About Us

Over 30 years ago David J Cowan set up a legal practice from his family home, and quickly built up a base of clients who were willing to trust in him as a newly qualified solicitor. Soon the practice grew and David moved into the Firm’s current premises on South Street Dorking, where is has had its presence in the community ever since.

Since then, the Firm has continued to blossom and its trusted reputation for excellence and client care has stood the test of time. The Firm became Cowans Solicitors LLP, welcoming Sarah Hart into the partnership alongside David in 2015.

The Firm’s heart is to continue to serve the Dorking community and the surrounding areas, with excellence and a caring service. Unlike many Firms nowadays, we still offer Legal Aid (in criminal work) and seek to see justice done in every situation.

Our expertise cover all the main areas of high street practice:

Buying or selling your home
Making your will
Probate and trust administration
Family law matters
Criminal law
Road Traffic Law
Military Law
