There are far too many divorce lawyers in Ossun. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Ossun Louisiana and click Search. You’ll get a very long listing of divorce lawyers in and near Ossun.
You’ll realize that all those lawyers look and sound the same. They will all let you know in their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click through to web sites of those lawyers , that won’t help either. All of them have the same cookie-cutter websites.
All of them look and sound the same. All of them tell you 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 listen to any of that noise. If they do not prove it, it 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 attorney. You want an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Ossun.
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 nothing at all to do with the specific performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that if you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Ossun are obviously not going to publish testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI attorney who has no necessary information about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for an equally 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 lawyers tend to be good divorce lawyers 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.
Additionally you will 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 many of these lawyers also handle bankruptcy, DUI, personal injury, crime, car-wreck, immigration, social security disability, etc. They’re suggesting, “Hey, we do a|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Ossun divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone 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 understand what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Ossun divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her 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 could not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Ossun. No-one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Ossun 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’s reasonable to think that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their 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 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 personal legal and economic interests when they do not 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 is 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 attorney who has seized the very best family law brand in the world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Ossun? How about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to possess one single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re trying to find?
So you do not want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you do not want to hire some non-descript attorney who simply blends in with all other divorce attorney in Lafayette Parish. Instead, you want a lawyer who handles himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will handle your divorce the same way.
But there’s more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard family law marketing brand in the world. Think 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 cases than their local competitors. Lawyers who handle many divorce cases are usually better at it than their local competitors. You want a busy divorce attorney who is well-versed in divorce and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost-effectiveness factor. It brings 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 LIKELY to charge lower fees.

Most 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
But perhaps the foremost financial 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 be saying to a friend or relative who is in need of the same help in the future? You’ll just 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 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 use that knowledge to your advantage. Make sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney knows that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you expect to have a very good job done in your case.
Only a great job will lead to future referrals. And you do not 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. Tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney didn’t have 1-800-DIVORCE, how would you refer people 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.
