Erick is a lawyer that always thinks of his clients first. So, although his goal is to attract new clients he finds value in considering his current clients' thoughts and feedback for his business' expansion . In order to include their considerations, the decision was made to create a written survey that they could submit.

Did you have difficulty navigating, or finding any specific information from the website?
What was the first thing you were looking forward to seeing on the site?
I noticed that I have the ability to quickly schedule a consultation as soon as I land on the homepage.
No, not at all.
Booking a consultation. It was great seeing that option straight from the beginning.

Not really, it looks like there’s a ton of information on the homepage.
I wanted to really learn about the Kogan & Associates team.
I liked that there is a section that explains why Kogan & Associates is the right law firm for me.
No, all the information that I needed to get access to seems to be laid out well.

When the thought of working with a law firm came to mind, I immediately thought of the colors blue and gray. I'm sure the same thought crosses the mind of many. I was confident that the color blue would provide a level of brand recognition. I wanted to take it a step further by not going for the traditional royal, or midnight blue that is immersed in varying areas of this industry. So, I opted for something more vibrant. I also wanted to make sure that the visuals representing freedom, and individuals being consulted were present. My goal was to make sure every visitor would immediately know they reached a space that is representative of a law firm.
Erick Kogan has an excellent reputation, therefore I had to handle his needs with care. It was important to showcase his talent, but also make sure that the branding was in alignment with everything he represents. There was a bit of pressure to make sure everything was on point, because his firm does not only represent him - but also his talented team.
It will be interesting to se how a firm that has operated without an online presence for so long will be impacted with this new digital presence. I would advice Erick to market his new digital space by adding a QR code to any direct marketing collateral that he may currently have.
