Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) October 01, 2012
Bisnar Chase California Personal Injury Attorneys, LLP (http://www.BestAttorney.com) today announced partner Brian Chase, one of the nation’s leading personal injury attorneys and auto defects experts, has been nominated by the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA) for its prestigious “Trial Lawyer of the Year” award. The winner will be announced at CAALA’s Annual Installation and Awards Dinner this coming January.
With nearly 2,800 members, CAALA is the nation’s largest local association of plaintiffs' attorneys representing a powerful advocacy for victims’ rights and equal access to justice. Like Brian Chase, the association’s consumer attorneys protect people from unsafe products, unsafe medicine, unfair business practices and unscrupulous, negligent corporate conduct, subscribing to the highest standards of quality legal representation and ethical conduct.
Since 1972, CAALA has paid tribute to distinguished members of the trial bar, prominent jurists, and other individuals who have made significant contributions to protect the civil justice system.
Chase’s selection as a CAALA Trial Lawyer of the Year nominee is just one in a rapidly growing list of accolades he’s received so far this year, in addition to the numerous awards he’s earned throughout his 19-year career as a leading personal injury attorney.
“Brian’s newest Trial Lawyer of the Year nomination is a reflection of his passionate representation of our clients and the outstanding results he obtains for them,” said John Bisnar, founder of Bisnar Chase. “He’s a force to be reckoned in the courtroom and defense law firms know it. No one works harder or more enthusiastically to make things right for our clients and to hold wrongdoers accountable. He is very deserving of the awards he’s earned through the years.”
Chase is a native of Southern California and a graduate of Pepperdine’s law school. He’s litigated dozens of jury trials and has litigated both local and national auto product liability and catastrophic injury cases, obtaining judgments and settlements exceeding $100 million.
His expertise lies in making automakers accountable for defective vehicles that have caused fatal and catastrophic injuries.
Chase’s professional accolades are numerous. Last month, he was named a finalist for the Consumer Attorney of the Year Award by Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) and a 2012 Orange County Top Lawyer by Avvo for a third time.
Other professional honors include:
•Product Liability Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association in 2004
•A Southern California Super Lawyer by Law & Politics Magazine and Los Angeles Magazine every year since 2006
•One of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the American Trial Lawyers Association since 2007

•A Top 50 Orange County Super Lawyer by Super Lawyers Magazine in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012

Chase is Vice President of the Consumer Attorneys of California and serves on the Board of Governors for CAOC. He is a past President of the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association and is AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell® (their highest rating).
He has argued and won in the California Court of Appeals and in the California Supreme Court, changing state law to the benefit of injured plaintiffs.
Chase is the author of “Still Unsafe at Any Speed”, the most comprehensive literary work on auto defects since Ralph Nader’s 1965 book of the same subject, “Unsafe at Any Speed”, and is a frequent lecturer for various trade organizations where he teaches trial techniques and strategies to other attorneys.
