There are far too many divorce attorneys in Royal Pines. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Royal Pines Louisiana and click Search. You’ll get a very long list of divorce attorneys in and near Royal Pines.
You’ll realize that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you in 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 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 hear 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 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 Royal Pines.
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 know 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 consider, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the little information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Royal Pines 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 an area DUI attorney who does not have any 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 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 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 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 a number 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’ll need a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Royal Pines divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone to you when she’s just been taking care of 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 know what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Royal Pines 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 kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it could not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Royal Pines. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Royal Pines 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 will be the way s/he handles the issues and challenges in your case.
People generally bring the exact 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 is 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 own business interests?
So look carefully at each attorney. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a fake 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’s an 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 Royal Pines? What about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to have one single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re trying to find?
You don’t need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you don’t need to hire a non-descript attorney who just blends in with all other divorce attorney in Ouachita Parish. You need a lawyer who represents himself or herself creatively because that means s/he will handle your interests the same way.
