We had an excellent experience working with Laura on our estate planning! She was so thorough and provided in-depth education on every aspect of the process. She answered all of our MANY questions without judgement and helped us learn a lot along the way, too! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a professional, knowledgeable and welcoming lawyer to help them with this process.

I recently used Laura to put together my first estate plan. I had no idea what I was doing since I had never done it before, but she made the whole process easy from the start. She helped me figure out what the best options were for me based on my assets, and I had plenty of opportunities to ask as many questions as I wanted to make sure I understood everything. And I know if I ever need to make any changes, she’ll make that process easy, too. Highly recommended!

Laura is a true professional. She is pleasant to work with and ensured that I understood everything throughout the whole process. She is quick to respond to emails and calls. Her rates are very reasonable. I highly recommend her, not only for her work ethics, but because she is genuine and very knowledgeable.

I met Laura through a colleague exactly at a time when I was in need of redoing my trust and estate documents. I’d been through the process before, but Laura made it SO much better and easier! She takes the time to thoroughly explain exactly what you are doing, why and how it works. You aren’t signing anything without full understanding of what is in front of you. She is also extremely responsive, which is always important. I have already recommended Laura to my brother, and will continue to recommend to her to anyone I know that needs any type of the services she provides. She is terrific!

My wife and I used Laura to design and execute our estate plan. She is incredibly organized and efficient with her time. As parents of two young children we valued the time she spent explaining our options and the care she took in preparing our documents.

Laura. goes above and beyond for her clients. I would certainly recommend her to individuals or families looking to set up a trust or will. If estate planning is something you’ve procrastinated on, Laura can help you get a great plan in place!

Laura just helped me get my will and power of attorney drawn up and I couldn’t be more happy with her work. She explained everything and answered my questions patiently and clearly and helped me figure out the best plan to fit my needs and income. She’s communicative, empathetic, efficient, and awfully nice to work with. Laura made a task I’ve been postponing and dreading forever quick and easy. I highly recommend her!

We worked with Laura to set up our estate plan documents. She was very knowledgable and helped us to make the best decisions for our family. I particularly appreciated her background in both law and accounting, and learned a lot from working with her. She was also very accommodating and efficient, helping us to complete the process quickly as we were expecting a baby within a few weeks of starting to work with her. I would definitely recommend working with her.

Our relationship with Laura started with a very informative estate planning information session which clarified many open questions that we had about wills and trusts in an relaxed but very professional and not high-pressure sales pitchy way. When we decided to proceed with our estate plan Laura was very organized, thorough and accommodating in meeting with us, explaining our options and rolling with all of our changes and complexities. Definitely recommend.

I reached out to Laura as I had some questions relating to estate planning. Although Laura was ultimately unable to help me, as I needed a lawyer based in a different state and she is a New York estate lawyer, she still took the time to answer all of my questions. I really appreciated her going above and beyond to help me find a good lawyer, even if it was someone other than herself! Very professional and I would recommend her to anyone.

Laura’s presentation was fabulous: she is clear and direct, very knowledgeable but doesn’t try to make things complicated to impress clients like a lot of clients. She has packages that are very reasonable. We were so disappointed not to be able to use her because we live out of state.

We worked with Laura for the creation of my parents’ trust. From the very first meeting which takes place at her free orientation seminar she is wonderful. Laura does such an amazing job of explaining your options and answering every single question that they (and my sister and I) had, we all felt 100% comfortable working with her. Before meeting her I was intimidated by the process, but after the orientation knew she was the best person for us to work with. And we all highly recommend her.

Laura presented to us at NAPO and her seminar got rave reviews. I was always a bit daunted by the whole estate planning process, but Laura explained it in a way that made it understandable and relatable. She was patient and thorough in answering our questions, and I was relieved to learn her fees are reasonable, especially considering all the accolades she’s received! I give her my highest recommendation.

So happy with Laura and our experience making our estate plans! We had dawdled for years and she made what could have been a daunting process truly painless. She guided us to the best option for our family and was absolutely transparent as to pricing and services included. We would recommend her without reservation to anyone.

Laura was wonderful! My husband and I went to her to do our wills for the first time, knowing very little about estate planning or what the process entailed. Laura walked us through all of our options and explained everything clearly every step of the way. Also, her fees are very straightforward so we knew exactly what it would cost us to do this, which was refreshing. We’ve already sent some friends her way and could not recommend her more highly!

My husband and I recently worked with Laura to create a revocable living trust and an estate plan. She walked us through everything from beginning to end and made the entire process very easy to understand. We are also in the process of buying a house, and she went above and beyond to create additional documents that we need to put the house in our trust from day one. Great work and a joy to work with – thanks Laura!

We loved working with the office of Laura E.Cowan. She was a breeze to work with, diliently explained all pertinent information to us and did so in record breaking time per our request (so we could get things done prior to a new baby being born). I’d highly recommend her services to anyone looking for Estate Planning or similar help.

After hearing Laura Cowan speak about wills and trusts, I made an appointment with her to revise the outdated estate plan for my husband and me. She explained all the options, answered all our questions (some of them multiple times!), and followed up with us as needed. We are thrilled with the end result. We felt like we were in very good hands. She is a delight to work with.

Laura was extremely helpful she spends time explaining and answering any questions you may have. She also followed up with me several times to make sure that I had handled my responsibilities.

As someone who likes to plan ahead, having an estate plan was very important. After quite a bit of research, I had decided that creating a living revocable trust was the best decision for me. It would be less expensive in the long run and should be easier to manage for those I leave behind. I spoke with a number of estate lawyers about creating these documents and each one of them only spoke about creating a will. When I specifically asked about including a living revocable trust, they all tried to talk me out of it.

Then I attended a presentation by Laura Cowan. She clearly explained the importance of having your estate in order regardless of age, the differences between the estate documents, including a will and a living revocable trust and clearly answered everyone’s individual questions. I knew that day that she was the estate attorney I had been looking for.

I greatly appreciate Laura’s intelligence, work ethic, and positivity. However, what I value the most is her method of sharing her knowledge and then letting her clients make the decision regarding what is best for them.

Working as a Professional Organizer, I have the privilege of supporting families through the difficult time following the loss of a loved one. I have learned that this process is never easy, but can be so much more challenging if the estate was not in order. I also know that while we all plan to live long healthy lives, tragedy happens; my mother died when I was four, which was completely unexpected. Thanks to Laura, I am confident that I have a plan that will both protect and support my family. Having an estate plan is the best present you can give those you love and Laura Cowan is by far the best estate lawyer I have met!
