Andrew Wiseman is using Instagram to spruik his Queensland law firm.

Australia's legal fraternity isn't known for its love of Instagram. But one Aussie lawyer's doing his best to change that. His name is Andrew Wiseman.

The bearded Queensland solicitor, and prolific Instagram user, just can't get enough of the popular social media platform, posting identical selfies of himself outside more than 100 courts across the state.

In each of the photos the bespectacled Wiseman looks straight at camera really intensely as he stands outside courts including Toowoomba, Pine Rivers, Cleveland, Maroochydore and Sandgate.

The selfie-loving lawyer's poses aren't just funny, they're also a neat digital promotion for Wiseman's firm that specialises in drug, alcohol and traffic matters.

And going from his account the campaign looks to have been pretty effective, with @WisemanLawyers boasting 5,100 followers.

Wiseman has previously said he hopes the account will be taken in the right spirit. He says he's always willing "to have a laugh with you until it's time to put his game face on".

"I try to maintain my credibility, I don't want people to think I'm some clown. But at the same time you can have a laugh too!" he said recently.

The lawyer with a light-side also seems pretty good at his job and is a go-to guy for media, with appearances on TV as an expert on parking fines, drink driving and speed traps.
