Now that we have the basic structure of our website using Elementor, we now need to build custom post types and custom meta boxes that work with Elementor so that we can build out dynamic content for our custom website.

These custom post types will allow us to create individual practice areas for our dummy Law Firm website. We will also use the custom meta boxes to create new fields for our users to add to.
