You will find so many divorce lawyers in Derry. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Derry New Hampshire and click Search. You’ll get an extended list of divorce lawyers in and near Derry.
You’ll notice that all of 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 right through to web sites of these lawyers , that won’t help either. All of them have exactly the 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 listen to any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, it means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Derry.
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 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 dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that if you hover over the little information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Derry are obviously not going to write testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI attorney who doesn’t have 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 his or her 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 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 will also notice that several 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|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Derry divorce lawyer to pick up 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 at this time, as you read this, only you realize what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Derry divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some kind 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 form of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it could not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Derry. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Derry divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate 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 is reasonable to assume that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their own businesses would be the way s/he handles the issues and challenges in your case.

Why would you hire a attorney to deal with 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 this lawyer.
So what’s a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce attorney who has seized the best family law brand in the whole world?
