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 of those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all let you know within 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 web sites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. They all have the 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 don’t want to know any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, it means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You want an attorney of proven higher quality to look after your legal and economic 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.
It’s also advisable to remember that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the particular performance of the individual attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the little information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Parkville are obviously not going to write testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different 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 as a swap for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t 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 can also realize that several 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 want a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Parkville divorce lawyer to pick up the phone 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 today, as you read this, only you realize what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Parkville divorce attorney who shows 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 could be accurate, but it may not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Parkville. No one knows who that is anyway. You’ll 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 think that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very own businesses would be the way s/he handles the problems 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 attorney positions and promotes his or her own law practice would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to deal with your own personal legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each attorney. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a phony 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? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the most effective 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 Parkville? How about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to possess a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re trying to find?
You do not want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you do not want to hire a me-too attorney who simply blends in with every other divorce attorney in Hartford County. You want a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business boldly because that means s/he will handle your divorce the same way.
But there’s more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best family law marketing brand in the world. Think also about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney many more divorces than their competitors. Lawyers who handle many divorce cases tend to become better at it than their local competitors. You want a busy divorce attorney who is experienced in divorce and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has an affordability factor. It brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced cost of case acquisition than their competitors mustpay. That means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney is MUCH MORE LIKELY to charge lower fees.
Many also have flat fee unbundled services like a case review package, where you will not only have your complete fee up-front but also pay only for the legal services your situation actually needs.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
But maybe the best economic indicator for you to take advantage of is that due to the memorability of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you say to a friend or relative who is in need of the same legal assistance in the future? You’ll be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney for many years to come. S/he 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 will get 2, 3, 6 divorces 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 use that knowledge to your advantage. Be sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney understands that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you expect to have a real good job done in your divorce.
Only a great job will bring those free referrals. You do not have to be nasty or mean about that reality. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney will know it’s true. Be sure to tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney did not have 1-800-DIVORCE, how would you refer people 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.
