There are way too many divorce attorneys in Hamilton. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Hamilton Ohio and click Search. You’ll see an extended list of divorce attorneys in and near Hamilton.
You’ll realize that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all tell you inside 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 to the 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 tell you various almost identical qualities about themselves. The problem is that not one of them can prove a single claim they make. You never want to listen to any of that noise. If they don’t prove it, it means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Hamilton.
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 remember that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has practically nothing to do with the actual performance of the individual lawyer. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Hamilton are obviously not going to create testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various 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 good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade 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 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.
Additionally you will realize 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 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 never want your Hamilton divorce lawyer to grab the phone 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 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 Hamilton divorce lawyer 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 lawyer tells you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it could not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Hamilton. No one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Hamilton divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to locate YOUR divorce lawyer? Look at how each divorce lawyer 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 would be the way s/he handles the problems 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 how each lawyer positions and promotes his or her 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 personal legal and economic interests when they don’t 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 is 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 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 Hamilton? How about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to have a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
So you don’t want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you don’t want to go with some me-too lawyer who just stands in line with all other divorce lawyer in Butler County. Instead, you want a lawyer who handles himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will handle your divorce the same way.
