There are way too many divorce lawyers in Brookfield. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Brookfield Virginia and click Search. You’ll see an extended listing of divorce lawyers in and near Brookfield.
You’ll notice that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They will all inform you in 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.
In the event that you click right through to the web sites of these lawyers , 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 tell you 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 hear any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, it means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine 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 proven higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Brookfield.
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 remember that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the actual performance of the individual lawyer. It is 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 next to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Brookfield 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 doesn’t have necessary knowledge about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer as a swap for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their 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 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.
You can also notice that several 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 will want divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You never want your Brookfield 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 at this time, as you read this, only you realize what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Brookfield divorce lawyer who shows you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer tells you about himself or herself. That type of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it might 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 Brookfield. No one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Brookfield 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 assume that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their own businesses will be the way s/he handles the issues 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 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 handle your personal 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 such a 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 Brookfield? How about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to possess one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re searching for?
You don’t need to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . And you don’t need to go with a me-too lawyer who simply stands in line with all other divorce lawyer in Stafford County. Instead, you need a lawyer who represents himself or herself creatively because that means s/he will look after your interests the same way.
But there’s more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best family law 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 an affordability factor. It brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a lower cost of case acquisition than their lawyer competitors pay. This means your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is MUCH MORE LIKELY to charge lower fees.

Most 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
But maybe the best financial indicator for you to consider is that due to the memorability of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you be saying to a friend or relative who is in need of the same help in the future? You’ll just say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. All of your 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 cost of case acquisition 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.

Only a great 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 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.
