Walner Law has been representing the people of Chicago since 1973, but that legacy needed a refresh. With a new Chicago-inspired logo, powerful video production, and enhanced processes across the board, we took Walner Law into the future, creating brand recognition in an ultra-competitive market and consistently generating new qualified leads for the firm.

THE SOLUTION

Fortress built out the Underrated Tour web platform that allowed aspiring athletes across the country to learn more about the tour and apply for their respective cities. For the selected players, a private portal was created where players could access customized media, their highlights, and a college guidebook.

We have consistently done shoots all over Chicago to build up Walner Law’s library of videos for their website, YouTube channel, and podcast “Words With Walner,” recorded monthly in our Fortress studios.

BILLBOARDS & OUTDOOR MARKETING

In the fiercely competitive Chicago legal landscape, law firms must capture their target audience’s attention. We crafted billboards for Walner that are strategically designed and placed to swiftly link injured people to Walner’s exceptional representation.
