Eagan, Minn., October 18, 2012 -- FindLaw has introduced Mobile Essential, a mobile solution for attorneys that uses responsive design technology to optimize law firm websites so that visitors and potential clients have a premium user experience whether viewing the page from a smartphone, tablet or desktop.

Unlike websites that have a separate mobile Web address for mobile device viewing, websites with responsive design configurations automatically respond to the size of a screen so that the entirety of the firm's website, including images and graphics, are viewed consistently across platforms. Responsive design is Google's recommended configuration for mobile Web delivery.

"Our mobile line meets the heightened demands of users expecting the mobile experience to be simple, easy and direct," said Jim Schonrock, senior director of product management, FindLaw. "Our law firms and attorney customers will be able to provide an optimal experience to the more than 160 million and growing number of smartphone users who increasingly rely on mobile devices as their primary Internet connection."

FindLaw's mobile layouts integrate with the designs of FindLaw's law firm websites and are search engine friendly. In addition, the mobile designs include tap-to-call and tap-to-email buttons to provide site visitors the ability to easily contact the firm from anywhere, at any time.

"FindLaw's mobile products align with a law firm's holistic interactive marketing strategy by helping it be visible and accessible wherever its potential clients are, while also ensuring it is providing a seamless user experience," said Schonrock.
