There are far too many divorce attorneys in Lockhart. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Lockhart Florida and click Search. You’ll get a lengthy listing of divorce attorneys in and near Lockhart.
You’ll notice that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all let you know inside their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click to the websites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. Each of them have the 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 don’t want to listen to 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 savvy marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Lockhart.
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 believe, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Lockhart are obviously not going to write testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI lawyer who has no necessary information about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t let you know 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 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 lawyer who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Lockhart 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 different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So at this time, as you read this, only you understand what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Lockhart divorce lawyer who shows you some type of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer tells you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it might not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Lockhart. No-one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Lockhart 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 think that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their own businesses would be the way s/he handles the problems and challenges in your case.
People generally bring the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So how each lawyer 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 lawyer to deal with your own legal and economic interests when they don’t 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 is no dynamic or creative insight or spark in this lawyer.
So what is an example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce lawyer who has seized the very best family law brand in the world? What about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Lockhart? What about a divorce lawyer who’s 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 lawyer you’re trying to find?
So you don’t want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . And you don’t want to hire some me-too lawyer who simply blends in with all other divorce lawyer in Orange County. You want a lawyer who represents himself or herself boldly because that means s/he will look after your interests the same way.
However, there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard divorce marketing brand on the planet. Think also about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer many more divorces than their local competitors. Lawyers who handle a lot of divorces are usually better at handling divorces than their local competitors. You want a busy divorce lawyer who is experienced in family law and understands the intricacies of divorce.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost-effectiveness factor. The brand brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced case acquisition cost than their competitors pay. This means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is MUCH MORE LIKELY to charge lower fees.

Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial consultations.
However, maybe the best economic factor 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 be saying to a friend or relative who needs similar help in the future? You’ll 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. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) will be the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for many years to come. S/he 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 will get 2, 3, 6 divorce cases 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.

If your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer did not 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.

Uncontested divorces are divorces in which both parties agree that they want to dissolve their marriage and that neither spouse will contest the case or any of its issues.
In many instances, the court process for uncontested divorces can be finalized in a much shorter time than in contested divorces.
You might file for divorce thinking that the proceeding will be uncontested, but discover later that your spouse has decided to contest. This doesn’t happen frequently, but it happens.
You will want to ask your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer about the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. Bear in mind that these are not suitable in ALL uncontested divorces.
