The Law Office of Eric K. Schillinger
Establishing a Foothold as Albany’s Premier Criminal Defense Practice
Facing Tough Odds
Attorney Eric K. Schillinger graduated at the top of his class from Albany Law School at the height of the 2009 recession—not the best time to try to get a job as an attorney. But Eric wasn’t discouraged. He pressed forward, passed the bar, and started working on a 1099 for a local firm, assisting a partner on the cusp of retirement. There Eric stayed until late 2018, when he opened his own law office in downtown Albany.
“When I made the decision to get out of there and really get out on my own—you know, open my own office, and all that—I knew it was the right thing to do, but it was still nerve-wracking,” said Eric. He also decided to partner with Scorpion for all his digital marketing needs.
The Keys to Success
Starting an independent criminal defense practice would not be easy, but our team at Scorpion was ready to position Eric for success. We worked to build a professional, results-focused website and strong online presence that would give him a strong foothold and reputation as a premier trial lawyer in the Albany area. Eric saw results fast. “Every time I talk to you guys, things seem to get better. It’s been a helluva ride.”
A Partnership Built on Trust & Results
Since partnering with Scorpion, the Law Office of Eric K. Schillinger has seen more calls, more cases, and a five-to-one return on investment. The firm’s website is ranking on Google and other key search engines. Eric is perceived as a top criminal defense lawyer with 94% positive reviews on Yelp, Google My Business, and other platforms. He has a partner he can trust to deliver expert marketing guidance and the level of support that will always put his practice’s success first.
“What can I say other than, ‘Scorpion delivers A+ results’? I mean, you guys have been incredible. I’m getting higher-quality clients, and January was the biggest month in the history of my firm. It’s been crazy in the best way possible."
