“I hired First and Third to design a website for my law practice, which is 9 years old. We have changed quite a bit from when we launched our then-current website, and First and Third understood what we were looking for: a refresh, and not a redo. They assigned an insightful, artistic, and consummate professional for us to work with on the project, from start to finish. From time to time, we would check in with the higher ups, but it felt like a pretty seamless process overall. The results were excellent; we have had many compliments on the new website. Personally, I enjoy its ease of use. Being a WordPress user, it is important for me to update my own website. I highly recommend working with First and Third: they are good listeners, creative problem solvers, and enthusiastically helped me to meet my goals.”
