You will find so many divorce attorneys in Dellwood. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Dellwood South Carolina and click Search. You’ll get a very long listing of divorce attorneys in and near Dellwood.
You’ll realize that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all inform you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click through to the internet sites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. They all have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all tell you 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 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 proven higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Dellwood.
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 remember that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has practically nothing to do with the particular performance of the individual attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to think, 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 little information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Dellwood 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 an area DUI attorney who doesn’t have necessary understanding of the attorney 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 attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t inform 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 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.
Additionally you will realize 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|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Dellwood 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 understand what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Dellwood divorce attorney who shows you some kind 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 may not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Dellwood. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Dellwood 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 is reasonable to assume that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their own businesses would 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 their 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 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 phony 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 is a good 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 Dellwood? What about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to have a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re trying to find?
You do not need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you do not need to hire a non-descript attorney who just stands in line with all other divorce attorney in Charleston County.
