The Best Attorney Website Designs

best attorney website designs

If you’re anything like us, you cannot get enough of beautiful and effective web design. We love learning from our peers and can’t wait to share our top ten picks for the best attorney websites.

Our rating system goes something like this:

We score a website based on usability, content, design, and creativity between 1 and 5. So in total, a website can score a 20.

Of course, we touch on SEO (it’s our specialty, after all), but that score does not affect a site’s spot on our list. Instead, we used MozBar for a quick assessment of Page Authority (PA) and Domain Rank (DR). As much as we would have loved to do a technical audit of each site, we have our clients to tend to!

So, out of many, many lawyer websites, here, in our opinion, are the best:

10. Conroy Simberg

See the site.

Score: 12/20

best law firm websites

Usability best attorney websites

The menu is comprehensive, but it isn’t overwhelming. Unfortunately, the on-page navigation on the practice area and industry pages is unclear.

Content best attorney websites

No blog, and the practice area pages fail to provide valuable content to users.

Does anyone else find yellow and black hard to pull off? Conroy and Simberg did it!

But to me, the font in all caps on the accordion drop-downs looks a little rudimentary.

Creativity best attorney websites

The banner text is resting on a horizontal line, which is cool.

SEO

For having only one attorney, Conroy Simberg has a fairly decent Page Authority of 21.

9. Lipsky Lowe

See the site.

Score: 12/20

attorney websites

Usability 

There is a little too much unstructured text on the homepage for my taste.

Content 

Lipsky Lowe has case results linked to the main menu and a blog, which is great. But, I still think there are too many chunky paragraph blocks.

Design 

I love the graphic elements – these aren’t common on law firm websites. And although L&L chose great stock images, there are no pictures of the attorneys on the home page. Attorney pictures are crucial for building rapport with users!

Creativity 

Again, love the graphic banner – it is unique and interacts with the text in an interesting and effective way. Love the logo, too, but the graphics are the only out-of-the-box element on the site.

SEO

Same PA as Conroy Simberg. That’s alright for one attorney, but there is certainly room for improvement.

8. Dinsmore

See the site.

Score: 14/20

best lawyer websites

Usability 

Goodman leverages legible and simple information grids and boxes. The initial menu is limited; I’m not sure if their 3 selections are the best (Attorneys, Experience, Services)

best legal websites

Content 

What does “Experience” mean? I doubt users would understand quickly enough to stay on the page. But, each practice area has a subdirectory: overview, people, news, and experience. Love this! But, no blog.

Design 

The smart simplicity of the template has the ability to tame many colors, but the homepage images are grainy.

Creativity 

There is engaging animation on the banner images, and the template is a fresh take on law firm web design.

SEO

Dinsmore has 637 attorneys, so a Domain Rank (DR) of 45 is to be expected. But why isn’t there an H1?

7. Affleck & Barrison LLP

See the site.

Score: 15/20

top law firm websites

Usability 

The design elements are simple and bold. Iconography is used really well here – it makes the homepage easy to navigate. Sections are clear, and the menu is clean and simple.

Content 

Unfortunately, the practice area pages are pretty thin. Affleck & Barrison does have a blog, but the page has a feed of full articles instead of a directory, which forces users to read through loads of content.

Design 

Again, iconography is on point. Loving the logo, and the use of black and white is tasteful and effective.

Creativity 

The menu cuts off on the right. Even if it is intentional, it looks unfinished. But, I love the stylized social icons.

For 3 lawyers, I would hope to see a slight boost in PA (21). There is definitely room for optimization in the H1, as well.

6. Cheshire Law Group

See the site.

Score: 15/20

award winning law firm websites

Usability 

The home page text is concise, and the use of iconography is really nice here.

Content 

No blog, and some pages have only 1 paragraph.

Design

The interface is easy to engage with, the color scheme is great, and I am loving the logo.

Creativity 

On the banner text, the shadowing makes the page active and engaging. Interestingly, the drop-downs under the menu elements fall horizontally. The text is a little cramped, but I’m still a fan. Animation on the homepage also helps with engagement.

SEO

With a PA of 26 and DA of 17, these two attorneys are fairing pretty well. Boosting content by starting a blog would help raise their lower DA.

5. C.A. Goldberg

See the site.

Score: 16/20

best small law firm websites

Usability 

The all caps text in lightweight font is occasionally illegible. But, the content and menu are concise.

Content 

C.A. Goldberg is clearly marketing focused. 3 of their 8 employees are in communications or client relations – and you can tell. C.A. has a blog, emotional and effective CTAs everywhere (but not in an annoying way), rich and interactive practice area pages, and lots of resources.

award winning legal websites

Design 

On the site, the images and graphics tend towards low quality, and the margins are large – the experience feels a little claustrophobic. Otherwise, I love the palette and graphic elements, and the use of white space in between elements really works.

Although I love the color scheme, I am worried that the pink excludes some users.

top lawyer websites

Creativity 

C.A. Goldberg has such unique branding. It is complex, and it lends itself well to the content-heavy website.

SEO

PA, at 39, is high for only 7 attorneys. That’s where content marketing will get you!

4. GJEL Accident Attorneys

See the site.

Score: 16/20

Usability 

Full disclosure: we made this, and we love it (so does our client). A black and white menu and subtle contact forms consistently sprinkled throughout the site help users, but the font-weight might be too light for some readers.

Content 

GJEL has a robust blog, and on the homepage, there are case results, trust signals, and ratings. Most users glance at a homepage for a few seconds before bouncing back to the SERP, so it’s important to build your reputation immediately. In most cases, the homepage is your only chance.

Design: 

Lawyerist.com thought it was 1 of the top 10 best lawyer websites of 2017.

Creativity 

We’ll be honest: we didn’t push the envelope with this one.

SEO

Humble brag: GJEL has the second highest Page Authority (47) on the list with only 6 attorneys (#1 has over 700 attorneys).

3. Acapo

See the site.

Score: 17/20

best attorney websites acapo

Usability 

Active, exciting, legible, clean, and concise text and design on the homepage.

Content 

No blog! But Acapo makes up for it (a bit) in their practice area pages.

Design 

I’ll be honest: I’m obsessed. The logo is powerful, the color scheme is pleasing and modern, and they clearly have custom-made icons and vectors.

Creativity 

This website is markedly different from anything I encountered. It doesn’t read “lawyer,” which some users might find refreshing.

SEO

24 attorneys, and a DA of only 24.

2. Workplace Rights Law Group

See the site.

Score: 18/20

best attorney websites workplace rights screenshot

Usability 

We are really proud of this site. The homepage uses a smart grid format that distinguishes information using authentic, high-quality photos of the lawyers. However, I wish that the FAQs were accordion style. Currently, the FAQ takes you to another page of the website, which disrupts the user experience on the homepage. Also, the font is a little small.

best attorney websites workplace rights screenshotContent 

On the homepage, the attorneys have FAQs, case results, methods of contact, practice areas, and attorney bios. The best part? Because of the design, I didn’t feel overwhelmed by the content.

The blog is great, and the categories make navigating articles easy. But, the practice areas are a little thin.

Design 

This template is modern yet timeless. I love the fine, orange lines used throughout the site – it’s great for branding and grounds the user.

Creativity 

There is some really unique and engaging animation on the site, particularly, on the “see all case types” CTA at the bottom of the homepage and the “why us?” section below the banner. The site is deceivingly simple, but the deft touches in animation and detail make this a winner in my book.

SEO

PA and DA are a little lower than we would have hoped (working on it… they never said SEO was easy) – but targeting a major metropolitan area like Los Angeles isn’t easy.

1. Best Attorney Website: Fasken

See the site.

Score: 19/20

best attorney website fasken screenshot

Usability 

The design elements are so well distinguished that navigating the site is a breeze. My only complaint is that the blog is called “knowledge” and the case results/practice areas section is called “solutions.” Why? I understand the creative intention behind it, but I doubt this would quickly click with users (it didn’t with me, anyway).

Content 

Fantastic blog. It is easy to choose a topic, thumbnails are great, and the posts are well displayed.

The practice areas are also rich in content.

best attorney websites fasken screenshot

Design 

LOVE the color scheme: the beige and orange combination is original and the contrast is perfect. Great stock images, typography, and impressive, simple, and legible stats.

Creativity 

The use of the orange triangle graphic element throughout the site is really smart. Harnessing pictures from all over the world in a cohesive way without relying on black and white is a huge accomplishment.

SEO

Fasken has over 700 lawyers, which lands them with a DA of 52. But, the PA for their homepage is only 39? Some work could be done there.

So, what do you think?
