A Wonderful Lawyer
He is a person you can trust to take on your case with zeal and help solve the issues at hand. I will work with him again.
Response from John Bisnar August 12, 2014
Tim, Thank you for the kind words.
Posted by kirsti | August 13, 2011
fantastic
I live the UK. I recently had fertlity treatment in California and encountered some problems with the clinic. I contacted Mr Bisnar and although my case was too small to take on he talked me through negotiations with the clinic at no charge. I finally managed to get all my fees back from the clinic and would have not been able to do it without Mr Bisnar as I knew nothing about California law. He is a genuine, helpful and kind man who I can promise has your best interests at heart.
