There are way too many divorce attorneys in South Tucson. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter South Tucson Arizona and click Search. You’ll get an extended listing of divorce attorneys in and near South Tucson.
You’ll observe that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all let you know in 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 right through to the web sites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. They all have the exact same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all 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 do not 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 need an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in South Tucson.
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 wise 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 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 if you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in South Tucson are obviously not going to write testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI attorney who doesn’t have necessary information about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about his or her 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.
You’ll also observe that a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You could have found them on Avvo’s divorce page, but a number of these lawyers also handle bankruptcy, DUI, personal injury, crime, car-wreck, immigration, social security disability, etc. They’re suggesting, “Hey, we do a|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You will want divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your South Tucson divorce lawyer to pick up the phone 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 realize what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local South Tucson divorce attorney 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 attorney tells you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it might not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in South Tucson. No-one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best South Tucson 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 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 exact same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So how each attorney positions and promotes his or her own law practice will be a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to deal with 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 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’s a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the 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 South Tucson? How about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to have a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re searching for?
So you do not need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you do not need to hire a me-too attorney who simply blends in with all other divorce attorney in Pima County. 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.
