There are way too many divorce lawyers in Spring Hill. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Spring Hill Florida and click Search. You’ll get a lengthy listing of divorce lawyers in and near Spring Hill.
You’ll observe that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click through to the websites of these lawyers , that won’t help either. All of them have the same cookie-cutter websites.
All of them look and sound the same. All of them inform you about various almost identical qualities about themselves. The problem is that not one of them can prove a single claim they make. You do not want to know any of that noise. If they don’t prove it, it indicates nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want an attorney of proven higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Spring Hill.
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 particular performance of the individual lawyer. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that lawyer. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that should you hover over the little information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Spring Hill are obviously not going to create testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI lawyer who does not have any necessary knowledge about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer as a swap for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t tell you how good or affordable any lawyer actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce lawyer providing your divorce is uncontested. Cheap divorce lawyers tend to be good divorce lawyers 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 observe that a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You may have found them on Avvo’s divorce page, but many of these lawyers also handle bankruptcy, DUI, personal injury, crime, car-wreck, immigration, social security disability, etc. They’re letting you know, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Spring Hill divorce lawyer to pick up the phone to you when she’s just been taking care of a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So today, as you read this, only you know what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Spring Hill divorce lawyer who demonstrates to you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer tells you about himself or herself. That type of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it might not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Spring Hill. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Spring Hill 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’s reasonable to believe that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very own businesses will be the way s/he handles the problems and challenges in your case.
People generally bring the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So just how each lawyer positions and promotes their own law practice would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to deal with your own legal and economic interests when they don’t 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’s no dynamic or creative insight or spark in such a lawyer.
So what is an example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the most effective 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 Spring Hill? How about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to have a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
So you do not want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you do not want to go with a me-too lawyer who simply stands in line with all other divorce lawyer in Leon County. Instead, you want a lawyer who represents himself or herself boldly because that means s/he will look after your case the same way.
However, there’s more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best divorce marketing brand on the planet. Think also 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 many more cases than their local competitors. Lawyers who handle a lot of divorce cases tend to become better at handling divorces than their local competitors. You want a busy divorce lawyer who is experienced in divorce and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost factor. It provides 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced case acquisition cost than their lawyer competitors pay. That means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is MUCH MORE LIKELY to charge lower fees.

However, maybe the best financial indicator for you to take advantage of is that because of the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you say to a friend or relative who is in need of similar legal assistance in the future? You’ll just be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a free case. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for years to come. S/he WANTS that free business.
