Law Firm Web Site Online in 60 Days!

Millerlawlogo_2 At many law firms, getting a Web site online takes many months and is a process involving committees, multiple levels of approval, re-designs and rewriting.  But the Chicago litigation boutique Miller Law LLC got their site online in only 60 days, proving it can be done. 

The site lists industry experience, many case histories, and biographies that disccuss results. It's everything a referral source needs to know.

Here is the chronology:

January 20, 2007: First Step Internet, a Web site developer for law firms, creates two home page mockups based on Web site usability and marketing principles. We notify the managing partner to take a first look.

February 13: The developer incorporates revisions from the managing partner into the mockup.

February 16: The managing partner and I meet to discuss additional changes and features in the site.

March 2: We begin putting content on the draft site, based on biographies, firm resume and case histories supplied by the law firm.

March 8: Add new text and photos to the draft site.

March 12: Revise text and check the site for compliance with ethics rules.

March 13: Hold a conference call with the managing partner, and we make numerous revisions.

March 19: Correct typos and formatting.

March 20, 4:45 PM Central Time -- the site goes live.  See

Congratulations to Bodine, First Step Internet and Miller Law LLC.

Nice, clean site. Deft execution.

To any late adopters without a Web site or custom E-mail:

This is 2007, not 1997. Having a Web site with custom E-mail has become a business norm.

For less than $10 per month you can have a domain with custom E-mail and at least a one page site with your firm's name and contact information.

Nothing says, "I'm greasy, unsuccessful and work out of a bungalow" quite like a free E-mail account (i.e.,"*", "*", "*", "*", etc.).

Take pride in your practice and get it squared away.
