Why Is Website Maintenance Important For Law Firms?


Maintaining a law firm’s online presence requires more than just creating an attractive law firm website design. With the increasing threat of cyber-attacks, firms need to prioritize website security to safeguard sensitive client information, such as detailed personal information that might be submitted through website contact forms. Regular web maintenance can prevent potential data loss and ensure the site functions smoothly. In addition to security benefits, our website maintenance services also improves a website’s performance, resulting in faster loading times and increased user engagement. This optimization can improve user experience and increase conversions, ultimately benefiting the firm’s bottom line. By investing in professional website maintenance services, law firms can save time and resources while maximizing their website’s performance.

Free Up Time

Maintaining a website can be a time-consuming task, which can take away from the firm’s legal work if handled in-house.

Set It & Forget It

Our maintenance plans take the hassle out of website upkeep by handling updates, security, performance, and support so you don’t have to.

Focus On Your Practice

Don’t let your website distract you from managing your firm or disrupt serving your clients.

Improve Site Over Time

With our website maintenance services, we don’t just maintain your site but also work to improve it every month.

Improve SEO, Rank Higher

Optimizing website speed, fixing broken links, and updating content can have a significant impact on SEO by helping improve rankings in Google search.

Boost Protection

When a website falls victim to hacking, malware, or viruses, it can be disastrous for both the firm and its clients. This is why we prioritize security in our website maintenance services.

Maximize Uptime

Maximizing uptime can help your law firm avoid lost revenue and missed opportunities during unexpected downtime.

What Services Are In Our Website Maintenance Packages?

Our website maintenance packages offer a wide range of services to meet your law firm’s specific needs and budget. With customizable plans, you can choose the services that matter most to you.

They are designed to ensure that your law firm’s website stays up-to-date and secure while running smoothly. Our team of professionals is dedicated to providing exceptional service and support to help you focus on growing your business without worrying about maintaining your website. Let us handle the technical details so that you can concentrate on what matters most — serving your clients and building your practice.

Our Managed Hosting & Domain Support services provide the peace of mind you need so you can focus on your practice. With our secure servers, SSL Certificate management, managed hardware and software updates, and DNS management, you can rest assured that your website is in good hands. Not sure what some of these abstract terms mean or why they’d be important? Here is a brief rundown:

  • Secure servers are computer systems that store and distribute website data to users.
  • An SSL certificate is a tool that encrypts sensitive information on your website, such as login credentials or payment details. This helps protect your clients’ data from hackers.
  • DNS is the Domain Name System, which is responsible for translating domain names (like ThunderheadMarketing.com) into IP addresses so that when users type it into a browser, it takes them to your website.

We also understand the importance of regular website backups to protect against unforeseen events. That’s why we include daily website backups in our hosting management so that you can easily restore your data if necessary.

Additionally, our URL Normalization ensures that all variations of a page’s URL will forward users to the same URL, making it easier for users and search engine spiders to navigate your site.

Keeping your law firm’s website up-to-date and relevant means regularly adding fresh website content, updating old content, and other website maintenance. With our customizable web maintenance packages, you can easily add new or update existing content/pages/posts, edit graphics, photos or charts, and fix any broken pages, images or links.

Regular content updates shows search engines that your website is consistently active and up-to-date, which can improve your SEO rankings over time.

Does a third party vendor need to install tracking code or other scripts on your website? We’ll work with them and take care of it for you. We’ll also setup and install analytics tools like Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and Google Tag Manager.

Hackers are here to stay and they play an ever evolving game of cat and mouse with Security. Ensuring the security of your law firm’s website is crucial to protect sensitive information and prevent any unauthorized access. Our team provides 24/7 monitoring to detect vulnerabilities, malware, and hacking attempts, and we promptly take action to neutralize any threats. We also keep your website updated with the latest security updates, security patches, and protocols for maximum protection.

With our spam tools and tactics in place, we can mitigate spam form submissions from your website’s contact forms.

In the unlikely event your site manages to get hacked, you can count on us for virus removal, as well as daily backups of your full website and database in case we need to restore to a previous version.

When it comes to website performance optimization, speed and uptime are the most crucial factors for any website. We provide regular speed tests and performance scans to identify areas of improvement as well as uptime monitoring. Our experts optimize images, minimize codes, and implement caching techniques to improve load times. By improving website load time, we can help boost your search engine rankings, enhance user experience, and increase conversions. Sometimes this means making adjustment’s with a custom approach to a firm’s website’s design.

Our team will perform all necessary updates for WordPress, plugins, frameworks, and clean up any bugs or issues found after updates.

We also remove unused assets and files to keep your website running smoothly.

Making user experience improvements and ensuring mobile responsiveness are essential when it comes to maintaining a successful website. User experience improvements can range from minor adjustments that enhance website navigation to significant changes in the website’s design and layout. Ensuring mobile responsiveness for your firm’s website is equally important since more than half of all internet traffic now comes from mobile devices, and failure to optimize for these users can lead to lower search engine rankings and decreased engagement.

Furthermore, making your website easy to use for visitors on all devices and most popular browsers can improve conversions, which is crucial for law firms looking to attract new clients. By optimizing your website’s usability, you can ensure that visitors find what they need quickly and easily, making it more likely for them to take action.

Website maintenance can be a complicated and time-consuming process, especially for those who are not tech-savvy. This is where dedicated support comes into play. Having a team of experts on hand to handle any issues that may arise with your website is crucial. With dedicated support, you have access to someone who can answer your questions and provide guidance when needed. They can also help with systems training and website support: WordPress site support for themes, templates, and plugins, user access management, and website consultation.

How Much Do Our Website Maintenance Services Cost?

When researching website maintenance services online, determining the cost and value can be challenging as it varies based on several factors. The size and complexity of your website, the level of service required, and the duration of the contract all play a vital role in deciding the price. While many businesses may prioritize cost-effectiveness when selecting a maintenance package, it’s essential to consider the long-term benefits that come with a professional maintaining your website.

Each firm is different and we try to be accommodating to the various needs of individual firms by creating packages that are designed to be flexible. They each have varying amount of Flex Hours:

Flex Hours

Flex Hours is time that we can spend working on anything a client’s site needs for a given month. One month a client may request us to focus on updating attorney bios. Another month they might not have any major updates for us and we will use that time to improve the site in other ways, such as page speed, conversion improvement, or technical improvement to the code.

Flex Hours can be added and reduced as needed, as long as the minimum amount of Flex Hours of the client’s website maintenance package is maintained.
