For over twenty five years we have created careful, accurate and beautifully designed websites and branding for law firms, consulting companies, financial services businesses and nonprofits. Our work has been recognized with a number of industry awards.

Maze with arrow denoting the movement through complex projectsWe excel in explaining, and then executing, complex design projects, and supporting them over the long term. Many of our clients have worked with us for over five years, ten years, or even longer.

DLS has worked for many of the most significant white collar and criminal defense boutique law firms in New York City. We also have a number of clients in Washington, D.C., Florida, California and the Northeastern US.

DLS builds exclusively on the WordPress platform, and we have over a decade of demonstrated mastery of design customization. All websites are secure, using SSL certificates, tested for ADA compliance and mobile responsiveness, and are search-engine optimized.

Lock icon denoting the attention DLS Design pays to securityWe continually monitor all websites, and the servers and firewalls on which they run; back up using redundant schedules and locations; act upon safety alerts from the major WordPress security applications; and apply updates to plugins and themes as soon as they become available, and verified to be safe.
