Beautiful, Functional, Mobile Friendly Law Firm Web Design that Convert Prospects into Clients
FIRST: Let’s make one clear distinction… There’s a BIG difference between “Buying a Website” and “Buying a Website that will Grow Your Practice.”
Nobody can match our service because nobody understands the legal market like we do. From years of research and experience, there are literally 100s of factors that determine whether you dominate your market like a shark or get lost in the sea of oblivion. We know how to win online. This is what we do. This is ALL we do.
From Our Clients:
“Gerrid had two of my listings on the first page of Google within two weeks. I have never been so impressed with an SEO service. I would recommend Gerrid to any business owner who wishes to quickly increase his or her visibility on the Internet.”
—Amanda B. Cook, Business Attorney
“I cannot express how much Gerrid Smith and Black Fin have impressed me, and improved my website’s ranking… Gerrid also responds to questions very quickly. What is even more impressive is that Gerrid checks my analytics every day, not just at month’s end. Additionally, Gerrid and Black Fin provide other suggestions to improve my firm’s business, not just the website. I cannot be happier with Gerrid Smith and Black Fin, and highly recommend their services.”
—Seth Gladstein, Gladstein Law Firm
“Before hiring Gerrid and his team, we didn’t really know what was possible as it relates to growing the firm from the web. Today though, our firm generates over 100 leads per month from the web and we just finished a record year in 2013. We couldn’t be more pleased with the Black Fin team.”
“I wanted to thank you for all of the attention you have given me. In the time that our firm has been utilizing your services, our web presence has skyrocketed – a true testament to your expertise and diligence.”
-Andrew M. Lamkin, Esq.
Let me ask you a question… Are you getting what you need out of your firm’s web presence?
Your firm’s website is not just there to look pretty. Your site is there to introduce you to new clients who need what you can give them.
Plain and simple.
Many firms don’t yet understand that having a web presence is a means to an end, a channel to connect your company to new leads. Maybe your firm’s site has yet to be designed or is overdue for a thorough revamp. Maybe you have spent thousands to create a new site, only to find your listings buried on page 5 of Google.
Or maybe your site has beautiful design and a decent page ranking, but the visitors who make it there never turn into clients. By the time they sort through the keyword-stuffed content produced by another graceless SEO hack, they no longer see your firm as a credible authority.
Is it possible to have all three?
Beautiful web design, high search-engine rankings, and intelligent content demonstrate your standout legal experience and attract new clients.
We at Black Fin have married our design and content-writing savvy with expertise in law firm Internet marketing to give you just that.
Not only do we create and manage a beautiful web presence for your firm, but we also add value to that presence with our proven SEO skills, combined with smart, compelling content to bring new leads through your firm’s doors.
Black Fin is led by Chief Strategist Gerrid Smith, who boasts seven years of experience in Law Firm SEO. Smith himself will analyze and develop a tailored marketing strategy built for your firm’s particular market. He works closely with a small, handpicked team of designers, programmers, and content writers to offer you a turnkey, three-prong solution that will make your firm’s corner of the Internet beautiful, compelling… and packed with traffic! This lets you focus on doing what you do best: Practicing the law.
How exactly does Black Fin do this?
We ensure that potential clients can find your beautiful new site on Google page 1 with an SEO strategy tailored to showcase your firm’s experience to your particular market. Black Fin takes advantage of its team’s extensive experience in working exclusively on Law Firm SEO to start bringing traffic to your site immediately.
Finally, our content writers will build rapport with site visitors by creating authoritative content to interest and inform potential clients. Visitors come to your site looking for reliable information to help them understand their particular legal situation. Our writers will create info pages for each of your areas of practice and blog posts that recap related news and developments, artfully building on your SEO information along the way. This will not only keep your site high in the Google rankings, but will also build trust with readers who need the knowledge that your site can offer them.

Is there a catch?
That’s a good question. The reason web design firms charge so much money for design is that, in many cases, they are building something completely custom for you.
The truth is, you don’t need a web design built from scratch. You need a website that is going to convert prospects into leads. That’s the purpose.
Black Fin is affordable because we took our knowledge of being in the legal industry for many years (we’ve looked at well over 1,000 law firm websites during that time), then we looked at over 400 layouts from some of the most well-respected designers online, and picked the 15 that we felt would work best for 99% of the legal industry.
When you sign up with Black Fin, we have you fill out a questionnaire that tells us what kind of website will work well for your law firm.
It’s still completely custom to your firm – it’s just not built from scratch. That’s the difference between a $10,000 website and a $3,500 website.
If I can show you a website that looks just as good as a “built from scratch” design, and it has twice the features at less than half the price, wouldn’t you be crazy not to use it?
