There are far too many divorce attorneys in North Highlands. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter North Highlands Louisiana and click Search. You’ll get an extended list of divorce attorneys in and near North Highlands.
You’ll realize that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all tell you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think 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. Each of them have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
Each of them look and sound the same. Each of them inform you about 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, this means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You need an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in North Highlands.
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 advisable to be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has absolutely nothing to do with the actual performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that should you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in North Highlands are obviously not going to write testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI lawyer who has no necessary understanding of the lawyer 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 lawyer about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not tell you how good or affordable any lawyer actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce lawyer 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 lawyer 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 might 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 suggesting, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your North Highlands 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 very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So right now, as you read this, only you understand what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local North Highlands divorce lawyer who demonstrates to you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer tells you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it could not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you don’t have to find the best divorce lawyer in North Highlands. No-one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best North Highlands divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce lawyer? Look at how each divorce lawyer 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 the way business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very own businesses would 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 lawyer positions and promotes his or her own law practice would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to deal with your own legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each lawyer. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a bogus rating, leave them alone. If they represent themselves only on a cookie-cutter website and only with self-praise, leave them alone. There’s no dynamic or creative insight or spark in such a lawyer.
So what’s a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the most effective family law brand in the world? How about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in North Highlands? How about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to possess a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
You don’t need to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you don’t need to go with some non-descript lawyer who just stands in line with all other divorce lawyer in Caddo Parish. Instead, you need a lawyer who handles himself or herself boldly because that means s/he will look after your divorce in the same manner.
However, there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard family law marketing brand on the planet. Think also about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.

However, maybe the foremost economic factor for you to take advantage of is that due to the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral bonanza. What will you be saying to a friend or relative who is in need of the same help in the future? You’ll be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a free case.
