About Josephine

Learn Josephine’s areas of practice.

I opened my law practice in the Austin area in 2008, shortly after moving from Chicago. My practice focuses on family law. My varied background helps me to listen to, educate and advise clients beginning with the initial consultation. I help my clients work through difficult issues to devise solutions and advocate for plans that are in the client’s best interests. I maintain an edge for my clients through continuing legal education. I am an alumnus of the University of Illinois and graduated from Northern Illinois University College of Law with honors. I come to law with a background in education and international human resources, and am a fluent French speaker. Prior to moving to Texas, I practiced family, criminal and civil litigation with the Chicago law firm of Ariano, Hardy, Nyuli, Johnson, Richmond, and Goettel, P.C. Josie also clerked for U.S. District Court Judge Philip G. Reinhard, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Explosives, and Arson, the Office of the Illinois State Appellate Defender, and the Office of the Kane County State’s Attorney.

Perfect Partnership
I was highly recommended to Margaglione Law by a few men who had been through their own divorces with very favorable results. I had a unique situation where I needed limited divorce services. Margaglione Law was very accommodating and did their best to educate me while working with me throughout the process. I was treated with personal care, not simply as a paying client. The most admirable aspect of their service was that they allowed me to have a continuous voice regarding our relationship so that I felt I received a fair service at a fair price.

Josie Helped & Won Me The Impossible!
I was originally referred to Josie by a Personal Injury attorney that attended Law School with her. I had already been divorced for 4yrs, but needed help with the impossible, to somehow overturn what I originally agreed to in my divorce decree. Josie & team did an amazing job & helped make my case (vs opposing counsels) look like the obvious choice for the Judge to side with. The team was always pleasant to speak with & easy to get ahold of. The team works very VERY well together! At times, I thought I needed to speak with Josie, but quickly learned that her Paralegal, Receptionist & even her Admin Assistant knew the answers I was looking for. They all kept ea other aware of what was going on in my case & they seemed genuinely interested in helping me WIN......& they did just that. I also learned a lot about Family Law when working with Josie & team. I had originally thought that a good Family Law attorney was someone who was very aggressive & mean, but learned how treating everyone with respect made for a better experience & results! Nice job Josie & Team! I highly recommend The Margaglione Law firm to anyone who needs an amazing legal team to fight for them! Two thumbs up!!!

Could Not Be Happier
After 15 years of being told there was nothing that could be done about my egregious divorce settlement Josie took on my challenge. And within 6 months we had renegotiated and resolved my original decree. For the first time since getting divorced I felt like I had a team that actually cared about my situation. They made a difficult task almost pleasant, and got me the result I wanted. Could not be happier.

Effective
Very organized and knowledgeable of the law, extremely helpful in a difficult divorce and child support order. Honest about the possibility of real results and thus you don’t go down a rabbit hole.

A Wonderful Attorney Firm
I needed an attorney that would treat me with decency and perform in such a manner that demanded respect and power. I was treated with great respect and they stood firm when I needed them to. In a difficult divorce case I needed an attorney that was not afraid to go up against a powerful opponent. I received all that I could expect and it was done with strength and class. In the end we were successful. I took back my life, my reputation and my financial security.

Happy to have met you
The saying goes "you get what you pay for" and I beg to differ. In the matter of priceless art or artifacts, you may get very little for a hefty sum of money. When it comes to your loved ones, these priceless items are mere trinkets in comparison to the value of the quality of life in regards, especially, to one of your children. What I paid for and what I got from Margaglione law don't even begin to compare to each other and my child has had an immense improvement in their quality of life. As far as the cost, they were up front and honest about what the costs associated could be and I have yet to see the worst case scenario to date. I highly recommend the services provided here, not only based on the quality and professionalism but for the highly family oriented and positive vibes that were desperately needed in my troubling situation.

Advocate for Fathers
From start to finish, Josie and her team were diligent in providing me with clear direction on how best to navigate one of the most difficult undertakings I’ve ever faced. Josie and her support staff worked tirelessly to ensure that the boys and I were protected and set up for success going forward. There are no winners in the divorce process, but the Margaglione Law team provided me with the resources, instruction, and compassion I needed to see the bigger picture. Josie and team efficiently brokered an amicable mediation and tremendous outcome, in the face of incredible obstacles. The biggest take-away for me was that I had prompt responses from the team when I had questions, well documented, fair billings, and a trusted advocate moving forward. Best decision; Josie Margaglione and don’t look back.

Margaglione Law Team
My wife and I had a very good experience creating our "wills and wishes" as the entire Margaglione Law Team was supportive and sensitive towards us at every turn. We will recommend Margaglione Law to our family and friends going forward. Finally I am proud that the Margaglione Law Team donates their time and talents to the free "lawyers in the library" program. This is where our relationship withthe Margaglione Law Team began.

Best Lawyer I Have Ever Worked With
Mrs. Josie Margaglione is the absolute best lawyer I have ever worked with! You know all those cliche' things said about lawyers? Well, Mrs. Margaglione doesn't fit that description at all! She is a "real" person, down-to-earth, and absolutely amazing to work with. She really changed my view of lawyers out there. And although it's never a good thing to have to get a lawyer, if you need one, she is the one to get. She was a joy to work with, all things considered, and I will recommend her to anybody who asks. She has a great personality and obviously lives her life through integrity, both professionally and personally. I am quite taken with her style, and I have no doubt others will be too! She did an absolutely fantastic job on my case. She also worked on a case for my husband, and did a top-notch job there as well. She was on top of everything from the beginning to the end, kept me updated, never made me feel forgotten about, and actually turned an upsetting situation into something not so bad. Way more than I can say about any other lawyer that I have ever worked with. If I ever have a need for another lawyer, I will definitely be going back to Mrs. Margaglione. Go with Margaglione for all your legal needs, you will not be disappointed!

Excellent Attorney
Ms. Margaglione represented my daughter in a nuissance case between her and the City of Austin. With her representation and guidance the case got dropped and my daughter's record was expunged. Josie applied good professional judgement and a proper balance of being on top of things and strategic patience to let the system work in our favor. I would recommend Josephine Margaglione with complete confidence in her abilities.
