"The primary benefit of having a Web site, firms say, is that it declares that their practices are technologically current.... If potential clients are checking out your firm by visiting your site, it would be wise to consider the site's quality. Several things [are recommended] to create a quality Web site. One is to post advice on such practical matters as how to prepare for retirement or how to save money for a child's college tuition. Another...is to update your site on a regular basis so that it doesn't become stale."
