There are far too many divorce lawyers in North Londonderry. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter North Londonderry New Hampshire and click Search. You’ll see an extended listing of divorce lawyers in and near North Londonderry.
You’ll observe that all those lawyers look and sound the same. They will all inform you within their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click to the websites of those 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 tell you 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 do not prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You need an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in North Londonderry.
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 be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has absolutely nothing to do with the particular performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the little information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in North Londonderry are obviously not going to write testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local 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 in trade for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not inform you 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 observe that many of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You could 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 telling you, “Hey, we do a|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You will want divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your North Londonderry 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 different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So right now, 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 North Londonderry divorce lawyer who demonstrates to 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 type of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it may not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in North Londonderry. No-one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best North Londonderry divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to find 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 assume that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their very own businesses will be the way s/he handles the issues and challenges in your case.
People generally bring the exact 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 take care of your own personal legal and economic interests when they don’t 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 this lawyer.
So what’s a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the very best family law brand in the world? How about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in North Londonderry? How about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to have one single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
So you do not need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you do not need to hire a non-descript lawyer who simply stands in line with all other divorce lawyer in Rockingham County. Instead, you need a lawyer who handles himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will look after your divorce the same way.
