Mr. Osburn is one of the best lawyers I know. He not only represented me and got me a really good settlement in an extremely difficult case after defendant filed bankruptcy, but he is also my boss. He always puts the interests of his clients first.

Great experience!
Bob helped my wife and I after a bad car accident and really helped us to have one less thing to worry about. He dealt with everything and all the insurances very quickly and communicated everything that we needed to do. He made us feel safe and confident in his work unlike other lawyers that we scoped out. We got a great settlement and can’t thank him enough for just making it all easy and pain free.

Responsive and determined
After my father passed away in an accident, Robert Osburn did all he could to ensure we received a fair compensation to help pay for expenses. He was tireless in negotiations, and kept pushing on our behalf. I never would have had the emotional strength to be so persistent and he was always there to answer our questions right away. We HIGHLY recommend Mr. Osburn and his team!

Mighty good attorney
Bob Osburn’s office did great and diligent work they helped us through difficult times. He was clear through every step of the way. I can confidently say that he was there to listen and find justice for us. When it was time to find evidence, he had taken every step from the moment we reached out to him. When it was time to take legal action, he didn’t hesitate. As a result, Bob got us what we deserved. I would highly recommend Bob to everyone based on his integrity, compassion and commitment.

Testimonial March 30, 2017
I was in a tragic car accident which required neck surgery. I did not know who to call and Bob Osburn was referred to me. I would refer Bob to anyone without hesitation. He fought the case for me and I was able to have peace of mind that all was being done during my recovery as he tirelessly handled all issues concerning the payments owed for the surgery and I received an additional fifty thousand. I highly recommend Bob to anyone who seeks a competent straight shooter. He is my lawyer for life!

review of quality representation
Robert Osburn has represented me in four cases since 2007. These cases all involved issues that could have been the subject of a lawsuit. one case was a construction dispute which Osburn was able to settle in my favor for $83,000.00. Another was a property tax suit. Mr. Osburn settled the suit to my satisfaction. the third suit was a contract dispute involving a partnership which I was a minority shareholder. Mr, Osburn filed a derivative action on behalf of the Partnership and myself. The case was tried and then appealed my defendants. Mr. Osburn and his associate Billy McGill filed and appeal. This case eventually settled in our favor for an amount in the mid seven digit figures. The forth case was a probate matter, which was settled. Mr. Osburn along with Mr. McGill are great lawyers who have a real down to earth demeanor. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for such a lawyer.

Review of Robert Osburn
I officed with Bob Osburn for approximately ten years and have known him professionally for 30. I have recommended him to clients of mine who had litigation matters that I could not handle and I hired him to file suit for me and my wife against my wife's previous employer. Bob Osburn is knowledgable, diligent and tenacious on his client's behalf. I have recommended Bob Osburn to others and will continue to do so.

Review of Professional Services
Robert Osburn (Bob) has provided legal services to my company for more than a decade. I have worked with him both in a business I run and in the business I own. He has given me legal advice involving my competitors, clients, and other businesses I have consulted with. He has unfailingly given me thoughtful and well researched advice. He has listened and taken the time to learn the intricacies of my particular field. He is always prompt to return calls and kept me up to date and informed as to what was going on in relation to my particular cases as well as apprising me of changes in the legal system that may affect any ongoing issues. I would highly recommend his services.

Mr. Osburn was helpful to me in a disability appeal.
I had worked as a teacher in a public school district & purchased a long-term disability policy sponsored by the district. I became disabled at the age of 54 in 2009 & was approved to receive long-term benefits until the age of 65. After 2 years, I was cut off by the company. Mr. Osburn helped me with the appeal, but because the 3 doctors that initially supported me in the beginning wouldn't respond on my behalf for the benefit of the appeal, there was no hope to win. Even though Mr. Osburn told me it would be nearly impossible to succeed under these circumstances, he went ahead & did all he could to persuade the insurance company. He kept me informed about each response from the insurance company, returned calls promptly, & many times answered the phone himself. His staff is personable & helpful, & there is nothing I could suggest that Mr. Osburn or his staff could have done any differently to help me in this situation.

I suffered a terrible accident, in which I loss both arms at the shoulders and parts of face, and scalp. Mr. Robert Osburn successfully represented me thru out the trial in which he won the case against a big corporation. If anybody needs a lawyer I recommend to you Mr. Osburn he is truly, trusted, and sincere lawyer, that could help you with any matter you might have. Whenever I need an advice he is always willing to assist me in any matter I might have.

A Bulldog of an Attorney
Bob not only stood up for me, but was able to be a valuable offensive force against a well represented opponent. By no means was my corporate divorce an easy win, given the barrage of fiery darts coming at us. There were good days and those that weren’t, but he was always upfront and honest during the process, and his attacks and counter attacks always seemed well timed and appropriate in force. I give Bob a wholehearted favorable recommendation.

Genuine Man
My husband was badly burned by a faulty electrical panel. While he lay helpless in the hospital, my brother recommended I consult with Bob Osburn. Bob was wonderful. He jumped right in and went to work fighting for my husband when he couldn't fight for himself. Going to trial was something we had never imagined for ourselves. We were so nervous. Bob was there all the way, reassuring us. Bob knows his stuff! I think the world of him and would highly recommend him.

Bob Osburn became our lawyer in 2004 - he will remain our trusted friend for life.
Mr. Osburn was recommended to my husband and me by a mutual and trusted friend. I had sustained a severe back injury and broken tailbone due to a retailer's negligence. At our first consultation, Mr. Osburn didn't promise us lots of quick easy money for our dilemma. He did encourage us that we did not have to fight this battle alone. As the weeks and months passed, he fully engaged himself to represent our best interest. He became our counselor, our teacher and our warrior. As counselor, he thoughtfully listened to my story, showed genuine concern for my pain and related the options we could pursue. As teacher, he instructed us how to log our journey and prepare for trial. And as warrior, he prepared diligently and effectively for a battle he was not afraid to fight. He secured multiple professional consultants to validate our situation and establish our rightful claim. He left no stone unturned. On the day our trial was to begin, he charged into battle and secured a good and proper settlement. The opposition was not prepared for his keenness and professional wisdom. Even after the initial victory, he further negotiated successfully with the insurance company to release funds to us that they claimed were theirs because of the settlement. I believe Mr. Osburn to be a man of integrity and professional propriety. I highly recommend him and would secure his services if ever needed in the future.

Breaking out the Big Gun
Bob was referred to us by another attorney who we knew personally and who had already initiated litigation in our behalf. The case started slowly, and our attorney decided it was in our best interest if the case was handed off to the more experienced Mr. Osburn, a personal injury specialist. Bob jumped right in and everything started happening very quickly. It was immediately apparent that Bob was extremely capable with a flair for the dramatic. As we all know, liability cases tend to stretch on forever. Not with Bob at the helm. His well-prepared case intimidated the defendants and his eloquence at the mediation table silenced the opposition resulting in a sizeable settlement without stepping inside a courtroom. I also believe that the award was one of the largest awards for a slip and fall case in the Dallas area. We have no hesitation recommending Mr. Osburn. His preparation was definitely the key to winning our claim. Anyone engaged in a contingency claim understands that large settlements breed large expenses, and while you may never have to break out your entire arsenal, showing the other side that you are prepared to do so, gives the plaintiff the edge in these kind of matters. So, the plaintiff should expect that expenses will be costly "to make your case", and that all out-of-pocket charges are netted off the top, and then the agreed commission is computed. Even if the contingency rate is 33%, or even 40%, which are typical rates in these type cases, net settlement money to the plaintiff will almost always be less than 50% of the final award. Even after the final accounting of the charges, we were satisified with the end result.

Personal Injury/ Wrongful death case
I hired Mr. Osburn's firm in 2007 after the death of my daughter and his law firm has been very helpful and has stayed for the long haul. The people that we are and were suing keep the case going for 4yrs and the law firm did not give up. Anytime that I had a question and called they were always quick about getting my answers to me. I would recommend this lawyer and his firm for your needs. Thank You BOB
