James Otis

James Otis (February 5, 1725 – May 23, 1783) was a lawyer in colonial Massachusetts who was an early advocate of the political views that led to the American Revolution. The phrase "Taxation without Representation is Tyranny" is usually attributed to him, along with the phrases "If we are not represented, we are slaves" and "A man's house is his castle".

He was born at Barnstable to James Otis and Mary Allyne, the second of thirteen children. His older sister, Mercy Otis Warren his brother Joseph Otis, and his youngest brother, Samuel Allyne Otis also rose to prominence, as did his nephew Harrison Gray Otis.
