Family Health Law does an excellent job showcasing how to create a robust and dynamic website. Lisa’s photo and vision are front and center with a clear CTA as soon as the homepage loads. Through a few scrolls, you can easily see Lisa’s services, intended clients, and career journey.
Our favorite part is how she positions herself as an expert in her practice area. Through testimonials, key differentiators of her practice, and blog posts, she automatically creates authority.

Charthouse Lawyers immediately captures your attention with their colorfully well-designed website. The geometric color overlay, high-quality images, and sleek design catch your eye and lures you in to keep scrolling.
Within a few seconds of being on their page, their values are showcased and it’s easy to see their practice areas. We often see many websites try to pack as much info as they can on the home page, but Charthouse does the opposite. They honed in on exactly what they wanted to offer and let their value and services speak for themselves. Because of this, everything they offer on their site is accessible with a few scrolls.
PortaLaw stands out for its minimalist design. The sleek branding of the site showcases bold text, muted colors, and simple graphics, but manages to still draw the eye. The subtle design does a great job of not distracting from what they do, who they help, and ultimately, how they can help you.
Because of this, their site is easy to navigate. Images of the two attorneys are sprinkled throughout their other pages. These images are professional but also showcase the attorneys in a casual and accessible light. It makes them feel like real people you’d like to work with, which is always a plus when looking choosing between firms.
Their “News” banner on the front page draws the eye, and clicking leads to a blog that is frequently updated.
Bertram is clever with showing their motto through the image of a yellow bird outside of a cage right as you enter their homepage. It is not only a fun conversation starter but an image that can be easily remembered. Their playful and fun colors also contribute to their overall vision and motto of being a different kind of law firm.
A huge win for Bertram is their use of ALT tags. While there are many ways to make your website accessible, ALT tags are one of the easiest ways to automatically up your accessibility & SEO game. Ironically enough, many websites fail to do this simple step, so we give Bertram extra points for this!

Aftermarket does a great job in staying active & in front of their potential clients. Their frequent social media posts, free resources on their site, and continuously updated blog posts display that they are serious about being subject matter experts in their field.
This website for solo practitioner Tycha Kimbrough is a terrific example of how to brand yourself through clean design and good content marketing. Through Tycha’s high-quality images and background, it’s easy to get a sense of what it would be like to work with her. Highlighting the attributes of one individual is key for a solo attorney and this site makes Kimbrough seem approachable while emphasizing her background and expertise.
Besides her free downloadable resources and blog posts, our favorite feature is her monthly FAQ video. They are quick videos focused on answering highly asked questions, which is a great way to further provide authority in her practice area.
Haugen Law Group’s website is exactly what we look for in a well-designed site. High-quality photos, sleek design, and clear CTA are just a few reasons why this site stands out.

The low scroll time & easy navigation help give those visiting the website a clear picture of who they are and what they are about.
