What’s on your website?
If current research—and my own informal surfing around—are any indication—the answer may be: Not much that folks care about.
Or, if you don’t have a legal website, let me put it another way: What do you look for in a lawyer’s web presence when, for instance, you’re looking for someone because you have a case to refer?
Are you looking for 10-year-old writing samples from when the lawyer externed for a judge?
Surveys say …. Blecch.
How about 70 photos of gavels, or courthouse steps, or maybe the scales of justice?
Well, OK, but all things in moderation. I saw one law firm site that ran ALL of those on EVERY page and sub-page.
There are a lot of terrific sites out there, but many others are cluttered with who knows what.
And while you’re at it, don’t forget how to choose a good picture of yourself. It matters; it really matters.
What are some stellar lawyer websites you’ve seen? Share the URLs and I may do a future story on one or more.Follow @azatty
