A well-designed website is an important component in any law firm’s marketing strategy. Not only does it provide a platform for law firms to establish credibility and gain trust from a prospective client, but it also serves as the first point of contact for many people seeking legal services. While website development can take between two to five months to complete from scratch, there’s an easier way for lawyers to create a high-functioning site in a fraction of the time.  

PracticePanther is excited to announce our new integration with Legalfit — the premier web marketing platform tailored specifically for law firms. This integration enables PracticePanther customers to easily create custom websites with forms that automatically sync into PracticePanther as Contacts, allowing for deeper and more detailed reporting and analytics.

Why Law Firms Need A Well-Designed Website

According to the National Law Review, 96% of people seeking legal advice use a search engine to find answers and 74% of consumers make their first interaction through the law firm’s website. Lastly, 87% of people who contact an attorney go on to hire an attorney, additionally, 72% of them only contact one attorney. 

This is why it’s vital for your firm to have a well-designed and optimized website, so you’re the first and only place a prospect lands. If your website is not properly formatted, those prospects will likely head somewhere else.
