5 Minutes of Chat With LawTally Founder Vikramsinh Parmar

Some say, “Everything is destiny.” Others believe, “hard work writes over one’s destiny.” Whether the former is true, or the latter or both hold their stands in some or the other proportion, let’s find out by analyzing Mr. Vikramsinh Parmar’s journey. 

Known for founding LawTally – a unique online lawyers’ directory, Mr. Parmar was born three years after the invention of the World Wide Web, in 1993. In his early days, he was as involved in sports, reading, and business as any average child born in the Bhavnagar district of Gujarat, India would be. 

Belonging to a middle-class family, the word “struggle” for Mr. Parmar, was a synonym for the word “growth.” Currently, he is a successful entrepreneur whose hands are in multiple businesses such as real estate, visa consultancy, bidding for government tenders related to western railway tracks. But the start of his journey was with a sacrifice. 

How that conditional sacrifice was understood as an amazing opportunity by Mr. Parmar? And, how his hard work wrote over his destiny? Read the interview to find out the answers for these questions.

Would you tell us a little bit about the inception of your professional journey?

I had to give up my studies because our family wasn’t capable enough financially to pay for my engineering college. And so, six months into engineering, I had to take a drop, at the same time, figure out an earning source that could feed “the naive me”.

The search for such an earning source brought me to the world of digital marketing and understanding how SEO works. It could have been mildly because I did not have any other earning source, that I developed a passion for SEO and related skills. 

But the major breakthrough did not come when I got my first major client who not only paid me well for a project but also worked with me for six months. By that time, I got myself enough knowledge about freelancer.com. 

The website taught me an important lesson that was going to change my thought process for my coming journey. I learned that there were enough opportunities that the Internet had for those who wished to showcase their skills. 

Expertise in my craft, made me head a team of 25 staff members and work even more successfully. But I was yet to make a breakthrough. In this digitized world, not having my own product, kind of haunted me. My urge to seek knowledge in each and every field helped me gain adequate knowledge in the field of real estate and meet Sandeep Lakhani. 

He had been in this field since 2002 and seemed to me as a perfect guide for someone like me, who wanted to experiment in the field of real estate. Our meeting resulted in working on a project that is already half through. Apart from our thoughts and ideologies in the real estate segment, we are bidding together for central government tenders related to the western railway system. 

Tell us a little bit about the startup you’ve found, LawTally

LawTally is sort of a virtual manifestation of my passion and belief in digitization. That passion and belief coordinated in a very effective manner, with the long-term wait for opening a website. 

I believe that IOT, online directories, and other automation brought in by the Internet and its iterations are meant to change the life of humans by helping them like never before. They are meant to serve as a source of free-information to many. And the same idea has been around in various industries for quite some time now. 

But in the field of law, which caters to every individual on the planet, it is still nuanced. LawTally aspires to digitize the way in which the law industry works. LawTally is a New York, USA-based startup and is reaching out to 1.33 million lawyers in the United State alone. Trying to make the interaction between:

  1. a) One lawyer and the peer lawyer, and
  2. b) A lawyer and his client, smoother than ever. 

We plan to expand this directory to Canada, United Kingdom, India and the Middle East in near future. And if we are efficient enough in doing so, we might even manage to cover the complete globe.

Would you care to share some messages for the young entrepreneurs like yourself, who have just started in the business or are thinking of doing so? 

One of the key learning’s I’d want them to try is to explore and question themselves about their achievements on a regular basis. And ask them, “What is next for me?”

This is something that I regularly practice since the time I worked as a freelancer myself. It made me sit tight while effortlessly experiencing the turns and speed breakers in my journey. 

Speaking about speed-breakers, COVID-19 has been the strongest one, I’d say. It made us go from office to online culture in 10 months, something that we wanted to do for quite some years. Although we were prepared, we were not prepared enough. We are recovering now. And the good news is that we are stronger than ever. The results of COVID outbreak came out to me as forming another company – Avik Overseas – that is helping Indian students study abroad. 

The other thing I’d like to share in particular with someone who is looking to start fresh in this industry is my experience of building a prototype before building the final product. Doing so, raised many eyebrows in the industry and cost me a decent amount. But, it gave me the confidence to scale up. It did tell me “you’re ready.” And that was a major reason; I started LawTally with confidence unmatched in the industry.

So the message is clear, until and unless, you do not hear,” you’re ready,” work for it. 

No knowledge is greater than the imagination that you carry in your head. So, never deter from trying what’s in your head. 

It does seem that you’d like to quote something?

If you are prepared for the uncertain journey, you’d travel more certainly than the one who is prepared for a certain journey. So, have a vision. And, make your every move count by ensuring that you have invested enough efforts to make things possible.
