Public defenders in the capitol city.

A case to redesign justice.

The Challenge:


The Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia (PDS) required a website that could provide law resources for employees, law clerks, justice professionals, and the general public. But the requirement was that it run on the .Net framework.

The Solution:


Utilizing the SiteFinity Content Management System (CMS), Blue Water designed a visually appealing, easy-to-navigate website with responsive web programming in mind. To further enhance site-visibility, Blue Water implemented a SEO capability.

The Outcome:


The PDS website, a much needed information hub, was launched to an all round positive response in September 2015. “We’re so inspired, and know our clients will be too!” said the PDS client. Since the launch, the website has seen a 24% increase in pages per session, a 44% increase in session duration, and a 16% decrease in bounce rate compared to the same period a year before.
