There are way too many divorce attorneys in Greenwich. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Greenwich Virginia and click Search. You’ll see a very long listing of divorce attorneys in and near Greenwich.
You’ll observe that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click right through to web sites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. Each of them have exactly 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 don’t want to hear 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 lawyer. You need a lawyer of proven higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Greenwich.
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 know that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has practically nothing to do with the particular performance of the individual lawyer. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that should you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Greenwich are obviously not going to publish testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI lawyer who doesn’t have necessary information about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer as a swap for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not tell you how good or affordable any lawyer actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce lawyer 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 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 observe that a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You may 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’ll need a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Greenwich divorce lawyer to grab the telephone to you when she’s just been focusing 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 know what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Greenwich divorce lawyer who demonstrates to you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer tells you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it could not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce lawyer in Greenwich. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Greenwich 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’s reasonable to believe that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very own businesses will 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 lawyer 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 lawyer to handle your own legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each lawyer. 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 is an example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the best family law brand in the world? How about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Greenwich? How about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to possess one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
You do not need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . And you do not need to hire some me-too lawyer who simply blends in with every other divorce lawyer in City of Virginia Beach. Instead, you need a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business decisively because that means s/he will look after your case in the same manner.
However, there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the premier 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.

1-800-DIVORCE also has an affordability factor. The brand brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced case acquisition cost than their competitors pay. That means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is MUCH MORE LIKELY to request lower fees.

However, maybe the best economic factor for you to take advantage of is that due to the memorability of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral bonanza. What will you be saying to a friend or relative who needs similar help 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 case they don’t pay anything for. All of your 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 may 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.

You could sue for divorce thinking that the process should be uncontested, but find later that your spouse has decided to contest. This doesn’t occur frequently, but it does happen.
You will want to ask your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer concerning the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. Bear in mind that these are not appropriate in EVERY uncontested divorce.
