The first time many of your clients will see your law firm will be through your website. A good legal website:
Builds trust in the credibility and professionalism of your practice
Differentiates your firm from the competition
Drives in new leads, resulting in new business
Describes your capabilities and represents your law practice
Complies with the New York Rules of Professional Conduct
Over the course of the program,, five experts from some of New York’s best in web design, content creation, SEO, photography, and legal ethicists, will share their insight on building a better digital presence that is differentiated, creative, and ethical. They will cite website examples and give insider tips on what it takes to create a strong digital presence in 2017. You’ll also learn how your website can constitute “advertising” and “solicitation”; how to safely describe your services and representative matters; and what disclaimers and recordkeeping you need to comply with the evolving attorney disciplinary rules.
