The Best California Student Lawyers

At the Kosnett Law Firm, we have a history of success in representing public school students. We advise students and parents of exactly what their legal rights and options are during a dispute with teacher, principal or school district.
Our firm represents a wide variety of public-school students throughout the United States, especially within the California counties of Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Riverside, San Bernardino, Kern, Imperial, 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.
Public schools are required to give the disabled student the proper accommodations and assistance, so she or he can be successful. We often have to advocate with the School District on the Student’s behalf, and appear at an IEP, or pursue Due Process in the administrative hearing offices.
If the School District tries to expel our client, we will represent him or her at every level; the meeting at the school; the expulsion panel at the District; the appeal at the County Office of Education; the appeal at the County Board of Education; and the petition for Writ of Mandate in Superior Court, if necessary.
If our student is not being graded fairly, we know how to address and remedy that problem.
If our student has a problem with residency in a district, athletic eligibility, a student organization, attendance, home schooling, advancement or retention—we can handle it.

  1. Expulsions, suspension, discipline
  2. Appeals
