We are really excited to let you know about a project we have been thinking about and working on for a long time.

Today we are launching Lawyerist Sites, a new service to design and host great law firm websites and blogs.

It’s Time You Had a Better Website

If you’ve been paying attention, Sam has been focusing a lot of energy lately on criticizing the current state of a lot of law firm websites and law blogs.

The truth is that a lot of law firm websites and blogs are terrible—either they have bad design, are out of date, or they don’t understand how to write great content for readers.

It’s time to change that.

Lawyerist Sites is a network of websites and blogs for lawyers. We are leveraging our experience designing, developing, and writing Lawyerist to build you beautiful, fast, secure, optimized law firm websites and law blogs.

6 Features of a Great Law Firm Website

We think Lawyerist Sites will be the best value you can find for great website and blog design — though we’re obviously a little biased. Here are 6 reasons why you should launch your site with (or transitioning your existing site to) Lawyerist Sites:

  1. Design
    Your site will be designed by the team that designed Lawyerist.com. We will build a beautiful website or blog, just for you.
  2. Optimization
    Your site will be built on the same platform (WordPress) and using the same tools and plug-ins used to optimize Lawyerist.com.
  3. Content expertise
    We’ve spent the past 5 years figuring out how to write great stuff for the Internet. When you use Lawyerist Sites, we will provide you with our best practices for content development.
  4. Support
    Your site comes with unlimited support to keep your site well-maintained.
  5. Security
    Your site will be actively backed-up and monitored to keep it free of spam and to minimize security risks.
  6. The Lawyerist Network
    As part of our Lawyerist Sites community, we will actively promote your best content on Lawyerist.com. Not only will this build up your site’s profile for things like Search Engine Optimization (SEO), but will also help you build your readership. As the publishers of the leading law practice blog and forum (with over 1.5 million visitors last year), we want to leverage our traffic and profile to help you grow your practice.

If you think it’s a dumb idea to pay anyone to build you a great website, here’s our free do-it-yourself guide to setting yourself up with a WordPress site. But if you would rather pay someone else to make things easy on you, check out Lawyerist Sites.
