There are so many divorce attorneys in Pineville. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Pineville Louisiana and click Search. You’ll get a lengthy list of divorce attorneys in and near Pineville.
You’ll realize that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all tell you in their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click right through to the websites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. All of them have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
All of them look and sound the same. All 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 do not want to hear any of that noise. If they do not prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to look after your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Pineville.
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.
You should also be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has absolutely nothing to do with the particular performance of the individual attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the little information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Pineville are obviously not going to publish testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI attorney who doesn’t have necessary understanding of the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t tell you 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 will also realize that a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You might have found them on Avvo’s divorce page, but many 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|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Pineville divorce lawyer to grab the phone to you when she’s just been taking care of a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So today, 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 Pineville divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney informs you about himself or herself. That type of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it might not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Pineville. No one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Pineville divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find 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 assume that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the difficulties and challenges in their own businesses would be the way s/he handles the difficulties and challenges in your case.
People generally bring exactly the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So how each attorney positions and promotes their own law practice will be a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to take care of your own personal legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their 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’s no dynamic or creative insight or spark in such a lawyer.
So what is a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the most effective family law brand in the whole world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Pineville? How about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to possess one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re searching for?
So you don’t need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you don’t need to hire a non-descript attorney who just stands in line with every other divorce attorney in Rapides Parish. Instead, you need a lawyer who represents himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will look after your case in the same manner.
However, there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard divorce marketing brand on the planet. Think also about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney many more divorces than their competitors. Lawyers who handle a lot of divorces are usually better at it than their local competitors. You want a busy divorce attorney who is well-versed in family law and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost-effectiveness factor. It provides 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a lower case acquisition cost than their competitors mustpay. That means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney is MUCH MORE LIKELY to request lower fees.
Many also offer fixed fee unbundled service packages such as a case review legal services offering, where you will not only know your complete cost up-front but also pay only for the services your divorce really needs.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
However, maybe the foremost financial indicator for you to take advantage of is that because of 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 legal assistance in the future? You’ll be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney for years to come. S/he badly WANTS that free business.
Your 1-800-DIVORCE referrals are what bring your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer’s case acquisition cost way down. They may get 2, 3, 6 divorce cases for the cost of one (yours). And that’s why they signed up. And you know that, and they know that, and they hope you know that.
So use that knowledge to your advantage. Be sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney understands that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you expect to have a real good job done in your divorce.
Only a good job will bring those free referrals. You don’t need to be nasty or mean about that reality. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney will know it’s true. Be sure to tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney did not have 1-800-DIVORCE, how would you refer friends and colleagues to him or her. You’ll forget his or her name and you’ll lose his or her email address. In 2 or 5 years, you’ll never remember, but you’ll never forget 1-800-DIVORCE.

Uncontested divorces are those in which both parties agree that they want a divorce and that neither spouse will fight the divorce or any of its constituent parts.

You should ask your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer concerning the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. Bear in mind that these are not appropriate in EVERY uncontested divorce.
