There are way too many divorce attorneys in Bethany. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Bethany Oklahoma and click Search. You’ll get an extended list of divorce attorneys in and near Bethany.
You’ll notice that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They will 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 right through to the internet sites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. All of them have the exact 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 never want to listen to any of that noise. If they do not prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want a lawyer of proven higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Bethany.
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 specific performance of the individual lawyer. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any type 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 attorneys in Bethany 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 does not have any necessary information about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t tell 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 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 lawyer through 1-800-DIVORCE, but let’s face it, if you have an uncontested divorce, you WANT a cheap divorce lawyer.
You will also notice that many of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You may 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 suggesting, “Hey, we do a|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You never want your Bethany 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 very 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 Bethany divorce lawyer who demonstrates to you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer informs you about himself or herself. That type of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it may not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Bethany. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Bethany divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to locate 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 believe that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very own businesses would be the way s/he handles the problems 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 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 bogus 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’s a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce lawyer who has seized the most effective family law brand in the world? What about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Bethany? What about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to possess one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re searching for?
You don’t want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you don’t want to hire a non-descript lawyer who simply stands in line with all other divorce lawyer in Oklahoma County. Instead, you want a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business creatively because that means s/he will look after your case in the same manner.
However, there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard 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.

You definitely want a busy divorce lawyer who is well-versed in divorce and understands the intricacies of divorce.
1-800-DIVORCE also has an affordability component. It provides 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced case acquisition cost than their competitors pay. That means your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is MUCH MORE LIKELY to charge lower fees.

Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
However, perhaps the best financial factor for you to take advantage of is that due to the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. 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 looked after me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a free case. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) will be 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 case acquisition cost way down. They may 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. 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 want a very good job done in your case.
Only a good job will lead to future referrals. And 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 didn’t 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.

Uncontested divorces are those in which both spouses agree they want a divorce and that neither spouse will fight the case or any of its component issues, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In most instances, the court process for uncontested divorces can be finalized much sooner than for fought divorces.
You could file for divorce believing the case will be uncontested, but discover later that your spouse has decided to contest. This does not happen often, but it happens.
You should ask your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer concerning the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. These are not suitable in ALL uncontested divorces.
The main factor in an uncontested divorce is to have an experienced and cost-effective lawyer on your side from the very beginning in case your uncontested divorce blows up or requires additional family law assistance.
