Law Firms Ahead & Behind On the Internet

The internet is a big equalizer. Take a look at Heller Erhman's website. They're a huge law firm that has their website translated into seven languages. One of my law school classmates works there, so I won't say anything bad about it except for the hokey flash intro. Really, though, it's a cool site.

But if you want to see hokey, try out Denver's Powers Phillips, whose site features the Bitches From Hell Reporter. They even provide this "IMPORTANT NOTICE: HOW TO TELL IF YOU ARE A COMPLETE IDIOT This homepage is intended to be a joke. Other parts of this website are also intended to be jokes. However, as a public service to enable our readers to determine whether or not they are complete idiots, we have also included a bunch of boring, serious material without a joke in sight. If you can tell the difference, you are not a complete idiot."

Who said lawyers didn't know how to be funny? OK, so it's a little (read "a lot") off track.

But not all lawyers have it figured out. According to this article, we have a long way to go. Hopefully, this site is a bit ahead of the curve for law firm web presences.

Only your hairdresser knows for sure.
