You will find way too many divorce attorneys in Merrimack. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Merrimack New Hampshire and click Search. You’ll see a very long listing of divorce attorneys in and near Merrimack.
You’ll notice that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all let you know in 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.
If you click right through to the internet 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 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 do not want to know any of that noise. If they do not prove it, this 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 lawyer. You need a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to look after your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Merrimack.
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 know that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all 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 kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Merrimack are obviously not going to create 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 lawyer who does not have any necessary knowledge about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t 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 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 lawyer through 1-800-DIVORCE, but let’s face it, if you have an uncontested divorce, you WANT a cheap divorce lawyer.
You’ll also notice that a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You might 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 lawyer who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Merrimack divorce lawyer to pick up the phone 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 today, as you read this, only you realize what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Merrimack divorce lawyer who shows you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her 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 might be accurate, but it might not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Merrimack. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Merrimack divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to locate YOUR divorce lawyer? Look at how each divorce lawyer 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 believe that the way in which 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 lawyer positions and promotes his or her own law practice is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to deal with 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 is 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? 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 Merrimack? What about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to possess a single word as his or her 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 do not need to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you do not need to go with a me-too lawyer who just blends in with every other divorce lawyer in Hillsborough County. You need a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business boldly because that means s/he will look after your divorce the same way.
But there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best divorce marketing brand on the planet. 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 cases than their local competitors. Lawyers who handle many divorces are usually better at it than their local competitors. You want a busy divorce lawyer who is well-versed 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 lower case acquisition cost than their competitors pay. That means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is LIKELY to charge lower fees.
Many also offer flat fee unbundled services like a document review legal services offering, where you will not only know your total cost up-front but also pay only for the services your situation actually requires.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial consultations.
But perhaps the best financial factor for you to consider is that because of the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you be saying to a friend or relative who is in need of the same legal assistance in the future? You’ll be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for many years to come. S/he badly 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 use that knowledge to your advantage. Make 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 want a very good job done in your case.
Only a great job will lead to future referrals. And you do not have to be nasty or mean about that reality. 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.
