Pej believes in his core that being a trial lawyer is a noble calling. He has dedicated his career to standing up to insurance
companies and large corporations on behalf of injured people.
Pej’s accomplishments – at the young age of 38 – are numerous. Pej has recovered tens of millions of dollars in jury trial wins and
settlements. He is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and was named a Super Lawyer in 2014 – 2016. He was named
a Top Attorney in California in 2010 and a Leader in Personal Injury Law in 2012 by Newsweek Magazine’s Showcase. The National
Attorney s Association named Pej as a “Top 100 Lawyer Nationwide” and placed him in the “Top 40 Under 40.” Pej was named to
the 2018 10 Best Personal Injury Attorney s by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorney s.
More than anything, Pej is a dyed-in-the-wool trial lawyer. Pej focuses on our community’s need for another trial lawyer who has the
freedom, skill, and passion to handle back-to-back jury trials. A graduate of Gerry Spence’s Attorney s College, Pej understands that
insurance companies and corporations are waging a quiet war on ordinary people who have been injured. Their well-orchestrated
public relations campaign demonizes victims who simply wish to be made whole.
Pej teaches young lawyers that our job is to push back against insurance companies and, through jury trials, hold them accountable
to the members of our community. Pej teaches young lawyers that only by going to trial and obtaining verdicts will corporations
begin to pay victims fair compensation.
More important, Pej practices law by getting to know his clients. To insurance companies, clients are merely a file or a collection of
medical records. To Pej, clients are people who have hopes, dreams, and families, all of which have been disrupted or even
destroyed by the misconduct of others. Pej teaches that it is only by spending time – a lot of time – with one’s clients can a trial
lawyer understand his or her client’s human losses. Pej goes to his clients’ homes, meets with their families and friends, and
ultimately tells the human story of what happened.
Finally, Pej embraces CZ&R’s deep commitment to community service. Pej was the second founding president of the Los Angeles
Attorney s Charities, a non-profit organization committed to improving the quality of life for people in need, with a focus on
education, children, and the homeless. Pej is similarly active in the Consumer Attorney s Association of Los Angeles (CAALA) and
Consumer Attorney s of California (CAOC). .
