He has dedicated his career to standing up to insurance companies and large corporations on behalf of injured people. He is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and was named a Super Lawyer in 2014 – 2020. 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 Trial Lawyers 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 Attorneys by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys. In 2017, Pej was nominated for the Ventura County Trial Lawyers Association's "Trial Lawyer of the Year" award. In 2018, Pej was nominated for CAALA’s “Trial Lawyer of the Year” award. Since joining CZR, Pej has recovered tens of millions of dollars in jury trial wins and settlements.
He develops a unique and aggressive approach to every case, focusing on incorporating creativity and the latest technology. More importantly, Pej practices law by getting to know his clients in a way that few lawyers do. Pej goes to his clients’ homes, meets with their families and friends, and ultimately tells the human story of what happened. Pej is regularly asked to speak and teach young lawyers on his method which is based on what he learned at Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College - "You cannot get a jury to love your client if you do not love your client."
