To aptly build and integrate systems, one must be acutely aware of the total intention of the proposed solution, the knowledge to intelligently create it, and the environment for which it is to live and support your objectives.

Utilizing a collaborative design approach in order to brand your vision correctly and to attract the clientele you are targeting, we create a website design development lifecycle for your law firm based on project management principles comprised of defined, repeatable processes so that all tasks can be consistently tracked, completed on time, and remain within budget. Basically, to give you what you asked for! We have 5 phases in our website design process that ensures everyone retains the same vision throughout the project and the integrity of the scope is maintained. Each step requires approval from you in order to proceed to the next step.
Website Design Process
Define – We have a detailed consultation where we capture your vision, brand, target clients, practice area, competition, and the look and feel you are after and ensure it creates a holistic synergy with your entire marketing campaign. We will also establish a list of functional requirements you may want include in the design.
Design – Utilizing information received in the Definition phase, we build several website designs for you to approve. This design can match your current marketing efforts or be a complete redesign for a new approach. Each will contain user-friendly layouts, easy navigation, clean design, a clear and focused message that communicates your law firm’s strengths, obvious calls to action, and be optimized for mobile viewing. Our design process ensures your website is consistent with your marketing objectives and goals.
Develop – Upon approval of the design, we build a responsive website that will optimize the display of your website across multiple devices, incorporate functional requirements and relevant, compelling, keyword-rich content, integrate on-page SEO elements, and present it to you for approval.
Deploy – after Development is approved, we go live with your website, set up statistical tracking and analysis, and continue SEO activities.
Maintain – this last stage is monitoring the website to ensure it is optimally functioning and doing its job – getting you clients! We continue to perform requisite SEO tasks and monitor performance to see where we can improve or “tweak” performance for better results.
Don’t worry! If you have a great idea after we launch, we can always add to or update your website. ALL OF US have had great ideas after a project is completed. It’s very common in our line of work and we look at it more as growth than changes. We’re very understanding and easy to work with. Most important is your satisfaction.
