If you are ever doing research or looking for information about divorce in California, you may come across a website called Avvo (dot) com. I have found this site to be nothing more than lead generation tool for attorneys and not a resource for valuable information.
They say they are an expert only question and answer forum where people can ask legal questions of lawyers for free. It is true that you can ask questions for free. And attorneys will even answer the questions…. Or will they?
I read the answers that the divorce attorneys give and they are laughable. I say this because their answers are so generic that they lack any real value.
It seems that the only reason that the attorneys are part of Avvo is so they can get their name in front of people looking for advice so they can hopefully get their business. Attorneys are afraid that if they give the answer, the client will never need them.
This is so far from the truth.
I give out information all the time on how to complete the divorce process. Some of the people use me and others are so grateful for the information, they end up using my service.
I have to admit that some of the questions asked by folks are not clear and therefore they do not get a clear answer, but I did a little test of my own.
I posted a very specific question that would require a very specific answer.
The answers not only did not give any helpful advice, but the attorneys that did answer ended their reply with “I suggest that you speak to an attorney for assistance”.
What you will notice throughout avvo is that all the attorneys will say you need to speak to an attorney. So it appears that there is no real help to be obtained here, rather just a trap to get attorneys in front of you.
I am sure the divorce attorneys are paying a pretty penny to be a part of the forums being promised they can get clients from responding to potential clients needs. I have a feeling nobody is getting what they thought they were getting.
