This seminar is led by “The Student Loan Lawyer™” who has been featured on Bloomberg, CNN, NPR, and Fox News, to name a few. Attorney Cohen has been helping individuals across the country with their student loans since 2008 and has trained more than 300 attorneys.

Why is a lawyer leading this seminar?

Joshua R. I. Cohen, The Student Loan Lawyer, has recognized that most student loan issues are financial in nature, not legal. However, the process of determining a person’s options and how to enact them is buried in regulations and legal speak. He will unwind the legal speak and break the items down into easily understandable options you can include with your services, making you more valuable to your clients. And, if there turns out to be a legal issue, you know the expert to go to!
