If you want to design a legal website that wins full marks for its visual and functional appeal, you need to make some intelligent decisions as far as your choice of design elements is concerned. At the same time you need to avoid falling into certain web designing pitfalls that can make your legal website design look very ordinary.


Letâs take a look at 3 common designing errors that you must avoid at all costs:


1. Picking commonly used stock images

If you browse numerous legal websites, you will realize that many of them have the same stock images. This is a cardinal error that you must avoid. Pick stock images by all means, but make sure that you only pick images that are not very commonly used. When a visitor comes to your site and sees the same image that has been used on some other site, your website loses all credibility in his eyes. Remember, the visitor is judging the merits of your legal services through your site. If he thinks you have made no effort to make it different, he will not have a good impression of your services. So pick relevant images and ones that are unique.


2. Illegible Fonts

You definitely must have come across websites that have a lot of textual content on them, but itâs difficult to read, because the font size chosen is very small and the style make it even more illegible. Avoid this mistake and pay attention to the basics of website design. One basic fundamental is focusing on the readability of your website content and make sure that everyone who browses through your site, is able to read and each and every word on it. If you forget this basic principle of web designing, there is no chance that your website will succeed.


3. Complex Navigation

A legal website design where the navigation is complex and difficult to make sense of, ends up being a miserable failure. People who are browsing any site, irrespective of whether it offers legal services or something else, want access to the important information quickly. In the case of a legal site this can be your services page or those that offer some information about a legal documentation process etc. If they cannot find these pages easily because of confusing navigation, they will prefer going to some other site. This is something that you need to avoid at all costs, so focus on improving your navigation and all will be well. But if you donât design a proper navigation for your legal website, say goodbye to any chance of achieving website success.


End Words

There is a think line of difference between a successful website and one that has a very low conversion ratio. This difference lies in the number of designing errors avoided by designers of the successful website compared to those made by the designers of the website that filed to make an impact. The equation is very simple. Make less mistakes and the website design will be successful; if you make a lot of mistakes, your design will fail to attract visitor attention.
