The Best California Student Lawyer

At Kosnett Law Firm, we provide quality representation for students. We understand that due to some unfortunate circumstances, legal problems can arise during a student’s academic life and take their focus away from their studies. Kosnett Law Firm offers students the legal guidance and information they need to solve their problems.

Our firm represents a wide variety of university 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.

Kosnett Law Firm offers the following services to university students:

    1. Analysis of the problem at hand
    2. Researching the applicable rules
    3. Deciding on the best strategy and approach
    4. Preparing for meetings and hearings, and participating (if permitted)
    5. Coaching re presentation, testimony, witnesses and evidence
    6. Appearing at hearings (when college rules allow counsel to be present)
    7. Ghostwriting appeals
    8. Filing in Court

We can guide you through the university disciplinary process. In some cases, depending on the university, we can appear and defend you, or at least support you during the hearing or meetings with the Dean or administrator in charge. We can also negotiate with university counsel. If a case requires litigation, we can handle that as well. You must first exhaust your administrative remedies before you can file in Court.

We often supply speakers to student groups interested in legal issues, and we engage in legal education and research on a continuous basis.
