Jennie L. Osborne’s practice is devoted solely to family law, where she represents clients in all matters pertaining to family disputes, including divorce, alimony, child support, child custody, and domestic violence. Jennie’s approach with every client is to listen so she can understand the overall context of their legal issue. Gaining a sense of the broader family background, Jennie develops strategies that take into account all factors. She has a knack for developing open, trusting relationships with her clients. Given the emotionally charged aspects of many family law cases, especially when children are involved, Jennie works to create a solid outcome that can withstand future challenges and changes.

One of Jennie’s notable roles was serving as associate trial counsel to former New Jersey Governor James McGreevey in his divorce and custody litigation. The high-profile trial highlighted substantial issues involving joint custody, parenting time, celebrity goodwill valuation and employment evaluation. The entire case was intensely covered by national and local television, radio and print coverage. She gained invaluable experience in dealing with a highly volatile case where much of the legal action was scrutinized and evaluated in the court of public opinion.
