There are far too many divorce lawyers in Northdale. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Northdale Louisiana and click Search. You’ll see an extended listing of divorce lawyers in and near Northdale.
You’ll notice that all those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all let you know within their short identical Avvo blurbs that 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 to the web sites of those lawyers , that won’t help either. All of them have the exact same cookie-cutter websites.
All of them look and sound the same. All of them 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 hear any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Northdale.
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 remember that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has absolutely nothing to do with the actual performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that lawyer. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that should you hover over the little information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Northdale are obviously not going to create testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI lawyer who doesn’t have necessary understanding of the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer as a swap for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not let you know 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 a number of these lawyers also handle bankruptcy, DUI, personal injury, crime, car-wreck, immigration, social security disability, etc. They’re suggesting, “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 don’t want your Northdale divorce lawyer to grab the telephone to you when she’s just been working on 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 with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Northdale 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 informs you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It may 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 Northdale. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Northdale 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 is reasonable to think that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very 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 how each lawyer positions and promotes their own law practice will be 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 very own business interests?
So look carefully at each lawyer. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a bogus 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 an example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce lawyer who has seized the very best family law brand in the whole world? What about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Northdale? What about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to have a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the kind 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 a me-too lawyer who just blends in with every other divorce lawyer in East Baton Rouge Parish. You want a lawyer who represents himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will look after your divorce in the same manner.
However, there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best divorce marketing brand in the world. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer more divorces than their competitors. Lawyers who handle many divorce cases are usually better at handling divorces than their local competitors. You definitely want a busy divorce lawyer who is experienced in family law and understands the intricacies of divorce.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost factor. It brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced case acquisition cost than their local lawyer competitors pay. That means your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is LIKELY to request lower fees.
Many also have flat fee unbundled service packages such as a document review package, where you will not only have your complete fee up-front but also pay only for the legal services your case really needs.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
However, maybe the best economic indicator for you to consider is that due to the memorability of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral bonanza. What will you be saying to a friend or relative who needs similar help in the future? You’ll be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a free case. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for years to come. S/he WANTS that free business.
Your 1-800-DIVORCE referrals are what bring your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer’s case acquisition cost way down. They may get 2, 3, 6 divorces for the cost of one (yours). And that’s why they signed up. And you know that, and they know that, and they hope you know that.
So take advantage. Be sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer knows that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you expect to have a real good job done in your divorce.
Only a good job will lead to future referrals. You don’t need to be nasty or mean about that fact. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer will know it’s true. Be sure to tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer did not have 1-800-DIVORCE, how would you refer friends and colleagues to him or her. You’ll forget his or her name and you’ll lose his or her email address. In 2 or 5 years, you’ll never remember, but you’ll never forget 1-800-DIVORCE.
