You will find way too many divorce lawyers in Passaic. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Passaic New Jersey and click Search. You’ll get a lengthy listing of divorce lawyers in and near Passaic.
You’ll observe that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They will 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.
In the event that you click through to the web sites of those lawyers , that won’t help either. Each of them have the exact same cookie-cutter websites.
Each of them look and sound the same. Each of them tell you 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 know any of that noise. If they do not prove it, it indicates nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Passaic.
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 be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has practically nothing to do with the specific performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Passaic 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 an area DUI lawyer who doesn’t have necessary information about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about his or her 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.
Additionally you will observe that a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You may 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 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 don’t want your Passaic divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone 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 at this time, as you read this, only you realize what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Passaic divorce lawyer who demonstrates to you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer informs you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it may not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Passaic. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Passaic 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 is reasonable to think that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the difficulties and challenges in their very own businesses will be the way s/he handles the difficulties 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 take care of your personal legal and economic interests when they don’t 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 a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the very best family law brand in the world? How about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Passaic? How about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to have one single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re searching for?
You don’t want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . And you don’t want to go with some non-descript lawyer who just blends in with every other divorce lawyer in Passaic County. You want a lawyer who handles his or her own law practice business decisively because that means s/he will look after your divorce in the same manner.
However, there’s more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the premier family law marketing brand in the world. Think also 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 divorce cases are usually better at handling divorces than their local competitors. You want a busy divorce lawyer who is experienced in family law and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost factor. The brand brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a lower cost of case acquisition than their competitors pay. This means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is LIKELY to request lower fees.
Many also offer flat fee a la carte services like a case review package, where you will not only know your total cost up-front but also pay only for the legal services your divorce really needs.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers also offer free initial consultations.
However, perhaps the best economic indicator for you to consider is that because of the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral bonanza. What will you be saying to a friend or relative who needs similar legal assistance in the future? You’ll be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are the icing on the cake 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 will 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.
So take advantage. Be sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer knows that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you expect to have a very good job done in your case.
Only a great job will bring those free referrals. You don’t have to be nasty or mean about that fact. 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 people 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.
