About Cowles & Thompson
Founded in 1978, Cowles & Thompson is a Dallas firm with an outpost in Plano, Texas. As the firm grew, it committed itself to maintaining a diverse staff of attorneys and professional support. As evidence of this commitment, female attorneys have held equity shareholder positions since 1984. Since then, the firm’s Attorney Development and Diversity Program has helped hire and retain minorities and women at the firm.
