I can offer my help by reaching out to my peers and getting them involved as well. I'm very excited about the opportunity to be more involved in important legislative matters that face California.
Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
H.Gavin Long, a personal injury attorney with the law firm of Bisnar | Chase, has been appointed to the Consumer Attorneys of California's (CAOC) Board of Governors. CAOC is a professional organization with a membership of nearly 3,000 plaintiffs' attorneys who fight for the rights of consumers who have suffered injuries and losses as a result of someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.
Long said he is honored to receive this prestigious appointment. "As far as personal injury lawyers are concerned, we are on the right side of issues," he said. "We're like civil cops, helping enforce the rules and protecting our injured clients. Instead of putting people in jail, we're hitting their wallets and upholding the law."
CAOC has taken a leadership role when it comes to holding wrongdoers accountable, Long said. "They have particularly been very instrumental in the fight to get the medical malpractice cap increased in California. They are working hard trying to ensure that people have access to lawyers by keeping the contingency fee system in place. I'm privileged to be a part of these efforts that aim to make the civil justice system more equitable and accessible to Californians."
Long says he plans to hit the ground running by helping the organization in its educational and promotional efforts. "I can offer my help by reaching out to my peers and getting them involved as well. I'm very excited about the opportunity to be more involved in important legislative matters that face California."
An Orange County native, Long graduated from the University of Southern California in 1996 and from Whittier Law School in 1999. He was a recipient of the American Jurisprudence Award for securing the highest grades in his study of Torts and Evidence. Long worked with nationally renowned trial attorney Herbert Hafif on trial preparation for catastrophic injury, business litigation and insurance bad faith cases. Long has a wide range of jury trial experience in cases from murder and fraud to medical malpractice in state and federal courts. He has been with Bisnar | Chase since April 3, 2012. Long has tried three personal injury cases so far this year and won them all.
