About Me

Attorney James Victor Kosnett has represented students, their families, and licensed professionals throughout Central and Southern California since 1976.  A graduate of Yale University and UCLA School of Law, Mr. Kosnett's experience ranges from school hearings at every level (elementary through post-graduate), the Special Education Hearings Office, the Office of Administrative Hearings, and federal, state, and local agencies, to Courts at every level (Superior to Appellate state courts, and federal District Courts and Circuit Courts of Appeal).  He is also admitted to the U.S. Tax Court, and has never lost a case before the Board of Equalization or the Franchise Tax Board.


 


Mr. Kosnett especially enjoys enabling a student to advance or graduate, and assisting a professional in obtaining or preserving his or her license, often utilizing negotiation and alternative dispute resolution to achieve the best result for his clients at the lowest possible cost.
