On October 12, 1970, Mr. Cowan opened a law office as a sole practitioner and obtained a job as a part-time deputy prosecutor. As deputy prosecutor, he learned valuable skills at an early age and developed confidence in dealing with attorneys who are adversaries in various cases. With the part-time practice of law, he learned that the best source of new clients is from producing satisfactory results on a timely basis to existing clients. Representing individuals with undivided loyalty, unquestioned integrity and undying hard work resulted in more and more clients coming to him for advice.
In 1974, Indiana attorney Gerald Cowan resigned from his deputy prosecutor position and devoted full-time thereafter to the practice of law. As his clientele continued to grow, he began to narrow the areas in which he conducted his practice. As a result, today his practice is devoted almost exclusively to personal injury and car accident clients with significant damages and high net-worth will contest, trust contest and inheritance disputes.
He has found that after 34 years, with hard work comes the privilege of accepting only the clients who need attorney representation in major cases and wish an experienced Indiana accident and injury lawyer at their side. In his biography, which is included as a part of this web site, you will see that he is a published writer, former instructor of students, adults and even other attorneys. With hard work and undivided loyalty comes recognition from various lawyer rating services as well as from his fellow lawyers. These honors are also included in the biography.
Attorney Cowan believes that lawyers analyze the facts, research the law, negotiate the case, and if necessary, try the case, and God brings the results. In case after case, for more than 34 years, this has been the experience. Nevertheless, there is no substitution for hard work, a thorough investigation of the facts, a careful analysis, and a realistic application of the law to the facts at hand. Experience has proven that there is a new definition of luck. Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.
Cowan’s motto for many years that “You won’t get a good result if you don’t ask for it.” While Mr. Cowan “cut his teeth” in the will and trust arena, he later developed a practice of representing individuals in family inheritance disputes in high net-worth cases, most of which were quickly settled by negotiation or mediation.
