There are so many divorce lawyers in Fairfield. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Fairfield Louisiana and click Search. You’ll get a lengthy listing of divorce lawyers in and near Fairfield.
You’ll notice that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all inform you within their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click right through to the internet sites of those 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 don’t really prove it, it 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 lawyer. You want an attorney of proven higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Fairfield.
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 absolutely nothing to do with the particular performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that lawyer. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the little information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Fairfield 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 a nearby DUI lawyer who has no necessary knowledge about the lawyer 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 lawyer about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t inform 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.
You will also notice that a number 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 telling you, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You will want divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Fairfield divorce lawyer to grab the telephone to you when she’s just been working on a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So today, as you read this, only you understand what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Fairfield divorce lawyer who demonstrates to you some sort 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 type of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it might not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce lawyer in Fairfield. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Fairfield 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 is reasonable to assume that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very own businesses would be the way s/he handles the problems 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 lawyer 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 lawyer to take care of your personal legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each lawyer. 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 such a lawyer.
So what is a good 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 Fairfield? What about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to possess one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re looking for?
So you don’t want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you don’t want to hire some non-descript lawyer who simply stands in line with every other divorce lawyer in Caddo Parish. 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.
