Bisnar Chase's Tom Antunovich to Be Sworn in to the Board of the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association
Tom Antunovich, a trial lawyer with the Newport Beach personal injury law firm of Bisnar Chase has been named member of the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association's Board of Directors. He will be sworn in during the organization's 58th annual Installation Gala.
Antunovich said he is grateful and thrilled to be chosen for this position.
"OCTLA is an exceptional organization, he said. "I'm honored that my peers have chosen me to serve on the Board of Directors, and I look forward to getting to work immediately. In the year ahead, we will have many opportunities to further OCTLA's mission of protecting the rights of people who have been harmed by the wrongful acts of others. It is a very exciting time."
Antunovich started out as a law clerk at Bisnar Chase and became part of the trial team in January 2016, impressing his senior colleagues with his can-do mentality and drive to help others. In mid-2016, barely a few months after he joined the firm's trial team, Antunovich was assigned as lead associate attorney for the firm's Johnson & Johnson Baby powder ovarian cancer cases.
In June 2019, he secured an $11 million judgment for a car accident victim who had suffered injuries serious enough to require rehabilitation. Most recently, he obtained a $250,000 verdict for a client in Orange County who suffered a soft-tissue neck injury in a rear-end car accident. The insurance company's top offer before the trial was $45,000.
Antunovich's abilities and success have been growing exponentially over the last few years, which has been amazing to watch, said Brian Chase, managing partner and senior trial attorney at Bisnar Chase.
"I've just been so impressed over the years with Tom's drive to succeed and help others," said Chase, who is also OCTLA's past president. "All of us at Bisnar Chase are extremely proud of Tom's accomplishments and know that this is only the beginning. I know he'll be a tremendous asset to OCTLA."
Antunovich is an Orange County native. He graduated from Troy High School, a prestigious magnate school in Fullerton, and got his bachelor's degree in kinesiology from Cal Poly Pomona in 2010. He attended Western State College of Law and graduated with honors in May 2015. In July 2015, he passed the California Bar examination.
As a student at Western State College of Law, Antunovich participated in the mock trial team. He also worked at the school's immigration clinic where he helped a woman from El Salvador apply for asylum in the United States.
OCTLA serves as a premier advocate for the protection of individuals' right to access the civil justice system. The organization states its mission as protecting the rights of people who have been harmed by the negligent and wrongful acts of others by educating and training attorneys; providing access to the collective resources, knowledge and experience of its members; and by promoting and supporting legislation, which helps correct injustice and protects the people's access to the civil justice system.
