CASE STUDY – Law Firm Website Design & SEO

Navigate Law Group | Vancouver, WA

Who is Navigate Law Group?

Navigate Law Group was founded in December 2014 by a team of very talented attorneys in Vancouver, Washington. The law firm consists of a local team of successful lawyers with expertise in a wide range of legal areas. The Navigate team provide top-notch legal services for Vancouver and Portland-metro area residents, and they also value their community deeply. Navigate Law Group attorneys volunteer more than 80 hours per month on average so that our community can have easy access to the justice system.

A trusted partnership.

Ichor Studios selects our clients very carefully. It’s always been our top priority and honor to work with businesses that have similar values and company culture. Our common values include:

  • Billing transparency and clear communication.
  • Continued education and attend industry-wide conferences.
  • Trust, integrity, and put clients’ interests first.
  • Community first.  

We are thankful for the opportunity to work with a group of professionals like those at Navigate Law Group.

The Challenges

The previous Navigate Law Group website was built by a tech-savvy team member who used a popular drag-and-drop website builder called Weebly. Although the old site served the law firm very well for the first few years, the firm has outgrown the platform for three main reasons: 

  • Brand inconsistency
  • Lack of maintenance
  • An urgent SEO need for online visibility

Amber, one of Navigate’s founding members, invited Ichor Studios to develop a pitch to take over Navigate’s digital marketing needs. In response, we created a custom solution that allows Navigate to build a simple landing page to replace the old site without breaking the bank. We also proposed a monthly SEO retainer, which enables us to guide the Navigate team as they create more relevant content for legal keywords in addition to well-researched blog content. The result is a website that not only provides comprehensive and useful content but also ranks well among relevant searches.

Our Solution

We built an easy-to-navigate landing page for the law office back in 2019 and continue to add additional pages to their website. In March 2020, Navigate now has a powerhouse website that not only shares what legal services they offer, but also demonstrates their legal knowledge through consistent blog posting. 

Our monthly SEO services have heavily focused on improving Navigate’s rankings when it comes to legal service related keywords. In the meantime, we also helped to improve their local search listing. By optimizing the technical configuration of their Google Business Page, as well as adding content that most other attorneys are missing out on — like an FAQ and Google posts — we help new clients find Navigate Law Group online. 

Through a well-designed SEO campaign by Moz, along with Google’s native traffic tracking platforms, we can help the law firm achieve significant ranking improvements in many legal fields.
