The Modern Law Firm

This is our first free WordPress theme for small law firms.

Sleek, modern, and eminently professional, this theme is everything you need to get your firm’s online marketing off the ground.

Because The Modern Law Firm is designed to exactly meet the needs of an attorney’s Web site, it is ten times easier to get the exact site you want.

It comes with plenty of options for customization, but the real benefit is that the default settings produce an exceptional site. No need to tinker for hours to get the design you want—this theme “just works.”

21% of consumers use smartphones to search for an attorney.

That means if you want to get more clients from your Web site, you need a design that plays nice with mobile devices.

That’s why the Modern Law Firm adapts to the screen size of whatever device you’re using, giving visitors a great experience whether they’re on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or phone.


What you see is what you get.


Unlike other themes, we’ve done our best to keep shortcodes to a minimum.

Don’t get us wrong: shortcodes are great for adding new functionality to your WordPress site. But it’s hard to envision what they’re going to look like when you actually hit the Publish button.

That’s why we’ve upgraded the standard WordPress page editor: you can insert buttons and banners, create custom layouts, and so on, all without ever touching a shortcode.

That means that what you see in the page editor is what it will look like when you publish.



Great-looking image slider

The theme bundles a free, easy-to-use image slider.

You can insert slides at the top of a page (like your home page) or within any page.


Search engine optimizedSearch engine optimized

The theme is designed using SEO best practices, so that you get the most traffic possible out of your Web presence.


Customize with your logo, colors, and more

The Modern Law Firm makes it easy to use your firm’s logo, and to change the site’s colors to match your own branding.
