There are far too many divorce attorneys in Dunean. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Dunean South Carolina and click Search. You’ll see a very long list of divorce attorneys in and near Dunean.
You’ll realize that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all inform you in their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click to web sites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. They all have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all tell you 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 indicates 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 attorney. You need a lawyer of proven higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Dunean.
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 attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Dunean 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 local DUI attorney who does not have any necessary understanding of 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 doesn’t inform you 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 realize that many 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 letting you know, “Hey, we do a|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Dunean 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 today, as you read this, only you know what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Dunean divorce attorney who demonstrates to 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 informs you about himself or herself. That type of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it could not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Dunean. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Dunean 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 is reasonable to assume that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their 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 would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to take care of your own personal legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their own business interests?
So look carefully at each attorney. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a phony 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? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the most effective family law brand in the world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Dunean? How about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to possess 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 attorney you’re searching for?
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 every other divorce attorney in Greenville County. Instead, you need a lawyer who handles himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will look after your divorce in the same manner.
But there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the premier family law marketing brand in the world. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney.

They looked after 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) are the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney for years to come. S/he WANTS that free business.

In almost all instances, the divorce process for uncontested will be finalized much sooner than for contested divorces.
