There are way too many divorce attorneys in East Hartford. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter East Hartford Connecticut and click Search. You’ll see a very long list of divorce attorneys in and near East Hartford.
You’ll notice that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all inform you inside 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 through to web sites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. They all have the exact same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all 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 do not want to know any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, it indicates nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You need a lawyer of proven higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in East Hartford.
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 specific performance of the individual lawyer. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that lawyer. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that should you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in East Hartford are obviously not going to create testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area 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 trade for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their 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 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 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 suggesting, “Hey, we do a|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You will want divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You do not want your East Hartford divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone to you when she’s just been focusing on a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So at this time, as you read this, only you realize what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local East Hartford divorce lawyer who shows you some type of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer tells you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it could not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in East Hartford. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best East Hartford divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to find 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’s reasonable to believe that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their very own businesses will be the way s/he handles the issues 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 just how each lawyer positions and promotes their 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 very 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 this lawyer.
So what’s a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the most effective family law brand in the world? How about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in East Hartford? How about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to have a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
You don’t need to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you don’t need to go with some me-too lawyer who simply stands in line with all other divorce lawyer in Hartford County. Instead, you need a lawyer who handles himself or herself boldly because that means s/he will look after your divorce in the same manner.
However, there’s 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 lawyer.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer more divorces than their local competitors. Lawyers who handle a lot of divorce cases are usually better at handling divorces than their local competitors.

1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost-effectiveness factor. The brand provides 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced cost of case acquisition than their local competitors mustpay. That means your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is MUCH MORE LIKELY to charge lower fees.
Many additionally have flat fee unbundled services such as a document review legal services offering, where you will not only know your complete fee up-front but also pay only for the legal services your divorce really requires.

However, perhaps the best economic indicator for you to consider is that because of the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you say to a friend or relative who needs similar help in the future? You’ll say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) will be free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for many 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 may get 2, 3, 6 divorce cases 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 take advantage. Make sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer understands that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you want a very good job done in your divorce.
Only a good job will lead to future referrals. And you don’t need to be nasty or mean about that fact. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer will know it’s true. Tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer did not have 1-800-DIVORCE, how would you refer friends and colleagues 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.
