There are far too many divorce attorneys in Andrew. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Andrew Florida and click Search. You’ll see an extended list of divorce attorneys in and near Andrew.
You’ll realize that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all inform you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click to the web sites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. They all have the same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all let you know about various almost identical qualities about themselves. The problem is that not one of them can prove a single claim they make. You don’t want to listen to any of that noise. If they don’t prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need a lawyer of proven higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Andrew.
To be clear, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a lawyer having an Avvo account, a Yelp Account, a LegalZoom account or a Google My Business page. What’s wrong is when they ONLY have those accounts and do not position themselves professionally to stand out from the lawyer-crowd.
You should also remember that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has practically nothing to do with the particular performance of the individual attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Andrew are obviously not going to publish testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI attorney who has no necessary understanding of the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer as a swap for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not inform you how good or affordable any attorney actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce attorney providing your divorce is uncontested. Cheap divorce attorneys tend to be good divorce attorneys because they tend to handle a lot of divorce and other family law matters. So you can certainly tell your friends that you found an affordable divorce attorney through 1-800-DIVORCE, but let’s face it, if you have an uncontested divorce, you WANT a cheap divorce lawyer.
You can also realize that many of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You could have found them on Avvo’s divorce page, but a number of these lawyers also handle bankruptcy, DUI, personal injury, crime, car-wreck, immigration, social security disability, etc. They’re telling you, “Hey, we do a|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You will want divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Andrew divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone to you when she’s just been working on a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So right now, as you read this, only you realize what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Andrew divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some type of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney informs you about himself or herself. That type of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it might not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Andrew. No one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Andrew divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney handles his or her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It is reasonable to think that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their very own businesses would be the way s/he handles the issues and challenges in your case.
People generally bring exactly the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So how each attorney positions and promotes their own law practice will be a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to handle your personal legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each attorney. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a phony rating, leave them alone. If they represent themselves only on a cookie-cutter website and only with self-praise, leave them alone. There is no dynamic or creative insight or spark in such a lawyer.
So what’s a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce attorney who has seized the most effective family law brand in the whole world? What about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Andrew? What about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to have a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re looking for?
So you do not need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you do not need to hire a non-descript attorney who simply blends in with all other divorce attorney in Leon County. Instead, you need a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business decisively because that means s/he will handle your divorce in the same manner.
