You will find way too many divorce lawyers in Massanetta Springs. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Massanetta Springs Virginia and click Search. You’ll get a very long listing of divorce lawyers in and near Massanetta Springs.
You’ll notice that all of those lawyers 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 wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click right through to the web sites of these lawyers , that won’t help either. They all have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all 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 know any of that noise. If they do not prove it, it 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 lawyer. You want an attorney of proven higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Massanetta Springs.
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 advisable to remember that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has absolutely nothing to do with the particular performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that lawyer. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the little information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Massanetta Springs are obviously not going to write 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 lawyer who doesn’t have necessary understanding of 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 inform 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 can also notice that a number of these 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|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Massanetta Springs divorce lawyer to pick up the phone to you when she’s just been working 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 realize what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Massanetta Springs divorce lawyer who shows you some sort 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 type of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it could not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Massanetta Springs. No-one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Massanetta Springs 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 think that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the difficulties and challenges in their own businesses would be the way s/he handles the difficulties and challenges in your case.
People generally bring the exact same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So just how each lawyer positions and promotes his or her own law practice will be a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to handle your own legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their own business interests?
So look carefully at each lawyer. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a fake 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’s a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce lawyer who has seized the very best family law brand in the whole world? What about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Massanetta Springs? What about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to have a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
So you don’t want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . And you don’t want to hire some me-too lawyer who simply blends in with every other divorce lawyer in Rockingham County. You want a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business boldly because that means s/he will look after your interests the same way.
