"Our associates are on the front line, going head-to-head in battle to win for people who have suffered catastrophic injuries or lost a family member." - John Bisnar
Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) May 27, 2011
John Bisnar, founder of BISNAR | CHASE, said his firm created Associates Day to honor what he calls our “special forces leaders" in the fight for personal injury victims' rights.
"Going up against corporate giants and insurance companies is like going to war," said Bisnar. "Our associates are on the front line, going head-to-head in battle, representing people who have suffered catastrophic injuries or lost a family member. Our associates are the leaders of our “special forces units” of this firm – highly skilled, heavily armed and ready to fight – and as such, we felt it was important to honor them for their hard work and commitment to our clients’ causes."
