WeTip Names John Bisnar Outstanding Achievement Award Recipient

Newport Beach, CA (Vocus) April 14, 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 an Outstanding Achievement Award recipient by WeTip, a leading anonymous crime reporting service and law enforcement advocacy non-profit organization. WeTip named Bisnar a recipient of this prestigious award based on his crime prevention efforts and commitment to WeTip's non-profit initiatives. Bisnar will be presented with the award at the 37th Annual WeTip National Crime-fighting Conference on Friday, April 23, 2010, at the Holiday Inn Ontario Airport in Ontario, California.

Bisnar, a long-standing victims' rights advocate, began working closely with WeTip after his firm, BISNAR CHASE, witnessed an increase in the number of hit-and-run driving cases it represents, in addition to a dramatic overall increase of hit-and-run driving offenses in the state of California in recent years. In March 2010, BISNAR CHASE, in conjunction with WeTip, launched the Hit-and-Run Reward® Program designed to wipe out California hit-and-run offenses by offering an anonymous reporting system and cash reward program to people who care enough to report hit-and-run crimes.

"It's our privilege to honor John Bisnar with the Outstanding Achievement Award based on his extraordinary efforts and exemplary service in the field of crime prevention and WeTip support," said Susan Aguilar, CEO of WeTip. "John epitomizes what it means to have a giving spirit, to put ideas into action to help victims of violent crimes, and to make a difference in the community. It's support like this that enables organizations like WeTip to prevent crimes and save lives."

Bisnar is a native of Southern California and a U.S. Army veteran. He attended college on the G.I. Bill, graduated cum laude from California State University, Long Beach with a B.S. Degree in Finance/Investments in 1974 and received his JD degree from Pepperdine University School of Law in 1978. He was admitted to the California State Bar in July 1978 and shortly after, graduated from Pepperdine University College of Trial Advocacy. To date, he has represented 6,124 personal injury clients with a 97.8% success record, having recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for catastrophically injured accident victims and the families of deceased accident victims.

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. Earlier this year, he was named a 2010 Top Southern California Attorney by Los Angeles Magazine and a 2010 Southern California Super Lawyer by Orange Coast Magazine, three years running. Bisnar is also the author of "The Seven Fatal Mistakes That Can Wreck Your California Accident Case."

The Hit-and-Run Reward Program launched by BISNAR CHASE in conjunction with WeTip last month, is a program that funds hit-and-run rewards of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and felony conviction of hit-and-run drivers who have caused serious personal injury by way of anonymous tips provided through the Hit-and-Run Reward website, HitandRunReward.com, or through the Hit-and-Run Reward hotline at 800-6-Hit-N-Run (800-644-8678).

"I'm extremely honored to receive this award and extremely proud to be aligned with an organization such as WeTip," said Bisnar. "Like BISNAR CHASE, WeTip shares our commitment to stopping hit-and-run offenders and to seeking justice for the victims of violent crimes. In order to do this, we need the help of people who care enough to report violent crimes while protecting their anonymity in the process. WeTip is a crucial part of this process."

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“Great people in this office, everyone was really helpful explaining everything. I was referred by my aunt for my car accident in October and the case went pretty fast. No problems and very professional. I was kept in the loop thru [sic] the whole process and was able to get a better settlement than my insurance company said I would. I cant really compare them to other law firms because it was the first time I had to use an attorney, but my bad experience with the car accident was handled as good as I could have hoped.”

“I went to them from a recommendation from my tax attorney. They have a good rap, and they talk the talk, so far they have walked the walk. I will update after the court case happens. The communication is fantastic, my case isn't worth a lot, but it would appear like they enjoy their work, rather than trying to leech out my money. They don't bill me for every phone call, which is nice!! I would recommend them as well, very professional and efficient.”

“I just wanted everyone to know how grateful Miguel and Luga were to your office and everyone that participated in their case. I met with them this morning to give them their settlement checks - Miguel stated from the first time he walked into our office and from walking out the door today was one of the most heartwarming experiences he has ever had. They both felt cared for and taken care of every step of the way! I just wanted to pass that on to each of you and to applaud you for such a fine job!”
