Building websites and WordPress projects for clients has its privileges. I learn many new lessons on a daily basis. I am able to experiment with many different types of plugins, themes and code. Every project has a different mix of code and technology that we use and as we design, I am always thinking of other ways to utilize the knowledge gained.
While I do enjoy working on client projects, it is always fun to be able to create my own designs without restraints of client business specifications or requirements. I am excited to start on a new project this month and will be focusing a new effort to provide a web application specifically for law firms, attorneys and legal professionals. The first (beta) version of FreshLawyer.com will target startup law firms and even graduating law school students. Shortly thereafter, we will expand our market to include re-designs of existing lawyer websites and small firms. Finally, FreshLawyer.com will also cater to the larger and growing law firms, to offer a platform that can be easy to use for a sole practitioner as well as a global firm with hundreds of attorneys and thousands of employees. It will be a custom website builder, powered by WordPress specifically for the legal industry.
Our mission is clear and our documentation is in process. Proper documentation is key to any successful web project. We started on the logo a few weeks ago and finalized it last week. The primary marketing website is in process and we should have more than just a landing page setup within the next two weeks.
Our new project for lawyer websites will begin development in the next few weeks and the first phase will be completed by the end of July. I am looking forward to helping promote the small law firms and start-up attorneys that need a simple, quick and affordable solution without having to compromise on quality.
I have several other internal projects that are in the works as well. Some that I am very excited to write about, but that will be for another day. In the meantime, it’s back to client work.
