There are far too many divorce attorneys in Gibson. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Gibson Florida and click Search. You’ll get an extended listing of divorce attorneys in and near Gibson.
You’ll realize that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all let you know in their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click right through to the websites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. Each of them have the same cookie-cutter websites.
Each of them look and sound the same. Each of them tell you 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 do not prove it, it means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want a lawyer of proven higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Gibson.
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.
It’s also wise to know that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has practically nothing to do with the actual performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that lawyer. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Gibson are obviously not going to create testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI lawyer who does not have any necessary information about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t let you know how good or affordable any lawyer actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce lawyer 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 lawyer through 1-800-DIVORCE, but let’s face it, if you have an uncontested divorce, you WANT a cheap divorce lawyer.
You will also realize that many of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You may 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 suggesting, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Gibson divorce lawyer to pick up the phone to you when she’s just been focusing on a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So at this time, as you read this, only you understand what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Gibson divorce lawyer who shows you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer tells you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it may not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you don’t have to find the best divorce lawyer in Gibson. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Gibson divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to locate YOUR divorce lawyer? Look at how each divorce lawyer 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 believe that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the difficulties and challenges in their very own businesses will be the way s/he handles the difficulties 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 lawyer positions and promotes his or her own law practice is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to take care of your own personal legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each lawyer. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a bogus 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 this lawyer.
So what’s a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the best family law brand in the world? How about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Gibson? How about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to have a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
So you do not want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you do not want to hire some me-too lawyer who just blends in with all other divorce lawyer in Gadsden County. You want a lawyer who handles himself or herself creatively because that means s/he will look after your case in the same manner.
However, there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard divorce marketing brand in the world. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer more divorces than their local competitors. Lawyers who handle a lot of divorces tend to become better at handling divorces than their local competitors. You definitely want a busy divorce lawyer who is well-versed in divorce and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost-effectiveness component. The brand provides 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a lower case acquisition cost than their local lawyer competitors pay. This means your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is MUCH MORE LIKELY to request lower fees.
Many additionally have fixed fee a la carte services like a document review package, where you will not only have your complete cost up-front but also pay only for the legal services your case actually requires.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial consultations.
However, maybe the best financial factor for you to consider is that due to the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral bonanza. What will you be saying to a friend or relative who is in need of similar help in the future? You’ll just be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a free case. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) will be free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for many years to come. S/he badly WANTS that free business.

So use that knowledge to your advantage. Be sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer understands that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you expect to have a very good job done in your divorce.

Often in a long term marriage, but additionally in shorter marriages, spousal support can be a critical topic.

In almost all cases, the court process for uncontested will be finalized in a much shorter time than for fought divorces.
You might file for divorce thinking the proceeding should be uncontested, but find later that your spouse has decided to contest. This doesn’t occur frequently, but it happens.
You should ask your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer concerning the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. Bear in mind that these are not suitable in ALL uncontested divorces.
