Rajeev proudly served as the President of the 41,000 member Washington State Bar Association from 2019 to 2020.
Raised in rural Eastern Idaho, Rajeev (of Irish, Italian and Bengali descent… since we knew you would ask!) completed his undergraduate studies at Albertson College of Idaho in the sciences. He came to Washington in 1999 to do graduate work at the University of Washington, earning Masters in Public Administration and another in International Studies. While completing his graduate research, he traveled extensively in Burma and India, worked as a consultant in matters of international security and was recruited to work for the National Nuclear Security Administration in Washington D.C. While working for the Federal Government during the events of 9/11, he had a first-hand view of the Pentagon hours after it was hit and also visited the New York site several weeks later. He worked to establish protocols of cooperation between the United States and several other nations to ensure the containment of WMD technology, which inspired him to go to law school.
Rajeev attended law school at Seattle University, during which time he worked for the prestigious plaintiff’s litigation firm Carney Badley Spellman, and also, having passed the Tulalip Nation’s bar exam, as a prosecutor for the Tulalip Indian Nation. Having come from a rural setting, and having tasted the fruits of Seattle and Washington D.C., Rajeev had long set his sights on Whatcom County as the perfect setting for the best of both worlds. After working for the State’s Division of Child Support in Seattle, and taking the time to find the perfect fit, he accepted a position with the Whatcom Law Group in 2008, became a Partner in 2013, and Managing Partner in 2019. His practice focuses on business transactions and formations. He also serves as the City Prosecutor of Blaine. He served as a pro-tem Superior Court Commissioner for Whatcom County on an ongoing basis from 2013 until 2016, at which time he ran for and was elected to the Washington State Bar Association's Board of Governors to represent District #2. In 2018, he was elected to be President of the WSBA for the 2019-2020 term.
When not working, Rajeev spends time with his wife and daughter in the outdoors. He serves on the boards of a number of non-profits committed to serving the indigent in our community.
