There are far too many divorce attorneys in Grafton. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Grafton New Hampshire and click Search. You’ll see a lengthy list of divorce attorneys in and near Grafton.
You’ll realize that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “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 these attorneys , that won’t help either. They all have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all 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 do not prove it, it 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 need an attorney of proven higher quality to look after your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Grafton.
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 believe, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Grafton are obviously not going to create testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI attorney who does not have any necessary knowledge about the attorney 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 attorney about his / her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t tell 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 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 letting you know, “Hey, we do a|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You will want divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Grafton divorce lawyer to grab the telephone to you when she’s just been focusing 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 involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Grafton divorce attorney who shows you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his / her 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 may not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Grafton. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Grafton 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 think that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their very own businesses would be the way s/he handles the issues 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 his / her own law practice will be 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 is a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce attorney who has seized the very best family law brand in the world? What about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Grafton? What about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to have a single word as his / her brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re trying to find?
So you do not need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you do not need to hire a me-too attorney who just stands in line with all other divorce attorney in Grafton County. Instead, you need a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business decisively because that means s/he will handle your interests the same way.
