There was no such thing as a law firm website back in 1903, when Neale & Newman, L.L.P. of Springfield, Missouri was originally founded. Indeed, lawyers weren't even allowed to market their services the way most businesses could back then; the U.S. Supreme Court had yet to eschew the traditional prohibition on marketing by attorneys in Bates v. State Bar of Arizona, 433 U.S. 350 (1977).
The firm's new website, launched in 2019, is as current as they come. But it still offers several nods to the firm's long history. In particular, a page on the firm's background offers glimpses into the past — when many lawyers “read law” in a lawyer’s office rather than attend law school and were licensed on the approval of local lawyers instead of taking a written bar examination.
The basic design and color scheme of the site, too, conjure the kind of established solidity expected of a 115-year-old law firm. But the site also shows that the firm has not been afraid to step into the 21st century. A tasteful rotating banner spot on the home page highlights this general practice firm's three flagship areas of practice: Missouri estate planning, business law, and litigation. Great new attorney profiles offer photos and background on each practitioner in an easy-to-read layout. In addition to their downloadable vCards, each attorney can also be directly dialed or emailed with one click from their profiles.
