There are far too many divorce attorneys in Wellington. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Wellington Indiana and click Search. You’ll get a lengthy listing of divorce attorneys in and near Wellington.
You’ll notice that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all let you know within their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click through to the web sites of these 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 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 never want to listen to any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need a lawyer of proven higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Wellington.
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.
You should also be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the specific performance of the individual attorney. It is 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 informs you that should you hover over the little information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Wellington are obviously not going to write 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 does not have any necessary understanding of 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 doesn’t let you know 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 several 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’ll need a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You never want your Wellington 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 very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So at this time, as you read this, only you understand what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Wellington divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some kind 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 could 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 attorney in Wellington. No one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Wellington divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find 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 is reasonable to think that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the difficulties and challenges in their very own businesses will be the way s/he handles the difficulties 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 is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to take care of your own personal legal and economic interests when they do not 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 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? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the very 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 Wellington? How about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to possess one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re trying to find?
You do not need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you do not need to hire a non-descript attorney who just stands in line with every other divorce attorney in Marion County. Instead, you need a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business creatively because that means s/he will look after your interests in the same manner.
However, there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the premier family law marketing brand in the world. Think also about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney many more divorces than their competitors. Lawyers who handle many divorce cases tend to become better at it than their local competitors. You definitely want a busy divorce attorney who is well-versed in family law and understands the intricacies of divorce.
1-800-DIVORCE also has an affordability component. It provides 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced case acquisition cost than their local competitors pay. This means your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney is MUCH MORE LIKELY to request lower fees.
Many also have flat fee a la carte service packages like a document review package, where you will not only know your total cost up-front but also pay only for the legal services your situation actually needs.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
However, maybe the best financial indicator for you to take advantage of is that due to the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral bonanza. What will you say to a friend or relative who is in need of the same legal assistance in the future? You’ll just say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) will be the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney 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 attorney knows that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you want a real good job done in your divorce.
Only a good job will lead to future referrals. You do not have to be nasty or mean about that reality. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney will know it’s true. Tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney didn’t 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.
