About Us

Laura does things a little different from other New York attorneys.

We understand estate planning can seem intimidating and like it’s something only really wealthy people need. In reality, this could not be further from the truth!

At the Law Office of Laura Cowan, we believe estate planning is about making things as easy, inexpensive, and painless as possible for your loved ones when you are gone. And you care about that no matter how much (or little) you are leaving behind.

Whether you are single or married, with a traditional family or a blended one, just starting out or looking back on a life well-lived, Laura will help you craft a plan that will meet your goals today and for years to come.
