I help do-gooders build strategic, innovative websites.
I can help you build your first website or take your existing website to the next level. We’ll clarify your strategy, design your website around that strategy, and then build it to be fast, stable, and secure.
In addition to designing your website I can help you create or update the essential elements of your brand identity: a logo or wordmark, color palette, typography, and other brand assets you might need.
Custom Web Development
Need something special? I have years of experience building custom web solutions. Some examples:
- Customizations for the Law Practice Exchange’s law-firm marketplace
- Lawyerist’s product review portal and Small Firm Scorecard
Basically, if there’s something you wish your website could do, let’s talk.
Should We Work Together?
I collaborate with do-gooders who want to build a strong web presence.
This might be your first website and you want to start with a solid foundation. Or you might have a website already but you want to take it to the next level. Either way, you want a strategic partner—someone who can help you translate your vision, goals, and budget into a development roadmap, then get it done.
If that sounds like you, we should talk.
Together we will define your goals and requirements for your project, and estimate the cost.
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!
Time to unveil the result!
You can still request revisions, and of course the final go/no-go decision is yours to make.
I build websites on the WordPress open-source content management system unless there is a good reason not to. WordPress is a powerful, flexible foundation for all kinds of websites, and WordPress makes it easy to edit the content of your pages.
I host my clients’ websites on SiteGround’s managed WordPress hosting, which includes daily backups, staging, enhanced speed and security, and a free SSL certificate.
I usually design minimalist/brutalist websites with clear typography and bold accent colors—like the one you are looking at now. I emphasize function over form, and I strive to build websites that are as fast, efficient, well organized, and user-friendly as possible.
When a client wants something different, I am happy to work with their graphic designer (or help them find one). You can see examples of both in my portfolio and projects—websites I designed, and websites designed by someone else that I worked on.
Once I understand your goals and requirements I will give you a ballpark estimate for your project. Then we can refine that estimate as we move through the design process.
Here are some example prices:
- Building or redesigning a website typically costs $3–5,000.
- Developing an automated workflow for your website typically costs $1–3,000.
- Setting up and configuring a basic client portal like Client Power Tools typically costs under $500.
I charge $99 per month for website hosting. Hosting includes SiteGround managed hosting, select premium WordPress plugin licenses,* email configuration, maintenance, and support.
*Premium plugins currently included in the hosting plan are Advanced Custom Fields Pro, Font Awesome Pro, Gravity Forms Elite, and Elementor Pro when necessary to support sites already using it.

I have been building websites and web-based tools almost since I first got access to a computer in high school. 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.
