Designing Websites for Lawyers and Attorneys

Law firms and attorneys need a website designed for their legal practices that will enable them to communicate their value propositions to prospective and current clients. Law firms, as services businesses, now have to promote their brands online and set their firms apart from other attorneys that seemingly offer similar legal services.

The content of your website often addresses two different audiences. The first and more obvious audience is the current or prospective client. Yet, the second audience is often a referral source like another attorney who is visiting your site to learn more about your firm so he or she can make a good referral. Therefore, your communication strategy should ensure that you connect with both intended audiences.

Designing a site for an attorney that likely specializes in an area of law presents a different set of challenges than simply designing a standard eStore for an online retailer or a B2B manufacturer’s site.

Here are examples of law firm and other professional services firm web sites.

The people at LA Dezign were absolutely diligent in their efforts to make our new website the best it could be. The entire crew was stellar but special commendation goes to Anne Nauber who worked with us closely and handled every one of the project’s twists and turns with calm professionalism. We couldn’t be happier with their work or with our new site - especially because, within a week of launch, it played a key role in landing us a new client.
