After fulfilling a lifelong dream of becoming a lawyer, Krist is focused on making a significant impact at Bisnar Chase. He is dedicated to helping those who have been injured, and ensuring that wrongdoers are held responsible.
Krist was born and raised in Orange County and graduated from Huntington Beach High School. A talented academic with an unparalleled desire to excel in the legal profession, he earned a BA in Political Science from California State University Long Beach in 2013.

The talented personal injury attorney takes his new role very seriously. He added: “I have wanted to become a lawyer since I was a kid, and it is a position and a responsibility that I take great pride in.
“I want to be able to help those people who have been hurt and need help, and ensure that those responsible are made accountable for their actions.”
