Janis Cowhey, Modern Family & LGBT Services Group Co-Leader, Interviewed on PBS NewsHour Segment, "More LGBT Weddings? More Wedding Cakes!"
In the days since the Supreme Court made gay marriage legal around the nation, our correspondent Paul Solman has been looking at the likely financial boost for the wedding industry and the broader economy.
He went to Ohio, one of the four states at the center of the case that was before the Supreme Court.
- JANIS COWHEY, Partner, Marcum LLP
- We have just a wedding industry that's about to boom. Now you can get married in all 50 states. So there will be weddings, there will be honeymoons, there will be planning.
- PAUL SOLMAN:
- There will also be plenty of new business for the likes of Janis Cowhey, an accountant and lawyer.
- JANIS COWHEY:
- We have got accountants who need to do tax returns, maybe amended tax returns, maybe review past tax returns. And we have got lawyers who need to review estate planning documents, you know, what do you need to do going forward, what do you have in place until now, so there's a lot that's going to change.
