Family Law at its Best
We were referred to him for family law matters from a friend of mine. He was great needless to say and I have worked in law for 12 years. We got a meeting, set up a plan and got it done. Him and his assistant always got with me somehow someway and he was very helpful in explaining what was what and cost, etc. I could have not been more pleased with the outcome of our court orders and the service his office provided. I would recommend him to anyone, especially for family law. Please if you need help or somewhere to start, guidance wise, please call his office in Rockwall.

He ignores you. Does not do what you ask him to do by looking out for your best interest, or answering questions. I went 4 months without any communication from him after calling and emailing about an urgent matter. He'll take your money and do Nothing.

Don't believe the positives reviews - they probably are from his cousins
The absolute worst lawyer. He does not operate with integrity. He doesn't represent the client's best interests. He is a liar and a cheat. Linda and Rachel are full of sh!t also. Do not hire this a$$hole unless you want to pay for two lawyers. One lawyer (Cameron) to sit on his fat a$$ and collect money, the other lawyer to actually represent you. I highly recommend that you hire a competent attorney that has a real set of skills.

In my recent experience, and opinion based upon that experience, unless there is a chance Mr Cowan is going to make a copious amount of money off of your divorce, he just doesn't care about you. In my initial "free" consultation, he spent a substantial amount of time interrupting the consult so he could deal with issues regarding his upcoming family cruise, yet he charged me for going over the 30 minute "free" consult. He showed up late to court, each time we had a hearing, unprepared, apparently ready to "wing it". After the last temporary order hearing, I inquired as to what documentation, etc... that I needed to provide him for the final trial / disposition and was completely ignored for nearly 2 months, right up until a day before the final trial, yet was charged for his eventually answering at the last minute... only because he had gotten a call from my wife's attorney. Had my wife and I not reconciled, we would have gone into the final trial with NOTHING prepared. I highly discourage anyone using Mr Cowan's services.
