"Paul's work is superior, timely and with great attention to detail. He is always willing to go the extra mile and he is very devoted and dedicated to any task at hand. I highly recommend Paul, his integrity and his ability to accomplish any task."
"Paul Kossof is one of those simply amazing persons. He speaks English, Italian, Spanish, and Chinese -- each without an accent. He is an efficient and diligent researcher. He is particularly focused and productive -- no other student in the history of The John Marshall Law School published so many articles and TWO BOOKS before graduation. He has also won legal writing awards as a further testament to the quality of his writing. If you are looking for a multicultural, multilingual, and exceptionally competent person, look no further."
