You will find so many divorce lawyers in Little Falls. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Little Falls Virginia and click Search. You’ll get a very long list of divorce lawyers in and near Little Falls.
You’ll observe that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click through to the websites of these lawyers , that won’t help either. All of them have the same cookie-cutter websites.
All of them look and sound the same. All of them inform you 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 know 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 very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You need an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to look after your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Little Falls.
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 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 informs you that if you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Little Falls 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 a local DUI lawyer who does not have any necessary knowledge about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not 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 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 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 want a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Little Falls divorce lawyer to pick up the phone to you when she’s just been focusing 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 know what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Little Falls divorce lawyer who shows you some type 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 searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Little Falls. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Little Falls divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to locate 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 is reasonable to assume that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the difficulties and challenges in their own businesses would be the way s/he handles the difficulties and challenges in your case.
People generally bring exactly 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 is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to handle your own personal legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their 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’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? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the most effective family law brand in the whole world? How about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Little Falls? How 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 kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re searching for?
You do not need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . And you do not need to hire some me-too lawyer who simply stands in line with every other divorce lawyer in Stafford County. Instead, you need a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business creatively because that means s/he will look after your interests the same way.
However, there’s more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best divorce marketing brand on the planet. Think also about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.

Most 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers also offer free initial consultations.
However, perhaps the best financial 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 say to a friend or relative who needs the same help in the future? You’ll say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the payoff 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 WANTS that free business.

So use that knowledge to your 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 real good job done in your divorce.
Only a good job will bring those free referrals. You do not need to be nasty or mean about that reality. 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 friends and colleagues 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.
