    Hi Steven,

    Great work once again. The only reason I gave the "Visual Appeal" a 4 is because I don't like the white "starburst" type design in the background. I found that my focus kept drifting off to the sides and top/bottom as I read through the site. My favorite page was this:

    http://www.difalcofernandez.com/blog...-show-me-money

    If the background was solid with maaaybe a slight radial fade, it would be perfect.

    Makes me want to go right off the site and hire you. Fine if the site were selling layout services. A box for everything and everything in a separate, visually delineated box. It's the photoshop web version of the modal dialog in programming.

    I'd rather see the boxes used for separate subjects, these seem repetitious. Both are saying the same vapid things using different empty terms.

    Love the text. Good for ten years ago. Almost fits today's market. Probably won't change much ten years from now. Not a trace of timeliness or benefit, lots of buzzwords which seem to promise something ...but have no real meaning and hold out no promise of quality or threshold of performance.

    Just the way the lawyers like it, I'm sure. Nothing made me want to click to go deeper. I'd love to know the bounce rate.

    In contrast there is Quinn Emanuel First, not that I enjoy Flash when it could have been done better without, but this is an attempt at using the fancy effects for information purposes, getting the user through a lot of case histories in a short amount of time to make a point. Rather than empty slogans, they play up a 90% win rate -- that's what you hire a lawyer for. And it is almost unheard of for a Flash designer to think up a way for the effects to have anything to do with the purpose of the site the way this does.

    DC, D&F aren't trial lawyers... they don't litigate, so there's no "win rate"/ D&F are corporate attorneys - they negotiate transactions and contracts. You don't hire corp. attorneys for their win rate, you hire them for their knowledge and creativity in your specific field. Besides that, this is a relatively new firm, and though the partners have fantastic credentials, they can't advertise that as the firm's history - that would be false advertisement.

    You have obviously never had a business deal killed by a lawyer.

    Basically everything you've seen in bad client deals multiplied a hundredfold is what we're talking about in corplaw.

    There is a lot of information these people could display which gives a business person the idea their attorneys have a philosophy at odds with what business people come to expect. Doesn't have to be history. Nor would any of it be unethical.

    What's there now is tempatese gobbly gook. Placeholder text. This is an overly wordy open for business sign, no more.

    Very professional looking. The only thing I didn't like is the text in your footer needs more contrast for readability.
