PaperStreet Web Design
The idea of a web design company focusing on law firm needs was born when Pete Boyd was in law school. It was the late '90s, and the internet was still a relatively new place. Pete, a self-taught computer geek and aspiring attorney, started checking out law firms online to learn more about potential employers. He was surprised to find that many firms didn't have a website. Those that did looked like "crap." (Pete has always been very reluctant to say what he thinks). "I could do better," he thought. So he did. In 2001, with several websites under his belt, he incorporated PaperStreet. After graduating law school, Pete went to work for a boutique intellectual property firm in Miami. He would bill all day doing lawyerly things, come home, and head to his computer to design all night for his growing list of legal clients, whose needs he understood firsthand. At this point, the side web work was just for fun.
