About Janne

Learn Janne’s areas of practice.


My practice is restricted to BANKRUPTCY and DOMESTIC RELATIONS.  I was born and raised in California and was educated in the public schools in Palo Alto, CA, and I attended the University of California at Berkeley.  I obtained my Juris Doctor from the University of South Carolina, School of Law, in 1986.

The BANKRUPTCY part of my practice enables me to assist people whose debts are so large that they are unable to pay the debts.  One of the most common situations is when a person is in danger of losing their home in a foreclosure or claim and delivery action.  By filing a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, that individual can save their home and be able to consolidate and pay their debts.  In other cases, people have lost their jobs due to illness and are unable to pay the overwhelming medical bills or have incurred large credit card debt while they were unemployed.  There are provisions of the bankruptcy code which can help people in these situations.

The DOMESTIC RELATIONS part of my practice concerns divorce, orders of separate maintenance and support (“legal separations”), child support, custody and visitation.  I represent both men and women and have represented grandparents and children in the Family Court.  Although the majority of my cases are in Orangeburg County, I frequently appear in Calhoun and Bamberg Counties, as well as Aiken, Barnwell, Lexington and Richland Counties.

I first came to Orangeburg when I began working for Palmetto Legal Services in March 1987.  I remained with Palmetto Legal Services until the end of 1989 and went into private practice in January 1990.  I opened my own law firm in July 1990 and have maintained my own firm since that time.

I moved to Orangeburg from Columbia in 1989, and have lived in Orangeburg continuously since that time, except for fifteen (15) months spent in Anchorage, AK.  I have been active in the Orangeburg Democratic Party and served on the Board of Directors for the Family Health Center, Inc.  I am married to Edward Braun and have two (2) daughters, one (1) son and two (2) granddaughters.  In addition, I share my life, home and office with a tyrannical 3 lb. Teacup Poodle named Coco Chanel and three (3) cats: an orange tabby housecat named Jasper (a/k/a “Jasperator the Exasperator) and an orange tabby named Marmelade and a gray tabby named Stinkerpie who are referred to as the “Snake Wranglers” because their job is to keep the backyard free of the snakes that are so common at homes on riverbanks.

Excellent Lawyer
Mrs. Osborne was wonderful as a lawyer and as a person. We retained her for a family law matter and could not have been happier with her and the results she achieved.

Client Review
I recommend that anyone who would like a lawyer that works for her client to chose Mrs. Osborne. She kept me informed of everything step by step. Educated me when I needed it. She was just excellent and I highly recommend her.

Review of Janne Osborne
Janne Osborne is an excellent attorney. She helped me with my Chatper 13 bankruptcy. Although the process scared the wits out of me, she was very knowledgeable and trustworthy. She walked me through the entire process and kept me informed at every turn. She kept me up to date on everything regarding my case and made the process easy and bearable for me.

Condescending and Unfriendly: Look Elsewhere
When I explained my problem all my responses was condescending and extremely unfriendly. I should have taken this as a hint run away. She is NOT knowledgeable, does NOT care about your problem, and is PURELY in it to get your money. DO NOT TRUST HER. You will get nothing and spend a lot. I should have asked specific questions. I should have gone some place else.
