What Does It Mean To Hire A Community?

At McDowall Cotter, when you hire us, it means you benefit not just from one attorney but from a team of attorneys, paralegals and client service specialists who are devoted to your success and well-being.

Our team offers a wealth of knowledge, experience and tried and tested procedures that have been refined and implemented successfully over decades in courtrooms and boardrooms on behalf of our network of esteemed clientele. This is what you can expect from an organization whose roots in the community and in the practice of law go back half a century.
