There are far too many divorce lawyers in Heritage Hills. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Heritage Hills South Carolina and click Search. You’ll see a very long listing of divorce lawyers in and near Heritage Hills.
You’ll observe that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click to the web sites of these 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 never want to hear any of that noise. If they don’t prove it, it indicates nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Heritage Hills.
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 practically nothing to do with the actual performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that should you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Heritage Hills 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 a local 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 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.
Additionally you will observe that several divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You could have found them on Avvo’s divorce page, but a number 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|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You never want your Heritage Hills 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 today, as you read this, only you understand what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Heritage Hills divorce attorney who demonstrates to 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 type of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it might 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 Heritage Hills. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Heritage Hills divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find 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’s reasonable to think that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the difficulties and challenges in their own businesses would be the way s/he handles the difficulties 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 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 take care of your own personal legal and economic interests when they do not 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’s no dynamic or creative insight or spark in such a lawyer.
So what’s a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the best 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 Heritage Hills? How about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to possess one single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
