The place where resolution begins is mediation.

Experienced, Ethical Legal Representation in Georgia

Mediation has become the focal point of all litigation. State and federal courts even require that the parties mediate their cases before heading to court. While choosing the right attorney is important, having a mediator who can help the parties negotiate the settlement waters is just as important.

Rob has been mediating cases since 1995. He was among the initial few attorneys to participate in the Conasauga Judicial Circuit Alternative Dispute Resolution Program. He now participates in the 7th Judicial Administrative District’s ADR Program as well as the 9th Judicial Administrative Districts Program. He is a member of the Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution section of the State Bar of Georgia as well as the ADR section of the American Bar Association. In 2014, Rob was honored by being recognized as a distinguished mediator by the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals. He is the only mediator in northwest Georgia to receive such a distinction.

Rob mediates cases involving personal injury, business disputes, family law, real estate litigation, and probate disputes, just to name a few areas. He is consistently in demand and mediates approximately 120 cases a year. Rob also mediates conflicts not in litigation, these include pre-suit divorce mediations as well as business conflicts. We have found that pre-suit mediation has the parties “cut to the chase” and avoid the expense of litigation. For further details, feel free to contact Rob directly.

Pre-Suit Mediation

This is considered the path of least resistance. Pre-suit mediation offers the defense the opportunity to make the situation whole, rather than requiring the need of both parties to prepare for a lengthy litigious process.

Scheduling A Mediation

While the path through mediation offers smooth resolution, the need to prepare is significant. When scheduling a mediation, remember this is your shot at justice…prepare accordingly.

Why Mediate With Rob

There are many mediators out there to hire, but there is only one Rob Cowan. Rob is aggressive in his approach towards resolution, while maintaining a fair and balanced approach to all matters. If your path is mediation, allow Rob to lead the way.

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.

Overall really nice and friendly professionals from all staff members. I would highly recommend The Cowan Law Firm. I was in a car accident and was able to obtain what I needed with the help of Scott DeLay. Thank you!
