I can't began to say enough about Mark Osman. This is a man to admire and respect. He is very knowledgeable about the law, a great source of information and very professional. He is obviously competent, efficient, extremely well informed. Be prepared and ready to be constantly kept in the loop. He is available to ask and answer everything. If you want an attorney that will fight for you - then call Mark.

The most important trait I wanted in an attorney was TRUST. Getting an attorney that I could trust in representing ME. Trust in his ability to quickly settle outside of court, trust in his knowledge of the law (employment cases), trust in his honesty and fairness to me as a client. Trust that he cared about my well-being and the well-being of my family. He fought daily on my behalf. Any time I called him, he answered. He always asked for my input and then made decisions WITH me. I felt informed, confident, and calm throughout my case. I don't know of any cases that are easy to deal with as a client, but in my case, I was at ease. I highly recommend Mark Osman to get the job done in a timely fashion. To this day, I still get a phone call from him checking in on me to see how I am doing. I will forever be grateful for this honest man. RESULT: settled out of court for more than what was first negotiated, yet took very little pay from me. That is what I call "trusting an attorney".

Within a few hours, Mark reviewed my executive separation agreement, articulated very clearly the areas of issue and provided me with ideas to position for leverage and negotiation. I was impressed with his professionalism, responsiveness and clarity. I will call on him again should the need arise and highly recommend him.

His follow up was excellent and if I had any questions he would always get back to me right away. He kept me informed every step of the way. Mark is a very experienced attorney and I would highly recommend Mark. He is the best they get!

Mark did a great job assisting me in an employment matter. He was thorough, knowledgeable and effective. His efforts defending me resulted in a settlement where I had to pay nothing.

I hired Mr. Osman in a recent employment case and I was fascinated with the amount of support that Mr. Osman provided me during the entire case. Mr. Osman's diligence is a key to success in any case.

Mark Osman represented me in an employment matter recently. He was a very effective advocate, a great communicator and a consummate professional in handling my matter. He demonstrated professionalism, pragmatism, and a sincere desire to help me get an outcome that I found acceptable. Mark's knowledge of the local employment law landscape was especially helpful for my matter. He was extremely reliable and responsive whenever I had a question or concern. I would recommend Mark to anyone with an employment law matter.

Mark A. Osman represented me in a wrongful termination case. After over a year of working together I can assuredly say:
He lacks timeline management. He kept pushing critical dates back and did the bare minimum to get a third of what many attorneys before and since said my case was worth.
He’s lazy for lack of a better word. I spent days filling out forms, such as interrogatories, making calls, etc. that were met with, ‘Why are you doing this? Your attorney is the one who does this’. His famous line is, ‘I’m working hard and getting it done’, most likely he isn’t (during a 7 month period I learned that a critical date was pushed back because he didn’t fill out necessary forms needed for us to proceed). It took him over a year to completely understand the basic data needed to negotiate the case.
He is not a strategic thinker; Doesn’t see the big picture. He has a cookie cutter approach that is predictable, compliant, lacks the ability to see the defenses counter moves motives, strategies and is complacent with results.
He lied to me at times. On many occasions and several documented he told me one thing (which I didn’t think was the truth) only to find out 3 weeks or more later, when off guard, he would share the truth. Many times we would agree on a topic and later I would find out he told the defense the opposite (eDiscovery is big these days; if you sell your computer and tell Attorney Osman don’t be surprised if the defense asks you to produce it along with his approval during a deposition).
He gets intimidated easily by the defense. I can’t begin to tell you how many sleepless nights I had due to his fearful responses to anything the defense said no matter how unfounded it would be. Two weeks later he would be, ‘over’ it.
He uses a, ‘Cheat Sheet’ of objections that is frankly embarrassing when sitting across from the defense. He will tell you he has been doing this for over 29 years.
He has average intelligence. I have many attorney friends I’ve made throughout the country over my career. They were brilliant and I had hoped for someone that I could trust had things in control and would think of things, look at, ‘Angles’ that brilliant people do. This unfortunately wasn’t the case.
Mr. Osman is nice and kind if you decide to work with him. He is at his best when trying to get you to retain him. He will always tell you things are going well. But, if you really think, ask and listen to a question you pose to him you may realize he is excellent at redirecting the conversation or suddenly has to go.
I hired Mr. Osman because I needed someone who knew the law to take charge, get up to speed quickly, see the big picture and then leverage it with his skills and talents. Unfortunately I never saw this in our 13 months of working together.
Mr. Osman is rare in that he is not arrogant and is very friendly and easy to talk to. But I learned a great deal about the legal system and realized I needed more than a nice guy to represent me and get results. In the end I did get a settlement about 10 times less than Mr. Osman put on the original Statement of Claim he sent to the defense in the beginning of the case.

Mr. Osman successfully represented me in a racial discrimination case with my fromer employer. I found Mark to be very professional and passionate about my case. Throughout the entire process Mark kept me in the loop with the case. Mark is patient and honest and I appreciate his dedication. After my first meeting with Mark I knew that I had hired the right attorney. I highly recommend Mark Osman.
