Professional Background

Prior to starting his own firm, Gurjit S.

He was hand selected by multiple presiding judges for the role of Judge Pro Tempore. As a Judge in the county district court, he was able to demonstrate a deep understanding of the law which was honed in his previous roles as Chief City Prosecutor and as a defense attorney. These real-world experiences are paramount to being an effective lawyer. His experience with the US court system makes him well versed on advising clients and avoiding difficult court procedures such as probate.

Education & Admissions

He earned his undergraduate degree in Political Science at the University of Washington and obtained his Juris Doctorate from Seattle University School of Law. During this time, he worked for State Senator Kathleen Drew at the Washington State Capitol and held many coveted positions, including being selected for the law school Moot Court Board. He is an active member of the Trusts & Estates Section of the California Lawyers Association and the Wealth Counsel. He has been admitted to the state bar in several states including the State Bar of California and the Washington State Bar Association.

Giving Back

He has served as President of Snohomish County Bar Association, Board of Trustees where he managed a non-profit organization with over 700 professional members to determine how to bring effective legal services to all.  He also loves to participate in fundraising events like Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center Climb for a Cure where he climbed Mount Rainer to help raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research.  He coaches his children’s sports team and is an active member of the community.

The best place to have your Trust, Will, and Estate Planning done!

I attended a Trust and Estates workshop put on by Mr. Pandher. It was virtual, given the COVID-19 environment, but I walked away with a great understanding of why everyone needs a trust and what I can do to protect my assets. He took the time out to answer all of my questions and explain the rationale behind his recommendations. I would definitely recommend Pandher Law Firm to anyone looking to make a will, healthcare directive, or trust.
