There are far too many divorce attorneys in Mantua. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Mantua Virginia and click Search. You’ll get an extended list of divorce attorneys in and near Mantua.
You’ll observe that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you in 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.
If you click to web sites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. All of them have the exact same cookie-cutter websites.
All of them look and sound the same. All of them inform you 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 know any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, it means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You want a lawyer of proven higher quality to look after your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Mantua.
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 practically nothing to do with the specific performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that if you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Mantua are obviously not going to publish 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 attorney who doesn’t have necessary knowledge about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade 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 can also observe that several divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You could 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|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Mantua divorce lawyer to pick up the phone to you when she’s just been taking care of 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 with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Mantua divorce attorney who shows you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney tells 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 searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Mantua. No one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Mantua divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney handles his / her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It’s reasonable to believe 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 their 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’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 very best family law brand in the whole world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Mantua? How about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to have a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re searching for?
So you don’t want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you don’t want to hire some me-too attorney who simply blends in with all other divorce attorney in Fairfax County. Instead, you want a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business boldly because that means s/he will handle your case the same way.
