Use Smooth Edges of Screen Fonts - In Microsoft Windows 98, ME, NT and 2000 verify that "Smooth Edges of Screen Fonts" is checked in Control Panel > Display > Effects if the text on your screen has rough or jagged edges. Checking this box will greatly improve the appearance of the text on your screen. For Microsoft XP or later, go to Control Panel > Display > Appearance > Effects and verify that "Use the Following Method to Smooth Edges of Screen Fonts" is checked and Standard is selected.
Our Website Uses Java Script - Verify that Java script is enabled in Microsoft Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Microsoft VM > JIT Compiler for Virtual Machine Enabled. Checking this box allows Internet Explorer to automatically create and run all Java Applets using its internal Microsoft VM Compiler.
Searching for a Specific Legal Issue or Member Lawyer - Each OptimusLaw™ state web site includes a powerful text search feature that lets you search every page for words or combinations of words that you enter into the search form. Click the Find A Lawyer button above to view a map with links to each state web site. Click on the state you want to search. Once your selected state's home page is loaded, click on the search button to use that state's search engine to help you find the legal information, legal issue or legal representation that you need.
Verify Your Temporary Internet Settings - To ensure that you are always viewing the most current pages on our website, verify that "Never" is not selected in Microsoft Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > General > Temporary Internet Files > Settings. If this box is checked, Internet Explorer will open previously viewed pages of our website stored in your temporary internet files subdirectory on your computer. You will not see changes or updates of our pages unless you click View > Refresh.
View With Medium Text Size - In Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer verify that "Medium" text size is checked in View > Text Size > Medium if the text on your screen is too large, too small or is difficult to read.
Check Setting On Ad Blocking Or Internet Security Software - If gray areas appear when viewing OptimusLaw web site pages you probably have ad blocking or Internet security software running on your computer. By default these software programs usually block graphics, buttons and banners from properly displaying. Change your settings or disable your security software when viewing OptimusLaw.
