Testimonials

You are the utmost professional counselor.

On behalf of my family and me, I would like to thank you for the excellent guidance you provided to us. You are the utmost professional counselor. We are grateful for your expertise during a difficult time.

Melissa Yasinow has been a blessing to me and my family...

when we didn’t know who else to turn to. Melissa and her KJK colleagues diligently worked for almost a week to compile all the evidence necessary for my appeal. She wrote a brilliant and very professional appeal which successfully reversed the university’s original verdict. I would have been further humiliated by the university and would have had a permanent stain on my academic record if it weren’t for Melissa, Susan, and Kristina. Thank you!

I was a member of a fraternity at a public university that was kicked off campus for reported hazing.

My involvement with the fraternity was unaware of any misdeeds being done, and was shocked when the school charged me with failure to report hazing. Thats when I contacted Susan and Kristina, who were extremely helpful and wonderful to work with. Thanks to them they helped guide me through collecting proof of my innocence, which ended up leading to the result we wanted of no charges against me. I highly recommend their service to anyone who might need it!

Enough cannot be said for how helpful KJK was for me during my allegation process.

Susan, Kristina and Melissa were extremely knowledgeable and passionate toward my specific case. They consistently had steps of action to take in my defense and were extremely flexible when working with me. They helped prepare me, both mentally and emotionally, prior to my hearing. Thanks to their hard work, I now have my future back.”

– Successfully defended a pre-med undergraduate student for alleged cheating on a physics lab report and showed that the professor had made a critical error in basic mathematics.

Allow me to take this time to thank you for all of your hard work...

expertise and understanding toward clearing our son’s record and allowing him to resume his life without this undeserved burden. I could sense from our first meeting, your work in this area is not just an avocation, but a passion to affect change in the way these cases are decided. Your professionalism throughout the process was exceptional, especially with regard to your communications with me. I have never worked with an attorney group which made unprovoked calls to update us on the progress of our efforts!

Susan Stone, Kristina Supler, and Melissa Yasinow represented our male college freshman against a false Title IX claim

of non-consensual sexual intercourse. Current Title IX laws are strongly slanted in the accuser’s favor, and our son was denied due process by the university. This legal team expertly highlighted the accuser’s false accusations, while exposing the university’s many inconsistencies. They were there when we needed them – quick to take our phone calls or respond to our questions and concerns. Without their expert legal advice, our son would have likely been another silent and unfortunate victim of current Title IX university policies. We give Susan, Kristina, and Melissa the highest of recommendations!

Susan and Kristina are great lawyers.

They helped me resolve an extremely difficult academic dishonesty accusation case against me at the university level. They had helpful ideas and were persistent in making sure my defense was the best it could be. They were creative in their way of utilizing outside resources that helped achieve a positive outcome. Good, prompt responses to my questions. I highly recommend them!

The team that Susan Stone put together for me and my son was strong, passionate, knowledgeable and determined.

Together, they helped us build a strong IEP and gain one-on-one tutoring during school, all of which I am confident will help my son reach his full potential and then some! I could not be more thankful for my time with Susan, Kirsten and Vivian.

I am very grateful for all of the hard work Susan and her team put into defending me...

against a difficult situation with the school. They had very helpful opinions and were very tenacious in making sure my defense was the absolute best it could be. Susan and her team are very satisfactory and experienced, and they treated us with such compassion and integrity. They were very creative in helping find resources to help achieve a favorable outcome. They are very professional and always have informative responses to my questions. I highly recommend this team!!

– Successfully prevailed in an expulsion hearing and kept student in school after serious allegations of misconduct.

KJK guided us through a very difficult time in our lives...

and provided support that helped beyond the original request. The firm and advocate worked as a team to ensure a proper diagnosis, ETR and IEP. They were coordinated, communicative and confident. Their commitment to results and concern for our son was evident throughout the process.

Thank you for always working to understand the full situation and for exploring the entirety of issues at hand.

Thank you for always being supportive and for providing a productive, positive environment for working with us and most importantly, my son. I’m sure that he learned a lot from this situation, and we would not have been able to navigate without the help of both of you. Thank you for being tirelessly committed and for pursuing the best possible outcome.

– Obtained reversal of discipline sanction in housing misconduct matter.

We are very grateful for all the hard work that Susan, Kristina and her team put into a rather difficult case.

Our son was put in a very difficult situation while playing sports at the College level. His strength and conditioning coach recommended a pre-workout substance that he said was NCAA approved to use before working out. After submitting to a random drug test, he tested positive for that exact substance and was then suspended. Susan and Kristina represented our son during the NCAA appeal process. Ultimately, his suspension was overturned and he returned to the sport he loves. Thank you again.

Thank you all very much for your guidance throughout this 504 process.

We really appreciate it. We are happy with the result and feel a great deal more at ease that our child has a proper 504 plan guiding her school’s staff and administration. 

Kristina and Susan are very competent and experienced attorneys...

in Title IX and higher education law who treat their clients with integrity and compassion. Highly recommend this team!

When our son was wrongly accused of a Title IX violation, Melissa took the time ...

to really get to know him so that she could represent his case. She was a calming force for him when the school’s biased report was made. Melissa and team pushed for fairness and proper procedures. They were thorough in researching other cases and drafting proper legal correspondence with the school. In the end, with their persistent help and professionalism, my son was completely cleared of all accusations. I cannot recommend this practice enough. We love, Melissa, Susan, and Kristina. Thank you!

I worked with Melissa during one of the most emotionally trying periods of my life.

She was compassionate and professional towards me at all times. I appreciated her sincerity and straightforwardness. She was available whenever I needed her assistance, day or night and throughout the weekend, in putting my documentation together. Melissa was diligent and thorough; she familiarized herself with all the necessary information in an impressively short time frame given the complex nature of my case. I felt confident that I was able put my best possible case forward because I had Melissa Yasinow on my team. I highly recommend her services and I am forever grateful for the support she provided me.
