This isn’t your typical pro bono work. A Boone County lawyer has become an internet celebrity thanks to his Facebook page, “L. Scott Briscoe’s Free Legal Tips.” Briscoe works as court-appointed attorney for children, whether they’re juvenile delinquents or victims of child abuse, so the posts started as a way to bring levity to what can be a heavy job. “If I didn’t have a sense of humor I couldn’t do what I do. That’s my coping mechanism,” he says.

Now Briscoe’s tips have gone viral, showing up everywhere from the Huffington Post to George Takei’s Facebook page. He got a publishing deal and is now compiling a book of his funny but-true advice. “It’s all true. Ninety-five percent have happened in my presence and 5 percent have come from my close friends.” “L.
