Attorney Laura Cowan is the founder and owner of the Law Office of Laura E. Cowan in New York, New York. Serving individuals and families throughout the greater New York City metro area, Ms. Cowan focuses her practice exclusively on estate planning and elder law. She finds great reward in being able to help her clients establish their final needs for the future while assisting them with securing a lasting legacy for their heirs and loved ones.

Over the course of her more than six years in practice, Ms. Cowan has earned a reputation as a compassionate and caring legal professional who treats everyone she serves with the respect and dignity they deserve. Personable and responsive, she returns her clients phone calls and emails promptly in order to address their questions and concerns, and she takes the time to fully explain their options with regards to estate planning, elder law, future medical and health care needs, and more.

A graduate of Iowa State University, Ms. Cowan worked as a Certified Public Accountant with both Goldman Sachs and Ernst & Young, giving her invaluable insight and experience in financial advisement, taxes, and management. This allows her to better guide her clients with the confusing and sometimes convoluted estate planning process while helping them to protect their assets and preserve the bulk of their wealth for future generations.

She then attended the University of Minnesota Law School, where she served as an associate editor of the Journal of Law & Inequality. A Dean's List scholar, she received the L. Charles and Lillian Gay Endowment Fund Scholarship, and won the best oralist award in her first year. She was also the president and founding member of the Business Law Association and she served as treasurer of the Women's Law Student Association.

Ms. Cowan is currently an active member of the New York City and New York State Bar Associations, and she routinely conducts lectures and seminars on a variety of legal topics. In 2019, she presented at UN Headquarters in New York City on estate planning for non-citizens. She has been published in Forbes and was ranked the "2nd Best Estate Planning Attorney in New York" by Yelp!
