We had the good fortune of connecting with Omid Rejali and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Omid, every day, we hear about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
I was frustrated with personal injury lawyers taking advantage of people who were injured. As a personal injury lawyer, I would hear the stories repeatedly of how personal injury lawyers were taking too much money out of the injured persons recovery and leaving them with little to nothing of the total recovery.
So, I set out to change that. I created LawPer so the injured person would have a better online experience in being able to find high quality personal injury lawyers who will put more money in the injured persons pocket.
LawPer does exactly that, it allows injured people to communicate with personal injury lawyers online, choose the one they like and save money. It saves the injured person money by a reduced attorneys fees. Many injured people don’t pay attention to personal injury attorneys attorneys fees because they do not charge a fee upfront. Just because they are not paying a fee upfront does not mean they are not paying it at the end. Attorneys on LawPer charge a lower fee than the industry average and thereby put more money in the injured person’s pocket.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
LawPer has been a creation for my love and passion for justice and fairness. I believe that without a just and fair world, our universe would be in chaos. Fundamental fairness is the cornerstone of our society and without it we would not be able to function.
I wanted to be able to bring that same fairness to people who are injured. In my own practice, I always recognized that without the opportunity to be able to represent people who are injured I would have no business. Plus, people who are injured not only deserve to be treated fairly, but also should be able to keep more of their settlement dollars because they need it for their future treatment and care.
I want the world to know that LawPer, Inc. was created out of love of fairness, and justice. It was created out of my many frustrations with personal injury lawyers who do not appreciate the power that they have been given. It is my dream that LawPer, Inc. helps as many injured people have a better experience finding their lawyer, communicating with their lawyer via video and chat, and ultimately save more money.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Hmmm…San Diego has so many great places to offer. 1) Downtown San Diego, particularly little Italy would be on the list. 2) The many San Diego breweries would also be a place that we would definitely go to. 3) San Diego also has many hiking trails that are extremely fun to go to. 4) Finally would probably go to Balboa park.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My wife is my number one supporter in everything I do. She always supports my wild ideas and helps me in achieving my dreams. I also would like to thank the entire San Diego personal injury community for believing in my idea, and supporting me to bring LawPer, Inc. to market, without them I would not have been able to do it.
