“You never get a second chance to make a first impression,” goes the old saying, and it’s true. But many solo attorneys are so busy doing legal work that they just don’t have time to attend to the impression that their firm website makes.
Attorney Sean Blume of Blune Law Group knows a little something about that. The Sterling Heights, Michigan attorney had his hands full with his busy family law and estate planning and probate practice. His website needed an updated look and content, but his clients’ needs came first. Sean eventually realized that by creating a website that was inviting to readers and better reflected his practice, he could serve clients even more effectively. The Modern Firm was happy to help.
The Modern Firm’s design team created a welcoming, expansive website featuring a breathtaking banner photo of the Detroit skyline. The first impression of this new site is both modern and warm, drawing potential clients in to learn more about the practice.
Sean put a lot of thought into exactly what that “more” should be. He understood that clients were trusting him with some of the most personal aspects of their lives. He wanted to help them understand not only the legal process they would be going through, but why he is the person prospective clients should choose to be their advocate and guide.
Sean worked closely with The Modern Firm’s attorney writers to create content that was engaging, practical, and that offered readers an insight into who Sean is and how he practices. We have found that the ability to “get to know” a lawyer through their website often makes people seeking help with a personal legal matter like a divorce or custody case more confident about contacting the attorney. Pictures of the attorney, like the ones of Sean sprinkled throughout the site, tend to enhance that confidence.
Blume Law Group’s new website may mean that Sean is now busier than ever. But now he knows that the many clients seeking him out have a good (and accurate) first impression of his practice.
Based in Sterling Heights, Michigan, Blume Law Group serves clients throughout Southeast Michigan, including Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne Counties.
Is your law firm website making the right first impression? You may never know who’s not calling because it isn’t. Let’s fix that together.
