  • Family lawyer

    We used Laura Cowan (, who was very thorough and easy to work with, for our trusts, estate planning, wills, power of attorney, etc. We didn't do much price shopping so I can't speak to pricing but I can only recommend her. We met her through a free estate planning workshop she conducted, so if you get in touch with her I'm sure she can run you through that presentation before you make any decisions or commitments.
  • Attorney for Trust/Will?

    We just did this with the attorney Laura Cowan and had a great experience. We found Laura through a webinar she did for Park Slope Parents. She was fantastic: knowledgeable, responsive, and professional, and her fees are very reasonable. She talked us through the whole process and empowered us to make informed decisions. I was also happy to support a solo female practicioner. As Laura said to us, people often think of making a will at the end of their years, when actually it's even more important to have these things in place when you have young children. I highly recommend her!

    We just used Laura Cowan's services and are really pleased. She made it really easy and non-intimidating and we think offered a really good rate.
