There are way too many divorce attorneys in Carencro. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Carencro Louisiana and click Search. You’ll get a very long listing of divorce attorneys in and near Carencro.
You’ll observe that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all inform you in their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click through to the websites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. All of them have the exact 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 listen to any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, it indicates nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want a lawyer of proven higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Carencro.
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 absolutely nothing to do with the actual performance of the individual lawyer. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, 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 Carencro are obviously not going to publish testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI lawyer who doesn’t have necessary knowledge about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer as a swap for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not inform 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.
Additionally you will observe that several divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You could 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 letting you know, “Hey, we do a|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Carencro 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 very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So right now, as you read this, only you know what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Carencro divorce lawyer who demonstrates to you some type of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their 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 may be accurate, but it may not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce lawyer in Carencro. No one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Carencro divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to locate YOUR divorce lawyer? Look at how each divorce lawyer handles his / her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It’s reasonable to think that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their own businesses will be the way s/he handles the issues 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 just how each lawyer 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 lawyer to take care of your personal legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their own business interests?
So look carefully at each lawyer. 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 such a lawyer.
So what’s a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the very best family law brand in the whole world? How about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Carencro? How about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to possess a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
You don’t want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . And you don’t want to go with a non-descript lawyer who simply stands in line with every other divorce lawyer in Lafayette Parish. Instead, you want a lawyer who handles his or her own law practice business creatively because that means s/he will look after your interests in the same manner.
But there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the premier family law marketing brand in the world. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.

But maybe the foremost economic indicator for you to take advantage of is that due to the memorability of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you say to a friend or relative who is in need of similar help in the future? You’ll just be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) will be the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer 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 will 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 take advantage. Be sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer understands that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you want a real good job done in your case.
Only a good job will bring those free referrals. And you don’t need to be nasty or mean about that reality. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer will know it’s true. Tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer didn’t 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.
