It’s time to start collecting nominations for our annual best law firm website contest! There are thousands of law firm websites out there, which means we need your help to find the cream of the crop. We need you to tell us about the best law firm websites you’ve come across.

How to Nominate a Website

Just enter the URL into the form below. Please don’t repeat nominations. This is a nomination, not a vote. Multiple entries don’t give you a better chance of winning; they give you a better chance of being disqualified for spamming. (Asking everyone you know to nominate your website is a bad idea for this reason.)

Apart from that, the rules for nomination are pretty simple:

  1. No self-interested nominations. If you design a website, host a website, do SEO for a website, work for the firm the website belongs to, or have any other interest in the website, you cannot nominate that website. If you cannot get one uninterested person to nominate it for you, then it probably isn’t worth nominating.
  2. Law firm websites only.

Nominations will will remain open through February 1st.

How We Pick the Top 10

We judge websites based on the criteria outlined in our website design guide. Here are the 10 things the best law firm websites should have:

  1. A well-defined goal.
  2. A clear call to action.
  3. A client-centered value proposition.
  4. Responsive design.
  5. Clean design.
  6. Bold colors and striking images.
  7. Great typography.
  8. Designed for accessibility.
  9. Basic SEO (at least).
  10. A properly configured SSL certificate (HTTPS).

We also keep an eye out for misleading information. You won’t make the top 10 if we catch you calling yourself “experienced” your first year out of law school. We don’t conduct an in-depth inquiry into every site (and we aren’t up on the specific ethics rules of every jurisdiction), but we are on the lookout for misleading information, and we know our readers will take us to task if we miss something.
