There are far too many divorce attorneys in Spencer. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Spencer Oklahoma and click Search. You’ll get a very long list of divorce attorneys in and near Spencer.
You’ll realize that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all inform you within their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click through to the internet sites of those 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 tell you 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 hear any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, it means 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 need an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Spencer.
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 absolutely nothing to do with the particular performance of the individual lawyer. It’s 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 informs you that if you hover over the little information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Spencer are obviously not going to write testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI lawyer who has no necessary information about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer as a swap for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t 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 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 can also realize that many 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|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Spencer divorce lawyer to pick up the phone to you when she’s just been taking care of 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 understand what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Spencer divorce lawyer who demonstrates to you some sort 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 form of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it may not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you don’t have to find the best divorce lawyer in Spencer. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Spencer divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce lawyer? Look at how each divorce lawyer handles his / her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It’s reasonable to assume that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their own businesses would be the way s/he handles the problems and challenges in your case.
People generally bring the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So how each lawyer positions and promotes his or her own law practice will be a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to handle your own legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their own business interests?
So look carefully at each lawyer. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a phony 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 is a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the most effective 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 Spencer? How about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to have a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
You don’t need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . And you don’t need to hire a non-descript lawyer who simply blends in with all other divorce lawyer in Oklahoma County. You need a lawyer who handles his or her own law practice business creatively because that means s/he will handle your case in the same manner.
However, there’s more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best divorce marketing brand on the planet. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.

1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost-effectiveness component. It brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a lower case acquisition cost than their local lawyer competitors mustpay. This means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is MUCH MORE LIKELY to charge lower fees.

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 the same legal assistance in the future? You’ll just say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a free case. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for years to come. S/he WANTS that free business.
