There are way too many divorce lawyers in Socorro. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Socorro Texas and click Search. You’ll see a very long list of divorce lawyers in and near Socorro.
You’ll realize that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all inform you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click right through to the internet sites of these lawyers , 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 never want to hear 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 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 Socorro.
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 particular performance of the individual lawyer. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that if you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Socorro 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 lawyer who does not have any necessary understanding of the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not 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 can also 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|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You never want your Socorro divorce lawyer to grab the phone 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 know what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Socorro divorce lawyer who shows you some kind 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 form of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it may not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce lawyer in Socorro. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Socorro divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to find 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’s reasonable to think that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their very 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 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 deal with your own 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 is no dynamic or creative insight or spark in this lawyer.
So what’s an example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the best family law brand in the whole world? How about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Socorro? How about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to possess a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
You don’t want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you don’t want to go with a me-too lawyer who just blends in with every other divorce lawyer in El Paso County. Instead, you want a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business creatively because that means s/he will handle your interests in the same manner.
However, there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard family law marketing brand on the planet. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer many more divorces than their competitors. Lawyers who handle many divorces are usually better at handling divorces than their local competitors. You definitely want a busy divorce lawyer who is well-versed in divorce and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has an affordability factor. It provides 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a lower cost of case acquisition than their lawyer competitors mustpay. This means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is MUCH MORE LIKELY to request lower fees.
Many also have fixed fee unbundled service packages like a case review legal services offering, where you will not only know your total fee up-front but also pay only for the services your situation actually needs.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
However, maybe the best financial factor for you to consider is that because of the memorability of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral bonanza. What will you say to a friend or relative who needs the same legal assistance in the future? You’ll be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a free case. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) will be free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for years to come. S/he 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 will get 2, 3, 6 divorces 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.
So take advantage. Make sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer understands that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you expect to have a real good job done in your divorce.
Only a great job will bring those free referrals. You don’t have to be nasty or mean about that reality. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer will know it’s true. Tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer did not have 1-800-DIVORCE, how would you refer friends and colleagues to him or her. You’ll forget his or her name and you’ll lose his or her email address. In 2 or 5 years, you’ll never remember, but you’ll never forget 1-800-DIVORCE.
