It is often extremely helpful and necessary to allow a legal professional to assist you and/or your family with the adoption process, even after the child has already been placed in your home.


Divorce is unexpected, unnerving, and, at times, unbearable. It is a life experience that no one wishes upon themselves or their children, but when it becomes a reality, an experienced attorney is often the voice of reason that will help you through it.


Legitimation claims can lead to effective co-parenting, but sometimes they merely establish the identity of a child’s father and mandate specific amounts of child support.

Family Law

Legal situations that affect families are often the most difficult to settle. Couples experiencing the strains of a divorce and parents trying to obtain custody of their children aren’t just working out monetary issues; they’re fighting for their emotional rights. They want to retain a sense of normalcy in the midst of an overwhelming change and sometimes it can be hard for them to compromise and discuss their legal options rationally. The Cowan Law Firm is committed to helping families solve their legal battles as quickly and peacefully as possible.

Attorney Rob Cowan handles pre-suit mediation for divorcing couples, individuals with legitimation claims, parents with child custody disputes, and individuals/couples going through the adoption process. Over the last 15 years, he has been able to help hundreds of families settle their disputes amicably and keep important decisions concerning child custody out of a judge’s hands.

If a dispute or claim cannot be settled through mediation, however, we will represent couples and individuals in court. We have helped ensure that individuals filing for divorce maintain the properties and assets that are rightfully theirs. Whenever children are involved, he helps parents establish a parenting plan and determine child custody rights that make the most sense for the children.

We also provide legal representation for women involved in domestic disputes. We have advocated for victims of domestic violence and seek solutions that will provide a peaceful end to the unfair and damaging circumstances they face.

I strongly recommend and endorse the Cowan Law Firm. If you are a client of their firm you are more than just number on a file. They did excellent work in my case and should I need representation at any time in the future I would absolutely use them again. The attorneys and staff were very professional and are extremely skilled at what they do.
