There are way too many divorce attorneys in Midwest City. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Midwest City Oklahoma and click Search. You’ll get an extended listing of divorce attorneys in and near Midwest City.
You’ll notice that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all let you know inside their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click to web sites of these attorneys , 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 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 don’t want to listen to 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 attorney. You need a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Midwest City.
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 know that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the actual performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the little information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Midwest City are obviously not going to create testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI attorney who doesn’t have necessary knowledge about the attorney 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 attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not let you know 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 notice 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 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’ll need a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Midwest City divorce lawyer to grab the phone to you when she’s just been focusing on 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 understand what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Midwest City divorce attorney who demonstrates to 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 kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it might not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Midwest City. No-one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Midwest City divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney handles his / her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
