          About Gurjit Pandher

          Gurjit Pandher is a no-nonsense criminal defense attorney at The Nieves Law Firm with over 20 years of legal experience. With that type of experience, there isn’t much that surprises Gurjit in the courtroom when defending clients. Gurjit understands the criminal defense field and has served in multiple roles in the criminal justice system, including working as a prosecutor and serving as a Pro Tempore Judge after being hand-selected by four Presiding District Court Judges. His trial experience (Over 340 cases tried by jury) has been foundational in helping him hone his legal skills through pre-trial preparation, negotiations, legal writing, research, and oral advocacy. Gurjit’s experience in both the criminal and civil arenas have helped him cultivate the skills he uses daily to secure positive outcomes for clients.

          Born in London, England, Gurjit lived in India for a short time before moving to the United States. He graduated with a Bachelors in Political Science before attaining his law degree. His interest in the legal field expands beyond his work as an attorney – Gurjit has served as a mock trial judge for law school students and was a former Bar Association president. 

          Outside of work, Gurjit is an avid sports fan, history buff, podcast enthusiast, and world traveler. One of Gurjit’s most proud accomplishments is climbing Mount Rainier (14,411 feet elevation) as part of a breast cancer fundraising effort. If you’re in the office, don’t be surprised if you hear a Seinfeld quote from Gurjit as he’s our in-office Seinfeld expert.
