Mediation Practice Expansion
Why Join Divorce With Dignity?
Mediation Firms and Family Law Firms that are looking to grow revenue and profits with a strategic expansion of their existing practice services would benefit from an affiliation with Divorce With Dignity.
While it’s true that 95-98% of all divorces in the U.S. are not litigated, a growing number of these potential clients cannot afford litigation or in many circumstances even collaborative mediation. This is a growing trend given the recent “great recession” and chronic high unemployment rates. What’s the alternative? Well in case you haven’t noticed there has been a surge of Internet legal forms purveyors of the do-it-yourself or cheap divorce for only $299.
Perhaps your law firm is facing some tough economic times like everyone else and clients are balking at high fees for litigation or even mediation. Do you have the third alternative for your clients? In business marketing it’s called a good, better, best product/service offering. If you don’t offer all three levels of service you are letting potential revenue walk out your front door.
Many general practice law firms are also looking for ways to increase revenue and increase the specialization of their legal services to prevent further encroachment from larger law firms in their markets. Divorce With Dignity with its unique business model is ideally positioned to assist these smaller firms find a niche in lower cost value-added peaceful divorce services. This is truly a new business opportunity for general practice firms because many people have lost faith in the traditional system of divorce resolution.
Again, are you trying to grow your business without having all the services your clients, need, want and deserve? And, why should you lose incremental business revenue to the online option for divorce services that is faceless and ill equipped, (not legal professionals) to help people through a truly legal process. Without a real low cost option like Divorce With Dignity that is safe and administrated by legal professionals, people are throwing their money away because they don’t understand the forms.
Here is an example from the real world. At Divorce With Dignity we recently had a man with a PhD degree who tried to divorce himself by using the largest online do-it-yourself legal services firm. After struggling and having no success in getting the forms through the court, he came to one of our offices, placed the pile of paperwork and forms on our desk and said, “I am a well-educated man and even I cannot figure this out. Please help me.” This is just one story. Whether its money or pride, there are large numbers of people who need help with their divorce – you have the ability to fill a real market void.
Other reasons to consider offering peaceful divorce services are:
- you can add this new revenue stream without increasing your overhead since you already have a going legal practice with an office, conference room, telephone, computers, insurance, etc.
- You likely have a legal secretary or paralegal that may not be fully utilized in your office or you might be sharing a paralegal or renting one at very high per diem rates that could be brought on full time.
- This new service can be performed by your legal secretary or paralegal and turn their overhead expense into a profit center.
- There are also opportunities for referral business from the service you provide to your DWD clients
