You will find far too many divorce attorneys in Lyons. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Lyons Illinois and click Search. You’ll get a very long list of divorce attorneys in and near Lyons.
You’ll realize that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you 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.
If you click to the websites of those 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 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 prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You want an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Lyons.
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 know that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has practically nothing to do with the actual performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Lyons are obviously not going to publish testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI attorney who has no necessary information about the attorney 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 attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t tell 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 a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You might 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 letting you know, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Lyons 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 associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Lyons divorce attorney who shows you some type of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney 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, keep in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Lyons. No-one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Lyons divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find 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’s reasonable to think that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the difficulties and challenges in their very own businesses would be the way s/he handles the difficulties 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 just how each attorney positions and promotes their own law practice will be a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to take care of your own legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each attorney. 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 an example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the best 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 Lyons? How about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to have one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
