutive time.

In compiling its prestigious list of Super Lawyers, the magazine evaluates candidates based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, including verdicts, settlements, transactions, representative clients, experience, honors and awards, special licenses and certifications, position within a law firm, professional activities, pro bono and community service, scholarly lectures and writings, education and employment background, and other outstanding achievements.

Once a candidate pool has been created, the magazine's research department closely evaluates each candidate based on the criteria listed above, and then a review of that candidate is performed by the lawyer's peers within their primary area of practice.

Bisnar is a native of Southern California and 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.

As featured in Newsweek's The Best of Los Angeles Law, John Bisnar 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. John has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for catastrophically injured accident victims and the families of deceased accident victims. He is a passionate advocate of consumer rights and has been praised for his tenacity in standing up to large corporations, auto makers and even governmental entities on behalf of his clients.

"Not only is John a bull-dog negotiator and 'tough-as-nails' consumer advocate, he's a close personal friend and mentor," said Brian Chase, a partner at BISNAR CHASE. "When our firm goes up against behemoth corporations and negligent wrong-doers to fight for the rights of people who have been seriously injured, John brings an unparalleled expertise at reaching settlements far and above expectations. In the courtroom, I'm glad he's my ally and not my adversary."

In 2009, Avvo.com, an online attorney rating service, gave Bisnar 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. In addition to being named a 2010 Super Lawyer, Bisnar was also named a Super Lawyer in 2008 and 2009.

Bisnar'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.

Today, Bisnar 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, managing day-to-day client contact and business decisions. He also leads client care and negotiation training programs for his staff while sharing his skills with other personal injury attorneys as a frequent industry lecturer and guest speaker.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“I don’t even know where to start, because I really wanted to write this recommendation even if there was no star or rating to be given! My daughter and I were in a bad car accident in 2011. She received a broke jaw, broken pelvic, broken arm, and a ruptured ear drum. I prayed to the lord while I was in ICU to guide me and send me to the right attorney that would help me and my daughter and not just look at us as a monetary opportunity. After much research I choose Bisnar Chase.
After spending 2 months in the ICU, we were in a long recovery process. Learning to walk, to eat due to wire shut for months! Back to the basic all over again… 4 years later it just came to an end! I tell you I have 2 different paralegals assisting me but Colleen Cadogan was the best I had this past year… This lady, emailed me, called me, send me words of encouragement almost every week! When I least expect it and I had a horrible day or had many questions and concerns she was there! As the paralegal doing her job, but also as a human being, a mother, a wife….just genuinely concern for my daughter and I. As the case came to a close….I will always remember the team of professionals and I would recommended Bisnar Chase to anyone….and be patient, patience”

“My grandson and I were involved in a roll-over accident in which he broke his ankle, and I broke my neck. Unfortunately it was caused by a hit and run driver who got away. One call to Bisnar/Chase and they came right away. Of course, my case took about 3 years to settle, but Bisnar/Chase was there to inform me every step of the way as to what was going on. They answer calls and emails right away, and I was never left wondering what was going on. The whole staff is caring and friendly and everyone there treated us like family. Not to mention the fact that they never seemed to forget you, by sending birthday cards with BaskinRobbin gift cards and on New Years they always sent the fancy fortune cookies! I always thought that was very thoughtful and caring of them. I had nothing but a positive experience with them and I would recommend Bisnar/Chase to all of my friends and family or to anyone who is in need of legal help.”
