There are so many divorce lawyers in Middletown. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Middletown Ohio and click Search. You’ll get a very long list of divorce lawyers in and near Middletown.
You’ll realize that all those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all inform you within their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click to web sites of these 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 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 never want to know 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 very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You want a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Middletown.
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 absolutely nothing 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 kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Middletown are obviously not going to publish testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI attorney who doesn’t have necessary understanding of the attorney 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 attorney about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not inform 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 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 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 many 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 want a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You never want your Middletown 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 know what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Middletown divorce attorney who shows you some type 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 might be accurate, but it might not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Middletown. No one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Middletown divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate 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’s reasonable to believe that the way in which 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 exactly the 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 would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to deal with your own 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 phony 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’s a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the best family law brand in the world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Middletown?
