Josh Cohen / The Student Loan Lawyer

Josh was a college student at Brandeis University. He had no idea about the ugly side of student loans until he spent some time working in the financial aid office as part of his own financial aid package. He had a close up view and learned that education finance can ruin your life if you’re not careful.

He attended law school at Quinnipiac University School of Law and started learning about consumer protection law and how people were severely underrepresented when it came to protecting their rights.

As Josh began his third year of law school, the CLEP director invited Josh to a seminar being given by one of the Connecticut’s leading FDCPA attorneys. By the end of the seminar, Josh had lined up an interview with this lawyer and three weeks later started a part-time job as a law clerk at the lawyer’s firm, the Consumer Law Group.

In October of 2008 after a brief stint working for a well-known collection harassment lawyer Josh opened the Law Office of Joshua R.I. Cohen to help people with student loan problems. He now helps borrowers and their families with loans, defending debt collection lawsuits, and settling overdue private loans among other things.
