Firm Profile


Firm Details

Founded in 1977, CowanGates uniquely combines friendly, personal service with the expertise of a large, full-service law firm. Our clients are diverse, from individuals, neighbors, families and friends, to major corporations, mid-size and small businesses. For each client, our goal is the same: prompt, personal and professional service.  

CowanGates is small enough to provide the individual attention every client wants and needs, yet large enough to handle the most complex legal issues. We understand business and bottom lines, and always deliver value and quality.   

Whether representing an individual or a business, we give each client the same dedication to excellence. Your legal concern may be relatively simple or very complex. In either instance, our dedicated and experienced attorneys will work for you toward a favorable resolution.
