The firm name, Roark Law Firm, P.A., can be shortened to RLF if that fits with better with the logo. That said, I would really prefer to have the name involved in the design.
Personally, I have always loved Eastern Blue Birds and Blue Jays (both of which are present in our area) and am partial to minimalist designs. I included pictures of the birds just so you'd know what I was talking about.
I have previously used the line "Planning for Business and Life" on business cards, websites, etc. If it fits into the design, great. If not, no worries.
My practice is located in Gainesville, Florida, the site of the University of Florida. UF's primary colors are orange and blue (and their logo is a gator). I don't say this to indicate that I want a gator logo -- just letting you know what the dominant or popular colors/imagery are in town.ve
