There are so many divorce lawyers in Hanahan. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Hanahan South Carolina and click Search. You’ll see an extended listing of divorce lawyers in and near Hanahan.
You’ll notice that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They will 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 to the web sites of these lawyers , 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 tell you 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, this 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 lawyer. You need an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Hanahan.
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 remember that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has absolutely nothing to do with the specific performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the little information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Hanahan are obviously not going to write testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI lawyer who does not have any necessary understanding of the lawyer 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 lawyer about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t let you know how good or affordable any lawyer actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce lawyer 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 lawyer through 1-800-DIVORCE, but let’s face it, if you have an uncontested divorce, you WANT a cheap divorce lawyer.
You’ll also notice that many of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You might 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 suggesting, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Hanahan 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 very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So today, as you read this, only you know what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Hanahan divorce lawyer who demonstrates to you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer informs you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it might not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Hanahan. No one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Hanahan divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to locate 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 is reasonable to think that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their 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 how each lawyer positions and promotes his or her own law practice is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to take care of your own legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their own business interests?
So look carefully at each lawyer. 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’s an example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the very best family law brand in the whole world? How about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Hanahan? How about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to have a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
You don’t need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . And you don’t need to hire a non-descript lawyer who simply blends in with every other divorce lawyer in Berkeley County. You need a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business decisively because that means s/he will look after your divorce the same way.
However, there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard family law marketing brand in the world. Think also about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.

Most 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers also offer free initial consultations.
However, perhaps the best financial factor for you to consider is that because of the memorability of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral bonanza. What will you say to a friend or relative who needs the same legal assistance in the future? You’ll just be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a free case. That and all of your other 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 case acquisition cost 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.
