There are way too many divorce attorneys in Northgate. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Northgate South Carolina and click Search. You’ll see a lengthy list of divorce attorneys in and near Northgate.
You’ll realize that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all inform you inside 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 right through to the web 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 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 listen to any of that noise. If they don’t prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want a lawyer of proven higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Northgate.
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 specific performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that lawyer. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that should you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Northgate are obviously not going to write testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI lawyer who does not have any necessary information about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about his or her 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 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 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 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 telling you, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Northgate divorce lawyer to pick up 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 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 Northgate divorce lawyer who shows you some type 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 type of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it may not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Northgate. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Northgate divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce lawyer? Look at how each divorce lawyer 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 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 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 is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to handle your personal legal and economic interests when they do not 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 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? 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 Northgate? What about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to have one single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re searching for?
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 simply blends in with all other divorce lawyer in Greenville County. You want a lawyer who represents himself or herself boldly because that means s/he will look after your interests in the same manner.
However, there’s more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard divorce marketing brand on the planet. Think also about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.

However, perhaps the foremost financial factor for you to consider is that because of the memorability of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral bonanza.

They looked after me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a free case. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for many years to come. S/he badly 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 may 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.
