You will find way too many divorce attorneys in Maitland. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Maitland Florida and click Search. You’ll see an extended list of divorce attorneys in and near Maitland.
You’ll realize that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all let you know within their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “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 internet sites 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 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 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 savvy legal advertisement 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 Maitland.
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 actual 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 founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that should you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Maitland are obviously not going to write testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI attorney who has no necessary knowledge about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not 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.
Additionally you will realize that a number of these 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 telling you, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You will want divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Maitland 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 today, 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 Maitland 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 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, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Maitland. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Maitland divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find 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 assume that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their own businesses will be the way s/he handles the problems and challenges in your case.
People generally bring the exact 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 would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney 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 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 this lawyer.
So what is a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the most effective 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 Maitland? How about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to possess one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re searching for?
You don’t want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you don’t want to go with some me-too attorney who just blends in with every other divorce attorney in Orange County. Instead, you want a lawyer who represents himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will handle your divorce in the same manner.
But there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best divorce marketing brand in the world. Think 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 more cases than their local competitors. Lawyers who handle many divorce cases tend to become better at handling divorces than their local competitors. You want a busy divorce attorney who is experienced in family law and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost-effectiveness component. The brand provides 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced cost of case acquisition than their local competitors pay. That means your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney is LIKELY to charge lower fees.
Many also offer flat fee unbundled services such as a document review package, where you will not only have your complete cost up-front but also pay only for the legal services your situation actually requires.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial consultations.
But maybe the best financial indicator for you to take advantage of is that due to the memorability of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you be saying to a friend or relative who is in need of similar help in the future? You’ll just say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a free case. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney for years to come. S/he WANTS that free business.
Your 1-800-DIVORCE referrals are what bring your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer’s cost of case acquisition 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.
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 very good job done in your divorce.
Only a good job will lead to future referrals. And you don’t have to be nasty or mean about that fact. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney will know it’s true. Be sure to tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney did not have 1-800-DIVORCE, how would you refer people 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.
