George T. Cowan, Seattle corporate attorney, was raised and educated in the Pacific Northwest. He graduated from the University of Washington Business School, with a concentration in accounting. The following year while working on his MBA at Pacific Lutheran University, he received recognition for successfully completing the CPA examination in a single sitting, and he held a Washington CPA license for 20 years.
George finished law school at Seattle University early, and became the first student in the school’s history to receive an appointment to a federal appellate clerkship, serving Judge Eugene Wright on the Ninth Circuit in Seattle. Following his clerkship he accepted employment with Graham & Dunn in Seattle, where he practiced business, real estate, and commercial law for 15 years before leaving with two of his partners to form the Seattle office of Vandeberg Johnson & Gandara, where he practiced for 17 years.
While principally focused on Washington business issues, George sat for the California Bar Exam after being engaged as counsel by a hotel chain headquartered in southern California, and was admitted to practice in California in 1999.
As described in this website, George has a broad commercial law practice serving the needs of business in the northwest. When not practicing commercial law, he is busy raising a young family and working on a degree in electrical engineering from Seattle Pacific University.
