Alternatively, the baton is handed to a practice or marketing manager who all ready works under pressure. Our philosophy is quite simple -we do all the work but you stay in charge. We offer law firms a free 2 hour brainstorming session on how we can take your website to the next level and drive more clients to you. Please talk to David Clarke on FREEPHONE 0800 988 8366 or 01522 811688 for a free no obligation discussion of your needs.
