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.

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.
