David Osborne is a barrister, author, public performer and keynote speaker. He was called to the English Bar in 1974, and to the Irish Bar in 1986. After many years specialising in Criminal Law, he has recently broadened his legal practice to include the Civil Law.
He has always been interested in writing, and he has an active blog at http://www.david-osborne.com/blog, where he comments on topical issues of the day. He has also had his fair share of media exposure as a legal commentator.
Many years ago, David hit the headlines nationwide and made legal history when he delivered his final speech to the jury entirely in verse. He is pleased to report that his totally bemused client was gloriously acquitted, and for this "tour de force", he was dubbed the Barrister Bard by the popular press.
He wrote a short book on advocacy entitled "No Holds Barred" written under the 'nom de plume' of Ivor Bigg-Wigg QC. His humorous book "May It Please Your Lordship" written under the 'nom de plume' of Toby Potts, is now available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle. One reviewer wrote: "Here we have all the hallmarks of a great British Comedy, but with a fresh approach".
His second book in the Toby Potts series entitled Order in Court and authored by David is now available on Amazon.
