A Very Different Firm

I received an email last night from Lee Rosen, founder of the Rosen Law Firm, of North Carolina. Lee's biggest claim to fame may be that he is a distant cousin of William Shatner, alias Captain Kirk, but he has created a very different kind of family law firm, as a quick look at their website will confirm. The site is packed with helpful advice and tips for clients going through divorce and separation, much of it in video form, and even includes a forum where visitors can post questions on legal issues and get a response from an attorney. The firm also has another site, Stay Happily Married, "dedicated to providing resources to help couples who want to stay together".

The website explains that they "are a law firm that serves mainly, but not exclusively, technology and business people, and our practice is adapted to serve that highly trained and sophisticated population". This clearly comes through in the design of the website, which gives visitors as much information as possible, something that such clients would expect.

Although I have visited a number of US law firm websites, I do not consider myself to be an expert. I have not previously seen a site like this, and would suggest that UK law firms might learn a thing or two from a visit.
