Free: 10 Things the Best Law-Firm Website Designs Have in Common
For seven years, Lawyerist has published an annual list of the best law firm websites. Now, you can find out what they have in common.
Every year, we ask our readers to help us find the best law firm websites, then pick the top ten. Check out the current law firm websites contest!
This year’s post about best law firm websites is a little different than the past. In 2010 and 2011, I provided links of sites that I found to be the best representation of great website design in order to provide inspiration for firms that were looking to develop or redesign their websites. I based my choices on my own professional design judgement with a few criteria that I explained.
This year, nominations took place here on Lawyerist.
The collection below is different because it represents a selection of the best sites that were nominated here on Lawyerist. So while the sites in the past were researched and sometimes supported with other awards, these sites were often self-nominated. After leaving the post open for a while, Sam and I collected all of the nominees and sorted through to identify the best candidates. My criteria for the best websites included unique and memorable design and great content, with a bonus for interesting navigation strategies. Sam was looking for clear navigation paths and calls to action, together with great design.
