You will find far too many divorce attorneys in Parkville. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Parkville Connecticut and click Search. You’ll see a very long list of divorce attorneys in and near Parkville.
You’ll realize that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all let you know inside their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click right through to the websites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. Each of them have the same cookie-cutter websites.
Each of them look and sound the same. Each 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 do not want to listen to any of that noise. If they don’t prove it, it means 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 attorney. You want a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Parkville.
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.
You should also be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has practically nothing to do with the specific performance of the individual attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that should you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Parkville are obviously not going to create testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI attorney who has no necessary information about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not let you know how good or affordable any attorney actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce attorney 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 attorney through 1-800-DIVORCE, but let’s face it, if you have an uncontested divorce, you WANT a cheap divorce lawyer.
You’ll also realize that many 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 letting you know, “Hey, we do a|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 Parkville divorce lawyer to grab the phone to you when she’s just been focusing on a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So right now, 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 Parkville divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some type of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney tells you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it could not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Parkville. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Parkville divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate 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 is reasonable to believe that just how 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 how each attorney positions and promotes their own law practice is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney 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 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 is a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the most effective family law brand in the whole world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Parkville? How about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to possess a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the type 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 blends in with all other divorce attorney in Hartford County. You want a lawyer who handles his or her own law practice business creatively because that means s/he will look after your interests in the same manner.
