"I specifically went to law school to become a personal injury trial attorney. It is what I love, what I do, and what I am. If you hire Bisnar | Chase you get my personal attention, desire, drive and enthusiasm to obtain the best outcome that I can get for you.

What I love most about being a Personal Injury Attorney:

Helping injured people attain justice from big corporations when they manufacture dangerous products that cause injuries due to placing profit over safety;

Helping accident victims collect what they are due from insurance companies that believe they are solely in business to collect premiums, as opposed to the business of paying valid claims, as their contracts of insurance and the law require.

The intellectual challenge of litigation; and

Beating the other side at their own game. There is no professional thrill like it.

What I consider my most important accomplishment professionally was obtaining over a Million dollars for the most amazing 95 year old woman I have ever met, whose life was ruined due to the negligence of another, after the insurance company stated *in writing* that her claim was a "sham"."
