I am pleased to report that the LexisNexis Web Visibility Solutions team won Best Legal Mobile Website in the Web Marketing Association's prestigious 2012 MobileWebAwards Competition.m.webaward 2012

This is a particularly exciting win, as the award-winning site, "Philadelphia Immigration Attorneys Mobile Multi-Platform Site," demonstrates how the same legal website can be optimized to be easily viewed from multiple platforms, whether that's from a PC, a tablet, or a smartphone. This is important because mobility matters more than ever for attorneys. In February, global technology analyst Canalys released its 2011 sales report that found, for the first time, smartphone sales exceeded PCs. Moreover, in the United States, mobile searches have quadrupled in the last year, according to Google.

More consumers are using their devices to research legal issues online and seek out consultations, often when it matters the most. In fact, for some legal practice areas — such as personal injury, and drunk driving defense — not having a mobile-optimized site means that potential clients having difficulty viewing your contact info from their iPhones will just call another firm.

Seventh Major Award Win in Past Year

This win marks the seventh major award within the last year for the LexisNexis Web Visibility Solutions team.  This new award is also key, because it is for mobility, complementing award wins for website design, online marketing effectiveness, Client Center, and more. Our other awards include:

I continue to be extremely proud of the exceptional value and innovation the Web Visibility Solutions team brings to our customers in developing world-class law firm websites.
