About Josh and the Workshops

Joshua Cohen, the Student Loan Lawyer, has been practicing law since 2008, defending and assisting consumers with student loan issues.  As the pre-eminent expert on this topic, Josh has been interviewed on Fox and Bloomberg as well as quoted in multiple news articles.

Josh has been receiving calls from people all over the United States seeking his help and in 2011 launched the Student Loan Law Workshop™. These workshops were originally designed specifically for lawyers to learn about student loans, potential solutions, how to defend consumers from a variety of problems and more. Having trained more than 300 lawyers, the workshop has expanded to educate Financial Advisors and others in the financial services industry who help consumers.

 These workshops assist professionals with understanding how to:

  • Assist borrowers and their families with federal student loan issues of all kinds;
  • Defend student loan collection lawsuits;
  • Using bankruptcy to better manage student loans;
  • Using consumer protection laws to help borrowers wronged by the industry; and
  • Settling overdue private student loan debts.

Within these topics, attendees learn:

  • The differences between the 9 different repayment plans
  • How to calculate payments
  • Impacts of Bankruptcy
  • Impacts of personal expenses on student loans
  • What it takes to help a consumer attain a more affordable payment plan
