About Harlan Legal, PC

Harlan Legal was started in 2023 as the evolution in the legal careers of spouses R. Scott Harlan, Esq. and Tiffany W. Harlan, Esq. Scott and Tiffany met in law school, navigated their early legal careers together, learning from multiple law firms and law practices, and finally combined their vision for their legal practice with the joint focus and goal of a true client-first litigation law firm. Their primary focus is solving complex legal problems and resolving legal disputes for their clients as a team, with efficient common sense representation, from consultation to conclusion, in mediations, arbitrations, bench and jury trials, throughout all of California, in Federal Courts, and internationally.

He obtained his Bachelor of Science in Political Science with a minor in Civic Leadership from Indiana State University, where he was a student-athlete on the NCAA Division-I baseball team. Scott is a relative of two Associate Justices of the United States Supreme Court, including Justice John Marshall Harlan, widely known as the "Great Dissenter."
