Oftentimes a firm adds a new attorney and they need to be placed on the website immediately. But, getting photos taken for that new attorney can sometimes take a while–especially during these times (thanks covid).  If this is the case and you do not want to have a blank space/image or a “person placeholder” where the attorney’s photo is supposed to go, you can add a simple, yet customized placeholder image.

A grayscale silhouette of a person on a white background serves as the perfect placeholder image for an attorney on your website, maintaining professionalism without specific details about the individual's appearance.
