TikTok is an addictive app which is generally used two ways. Most people load the app onto their phone and watch silly videos. The second way the app is used is by the people making the videos. People can create short videos, lasting about 10 seconds. While the app is mostly used by teenagers, there are some people, such as the lawyers below, who create unique content which is generally received very well by the TikTok audience.
In 2019 there were about 3 attorneys creating content on TikTok, and as of 2020 there are dozens, however, there are indeed a few which stand out.
Anthony Barbuto (The Lawyer):
Anthony Barbuto is a funny, entertaining lawyer and … rapper? As of February 2020, Anthony has 1.9 million followers on this channel. On his Tik Tok videos, he can be seen dancing, singing, laughing and being hilarious. Anthony was one of the first lawyers to hop on Tik Tok and shake what his momma gave him. He is also a content creator elsewhere online and is active on Instagram, on his blog, The Italian Enthusiast, and, yes, he is a real lawyer at Barbuto & Johansson.
Don’t miss his YouTube channel, either, where he has produced “The Lawyer Anthem”.
Brad Shear, Esq.:
Tik Tok: @BradShear
I love Brad’s use of Tik Tok as he provides legal information to younger users, which is obviously who spends the most time on Tik Tok. In other words, he’s creating content for the audience of Tik Tok. One of his videos answers the question “Can you go to jail for farting on someone?” Surprisingly, the answer is yes, at least in Texas. He also answers questions about schools searching backpacks and cell phones and provides some really great information. Kids love it, and most of his simple little videos go viral and have millions of views. Check him out on YouTube, too.
