Over the past few years, there has been much conversation around the need for businesses, including law firms, to build accessible websites to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  Recently, the Department of Justice issued guidance on internet accessibility, stating:

“Inaccessible web content means that people with disabilities are denied equal access to information. An inaccessible website can exclude people just as much as steps at an entrance to a physical location. Ensuring web accessibility for people with disabilities is a priority for the Department of Justice.”

Is your law practice’s website accessible?

Omnizant is the only legal marketing agency that develops all sites to be fully compliant with WCAG 2.1 Guidelines. We don’t believe in band-aid solutions, like disability overlays, that often give firms a false sense of security and lead to a subpar user experience for many individuals using assistive technologies. With our remediation services, we rebuild your firm’s website from the ground-up ensuring that every element is accessible.

The Remediation Process

At the start of the remediation process, we perform a comprehensive accessibility audit of your law firm’s website, identifying the areas that need to be addressed. After a review of these findings and a consultation with your firm, we get to work rebuilding your website. Much of this process takes place behind the scenes, in your site’s code, and doesn’t impact the overall aesthetics of the site.

At the conclusion of the remediation, we provide you with a second audit showing that all previously identified issues have been resolved.

An Ongoing Resource to Ensure Continued Compliance

As assistive technologies evolve, so too do accessibility best practices. At Omnizant, we recognize that maintaining an accessible website isn’t a “one and done” project. As your trusted accessibility team, we offer a maintenance solution that includes monthly scans and ongoing remediation to ensure your site remains in compliance.

Frequently Asked Questions About Accessibility Remediation

Will the design of my law firm’s website have to change?

There is a lot of misinformation that suggests that accessible websites have to compromise on design. That just simply isn’t true if you worked with an experienced designer. While some elements on your site may need to change, for example colors to ensure optimal contrast, we make every effort to preserve your site’s current design.

If there are design elements that we need to change to make your site fully accessible, we will identify these before the remediation process and work closely with you to ensure you’re satisfied with the revised look and/or functionality.

What platform will you build my site on?

We build all websites on WordPress. This means you’re never tethered to a proprietary platform and can easily maintain your site independently.

How long does the remediation process take?

The timeline for the remediation process will largely depend on the scope of your project. As you might imagine, bringing a 12-page website into compliance will take significantly less time than a 325-page website. Generally speaking, these projects typically take six weeks to three months to complete. When providing you with a quote, we will also share a detailed timeline for the project.
