Your experienced guides through the wilderness of Family and Business discord

let us help relieve the burden of your CONFLICT

People who move in together, get married, have children together, or form a business together inevitably experience disagreements. Problems can sometimes escalate to the point that the relationship feels unsustainable. Perhaps trust has been breached, or the joy that you once felt in the relationship has been replaced with long awkward silences, passive-aggressive comments, or shouting matches. At such times, the urge to “lawyer up” and start invoking the power of the courts to protect your interests can feel pretty strong.

However, court battles normally result in more time spent fighting than solving problems. Court hearings often produce less-than-desirable outcomes for both parties, while litigation costs rack up—and more damage is done to the original relationships.

At Osborn Conflict Resolution, we believe it doesn’t have to be this way.

Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, we are committed to providing better dispute resolution alternatives to families and businesses facing seemingly irreconcilable conflict. Whether your conflict arises from separation and divorce, child custody, elder care or inheritance, or business partnership disputes, we have the knowledge and experience to guide you toward a resolution in which everyone gains a measure of success by avoiding the inevitable stress and expense of litigation.

What Our Clients Say

5 star rating

Excellently prepared for the tasks at hand

Unlike most attorneys these gentlemen were well researched, excellently prepared for the tasks at hand, and never let me down. We achieved the success I sought. There is so much pretense in the legal profession and I have worked with many attorneys. They stand out as real professionals.

5 star rating

The only lawyer who listened

Chris Osborn is of the best lawyers that I've encountered. This guy is dedicated, truthful, and will use all of their resources to get the job done. On MLK Day 2017, Chris was the only lawyer to answer the phone and listen. It truly is an honor to have been represented by one of the best in the business and I just want to say thank you for taking my case seriously. Peace and blessings.

5 star rating

Honest, Capable, and Approachable

I was referred to Chris through my pastor after my now ex-wife abruptly left a few days before Christmas. When I met with Chris and his team, it was clear they cared about their clients and wanted to help me get through this stressful time of my life. They guided me through the process and gave me both realistic and best-case scenarios. If you are looking for attorneys that are honest, capable, and approachable, look no further.
