I won the judgement in an eviction case over 6 years ago in So. Cal. The tenant was long gone and I felt defeated and unable to collect on the judgement. After speaking to John regarding my case, he made the daunting task of finding my former tenant seem like a possibility. John took my case on a contingency, very generous of him, since he has worked on my case for over 6 months now and has not been paid. During this time he has kept me informed of the status on a regular basis, and has patiently explained the legal steps to me. I know he will be successful in helping me collect the monies I am lawfully owed by my former tenant. I am fortunate to have found John, a professional, effective attorney that is also a great listener, which makes me feel like I'm in good hands!

I have know John for over 10 years and he helped me with a divorce, a partnership agreement and dealing with a fellow contractor in a dispute with a client. John was professional, intuitive and very responsive.

Fancy That! An honest lawyer
Dealing with the legal system is exhausting both emotionally and financially, which is why I recommend John Cowan to help navigate the law. He has a heart of gold, so he doesn’t need to steal my gold. John has handled several issues for me over the past few years. He is different from other lawyers I worked with in that he only wants to solve my problems, efficiently and economically. Five stars!

Trustworthy Attorney in San Francisco
I highly recommend John Cowan if you are in need of a business attorney. I hired John as my attorney to handle some business legal matters. He had integrity, honesty, professionalism, punctuality and above all reasonable fees. He layed out advantage and disadvantage of my case, gave me options and guidelines and followed up very closely. I appreciated all the assistance and professional services he provided.

John E. Cowan: An Honest, Caring Attorney
John E. Cowan represented me as an attorney in a difficult divorce case. He was not just an attorney but a friend. He was fair, honest, caring, helpful, courteous and he got the job done with a minimum of pain. Most importantly, he really, truly cares. He's not just an attorney: he's a friend.

Honest and Reliable
I recently hired John to represent me in a nasty little traffic court situation. I was beyond impressed with John's commitment and dedication to helping me. While already extremely knowledgable in the area of traffic law, he went out of his way to do research on various topics and to contact colleagues regarding my particular matter. He created a strong case for me and represented me at a DMV hearing, making me feel confident and secure. John is reliable, returns your calls immediately, knowledgable, and above all else, a caring human being who genuinely has your back.

Excellent Attorney
When it comes to legal matters, John is my go to guy. His cordial and friendly manner helps to make the often scary legal world far less daunting. He’s always patient while answering questions, breaks things down to understandable chunks, but can also get as in depth as you care to go. When you ask him to handle a case which is outside his area of expertise, he won’t hesitate to refer you to another attorney. If you ever need a lawyer, this is the guy to talk to.

There when you need him.
John has a lot of integrity and is very responsive and knowledgeable. He worked on some business contracts for me and I'm looking forward to working with him again in the near future. I highly recommend John.

Excellent and knowledgeable
Attorney John E. Cowan was exceptionally helpful in defending us when our tenants broke their one year lease. His professional advice was invaluable and his well informed response was clearly and promptly executed in the letter he composed on our behalf. I would highly recommend John Cowan, attorney at law, to anyone looking for an astute and well prepared lawyer.

thoughtful and competent
I as surprised at how little money John charged me over the four years where he gave me professional and heartfelt legal advice. I have been facing an evection and I am an elderly disabled tenant, although John helped me with the real estate problem I would recommend him for any situation where you needed a lawyer who was compassionate, honest , and insightful.
