Practice Areas

The lawyers of Cowan & Cowan provide legal services in Cherokee County and the surrounding counties in Western North Carolina, in the following practice areas:

Traffic Tickets

When issued a traffic ticket, paying it off can cause many unwanted consequences. Traffic tickets can result in significant fines, increased auto insurance premiums and loss of driving privileges. They cause the driver’s automobile insurance to go up for three years. In many cases, traffic tickets can also cause a person’s driver’s license to be revoked. Not to mention appearing in court can be both stressful and time-consuming.

At Cowan & Cowan, we take traffic violations very seriously. If you have recently been issued a traffic ticket, contact us immediately before paying any fines.

In many cases, our traffic attorneys can lessen the charge as well as reduce the increase in auto insurance premiums or prevent automobile insurance premiums from going up at all. We can also save our clients’ driver’s licenses in most situations. Cowan & Cowan may even be able to handle your case without you having to appear in court. Contact us today to speak with one of our lawyers about help with your traffic tickets.

Criminal Law

At Cowan & Cowan, we realize being charged with a crime is a serious matter. A criminal case can result in the loss of freedom and being sentenced to time in the county jail or the State prison system.

Examples of misdemeanors we have experience defending are simple assault, trespassing, communicating threats, disorderly conduct, domestic violence, and DUI/DWI. Serious felonies we have fought include breaking and entering, larceny, fraud, arson, burglary, kidnapping, rape and murder.

Land Condemnation

If the North Carolina Department of Transportation, a town, a county or an electric power company condemns an individual’s home or land, Cowan & Cowan can provide the legal representation a person needs.

Land condemnation happens whether or not the owner has any intention to sell, and a judge or jury decides the purchase price. Our land condemnation lawyers have experience in aggressively and zealously representing landowners in cases. We fight for owners to receive the full and fair market value of their properties taken by the condemnation.

If you have fallen victim to land condemnation or eminent domain, contact us today to speak with one of our lawyers about help with Land Condemnation.

Simple Wills

If you do not have a will, the State of North Carolina decides what happens to your property after your death. However, a properly drafted will makes it possible for you to control what happens.

If you’ve worked hard all of your life for your estate, land and other property—don’t let it go to chance. The team of will lawyers at Cowan & Cowan can help ensure your wishes are carried out. We have drafted hundreds of simple wills for our clients.
