Web Design & Development

I help businesses build client-centered websites and web-based tools.

A client-centered website incorporates information, resources, and tools that enhance your client service and empower your clients. Client-centered websites can include a client portal, knowledge base, expert systems, document assembly, and more.

I’m happy to help you build a “plain old” website or collaborate with you and your marketing agency on a high-performance marketing website, but your website can do more than just help you get clients. It can also help you serve the clients you already have.

That’s what I’d love to do: help you build a client-centered website or reimagine your existing website so it helps you get clients and serve them.

Design Process


Together we will define your goals and requirements for your project, including:

  • Brand Identity
  • Audience/Ideal Client
  • Key Competitors
  • Calls to Action
  • Colors & Fonts
  • Client-Centered Features


Next we will generate and refine ideas, sketches, and wireframes until you are ready to move forward.


Once you have approved the design direction I will get to work!

This usually takes about one month, but it depends on the project.


Time to unveil the result!

You can still request revisions, and of course the final go/no-go decision is yours to make.

Once we have finalized the project I will deploy it to your live website.


Your website will be built on the WordPress open-source content management system so you can edit your own website content and take advantage of the vast WordPress community and ecosystem. WordPress can also be integrated with a ton of other software, such as case or project management software, intake/CRM software, document assembly software, and more.

For hosting websites, I use SiteGround managed WordPress hosting. SiteGround includes daily backups, enhanced speed and security, and a free SSL certificate for your website. (Although if your website is already hosted somewhere else, it can stay there if you prefer.)


After we define your goals and requirements I will give you an estimate for your project.

Websites typically start at $5,000, plus $99 per month after deployment for hosting, email configuration, domain renewals, maintenance, and support.

For other projects the cost depends on the work to be done. If you contact me and describe your project or the problem you are trying to solve I will do my best to give you a ballpark estimate.

About Me

Sam Glover

I have been building websites for longer than I have been a lawyer. As a freshman in college I built websites for a European Star Wars convention and a video game startup. I built a website for the outdoor store where I worked evenings and weekends during law school. I built a website for the first law firm I worked for, and when I went to work for a larger firm I started that firm’s blog. Then I built my own firm’s website and blog and started Lawyerist, which I worked on until I left in 2020.

My toolbox includes a deep understanding of law practice and entrepreneurship plus years of experience designing and developing websites and web-based tools and systems. Here are a few examples:
