It's hard to believe that it's almost 5 months since we started our journey at Simia. Since opening our doors, we've met incredible people who've inspired us to work harder, think smarter and fight longer to get them the justice that they deserve. We've shared some of their stories on our website, others across social media, and then there are the stories that are too personal and too tragic to even talk about publicly. Those are the ones that keep us up at night and keep us fighting throughout the day.
Right now is a huge moment for us, because we're starting to be recognized in the industry as a force for good. We want to make sure that we do right by everyone and that we continue to earn that reputation. With that in mind, we wanted to let you know a bit more about what's been going on at Simia since January.
While we can't tell you the specifics of any particular case, what we can say is that we've gotten in touch with a lot of people and become involved in a significant number of their cases. In fact, we've already given out millions of dollars worth of advances. In every instance, this money has gone directly to someone who was facing a long, drawn-out court battle and needed some financial aid to get them through it.
We've helped people turn the lights back on in their homes, pay for physical therapy so they could function again, and face the world with their heads held high. At every step of the way, we've been touched by their courage in the face of adversity and the strength of their resolve when things get tough.
We're also acting as a force for change in this industry. Our rates are staggeringly low, so much so that competitors have called into question our efficacy. Why are our rates so much lower than other businesses in this space? It's because we're genuinely not trying to take advantage of anyone. We've figured out a way that we can help other people while still being competitively viable in this space. It's making our competition sweat, but it's made the disenfranchised people we've gotten to work with very, very happy.
When we first got started, we had a good feeling about this business. After a few months, we've seen firsthand how essential our work is and we've never been more confident in our mission. We'll continue to keep fighting and keep delivering crucial financing at the lowest possible rates, for as long as there are people out there who need our help.
As always, if you or someone you care about is facing a lawsuit and needs financial aid, we're here for you. Give us a call at (866) 587-4320, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or submit a short application right here. Whenever you need us, we'll be ready.
