Here is a sneak preview of Lawpromo.com’s latest Criminal Defense Attorney website design. The client – who’s name we’ll release in a later post – requested a fully customized website that’s SEO-ready. So, we gave it to him!
Since our lawyer deals in Criminal Defense Law, our designer imagined a Dick Wolf TV drama – moody, “dark” and serious. He chose a black, blue and white color palette to pull off this “Law & Order”- style effect. In keeping with current website styles, 80% of the sites content can be found on the front page. The user is presented with an extra-large slider, with a bold headline linking to a list of our lawyer’s list of accomplishments.
Below the page fold is a description of the firm, with visual statistics of the their settlement amounts to-date. As you scroll down, the black background suddenly shifts to white, highlighting the firm’s practice areas, written in a a dark blue serif font. The footer goes back to black, reiterating the firm’s contact information, location, and a nifty little contact form.
As always, we tested the site’s responsive design on different devices including nearly every brand of smart phone, tablet, and web browser. In total there are only seven pages on this website (not including blog entries). We understand many potential clients could be grieving the loss of a loved one, or a business owner under immense legal pressure. The easier we can make it for a distressed client to find the phone number, email or contact form, the better. That’s why contact information is clearly listed in the header and footer. And if a user needs to make a snap-judgement on the lawyer he / she is choosing, it’s all there on the front page.
That’s Justice, Made Easy!
