Why are mobile websites for lawyers so important? Can’t potential clients see my regular website on mobile devices?

Mobile websites for lawyers are more important than ever. While potential clients may be able to browse your traditional lawyer website from their smartphones, what they actually end up seeing could be hard to read or impossible to navigate. The unfortunate truth is that most websites are painful to use from a phone or other mobile device—and your mobile visitors will move on if the site isn’t optimized for mobile users.

It has been estimated that around 50% of all local searches are coming from smartphones now. While it seems like people are starting to prefer turning to their phones for a quick Google search, they have to balance convenience with a few drawbacks:

  • Small screens. Smaller screen sizes mean users end up scrolling around to try to read most traditional websites—which quickly gets old. It’s also more difficult to read on such small screens.
  • Tap controls. Any website that isn’t optimized for tap controls can be a headache to use, especially for users in a hurry.
  • Bandwidth issues. Even 4G networks can have issues, making most websites really slow to load, and users won’t wait around. A dedicated mobile website can be optimized to load much more quickly on mobile devices.
