There are far too many divorce attorneys in Brooklyn Park. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Brooklyn Park Maryland and click Search. You’ll get an extended listing of divorce attorneys in and near Brooklyn Park.
You’ll observe that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all let you know within 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 through to the internet sites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. Each of them have the same cookie-cutter websites.
Each of them look and sound the same. Each 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 do not want to hear any of that noise. If they do not prove it, it means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need an attorney of proven higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Brooklyn Park.
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 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 attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the little information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Brooklyn Park are obviously not going to create testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI attorney who does not have any necessary understanding of the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t 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 will also observe 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 many of these lawyers also handle bankruptcy, DUI, personal injury, crime, car-wreck, immigration, social security disability, etc. They’re suggesting, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Brooklyn Park 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 different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So today, 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 Brooklyn Park divorce attorney who shows you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney tells you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it could not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Brooklyn Park. No one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Brooklyn Park divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney 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 think 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 exactly the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So just how each attorney positions and promotes his or her own law practice is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to handle your personal legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their own business interests?
So look carefully at each attorney. 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 is no dynamic or creative insight or spark in this lawyer.
So what’s an example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the very best family law brand in the world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Brooklyn Park? How about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to possess a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re searching for?
So you do not need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you do not need to hire a me-too attorney who just stands in line with all other divorce attorney in Anne Arundel County. Instead, you need a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business decisively because that means s/he will look after your divorce the same way.
However, there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard divorce marketing brand in the world. Think also about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney.

However, maybe the best financial indicator for you to take advantage of is that due to the memorability of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you say to a friend or relative who is in need of 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 case they don’t pay anything for. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney for years to come. S/he 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 will get 2, 3, 6 divorce cases 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.

Following are perhaps the most common secondary family law service offerings, which is not to say that they are any less important.
If there are minor children, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting must be addressed and become determined by legal court orders.

The topic of child support is also potentially emotional. Frequently, it is also a concern of financial well-being going forward and fairness.
Whether your child support issue is a matter of determining the correct dollar figure of child support that should be paid, as determined by the incomes of the parents and the percentages of primary physical custody of each parent or if it is a matter of either enforcement or adjustment of a current child support, your near-me 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Brooklyn Park has you covered.

Often in a lengthy marriage, but also in shorter marriages, spousal support can be an important issue.

Uncontested divorces are those in which both parties agree that they want to dissolve their marriage and that no one will legally fight the case or any of its parts, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In many instances, the court process for uncontested can be completed in a much shorter time than in fought divorces.
You could file for divorce believing that the proceeding should be uncontested, but discover later on that your spouse will. This doesn’t occur frequently, but it does happen.
You should ask your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer concerning the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. Bear in mind that these are not appropriate in ALL uncontested divorces.
