Harlan Schillinger has four decades of experience in legal advertising with a passion for legal marketing, intake, and conversion.
Harlan has worked with more than 120 law firms in over 98 markets throughout North America. Currently, he is consulting privately only with lawyers who share his vision of increasing business, being accountable and obtaining high-value cases. He takes, perhaps, the most unique and accountable approach to Intake and conversion and insists on complete accountability within that arena.
Currently, Harlan is working with and in charge of business development at Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys. With offices nationally, Glen has one of the largest and most successful plaintiff’s practices in America. The firm already takes on well over 1,600 cases a month, and Harlan is positioning the firm for even more growth.
In April 2016 Harlan retired from Network Affiliates of Lakewood, Colorado, the nation’s first and largest Legal advertising agency, where he was the leader of their attorney marketing efforts for over 33 years. Prior to joining Network Affiliates in 1985, Harlan was Vice President and one of the founding partners of Madison, Muyskens & Jones advertising agency in Lakeville, Connecticut. In 1975, along with his partners, Harlan founded the first syndication TV production firm for retailers and Lawyers, creating television commercials that aired throughout the United States and Canada. Since 1979, Harlan has worked aggressively, productively and professionally within the Legal advertising space.
When asked about his approach to legal marketing and client relationships, Harlan says, “Creating opportunities and increasing market share for advertising law firms is my #1 priority. The value of the case is everything in such a crowded market.”
Harlan is an intricate part of the National Trial Lawyers Executive Summit committee as well as a senior editor for the National Trial Lawyers Magazine.
