There are way too many divorce lawyers in Salt Creek. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Salt Creek South Carolina and click Search. You’ll see a very long listing of divorce lawyers in and near Salt Creek.
You’ll realize that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They will all inform you within their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click right through to the internet sites of those lawyers , that won’t help either. All of them have exactly 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 listen to any of that noise. If they don’t prove it, it indicates nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want an attorney of proven higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Salt Creek.
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 nothing at all to do with the particular performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Salt Creek are obviously not going to create testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI lawyer who has no necessary information about the lawyer 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 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 realize that several 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 telling you, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Salt Creek 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 know what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Salt Creek divorce lawyer who shows you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer informs you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it may not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Salt Creek. No one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Salt Creek divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce lawyer? Look at how each divorce lawyer handles his / 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 the 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 is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to deal with your personal 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 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’s an 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 Salt Creek? What about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to have one single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re searching for?
