There are far too many divorce attorneys in Osceola. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Osceola Virginia and click Search. You’ll get a lengthy list of divorce attorneys in and near Osceola.
You’ll observe that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all let you know in their short identical Avvo blurbs 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 websites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. Each of them have the exact same cookie-cutter websites.
Each of them look and sound the same. Each 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 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 attorney. You want a lawyer of proven higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Osceola.
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 nothing at all to do with the particular performance of the individual attorney. It is 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 little information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Osceola are obviously not going to publish testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI attorney who has no necessary knowledge about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t let you know 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 will also observe that a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You may 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|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 Osceola 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 very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So at this time, as you read this, only you understand what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Osceola divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney informs you about himself or herself. That type of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it might not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Osceola. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Osceola 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 is reasonable to think that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very own businesses would 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 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 handle your own personal legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each attorney. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a fake 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 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 Osceola? How about a divorce attorney who’s 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 looking for?
So you don’t want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you don’t want to hire a non-descript attorney who just stands in line with all other divorce attorney in Washington County. You want a lawyer who represents himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will handle your case the same way.
