As the average internet bandwidth rate per computer is increasing due to workplace T1, broadband and cell phone 3G networks becoming more common, many law firm web design experts are able to develop complex websites heavily loaded with graphic elements. This may include using flash elements and presentations, mouseovers, drop downs, and web videos. In today’s high speed Internet age, most websites take only a few seconds to load the key features such as the logo, call to action graphics and web content on the visitor’s web browser. This is key so the visitor can start reading the website.
Obviously most users will not wait too long for the website to load completely before moving to the other competing law firm websites in the same search results. The problem you may encounter with inexperienced web designers for lawyers is the webmasters are only familiar with developing slow loading sites due to a lack of knowledge of graphic optimization techniques which can allow them to prepare an attractive website with smaller page size.
