There are so many divorce lawyers in Montezuma. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Montezuma Virginia and click Search. You’ll get an extended list of divorce lawyers in and near Montezuma.
You’ll observe that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you in their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click to the internet sites of those 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 do not want to listen to any of that noise. If they do not prove it, it indicates 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 attorney. You want a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Montezuma.
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 nothing at all to do with the actual performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Montezuma 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 an area DUI attorney who does not have any necessary information about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not tell 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 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 attorney through 1-800-DIVORCE, but let’s face it, if you have an uncontested divorce, you WANT a cheap divorce lawyer.
You can also observe that a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You might 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 Montezuma divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone to you when she’s just been working on 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 realize what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Montezuma divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney informs you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it could not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Montezuma. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Montezuma 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’s reasonable to think that just how 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 how each attorney 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 attorney to deal with your own legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their 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 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 world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Montezuma? How about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to have one single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re trying to find?
You do not want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you do not want to go with a me-too attorney who simply stands in line with all other divorce attorney in Rockingham County. Instead, you want a lawyer who handles his or her own law practice business boldly because that means s/he will look after your divorce the same way.
