Home / Lawyer Website Design
The first interaction a potential client will have with your law firm will likely be your website. So their first impression must be positive. At Dan Gilroy Design, we’ve produced hundreds of unique, visually stunning lawyer website designs that do just that – impress, inform, and convert potential clients into positive relationships. Our law firm website projects tend to fall into the following categories:
In our experience, the attorneys and law firms that come to us to design their websites are doing so for one or more of the following reasons: (1) attorneys know that in this day and age, consumers turn to the web to either search for a lawyer or check out the website of a specific lawyer they heard about; (2) attorneys need a website that makes their law firm or law practice look good; (3) they need a website that is informative and convinces the user to pick up the phone and call them or fill out a contact form; and (4) they need a website that serves as a lead generation tool.
Some attorneys or law firms have never had a website before, while some are established law firms but need a website redesign to bring their online presence inline with the value of their law practice. In each case, every client wants a website design that will reflect their law firm in a positive light.
Whether you’re a seasoned trial lawyer starting a new law firm or a new lawyer hanging your shingle for the first time, you’ll need a law firm website design. With any new venture, planning is essential. Through our discovery process, we’ll help you target your goals for the website, help identify your target audience, and zero-in on the image you want to present to your website visitors. If you need some law firm website design inspiration we can help you out there. We’ll elicit your input on design considerations such as layout, color scheme, photography, and use of images. We’ll guide you on best practices in design, content creation, search engine optimization (SEO), and website management. In short, we’ll be there for you at each step.
SUMMARY: All websites require careful planning and the first time you go through this process can be an educational experience. We will guide you step-by-step through the process, offer sound and sage advice, and make the website creation experience a positive one.
Many of our clients already have a website but are unsatisfied with it. Perhaps it’s an old, outdated design; maybe it’s not mobile-friendly, or maybe you’ve reached the end of a contract with a law firm marketing provider and want to go with a new law firm website design company. In these cases, you may already know what you want your website to look like, what content it should include, who your target market is, and so on. You understand, though, that the look and feel of the website itself are all wrong. That’s when a website redesign is in order.
There are several benefits to redesigning your website. Design trends change, and so do the expectations from your audience as to how your website should look and perform. A modern website design translates into greater trust from website visitors and search engines. It offers you the opportunity to convert to mobile compatibility if you haven’t already, refresh your logo and brand, and focus on creating new, engaging content.
SUMMARY: There are several benefits to redesigning your website and the process of building the new website is often less onerous than building a website for the first time.
From a user experience alone, your website should be mobile-friendly. Mobile devices generate approximately half of all web traffic today. It’s the same story year after year, and we expect the trend to continue through 2022 and beyond. By then, mobile devices will probably have surpassed desktops and laptops as the main source of web traffic. That continues the exponential trend upwards in mobile device use as a percentage of all Internet traffic. Moreover, more searches are now conducted on mobile devices than they are from desktop computers. If that’s not enough, optimizing your website for mobile compatibility represents a competitive advantage, as Google provides mobile friendly websites with preferential treatment in search engine results. In short, if you don’t have a mobile compatible website by now, you risk losing website traffic and credibility. At Dan Gilroy Design, we build our lawyer websites on a responsive, fluid grid to provide website visitors with an optimal mobile experience.
SUMMARY: To remain relevant and competitive, your website must be mobile-friendly. If it isn’t, call us today to chat. All our websites are mobile-friendly.
We design our websites with lawyer SEO in mind. We take care to do those things that, as designers and developers, we have immediate control over to positively impact your website’s organic search engine rankings. But search engine optimization (SEO) is a vast field encompassing many disciplines and relates to both on-page and off-page influences. Accordingly, at Dan Gilroy Design, we consider building a holistic web presence rather than mere organic SEO – as SEO is limiting. Other factors, such as local search, pay-per-click (PPC), and social media, also impact your overall web presence, and thus, your ability to be found. Talk to us today about how we can help you build your website presence.
SUMMARY: Building a web presence is more than just SEO. Local search, pay-per-click, and social media can all play a significant role in establishing a strong website presence on the Internet.
