There are way too many divorce attorneys in Bayou Cane. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Bayou Cane Louisiana and click Search. You’ll see a lengthy listing of divorce attorneys in and near Bayou Cane.
You’ll realize that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all let you know in their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click through to the internet sites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. They all have the same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all tell you various almost identical qualities about themselves. The problem is that not one of them can prove a single claim they make. You never want to hear any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy legal advertisement 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 Bayou Cane.
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.
It’s also wise to 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 believe, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the little information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Bayou Cane are obviously not going to create testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI attorney who does not have any necessary information about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t 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’ll also realize that many of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You may have found them on Avvo’s divorce page, but a number 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|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You never want your Bayou Cane divorce lawyer to pick up the phone to you when she’s just been taking care of 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 realize what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Bayou Cane divorce attorney who shows you some type 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 form of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it could not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Bayou Cane. No-one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Bayou Cane divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate 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 think that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their very own businesses will be the way s/he handles the issues and challenges in your case.
People generally bring 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 handle your own 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 fake 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 this 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 most effective 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 Bayou Cane? What about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to possess a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re searching for?
So you don’t want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you don’t want to hire some non-descript attorney who just blends in with every other divorce attorney in Terrebonne Parish. You want a lawyer who represents himself or herself creatively because that means s/he will look after your divorce in the same manner.
