Toby Potts has just qualified as a barrister and is about to embark on a career in one of the world's oldest professions. Stirring speeches to rapt juries, triumphant press interviews and enormous fees paid by grateful clients. he can see it all. But unfortunately, he has reckoned without Judge 'Bonkers' Clarke, The Honourable Mr 'Sourpuss' Boniface and a range of other equally terrifying, grumpy and borderline insane judges - not to mention tricky solicitors, bent coppers and dodgy defendants.
About the Author
Toby Potts is the nom de plume of David Osborne, an English barrister, author, public performer and after dinner speaker. In his early years at the Bar, he hit the headlines nationwide and made legal history when he delivered his final speech to the jury entirely in verse. For this 'tour de force' he was dubbed the Barrister Bard by the popular press. David followed this with the publication of a short humorous book on advocacy entitled 'No Holds Barred' written under the pseudonym of Ivor Bigg-Wigg QC. He has appeared on radio and television, and has written a number of articles of topical legal interest for the national and regional press as well as various journals. He has also written and presented two legal revues for the stage, both to full houses. David is married with four children.
