Best law firm website design
Business in 2022 is different from the business back in the 2000s or even in 2019.
Whether you like it or not, an online presence is a must for every business: small to enterprise.
- When was the last time you reviewed your website?
- Is it well-optimized for mobile devices?
- Does it load in under 3 seconds?
- Is your content SEO optimized and easy to read?
Trust me when I tell you this – heavy in text, old-fashioned, not responsive website comes with a high cost of losing potential clients every day.
The easiest way to evaluate your website is to ask a professional UI/UX designer to perform a design audit.
A design audit is sort of a checkup of your digital brand identity. The designer is analysing all the visual elements of the organisation, as well as the text, core messages and all brand marketing materials.
UX audit is also an important part of the design checkup process. Only a person with valid UI/UX design experience can perform it successfully. The UI/UX designer goes through the website and highlights all the issues users might be facing while navigating through it.
As a result, you get a comprehensive document where all the issues are listed, as well as possible solutions, new ideas and new business opportunities for the website.
☝️ Overall, there are 4 categories to consider when choosing the best website design for attorneys & law firms: speed, user-friendliness, responsiveness & creativity.
1. The website loading speed
⏱️ The BD& law firm - 1,2 sec
The BD&P website is not only visually appealing and modern, but it also showed a record loading speed of 1,2 seconds.
Worth pointing out that the section “A history of success” is also really nice, it showcases their deep experience in the field. A great selling point!
⏱️ The Gottlieblaw firm - 1,5 sec
The Gottlieblaw firm website loads under 1,5 sec making it highly attractive for potential clients.
2. Minimalistic & user-friendly design
Continuing the topic above – the minimalistic websites load faster. Also, they are better at grabbing user attention and as obvious as it may sound – simple design is easier to use.
Never overcomplicate your landing page, with a strategic layout in your design, you can ensure that the visitors make the most of your site.
The clean and straightforward website covers everything the user is looking for from the very beginning.
The services are matched with illustrations. This trick helps you to cut some text and catch user’s attention while they are scrolling the website down.
The DevisPolk team invested in quite unusual yet minimalistic website design. With no pictures used the creators relied on text highlights.
3. Responsiveness of the website
What does it even mean?
Responsive web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should adapt to the user’s needs and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation.
A huge chunk of UI/UX designers’ training and work is to make sure they create a responsive design. I don’t want to go into details but trust me, it takes time to practice this particular skill.
Also, you should keep in mind that nearly 57% of all traffic in the US comes from mobile devices and tablets (BrightEdge, 2017)
