There are way too many divorce attorneys in South Milwaukee. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter South Milwaukee Wisconsin and click Search. You’ll see a lengthy listing of divorce attorneys in and near South Milwaukee.
You’ll notice that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all let you know in their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click to the websites of these 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 listen to 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 attorney. You need a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in South Milwaukee.
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 attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in South Milwaukee 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 knowledge about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not 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 notice 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 telling you, “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 do not want your South Milwaukee divorce lawyer to grab the telephone 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 right now, as you read this, only you know what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local South Milwaukee divorce attorney 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 attorney tells you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it could not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in South Milwaukee. No one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best South Milwaukee divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney 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 believe that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the difficulties and challenges in their very own businesses will 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 just how each attorney 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 attorney to deal with your personal legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each attorney. 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’s no dynamic or creative insight or spark in such a lawyer.
So what’s a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce attorney who has seized the very best family law brand in the world? What about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in South Milwaukee? What about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to have one single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re looking for?
You don’t need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you don’t need to hire some me-too attorney who simply stands in line with every other divorce attorney in Milwaukee County. Instead, you need a lawyer who represents himself or herself boldly because that means s/he will look after your divorce the same way.
But there’s more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best family law marketing brand in the world. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney.

But perhaps the foremost economic factor 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 help in the future? You’ll just 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. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are the icing on the cake 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 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 bring those free referrals. You don’t 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 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.
