There are far too many divorce attorneys in Pinehurst. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Pinehurst South Carolina and click Search. You’ll see an extended listing of divorce attorneys in and near Pinehurst.
You’ll notice that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all inform you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click through to web sites of those 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 never want to hear 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 savvy legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to look after your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Pinehurst.
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 know that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the actual performance of the individual attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that if you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Pinehurst are obviously not going to create testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI attorney who doesn’t have necessary knowledge about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t 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 will also notice 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 suggesting, “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 never want your Pinehurst 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 different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So today, 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 Pinehurst divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some type of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney tells you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it may 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 Pinehurst. No one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Pinehurst 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 assume that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their 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 how each attorney positions and promotes his or her own law practice would have been 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 don’t even look after their 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’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 attorney who has seized the best 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 Pinehurst? How about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to possess a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re searching for?
So you don’t need to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you don’t need to go with some non-descript attorney who just stands in line with every other divorce attorney in Sumter County. You need a lawyer who handles himself or herself creatively because that means s/he will handle your divorce in the same manner.
However, there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best family law marketing brand in the world. 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 cases than their competitors. Lawyers who handle many divorce cases tend to become better at it than their local competitors. You want a busy divorce attorney who is experienced in divorce and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost factor. It brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a lower cost of case acquisition than their local lawyer competitors mustpay. This means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney is LIKELY to charge lower fees.
Many also offer flat fee unbundled services such as a document review package, where you will not only know your total cost up-front but also pay only for the services your divorce really requires.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial consultations.
However, maybe the best economic factor for you to take advantage of is that due to 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 the same legal assistance in the future? You’ll be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney for years to come. S/he badly WANTS that free business.
Your 1-800-DIVORCE referrals are what bring your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer’s cost of case acquisition way down. They will get 2, 3, 6 divorces 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 use that knowledge to your advantage. Make 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 want a real good job done in your case.
Only a great job will bring those free referrals. You don’t have to be nasty or mean about that fact. 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 people 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.
