There are so many divorce attorneys in Manchester. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Manchester Louisiana and click Search. You’ll see a lengthy list of divorce attorneys in and near Manchester.
You’ll realize that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all inform you within their short identical Avvo blurbs 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 exactly the 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 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 attorney. You need a lawyer of proven higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Manchester.
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 absolutely nothing to do with the particular performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that if you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Manchester are obviously not going to create 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 does not have any necessary information about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer as a swap for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t 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 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 can 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 a number 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 will want divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You never want your Manchester divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone 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 today, 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 Manchester divorce attorney who shows you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney tells you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it might not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Manchester. No one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Manchester divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find 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 assume that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their own businesses will 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 just how each attorney 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 attorney to take care of 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’s 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 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 Manchester? How about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to have a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re trying to find?
So you do not need to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you do not need to go with a me-too attorney who just stands in line with every other divorce attorney in Calcasieu Parish. You need a lawyer who handles his or her own law practice business decisively because that means s/he will look after your case the same way.
