About Us
The Cohen Bros

Student Loan Toolbox™ is brought to you by the Cohen Bros. No, not those Cohen Bros. (they spell it Coen), but we do have a history of making people sing, dance, and smile when they find out there is a way to help them with their student loans.

Since Josh, the younger of the two, started working with consumers to help them with their student loans in 2008, the Cohen Bros. have been building tools. Initially, the intention was to help Josh with his own practice, but we found they were applicable to all who performed student loan work.

The Student Loan Lawyer

Josh, known as The Student Loan Lawyer, rolled out his workshop in 2011 and, with help from Jeff (developer, DBA and technology guru), the first version of this software in 2014. Initially called Student Loan Triage and Student Loan Self-help, we tried to bring the solution directly to borrowers but found that consumers needed clarification and support to make decisions. The best path was to empower legal and financial professionals. Now, with the workshop in its 12th year, over 500 professionals trained, and the third version of its software specifically developed for legal and financial professionals, Student Loan Toolbox has the most comprehensive set of tools, enabling you to focus on helping clients without the extreme chaos of performing student loan work on your own.

Tools for Legal and Financial Professionals

Combine the features of the software with the Student Loan Law Workshop for Legal professionals and Financial advisors, and you can quickly become the student loan expert in your area. Visit the Student Loan Law Workshop to learn more about the topics addressed by the workshop.
