RE: [newtech-1] CMS for Law Firm Website: Off the Shelf vs. Custom Solution

I second the ExpressionEngine recommendation -- I've done about two dozen
sites within the last two years or so, after working with Joomla, Drupal,
and some high-end (aka expensive) custom stuff. 

Drupal and Joomla packagers are great on its own, with an incredible
community support. But I'd also take a look at EE as well as ModxCMS (also
OpenSource).

Why bother with a custom solution when there are so many fantastic and  
easily extensible CMSes out there, especially for relatively simple  
needs? My CMS of choice is Expression Engine, but that, Joomla, and  
Drupal you can do almost anything with.

Just my two cents.
