There are far too many divorce lawyers in Crystal. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Crystal Minnesota and click Search. You’ll get a very long listing of divorce lawyers in and near Crystal.
You’ll notice that all of those lawyers 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 think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click to the web sites of those lawyers , that won’t help either. Each of them have the exact same cookie-cutter websites.
Each of them look and sound the same. Each 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 don’t want to know any of that noise. If they don’t 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 attorney. You want an attorney of proven higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Crystal.
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 know that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has practically nothing to do with the particular 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 based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that should you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Crystal are obviously not going to create testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI attorney who has no 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 their 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 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 notice that a number 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 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 Crystal 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 different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So right now, as you read this, only you know what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Crystal divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some sort 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 might be accurate, but it may not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Crystal. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Crystal 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 assume that the way in which 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 will be 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 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 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’s an 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 whole world? What about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Crystal? What about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to possess a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re searching for?
So you don’t want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you don’t want to go with a non-descript attorney who simply blends in with all other divorce attorney in Hennepin County. You want a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business decisively because that means s/he will handle your divorce in the same manner.

They took care of me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for.
