There are so many divorce attorneys in Midfield. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Midfield South Carolina and click Search. You’ll see a very long list of divorce attorneys in and near Midfield.
You’ll realize that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll 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 web sites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. Each of them have the exact same cookie-cutter websites.
Each of them look and sound the same. Each of them 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 do not want to know any of that noise. If they don’t prove it, it means 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 attorney. You want a lawyer of proven higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Midfield.
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 be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has absolutely nothing to do with the particular performance of the individual attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that if you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Midfield are obviously not going to publish testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI attorney who doesn’t have necessary understanding of the attorney 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 attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t let you know 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.
Additionally you will realize that several divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You could 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 telling you, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Midfield divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone to you when she’s just been taking care of a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So today, as you read this, only you know what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Midfield divorce attorney 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 attorney tells you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it could not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Midfield. No one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Midfield divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find 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 just how business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very own businesses would be the way s/he handles the problems 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 just 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 deal with your own legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each attorney. 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 such a lawyer.
So what is a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the most effective family law brand in the whole world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Midfield? How about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to have one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re trying to find?
You don’t want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you don’t want to go with some me-too attorney who just blends in with all other divorce attorney in Sumter County. You want a lawyer who handles his or her own law practice business decisively because that means s/he will look after your divorce in the same manner.
But there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the premier family law marketing brand on the planet. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney many more divorces than their competitors. Lawyers who handle a lot of divorces are usually better at handling divorces than their local competitors. You want a busy divorce attorney who is experienced in family law and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost-effectiveness factor. The brand brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a lower case acquisition cost than their local lawyer competitors pay. This means your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney is MUCH MORE LIKELY to charge lower fees.
Many also have fixed fee a la carte services such as a document review legal services offering, where you will not only know your total fee up-front but also pay only for the services your case really needs.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
But maybe the best economic 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 say to a friend or relative who is in need of the same legal assistance in the future? You’ll say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) will be free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney for many years to come. S/he WANTS that free business.
Your 1-800-DIVORCE referrals are what bring your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer’s case acquisition cost way down. They will get 2, 3, 6 divorce cases for the cost of one (yours). And that’s why they signed up. And you know that, and they know that, and they hope you know that.
So take advantage. Be sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney knows 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 case.
Only a great job will bring those free referrals. And you don’t have to be nasty or mean about that reality. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney will know it’s true. Tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney didn’t have 1-800-DIVORCE, how would you refer friends and colleagues to him or her. You’ll forget his or her name and you’ll lose his or her email address. In 2 or 5 years, you’ll never remember, but you’ll never forget 1-800-DIVORCE.
