BKW website named in Top 10 of 2015 . . .

Posted: February 25th, 2015 by

Not sure who nominated us*, but Thanks! Berner Klaw & Watson LLP was named in the Lawyerist’s Best Law-Firm Websites, 2015 Edition. Thanks are in order as well to our truly outstanding website designer, Beth Blinebury, and her team; photographer extraordinaire and Photoshop magician Laurie Beck; “let’s make something epic” videographer (and super nice guy), Andrew Gormley; and last, but not least, the entire BKW Family. Woo hoo!

*The rules for nomination are pretty simple:

No self-interested nominations. If you design a website, host a website, do SEO for a website, work for the firm the website belongs to, or have any other interest in the website, you cannot nominate that website. If you cannot get one uninterested person to nominate it for you, then it probably isn’t worth nominating. Law firm websites only.

How We Pick the Top 10

While drinking coffee or cocktails, depending on the time of day.

We don’t have any strict criteria for picking the top 10, but at a minimum, websites that make the top 10 will look good on all screens (i.e., be responsive) and have the basics covered. We tend not to like hard-sell websites, overly-busy websites, or websites full of cheesy videos. We tend to like good design, tasteful innovation, and copy that informs and engages.

We also try to keep an eye out for misleading information. You won’t make the top 10 if we catch you calling yourself “experienced” your first year out of law school. We don’t conduct an in-depth inquiry into every site (and we aren’t up on the specific ethics rules of every jurisdiction), but we are on the lookout for misleading information, and we know our readers will take us to task if we miss something.
