You will find far too many divorce lawyers in Lincoln Park. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Lincoln Park Michigan and click Search. You’ll see a lengthy listing of divorce lawyers in and near Lincoln Park.
You’ll realize that all those lawyers look and sound the same. They will all tell you inside 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 internet sites of those lawyers , that won’t help either. Each of them have exactly 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 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 legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need a lawyer of proven higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Lincoln 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 wise to remember that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has absolutely nothing to do with the specific performance of the individual attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the little information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Lincoln Park are obviously not going to publish 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 has no 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 their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not tell you how good or affordable any attorney actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce attorney 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 attorney 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 a number 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 attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Lincoln 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 very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So at this time, as you read this, only you realize what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Lincoln Park divorce attorney who shows you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney informs you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it could 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 Lincoln Park. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Lincoln Park divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate 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 assume that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their own businesses will 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 attorney positions and promotes their own law practice is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to handle your own personal legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their own business interests?
So look carefully at each attorney. 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 this lawyer.
So what’s a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the most effective family law brand in the whole world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Lincoln Park? How about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to possess one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re searching for?
You do not need to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you do not need to go with some me-too attorney who just stands in line with every other divorce attorney in Wayne County. Instead, you need a lawyer who handles his or her own law practice business boldly because that means s/he will look after your divorce in the same manner.
However, there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard divorce marketing brand in the world. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney more cases than their competitors. Lawyers who handle a lot of divorce cases tend to become better at it than their local competitors. You definitely want a busy divorce attorney who is experienced in family law and understands the intricacies of divorce.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost component. It provides 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced cost of case acquisition than their local lawyer competitors mustpay. This means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney is MUCH MORE LIKELY to charge lower fees.

Most 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers also offer free initial consultations.
However, maybe the foremost economic indicator for you to consider 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 needs the same legal assistance in the future? You’ll be able to 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) 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.
So take advantage. Be sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney understands that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you want a real good job done in your case.
Only a good job will bring those free referrals. And you do not need to be nasty or mean about that fact. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney will know it’s true. Tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney didn’t 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.

Uncontested divorces are divorces in which both parties agree that they want a divorce and that no one will fight the divorce or any of its constituent issues.
In many cases, the court process for uncontested can be finalized in a much shorter time than for fought divorces.
