There are way too many divorce lawyers in Marana. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Marana Arizona and click Search. You’ll see a lengthy listing of divorce lawyers in and near Marana.
You’ll realize that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you in their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click through to the internet sites of these lawyers , that won’t help either. They all have the same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all 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 do not prove it, it means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Marana.
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 lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Marana are obviously not going to publish testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI lawyer who does not have any necessary understanding of the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not tell you how good or affordable any lawyer actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce lawyer providing your divorce is uncontested. Cheap divorce lawyers tend to be good divorce lawyers 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.
Additionally you will realize that many of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You may 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 do not want your Marana divorce lawyer to grab the telephone 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 right now, as you read this, only you realize what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Marana divorce lawyer who shows you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her 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 could be accurate, but it might not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce lawyer in Marana. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Marana divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to find 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 is reasonable to think that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the difficulties and challenges in their own businesses would 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 just how each lawyer positions and promotes his or her own law practice would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to handle your own personal 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’s no dynamic or creative insight or spark in such a lawyer.
So what is an example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce lawyer who has seized the most effective family law brand in the whole world? What about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Marana? What about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to have a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
So you do not want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . And you do not want to go with some non-descript lawyer who just stands in line with all other divorce lawyer in Pima County. Instead, you want a lawyer who represents himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will look after your interests in the same manner.
