Cosmin spent his first 16 years in communist Romania before immigrating to California in the 90’s. He moved his growing family to Bellevue in 2005 and has been calling Washington home ever since.

For almost a decade prior to law school, Cosmin was a general contractor with a focus on custom residential construction and light commercial. He helped his wife manage a senior care facility where he observed firsthand the benefits of thoughtful estate planning as well as the challenges associated with lack thereof.

During law school, Cosmin worked with refugees at the United Nations’ Emergency Transit Center in Eastern Europe and Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission legal clinic. After returning from a trip to Restore International’s new school in Uganda, he translated and helped publish the book Love Does in Romanian.

Cosmin draws upon years of entrepreneurial experience and judgment to counsel and represent individuals, families, and businesses in the Pacific Northwest.
