We protect your educational investment.


At the Kosnett Law Firm, we specialize in representing all students, from grad school to grammar school. Whether you are a graduate student having difficulty with your dissertation committee, an undergrad accused of cheating, a high schooler facing expulsion, a middle school student getting bullied, or an elementary school student with a disability, we can help.

Our firm represents a wide variety of students throughout the United States, especially within the Southern California counties of Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Riverside, San Bernardino, Imperial, San Luis Obispo, and the Northern California Counties of San Francisco, Alameda, Sacramento, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Solano, San Joaquin, Contra Costa, Napa, Marin, Yolo, and Sonoma. We also represent International Students here and US students abroad.

We offer a free consultation, by telephone or in person, during which we analyze the problem at hand, discuss your options, and help you decide on the best strategy and approach. We answer all questions about fees, without any time deadline to make a decision.

Many of our University level students are facing discipline. We guide them through the process, either representing them directly, coaching them how to defend themselves, ghostwriting their appeals or going to court to seek judicial relief.

We have a lot of experience with Title IX, academic dishonesty, non-academic misconduct, fraternity/sorority issues, grade appeals, disabilities, financial aid, athletics, residency, transfers, and related matters such as drugs, alcohol, personal injury and criminal defense - so you don't need to consult with more than just one firm, Kosnett Law.

Most of our pre-college students, whether public or private, are dealing with expulsions, admissions, special education, due process, bullying, grading disputes, government tort claims against the District, and breach of contract actions against the private schools.

We also represent teachers, whether it be a college professor accused of harassment, a public school teacher wrongly treated by the District, or a private school teacher whose credential is being disciplined by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

I was referred to Kosnett Law Firm from a fellow parent who went through the same issue with the school district. He called me back BEFORE we had planned as he wanted to get right to work.

You exemplified law and justice, exclusive... read more

Thank you for all your help in preparing me for the SJACS meeting. I talked with my officer and after a few weeks of deliberation and discussion with my professor, he decided to give me a C- in the class.  They determined that I am only guilty of sharing one of the homework assignments and considered intent in the decision... read more
