There are way too many divorce lawyers in Eastland. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Eastland Louisiana and click Search. You’ll see a very long listing of divorce lawyers in and near Eastland.
You’ll realize that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all inform 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 web sites of those lawyers , 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 let you know 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 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 attorney. You want a lawyer of proven higher quality to look after your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Eastland.
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 know that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all 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 based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that if you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Eastland are obviously not going to create testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI attorney who has no necessary knowledge about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about his / her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t inform 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 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 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 letting you know, “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 Eastland 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 at this time, 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 Eastland divorce attorney who shows you some type of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his / her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney tells you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it might not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Eastland. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Eastland divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney handles his / her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It is reasonable to believe that the way in which 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 exact same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So just how each attorney positions and promotes his / her own law practice would have been 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 phony 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 good 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 whole world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Eastland? How about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to possess a single word as his / her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re trying to find?
You don’t want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you don’t want to go with some non-descript attorney who just blends in with all other divorce attorney in East Baton Rouge Parish. Instead, you want a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business boldly because that means s/he will look after your case in the same manner.
However, there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard divorce marketing brand in the world. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney.

However, maybe the best financial factor for you to take advantage of is that because of 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 took care of 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) are free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney for years to come. S/he WANTS that free business.
