Recently, the diehard Newport Beach Personal Injury attorneys of BISNAR | CHASE hosted their first ever BISNAR | CHASE “Jack-O-Lakers” contest. Many wistful Laker fans put their heart and souls into some seriously impressive pumpkins, but as every Lakers fan knows, when you are competing at the highest level, only one can come out on top. Kimberly Iniba of West Covina, California happened to be that one, and I’m sure she is basking in the glory of free Lakers tickets at this very moment. After hearing about this, I felt obligated to see why these catastrophic injury attorneys felt the need to hold this contest. What I found was a love for the game, and the team that made the league great.
John Bisnar, head partner of BISNAR | CHASE, has been a Laker fan for over 30 years. Bisnar’s Newport Beach conference room is irrefutable proof that this guy is all about the purple and gold, literally. Immediately visible as you enter the room you notice the signed memorabilia, Laker’s legendary buzzer shots, and of course the purple and gold conference room table. Not to mention a plasma television continuously showing Lakers game highlights right below a regulation-sized basket.
Bisnar, a long-time sports fan, began his fascination with the Lakers after learning about Jerry Buss’ commitment to winning. He realized they had something in common.
“As a personal injury lawyer, I only get paid if I win the case, which is why winning is a big deal to me.” Bisnar said. “And Dr. Buss is all about winning, which is why I appreciate that. He believes that basketball should be about winning and not how much money you make and you can see that in the Lakers. “The Lakers own one of the highest winning percentages of any sports franchises and I’m attracted to that.”
“We thought this contest would be a great way to get the public involved in supporting the team this season while celebrating Halloween in the process. We’re looking forward to seeing just how creative Los Angeles Lakers fans can be”
John Bisnar is an interesting guy, sponsoring this Lakers contest is clear support. There are so many Lakers fans right here in L.A. that will never see a game and I think it is awesome that those who have been able to prosper during these hard times are giving back. The only real question now is: what is he going to do with all of those pumpkins?
