How To Use 1-800-DIVORCE To Find the Best Divorce Attorney Near Me?
Avoid the Local Me-Too Attorney Crowd
There are way too many local divorce attorneys! They all look the same. They all sound the same. They all have the same me-too cookie-cutter websites and they all stand in line at Avvo and LegalZoom.
However, none of them can prove any such claim to you. They just expect you to believe them without proof. “Please hire me. I’m a great divorce attorney.”
So how can you find the best divorce attorney near me? By looking at how they handle their own businesses! Why? Because that’s exactly how they’ll handle your case.
You do not want a divorce attorney to look after your future legal and economic interests if s/he does not even look after his or her own business interests. You do not want a divorce attorney who’s worried about his car payment.
Your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney has clinched the best family law brand in the world for his or her exclusive business use in your area. 1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney a LOT of divorces at a reduced case acquisition cost.
You want an attorney who handles only divorce and a lot of it. You’re looking for a DIVORCE ATTORNEY WHO ACTUALLY STANDS OUT FROM THE LOCAL ATTORNEY-CROWD. 1-800-DIVORCE is your clue. There is only one 1-800-DIVORCE attorney in your town.
Acquiring 1-800-DIVORCE was a wise move for that 1-800-DIVORCE attorney. That proves to you that your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is a bold, decisive, creative, savvy problem-solver. S/he’s not just telling you. S/he’s showing you.
Isn’t that the creativity and problem-solving you’re looking for in the best divorce attorney near me?
Avoid the “Jack-of-All-Trades” Lawyer
Most local divorce attorneys near me will have only a “jack-of-all-trades” website and free accounts at Avvo and other lead-generation companies. They advertise for divorce, criminal law, personal injury law, immigration and everything else.
They try to get ANY kind of legal work. “Hey, we do a little bit of everything, you know.”
You DO NOT WANT a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney who gets one divorce case every couple of months like all other local me-too attorneys. Let your spouse have that attorney.
“Jack-of-all-trades” attorneys must charge you a LOT because you’re one of very few divorce clients. They are NOT the best divorce attorneys near me.
“Jack-of-all-trades” attorneys are not experienced enough in divorce. Divorce and family law are specialized areas, just like all other areas of law. “Jack-of-all-trades” attorneys are NOT the best divorce attorneys near me.
You do not want your divorce attorney to pick up the phone to speak to you about your divorce after s/he’s been working on a DWI defense or a car wreck case all morning. Those are completely different types of law practice with completely different mindsets.
Take Advantage of the Referral Game in Your Divorce
Divorce referrals are good for everyone. The friend or colleague who gets your future divorce referral has a good idea about how a divorce attorney will perform from someone who already knows. You get the satisfaction of helping a friend in need. And referral business is GOLD to divorce attorneys. It is free business for the divorce attorney.
But obviously they have to do a good job for you to get your future referral business. And those former clients must have a way to get their referrals to the attorney.
Right now, divorce attorney referrals to your friends are probably the furthest thing from your mind, but don’t miss the boat on this consideration. It can really help to get you the best performance from your divorce attorney and the best possible result in your divorce or other family law case.
Your divorce attorney will value your future referrals, and you should too.
One of the reasons your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney signed up to become the exclusive 1-800-DIVORCE attorney in your town is that 1-800-DIVORCE brings LOTS of free referrals from prior satisfied clients.
In other words, 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys are very likely to be among the best divorce attorneys near me, but referrals from prior clients like you is the way that your divorce attorney will remain among the best divorce attorneys near me.
In many situations where divorce attorneys have done a fine job for a client but don’t have 1-800-DIVORCE, they don’t get any referrals because the prior client will forget their name or more likely forget and not be able to find their phone number or email. These things are easily forgotten over a very short period of time.
But when your divorce attorney was 1-800-DIVORCE, how can you forget that? 1-800-DIVORCE will ALWAYS be your referral path back to that attorney. If you found your attorney through the Avvo or LegalZoom or Rocket Lawyer crapshoot, you will already have forgotten her name. All you can do is tell your friend to go to Avvo. Great! How does that help? Your friend will just have to spin the roulette wheel, like you did. That’s not a referral at all.
So it is not a bad idea for you, politely and quietly, but firmly and seriously, to mention up front to your divorce attorney that you have many friends and colleagues and that at least some of them will need family law services in the future. 1-800-DIVORCE will be great to refer them to your attorney.
Your divorce attorney will understand what you mean. It will help to adjust the balance of power between you and further assure that you get the best effort you paid for.
You are hoping for the best possible outcome in your case and your divorce attorney is hoping for your future referrals through 1-800-DIVORCE. It’s a good bargain. Take advantage.
Oh yeah. And You’ll NEVER Forget Your Divorce Attorney’s Phone Number!
But there’s more! In the future, whenever a friend, colleague or relative needs similar assistance, you won’t be saying to them, “My divorce lawyer was great. I can’t remember his name but he has an office somewhere in town. I’ll try to find his email.” Instead, you will be able say one thing, “Just call 1-800-DIVORCE. That’s what I did!”
