There are so many divorce attorneys in Mill Creek. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Mill Creek Pennsylvania and click Search. You’ll get an extended listing of divorce attorneys in and near Mill Creek.
You’ll notice that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all tell you within their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click through to the websites of those attorneys , 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 do not 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 savvy legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need a lawyer of proven higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Mill Creek.
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 absolutely nothing to do with the actual performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that should you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Mill Creek are obviously not going to create testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI attorney who has no necessary information about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer as a swap for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not 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 will also notice that many of these 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 attorney who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Mill Creek divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone 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 at this time, as you read this, only you understand what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Mill Creek divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some type of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their 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 might be accurate, but it could not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Mill Creek. No one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Mill Creek 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 the way in which 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 exactly the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So how each attorney positions and promotes their own law practice would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to take care of your own 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 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 a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the best family law brand in the world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Mill Creek? How about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to possess a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re searching for?
So you do not need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you do not need to hire some me-too attorney who just blends in with every other divorce attorney in Philadelphia County. You need a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business creatively because that means s/he will handle your interests the same way.
