There are far too many divorce attorneys in Terrytown. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Terrytown Louisiana and click Search. You’ll see a lengthy listing of divorce attorneys in and near Terrytown.
You’ll realize that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you in their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click to the websites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. They all have the exact same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all inform you 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 listen to any of that noise. If they do not prove it, it means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to look after your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Terrytown.
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 know that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the actual performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Terrytown are obviously not going to publish testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI attorney who doesn’t have 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 an equally 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 could 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|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 Terrytown divorce lawyer to pick up the phone to you when she’s just been working 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 know what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Terrytown divorce attorney who demonstrates to 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 tells you about himself or herself. That type of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it could not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Terrytown. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Terrytown divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney handles his / 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 the way business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their own businesses will be the way s/he handles the problems and challenges in your case.
People generally bring the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So 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 handle your own legal and economic interests when they don’t 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 is 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? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the very best family law brand in the whole world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Terrytown? How about a divorce attorney who’s 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 searching for?
You don’t need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you don’t need to hire a non-descript attorney who simply blends in with every other divorce attorney in Jefferson Parish. Instead, you need a lawyer who handles himself or herself boldly because that means s/he will look after your case the same way.
