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

“After a bad accident, we were lost on how to handle the insurance agents, the paperwork involved and the claims representatives. We contacted Bisnar Chase and they took care of everything. It gave us the peace of mind we needed to heal. I am very impressed with their level of professionalism and their compassion. We definitely recommend Bisnar Chase.”

“I am very pleased with the results this law firm obtained for me. Their professionalism, attentiveness and friendliness was outstanding. They listened to me, answered my questions, advised me and kept me informed. A truck hit my car causing me serious injuries, medical bills, lost time from work and damaged to my car. They took care of everything wonderfully. They helped with getting my car repaired and a rental car. They helped me get medical help. They got my doctor bills paid, kept me from having to go to court and obtained a settlement for me beyond my expectations. Four of my family members have used these guys and had equally good experiences. One of my relatives consulted with them and got great advise about handling her matter. Mr. Bisnar told her she didn't need an attorney and told her how to handle it. She couldn't believe the compassion and great advise, especially without a fee. Mr. Bisnar helped my brother-in-law get a multiple six-figure recovery in an employment law dispute. Starting with the receptionist, my paralegal, the paralegal supervisor, Mrs. De La Torre, Mrs. Barker and Mr. Bisnar himself, everyone was helpful, friendly and professional. It was a refreshing experience after a bad accident. They send me a birthday card with a Baskin Robins gift certificate every year. In January they send me chocolate dipped fortune cookies. They have even offered me Lakers' tickets. They certainly didn't forget me after my case was done.”

“I could not recommend Bisnar & Chase highly enough! Now, I must be forthcoming and tell you that I am writing this review on behalf of my wonderful mother. You see, she's a mom, and therefor [sic] by nature is completely unable to do even the most simple of tasks on the internet. Like writing a a Yelp review. But we all love our moms don't we? Yes. We all love our moms (except Charles Manson), and would do anything to make sure they are protected and well taken care of. Upon referral from my mother's coworker, we contacted Bisnar & Chase. They had done a great job in this previous case and were located extremely close to both UCI and home, which made stopping by their office very convenient for my Mom. My Mom had been in an auto accident, nothing crazy but not a mere fender bender, and suffered what we thought to be some minor whiplash. Months later this was definitely not the case. Her client experience with the associates at Bisnar & Chase was so impressive that she raved to me about every time she heard anything from them. How thorough they were. How they listened better than I did (or something to that effect). How she liked Shannon and Mr. Bisnar and felt that they really had her best interests at heart. I honestly couldn't get her to shut up about them. But as a daughter that last part was all that I needed to hear to know that I we had found the right people and I could sleep easy at night knowing my Mom was in good hands. The Bisnar & Chase team really went above and beyond my family's expectations. And for that I am extremely grateful. If you live in the Newport Beach/Irvine/Costa Mesa/General Orange County area I would highly recommend Bisnar & Chase to both friends, and family.”
