Meet Our Senior Partner, Steven H. Osber, Conrad & Scherer Law Firm, Fort Lauderdale

Steven H. Osber

After I graduated from college, I spent four or five years living on the best beaches on the East Coast. All trying to get into law school and knew when I sat down in my first day of class that it’s where I wanted to be and what I wanted to do. And I started working at a small personal injury firm in Boca. Which gave me a lot of experience in the courtroom involved in complicated cases and develop my skills as a trial attorney pretty quickly. From there, I went to a midsize firm and was doing commercial litigation and insurance defense type work and was able to develop the skills that I got as a young attorney and multiply those skills and really get involved in as a trial attorney at a very young part of my career. I probably had first chair law trials within five years of starting to practice law, which is unusual, especially as you get into more and more complicated matters. And since then, I’ve been fortunate to work for some large firms and now with with Conrad and Scherer. I met Bill Scherer in 2007, I had the opportunity to represent him and his firm enough in a pretty complicated matter. Developed a very close working relationship and a mutual respect for each other so much to the point that he actually became a mentor of mine.

I had the opportunity to represent a folk hero of Fort Lauderdale. A very unique businessman who owned a large flea market in Fort Lauderdale, and he was being sued by some fashion designers as a result of alleged counterfeiting. Being a lawyer is all about the practice of law and you always have to be on your game. And you always have to remember you’re dotting your I’s and crossing your T’s and making sure you’re aware of everything that you’re doing. So bad things don’t happen. The trial received significant amount of press coverage. I got to have as my co-counsel, a gentleman who was an extremely well respected lawyer in the community and through that experience, I was in trial in federal court involved in a very sophisticated complicated case. Working with a talented lawyer and had the opportunity to represent a part of Fort Lauderdale history.
