You will find so many divorce attorneys in El Paso. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter El Paso Texas and click Search. You’ll see an extended listing of divorce attorneys in and near El Paso.
You’ll notice that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all let you know inside their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click to the websites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. All of them have 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 hear 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 savvy legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You want a lawyer of proven higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in El Paso.
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 remember that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the particular performance of the individual attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in El Paso are obviously not going to write testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI attorney who doesn’t have necessary knowledge 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 doesn’t 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 can also notice 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|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your El Paso 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 understand what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local El Paso divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some type 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 El Paso. No-one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best El Paso divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate 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 believe that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their own businesses will 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 is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to handle your personal legal and economic interests when they do not 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? What about a divorce attorney who has seized the best family law brand in the world? What about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in El Paso? What about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to possess a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re looking for?
So you do not want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you do not want to hire some non-descript attorney who simply blends in with all other divorce attorney in El Paso County. You want a lawyer who handles himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will handle your interests in the same manner.
