You will find way too many divorce lawyers in Wilkins. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Wilkins South Carolina and click Search. You’ll see a very long list of divorce lawyers in and near Wilkins.
You’ll observe that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They will all tell you within 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.
If you click through to the web 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 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 don’t want to hear any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, it means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You want a lawyer of proven higher quality to look after your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Wilkins.
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 be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has absolutely nothing to do with the specific performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the little information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Wilkins are obviously not going to write 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 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 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 will 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 letting you know, “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 don’t want your Wilkins 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 different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So at this time, as you read this, only you realize what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Wilkins divorce attorney who shows 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 informs you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it may not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Wilkins. No-one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Wilkins divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney handles his / her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It’s reasonable to believe that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their own businesses will be the way s/he handles the issues 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 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 handle 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 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 this lawyer.
So what’s a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce attorney who has seized the very best family law brand in the whole world? What about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Wilkins? What about a divorce attorney who’s 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 attorney you’re looking for?
So you don’t want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you don’t want to go with some me-too attorney who just stands in line with all other divorce attorney in Beaufort County. Instead, you want a lawyer who handles his or her own law practice business creatively because that means s/he will handle your case the same way.
