Joseph Osborne earned a bachelor’s degree from Brown University in 1987 and a law degree from the University of Florida in 1990. He is licensed to practice law in Florida and admitted to the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
A member of the American Association for Justice and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, he has been practicing for 25 years and spent 18 years as a partner with Babbitt, Johnson, Osborne & LeClainche.
He started Osborne & Associates in 2015 and remains the principal owner. With offices in Boca Raton, Florida, Joe and the firm have been recognized by The South Florida Legal Guide, Legal Elite and the Daily Business Review for their track record and reputation. In 2010, Joe was a finalist for the South Florida Daily Business Review’s Lawyer of the Year and has been recognized nationally by Super Lawyers.
Joe limits the practice to complex civil litigation, including mass torts. In November 2014, Joe obtained a $26.7 million verdict as lead counsel in the Southern District of Florida on behalf of four clients who suffered injuries from Boston Scientific’s Pinnacle Pelvic Floor Repair Kit.
The Pinnacle mesh kit is implanted to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Each client was awarded an average of $6.6 million in compensatory damages due to injuries suffered from the defective design of the product.
Most recently, in March 2017, Joe received a verdict against Zimmer for over $2 million in Albuquerque, New Mexico due to the premature failure of its M/L Taper Kinectiv hip implant. It is believed to be the first case to proceed to trial against Zimmer for claims involving the failure of the Kinectiv.
