Website Design for law firms

Your website is your window to the world and that’s why great website design is essential. When was the last time you looked at your website? Does it look dated? Have you checked it out on a phone or tablet recently? How does it look? How does it compare to other solicitors competing for the same business as you?

Many solicitors view websites as a necessary evil. They skimp on design and “just want something up there” clients can use to find them. If you’re one of those solicitors, we have a message for you. Your website won’t be easily found and, if it is, people won’t spend any time on it! An ugly or outdated website is likely to put prospective clients off rather than encouraging then to engage with you.

Why is your website design important?

It’s very important to make sure your website is presented properly.  That means it should present your services in some sort  of logical manner. Your website is your window to the world so if it looks disorganised, it’s likely clients and prospective clients will think you are disorganised too!

Websites these days need to look good when viewed on a desktop computer. More importantly, they also need to look good on a phone and a tablet. If your website doesn’t people won’t spend any time on it. This means they won’t find out about your firm and its services and go elsewhere to engage someone else.

Here we answer some of your questions

Why would I want a new website?

We hear this all the time. Here are a couple of questions you might want to ask yourself.

Put yourself in your client’s shoes and take a look at your website. What does your website tell your client about you? Now, that’s a client. What about a stranger looking for some of the services you provide? Would they be impressed by your website and be encouraged to get in touch?

Why does my website need to look good on mobile devices?

The really simple answer to that question is that more people will view your website on their phone or a tablet than they ever will on a PC! It’s essential that your website is mobile friendly. If it isn’t, people will just turn off and go visit a competitor’s website. It’s a sure fire way to lose business – even from existing clients!

Why is the structure of my website important

Your website needs to have a consistent appearance. It needs to be attractive whilst containing important and informative articles. It needs to be easily viewed on mobile devices. Importantly, if you want to be found in Google or Bing, you have to register for Search – and if your website structure and content are poor, you simply won’t show up when someone searches for services you provide.
