Welcome to the web site of the LMA Northwest Chapter.
Founded in 2002 as LMA Seattle, our chapter's objectives include advancing the standards of professionalism among legal marketers as well as increasing their visibility and respectability throughout the legal profession. We welcome in-house legal marketers and encourage active involvement from attorneys, legal administrators, recruiting personnel, law students, professional services consultants, and media representatives.
As we continue to strengthen our chapter, we invite you to join our chapter and become involved.

New LMA Northwest Blog
LMA Northwest is launching our newest approach to keeping you well informed, our Chapter Blog. The blog will allow us to quickly communicate updates to you, provide links to Chapter officers, allow you to comment and provide feedback, and become a forum for the exchange of ideas. Blogging is nothing new, of course, but we hope with our Chapter Blog that we will bring you even more value for your membership.

Law firms are awash in data: financial, matters, contacts, research, and activities. But, what value can legal marketers get from them? How do we connect the business development dots from an initial contact with a prospect through file opening and back again?
