Joseph Anthony Osborne
With two decades of trial practice, and an Ivy League pedigree, Joe Osborne has the experience and education to match the best litigators in the state - both on a resume and, more importantly, in the courtroom.
But Mr. Osborne brings another key advantage to every case he takes on: As a former partner at a personal injury defense firm, he has a unique insight on how the other side thinks. It enables him to understand - and overwhelm - the best defense strategies and tactics.
A former adjunct professor of business law at Palm Beach Community College, Mr. Osborne also understands that being able to explain complicated legal principals in simple language - whether to students or a jury - is one of the most potent tools a lawyer can possess. And also one of the most rare.
A skilled trial lawyer, Mr. Osborne knows that cases are often won or lost before they ever go before a jury. To that end, he puts a heavy emphasis on the deposition stage, aggressively yet carefully deposing hostile witnesses to extract the answers and information that can resolve a case quickly and justly for his client.
The case may always be the focus, but the client will always be the priority. Empathetic to their difficult situations, Mr. Osborne knows that a lawyer who isn't responsive to his clients' needs or queries isn't doing the job. Exceptional legal knowledge combined with first-rate personal service isn't a goal - it's essential. And it's what Mr. Osborne brings to every case he takes, and every client he helps.
