About the Law Office of Stephen H. Osborne

When I started practicing law in 1992, I made a commitment to help people, and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing ever since. And while I handle all kinds of cases large and small, I focus on those who need my help the most – those with catastrophic damages.

But no matter the severity of the injury or damages, I handle every case personally and thoroughly. I believe clients deserve legal representation from someone who is experienced and committed to helping them. It’s what sets me apart from larger firms, and it lets me make law personal again.


I obtained my license to practice law in 1992 after graduating from Southwestern University School of Law. I earned my B.B.A. in Finance, with a minor in Economics from Southern Methodist University.


From 1992 to 1999, I worked for the civil litigation law firm of OSBORNE, JENKINS & GAMBOA and its derivatives. Since 1999, I have been practicing law independently to provide clients with the attention that they deserve.
