In celebration of our fourth anniversary, the Forrest Firm is proud to unveil a revamped, client-friendly website at www.forrestfirm.com.

Our new site is the result of a months-long collaborative effort with our long-time design partner, Stacey Simeone of Raleigh. Stacey has captured the visual identity of the Forrest Firm since its planning stages in late 2010, when she created the logo that our clients, prospects, and friends see on all of our digital communications and collateral materials, ranging from our website and business cards to our centerfield sign at Durham Bulls Athletic Park during Durham Bulls games.

favicon114A couple of years ago, she re-branded our popular e-newsletter, bringing in a tide of compliments from clients and friends of the firm.  The new ForrestFirm.com is Stacey’s best effort yet on our behalf, a real measure of her ability to collaborate with the firm’s leadership to communicate our vision.  Stacey’s set ambitious goals—and achieved them—for the design, in that the new site must reflect our firm and its values. Chief among these values are our desire to connect with our clients and really get to know them, and be accessible, adaptable, honest, and easy to work with in all situations.

The new website design demonstrates these values with features such as having our contact information displayed above the header.  With no digging required, clients can get to us quickly and easily with their needs and concerns.  The clean, minimal design is straightforward and easy to navigate, so you always know where you’re going next, just as we hope you do after you meet with a Forrest Firm attorney.  The image sliders promise predictable pricing, another of our foundational values and real differentiators at the Forrest Firm.  Basically, we’ve built a site that eliminates hoops and extra people you have to deal with in order to actually get counsel when you need it.

While the site continues to feature content about our attorneys, core practice areas, and representative clients who represent a host of key sectors across the Triangle and North Carolina, the new ForrestFirm.com will up the ante in terms of its dynamic content and accessibility.  We will retain our focus on social media and a blog that delivers guidance on a range of issues affecting businesses, as well as an admiring look at our great community and clients.  In addition, the new site design will be responsive for easy viewing and navigation on mobile devices, delivering on our promise to serve busy, on-the-go executives and entrepreneurs.
