Testimonials: Can They Really Help Me Choose A Divorce Lawyer?

If you follow DeShon Laraye Pullen PLC on Facebook or through this blog, you will notice that we regularly share client testimonials. A testimonial, or a former client's feedback on our representation, is a great way to better understand what we're all about through the eyes and words of someone who had a legal need similar to yours.

Testimonials are a powerful tool to evaluate attorneys. Most law firms believe they provide excellent representation - at least one would hope! - and they will tell you so. But it means more to read a candid experience from a former client.

The State Bar of Arizona forbids attorneys from paying clients to provide testimonials (Ethics Rule 7.2). If you read a testimonial on an attorney's website or a review service like Avvo, you can be pretty confident it is genuine. If it's false or misleading, the lawyer is risking severe punishment - including potential forfeiture of his or her license to practice law.

Why Should I Write A Testimonial?

Your review can help guide others to make informed decisions. We understand you might be reluctant to share your experience because of privacy concerns. Fortunately, many independent rating websites - like Avvo - allow the reviewer to choose how much personal information he or she wishes to divulge, including his or her name and legal situation.

Further, attorneys will read the review. Whether you were overjoyed or underwhelmed with your client experience, your lawyer will probably take it to heart. He or she will likely adjust his or her approach, when necessary, and focus on continuing to do the things that clients value.
