It's not a bad idea to have a search engine on a site map, but if your site 
is that small, it looks redundant.

I would go with the two separate controls. The site map is good if you want 
to locate a whole section on your site, and the search tends to focus more 
on specifics. I would add a link in the site map page to access the search, 
but that's just to make navigation easier for the visitor.

I like the design here. It's slick, simple, and very intuitive. Users 
should have no problems browsing this site. And this is just a comment, 
maybe you already had it planned, but make sure that the logo (Criminal 
Lawyer, etc) also links to home. I think that's it.
