Mark J. McGowan, Esq.

Mark J. McGowan is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Stanford University (1981) and of Stanford Law School (1984). As a Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate Law, a license and distinction of the California State Bar’s Board of Legal Specialization, he is devoutly dedicated to providing each selected client with personal, caring counsel, attentive accessibility, diligent performance and quality service.

Mark McGowan has been a great help to me, setting up my trust, advising me on real estate holdings and my farm here in Georgia. His ability to explain complicated issues to me makes important issues easier to make. I would recommend him and in fact I now run things by him before I sign anything. We all have holes in our education and a fellow like Mark can protect us from ourselves. Lu G.
