|About Adoption Attorney Scott Briscoe...
Scott Briscoe is a lifelong resident of Boone County, WV except for when he was burning couches on High Street during his college days as a proud West Virginia Mountaineer.
After graduating from law school, Scott returned home to southern West Virginia where he simultaneously owned and operated the local Dairy Queen ice cream shop and practiced law for over two decades as a public defender in his hometown of Danville, West Virginia. Among his many notable clients were several members of the “Wild, Wonderful Whites of West Virginia” made popular in the Johnny Knoxville documentary of the same name. He also taught criminology, criminal procedure, and business law at Southern West Virginia Community College for a few years, after law school.
Scott is the author of “101 Free Legal Tips” (Headline Books), based on his widely popular social media posts about the many actual bizarre things he witnessed while in the courtroom that were so amazing, most people thought that he made them up. Sadly, he didn’t, so that garnered Scott a worldwide following including coverage in Reader’s Digest, BoredPanda.com, and as a guest on a slew of pithy podcasts. The other sites, he went viral on include The Huffington Post, The UK Daily Mail, and Star Trek celebrity George Takei’s website.
Scott is regarded throughout the legal community for his affinity for helping kids in trouble as their court-appointed ‘guardian ad-litem’. He’s been known to visit them in children’s centers and juvenile facilities at all hours, often bearing gifts he purchased himself on his public defender’s salary. His work as a public defender and guardian ad litem have been featured on the NBC Nightly News and the Washington Post. He achieved his lifetime goal of concentrating solely on practicing adoption law to help unite children with their forever families when Scott joined the team at Robert Noone Adoptions in Spring 2022.
