You will find far too many divorce lawyers in Newtown. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Newtown Virginia and click Search. You’ll get a very long list of divorce lawyers in and near Newtown.
You’ll notice that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all inform you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “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 the web sites of those lawyers , that won’t help either. All of them have the same cookie-cutter websites.
All of them look and sound the same. All 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 listen to any of that noise. If they don’t prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Newtown.
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 be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the specific performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that lawyer. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Newtown are obviously not going to publish testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI lawyer who does not have any necessary knowledge about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not inform 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 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 can 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 many 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 lawyer who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Newtown 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 different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So right now, as you read this, only you understand what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Newtown divorce lawyer who shows 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 kind 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 lawyer in Newtown. No-one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Newtown 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 just how 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 exactly the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So how each lawyer positions and promotes their own law practice would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer 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 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’s no dynamic or creative insight or spark in this lawyer.
So what is a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the most effective family law brand in the whole world?
