VIDEO: Is this Queensland's funniest lawyer?

WHEN lawyer Andrew Wiseman isn't keeping people out of jail, he is winning followers on social media with slow-motion videos of him working out. 

Mr Wiseman is the principal of Wiseman Lawyers, a firm specialise in driving offences, but he has become better known on social media for his selfies and slow-motion workout videos.

Last week he was in Gladstone defending a man who was facing his ninth disqualified driving offence --- the man walked free and Mr Wiseman bragged by taking a selfie outside the courthouse.

Mr Wiseman's Instagram account also shows him weightlifting, walking back to his car with his firm's reggae theme song and pictures of dogs driving cars.

"I'm trying to have a bit of a laugh and show my personality," he said.

"When I'm not keeping people out of jail I'm just like everyone else."

But he said he tries to give his defenders some jokes in the courthouse.

"When I go into the courtroom I have got my game face on and I am playing for sheep stations," he said.

"But I do make stupid jokes at the bar table to my clients, even if they are almost a certainty of going to jail because they don't need to feel any worse, they know they did something wrong."

The Brisbane-based lawyer prides himself on going to every courthouse in Queensland started the account to separate himself from other law firms.

"I was doing videos with a camera stuck on the dashboard but that was very labour intensive," he said.

"I started blogging and initially used stock photos then I realised I had arms as long as a selfie stick and started taking photos outside of courthouses all around Queensland.

"So I just started an Instagram account with them but the last couple of months I've been having some real fun with it."
