Law firm websites play an important role in your company’s credibility. Your website is a symbol of your firm’s mission and values, and these influence every element that visitors view and interact with. An effective website provides answers for people in a crisis: many legal matters can cause complex emotions, and clients need an empathetic attorney who is capable of supporting their individual legal goals.
Here at NUVEW Web Solutions, our team strives to convey each attorney’s unique approach to their work in every website we create. Below, we explore a few of our best designs and what makes them effective. If you’re ready to start your website design project, call our team to make your vision a reality!
Clients facing legal matters tend to be stressed, and the last thing they need is to feel overwhelmed with information. When designing a website, less is often more, since having too much going on visually and information-wise can be off-putting. Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC is an example of a pleasant design that avoids confusing the viewer. Information is steadily introduced and accompanied by friendly images of the attorneys to produce a cohesive, satisfactory experience.
In order for their website to be successful, attorneys often choose to highlight their experience and awards as leverage, and Minnis & Smallets shows how this can be done in a subtle yet powerful way. Their website is modern with sophisticated design elements. Whether a visitor is on the homepage or navigating the legal information, everything is presented in a clean, easy-to-read layout that’s welcoming and supports effortless navigation.
A legal website’s style needs to be effective at targeting people facing very different legal matters while maintaining consistent branding and tone. Miranda, Magden & Miranda, LLP accomplishes this by grounding the client in the website’s experience. Multiple pages contain interactive elements that involve various legal matters, from family law to immigration. The tagline directly addresses the visitor, which immediately engages them no matter what they are searching for.
Vestal Immigration Law demonstrates the power of a professional, clean website. The website’s overall aesthetic provides comfort for those in a difficult situation, showing that the attorney is approachable and understanding. Visitors can view the site and see their own values reflected in the elements, and that relatability increases the connection between client and attorney.
Bryan Schwartz Law shows that design elements don’t have to be overdone to be effective. The header is a bold photo of the lead attorney, a creative angle of his reflection. The pose is bold, confident and eye-catching, and the visitor instantly knows that this law firm is determined to win. The color scheme plays off of a monochrome, black and white theme with splashes of teal that pops when certain interactive elements are highlighted or clicked on. This provides a memorable experience and lures in visitors.
Many attorneys are tasked with turning intricate information into layman’s terms, and your website is an excellent opportunity to do that. Bartolic Law is one such example. Complex information is presented in digestible amounts to increase reader comprehension. The homepage and inner page designs include informative videos to enhance the client’s experience. The short video loop in the header features an iconic Chicago landmark to appeal to a local client base. The header’s video element instantly attracts attention and is paired with a confident, reassuring tagline.
