I went to James for a UCLA academic misconduct case. James is very knowledgeable about cases like this since he has dealt with many dean meetings and hearings. At the initial consultation, he explained to me how the general process works. At our first meeting, James gave really on-point advice based on his past experience dealing with the school about what to do at the dean's meeting. He had a way to help make my wording more convincing. So James is very sharp about these things.
A the end, we were able to win our case at the dean's level without going through a hearing. So, if you're involved in messy academic dishonesty accusation, I'm sure James is able to help make the case better.

Kosnett was just very disinterested, arrogant, old and unprofessional during the whole matter. He was so rude that he often interpruprred our talking. He doesn't not care much the result and the process, all his interest lies on the money, because he charges the same amount of money no matter what the result is. He did not better our chance of wining the case by any means- He wrongly assumed his good old little strategy would work everywhere without tailoring to the situation of individual client. Unproeasionally dressed and talking arrogantly to clients. People hire him out of desperation but all he is interested is the money, not about doing all he can to help people win; money always come first for him!!

James Victor Kosnett Esq. is an extremely experienced education lawyer, and as his client I felt he 'had my back.' He is responsive to email and phone inquiries and gives you the best advice. Every time I have hired Mr. Kosnett, he has resolved the matter quickly with one or two strongly worded letters. Santiago is a prompt and professional legal assistant. I would recommend the Kosnett Law Firm without reservation.
