After working as an associate in two mid-sized firms for the first three years of his career, Mr. Osborn started his own office in 2008 with only one client and no staff.  Since that time, Mr. Osborn’s personal injury practice has rapidly grown to become one of the most successful in the San Joaquin Valley. He regularly handles a wide array of catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases, including cases involving major trucking and auto accidents, fires and explosions, industrial injuries caused by third-party negligence, brain injury cases and cases against commercial enterprises for failure to protect their patrons from third-party violence. Mr. Osborn also handles insurance bad faith cases and has experience in litigating products liability cases.

Mr. Osborn has litigated cases in nearly every county in California and several other states throughout the Western U.S. To date he has obtained more than eight figures in settlements and verdicts on behalf of clients.  Mr. Osborn is an active member of the State Bar of California, Los Angeles and Kern County Bar Associations, the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles, Consumer Attorneys of California and the National Fire Protection Association. In addition, he is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, two of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States, whose members have won million dollar and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements and whose membership consists of fewer than 1 percent of U.S. lawyers.  

Actively involved in the community, Mr. Osborn is a member of the board of directors of JJ’s Legacy, a non-profit organization that provides education and creates awareness regarding the importance of organ and tissue donation to support families of Kern County. Mr. Osborn became involved with JJ’s Legacy after representing the family of “JJ” (the young man for whom JJ’s Legacy is named) in a wrongful death case following a tragic auto accident. The Law Office of Timothy M. Osborn frequently contributes to various charities, including, but not limited to, The American Cancer Society, Make-A-Wish Foundation, The Wounded Heroes Fund of Kern County, JJ’s Legacy, CSU Bakersfield Foundation, Women’s Club of Bakersfield, Saint Agnes Foundation of Fresno, St. Baldrick’s Pediatric Cancer Foundation,, Active 20-30 Club of Bakersfield, and the California Waterfowl Association.

Mr. Osborn obtained his Juris Doctor from Pepperdine University.  Prior to law school, Mr. Osborn obtained his bachelor’s degree cum laude from Fresno State, where he attended on a football scholarship and was a three-time member of the Academic All Western Athletic Conference Team.

Genuine and Effective
When I first approached Tim Osborn with my situation surrounding a settlement, I was overwhelmed. Tim not only managed to find the best outcome for this particular situation but also reassured me by constantly keeping me informed with new developments. He is a dedicated attorney and a genuine person.

Amazing people getting the job done!
I had no idea how much work it takes preparing for a case to go to court. So over whelming for someone like me, that has never been to court. Tim and his staff worked hard for me, and I could not have been more impressed.

Great experience and outcome with Timothy Osborn's help.
In May, 2015, my wife and I were rear-ended at high speed on Hwy. 101 in central California. We were both injured and my Tundra truck sustained major damage, including a bent frame. Not long after the accident, we realized that the three insurance companies involved were not interested in helping us. On our doctor’s advice, we reached out for recommendations for an attorney. Our adult daughter recommended Timothy Osborn. Mr. Osborn took our case. Mr. Osborn secured maximum amount settlements from all of the involved insurance companies. Mr. Osborn did so while sparing us the unpleasantness of depositions, hearings and trials. Mr. Osborn’s office staff were knowledgeable, responsive and always pleasant. I would recommend the Law Office of Timothy Osborn to anyone in need of a personal injury attorney.

Guaranteed a good job and delivered
My wife and I needed an attorney and Tim was referred to us as someone who would represent both us fairly. I was impressed with his professionalism and his knowledge of what we needed in an attorney. When my wife and I had concerns he was prompt to address them. I appreciated Tim's client relationship but also consider him a friend.

What a gentleman!
I called Mr Osborne to see if he could help me with my case. Although he could not, he referred me to an excellent lawyer Ryan Conger. It was a perfect fit for me! Mr Osborne took time out of his day that he did not have to do with kindness and respect. I highly recommend this man for any of your needs. Sometimes talking to an attorney can be daunting and intimidating. But I think he is just a swell human being! I think you're in good hands with this man.

Professional and Committed
I have worked with Tim Osborn, both personally and professionally, and have experienced nothing but the highest degree of professionalism and integrity. Tim recognizes full justice requires a complete understanding of not only the facts and the law, but of the people he represents. Tim Osborn and his associates not only were willing to fight for justice on behalf of myself and my family utilizing all the resources of his firm immediately, he followed through with insuring all resources were available for me prior/post resolution. Honest, committed and fierce, Mr. Osborn will always be my first choice. Upon opposing counsel hearing the name of my attorney of choice, a substantial resolution was offered. And accepted. I feel confidant knowing Tim Osborn's credible reputation contributed highly to that offer.

Top Pick
After being hit head-on by a distracted driver, I was left with multiple fractures, neck and shoulder injuries, and a mild TBI. I contacted Mr. Osborn's office and Tim met with me that same afternoon. He continued that very same efficient care throughout the case and my healing process. Tim Osborn helped me find the best doctors who provided excellent care and follow-up. Tim always remained attuned to my care while fighting for me. More importantly, Tim Osborn has become a friend. I would recommend Tim Osborn as my top pick for an attorney who will successfully fight for justice.

Great experience with a trustworthy attorney
I had an auto accident in 2015 and found Tim Osborn to represent my case. Tim was incredibly knowledgeable about all facets of both my injuries and the insurance/court processes and helped me navigate to get the medical assistance I needed. Tim was always available by phone/email/text and did a fantastic job of both working for my best interests and making me feel valued as a client. Tim effectively communicated throughout the entire process and helped me feel comfortable and reassured that everything was going to work out. I would highly recommend Tim for both his personal touch and knowledge through the process.

The Best of the Best
When I needed legal help, I called Tim Osborn and the rest is history. I worked with Tim over the corse of about eight months and every time I needed to speak with him or had a question he was always there. When I would stop by the office, Tim gave me his undivided attention and I always felt like my case was the only case he was working on. In the end, I gained so much more than I was ever wanting when I started this journey with Tim. All I ever wanted was my job back, I got that and a friendship that will last a lifetime. Thanks Buddy!

Excellent Attorney
My experience with Tim Osborn was 100% positive. My case was deeply emotional involving the death of someone very close to me. Throughout our case Tim operated with a high degree of integrity and professionalism. He was very respectful, patient and sympathetic to the emotional elements of my case. Each step we took together was very well explained to me in layman's terms. I found it very easy to build trust with Tim, he's a very down to earth guy but don't let that fool you. He's also highly intelligent, assertive and fights hard when its time to battle. He always provided choices for me that we're mine to make. Tim kept himself available all hours of day by text, email or phone and never took long to get back to me. I also found all of the final costs to be very reasonable and fair. Tim Osborn is my guy for any legal matter!
