There are way too many divorce attorneys in Hillside. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Hillside Pennsylvania and click Search. You’ll get a very long list of divorce attorneys in and near Hillside.
You’ll notice that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all inform you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “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 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 do not want to know any of that noise. If they don’t 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 a lawyer of proven higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Hillside.
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 actual performance of the individual lawyer. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that lawyer. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that if you hover over the little information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Hillside 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 a nearby 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 as a swap for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t 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 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 can also notice that several divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You might 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 letting you know, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Hillside divorce lawyer to grab the phone to you when she’s just been taking care of 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 in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Hillside divorce lawyer who shows you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their 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 may be accurate, but it may not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce lawyer in Hillside. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Hillside 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’s reasonable to assume that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their own businesses will 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 lawyer positions and promotes their 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 personal legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their 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’s 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 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 Hillside? What about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to have one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re searching for?
You don’t need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you don’t need to hire a non-descript lawyer who just blends in with all other divorce lawyer in Lehigh County. Instead, you need a lawyer who handles himself or herself boldly because that means s/he will handle your divorce in the same manner.
