John Bisnar - Founding Partner (Retired)
John Bisnar is the founder of one of the top California personal injury law firms, Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys which was established in 1978.
Do Right by the Clients
Mr. Bisnar founded his personal injury law firm on the premise that you, "Do right by the clients and the profits will follow," after having a horrible experience as a personal injury client following his own serious car accident while in law school.
The experience taught him how it felt to be in need of compassionate guidance and spirited representation and getting neither from his own personal injury lawyer.
Superior Client Representation
Due to his horrible client experience Mr. Bisnar vowed that his clients would have the experience he wished he had when he was a client. This vow resulted in the first phrase of the Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys mission statement, "To provide superior client representation in a compassionate and professional manner, while experiencing high job satisfaction and making our world a safer place."
Following the Bisnar Premise and the Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys mission statement, in his career he had recovered for more than ten thousand personal injury clients and had won millions in compensation for his clients as well. John Bisnar treated every client with respect and compassion throughout his time at Bisnar Chase. Since retiring, the firm has continued to see major success with over $650M recovered for over 13,000 clients and named Best Places to Work every year since 2012.
