Put my family as if she were fighting for her own
Bhyllie was a firecracker in the courtroom! She has a classy, but yet in your face with facts attitude. If I could sum her up in one word, it would be AMAZING. She fought for me and my children as if she were fighting for her own. She made me feel very comfortable and I knew she would slay in the courtroom. And did. In the highest heels and upstanding ensembles. Do not be fooled by her beauty. She is a beast in the court in the courtroom and I can’t thank her enough for the turnout.

She's simply the best
Don't be fooled, the process of family court issues is not a quick one. There will be multiple hearings, filings, and even more if your ex is an addict or has other issues. This is precisely why you benefit from an attorney like Bhyllie. She makes a strategy that is well thought through and begins the process to build your case for the best needs of her client. When curveballs come from the other side or from unforeseen circumstances, and they will, she is apt to recalculate the best strategy with the ultimate goal of getting the client satisfaction in the shortest time possible. She is respected highly in the court system from my observations as her rapport with other lawyers, judges, and even the courthouse staff is vibrant and productive. This ALL works to your benefit as she uses those great relationships to further her clients ultimate goals. For many lawyers, you are but a number, just another case. But if Bhyllie takes your case, you feel like family and she fights for you as if you are. Remember, no one has a magic bullet to rush through the family court process, no one. So if you're going to have to face the tedious legal process that requires patience, wisdom, and a positive attitude, there is NO lawyer better suited to be your voice. Period.

Never have I met anyone more confident!
I put off getting an attorney for a year to finalize my divorce because I was nervous of just the thought of going to court. I finally got in touch with Bhyllie and from the moment she started talking I knew I had nothing to worry about. She made sure that my mind was at ease throughout the entire process. The night before the hearing she replied to my anxious texts until almost midnight and kept reassuring me that everything would be just fine. On the court date Bhyllie walked in to the court house with more confidence and more put together than any other attorney there and more than anyone I have ever seen. As a business owner myself I would only wish to have a fraction of the confidence that Bhyllie had in court. Bhyllie was not only confident that we would win but she carried it through and we received everything that we needed and beyond. I have 11 kids and Bhyllie still represented me well enough for a good outcome. When people say that the court rules in the mother’s favor. Don’t believe it! Bhyllie proved that this statement is absolutely false. A wise person once told me “anyone can study and become a lawyer but direction and being process driven is what separates you from the rest” and Bhyllie followed and carried through every process needed to take care of me as her client and it all payed off!

A Family Law Expert
I was referred to Bhyllie regarding my custody case. What started as a custody modification, quickly moved into an Exparte. Because of her extensive experience in family law, she was able to guide me through the legal steps we needed to take in order to modify custody and keep my child safe. She was compassionate, understanding and supportive. She was able to calm my fears and reassure me throughout the process. I highly recommend Bhyllie for anyone who needs an attorney who is not only experienced, but cares about their clients and their families.

Amazing
I walked in to the law office nervous, upset and very concerned about the wellbeing of my children. Within a few seconds she calmed any nervousness and worries from my mind and walked me through the process. She was very professional and also very caring about my children. She makes you feel like family and that you have a voice and she will never stop fighting for the wellbeing of the children. I thank God for her and what she stands for. It is a blessing to know I have her in our corner to protect the rights of all children. Thank you for accepting your calling to assist parents on getting their children rights back. I know firsthand that she has put a smile on my kids face which makes me a better dad. Thank you from all of us.

Family Attorney
I hired Bhyllie to represent me for child support and custody proceedings about three months ago. From the very first interaction with her, she made my wife and I feel very comfortable and welcome. She has been very patient with me and understanding with every question and concern I’ve had. She explained every detail of our process and proceedings with great detail. Bhyllie is extremely kind and caring. I would highly recommend her to anyone for their attorney. She has become a friend through this all and we couldn’t be more grateful for the assertiveness and professionalism she has shown.

Bhyllie Highly Recommended
Very well satisfied with Bhyllie’s professionalism and expertise in handling my legal needs. She has a wonderful, warm and caring, yet strong personality in handling anything that comes her way in court. She is always there to welcome you with a smile and advise you with her sharp knowledge of law and competence to get the job done in your favor. She has a reassuring way of making you feel at ease and has a positive determination to be successful with your case in every aspect of the law. She is very well prepared and up to date on any and all legal matters presented. Bhyllie takes the time to explain in detail every step of the process and makes you feel at ease. Bhyllie is very fair priced and I highly recommend her professionalism and confidence as a lawyer.

Bhyllie was amazing!
Best possible outcome on my part. I was fighting for custody of my little brother. In order to get him out of the unhealthy environment he was in. Bhyllie made everything simple and an easy process. I received full permanent custody today and couldn’t be happier.

The absolute best!
I am a father living in a different state (6 hours away) than my children and was having a very difficult situation with my ex-wife. I wanted to modify my visitation in order to be more involved with and to see my children more. My ex-wife and her family were fighting me every step of the way. When I contacted Ms. Mouton I was at my lowest point, I was desperate to see my children on a regular basis and I knew that my ex-wife's parents would provide whatever monetary support she needed. I felt like I was fighting an uphill battle that I was bound to lose. However, after talking with Ms. Mouton the first time, I knew I had someone in my corner who was willing to go the extra mile and provide whatever support I needed in the courtroom. I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. She fought hard for me, and my custody modification turned out better than expected. Ms. Mouton had a "take no prisoners" attitude and she knew exactly how to handle difficult situations. I am so blessed to have found her!

She is the BEST OF THE BEST!!
When I first met Bhyllie I instantly loved her personality and conviction to look into my case. She made me laugh at the situation and reassured me that everything would be just fine. Her drive to know everything she possibly can is remarkable. We sat and spoke about every little detail of what was going on. We went into the hearing officer and she was very prepared for anything thrown our way, we both had everything we needed! I was a nervous wreck but she calmed me down and did just what she said she would do! Needless to say she is very good and everyone should use her business!!

Mrs. Christine Trahan, Grandmother
I walked into Ms. Bhyllie Mouton office, last minute, very upset after learning the my grand-daughter's living conditions (drugs). Ms. Bhyllie took my case right away. She explained to me, my rights as a grandparent and how I can move forward to get custody of my grand-daughter, Stevie Scerbo. I received excellent service and a heart felt welcome. I knew after speaking with her that I can now rest at night. I feel everything will be taken care of.

I would recommend Bhyllie for all of your legal needs. She is a woman of her word and will assist you with all your needs. She over came many issue that arrived through my legal stage, she is very comforting to talk to and there to lend her ear when you just need to talk about your issues during you legal issues. If you are looking for a great lawyer with a great attitude and just someone that you feel like is on your side from day one, this is the lawyer you want to hire for all your needs.

Honest, Hardworking,Dependable,Trustworthy
Choosing an attorney is just as important as choosing a Dr. The choice you make can be life changing. For me Bhyllie was life changing. Many good dad's out there get the wrong end of the stick. When it comes to dad's rights the system is most certainly not equal. The good most certainly become pooled in with the bad. I trusted Bhyllie to make some of the biggest decisions I have ever made. That's a lot of trust you must have. There is no billboard or commercial that can ever create a trusting bond that strong. From the jump I could tell that she would do all she could to help and guide me through my process. While there is no magic wand someone can wave to "win" I can assure you Bhyllie is someone that you can trust to take you through your process. I certainly received the outcome that I deserved. So if I could leave any advice it would be to make sure that you 10000% trust the person that is representing you. For me Bhyllie is that person.

Bhyllie Mouton
My husband and i hired Bhyllie to represent us as our family law attorney a month ago. The day we met her I knew there was no better attorney we could have hired. She knew nothing about us or the issue we were having. As we sat in her office for the consolation she was very professional and concerned for our child's welfare. Once we left that meeting we knew right away that this was the right law firm for us. There has not been a time that we have called that she has not returned our call. I would highly recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a great attorney.

The most amazing attorney
Bhyllie is a wonderful person and a terrific attorney/mediator. Without your deft skill, warm style and experienced perspective, we “I”couldn't have made it. Many Thanks for sharing your gifts, a bright warm smile, ESPECIALLY when I needed one the most. For all of your patience, effort, kindness and knowledge of the law and of people's feelings and needs. You are a gift! A true gem. - Warm regards- L

Amazing!
There is not enough words to thank Bhyllie Mouton for everything she is and has done for me . When I was left alone after 371/2 years of marriage I was lost and didn't know where to turn.Bhyllie went beyond all the legal paper work . When I didn't understand something she explained it in a way I could understand. Divorce is word I never thought I would hear . So many fears went through me . Bhyllie talked to me and helped calm my fears . Knowing someone with so much compassion not only about her job but me really helped calm my fears and keep my anxiety down . She is a amazing lawyer and person !

It takes more than knowledge of the law to be a great lawyer. It also takes integrity, and honesty. Bhyllie and Shane are the the kind of lawyers I am proud of."
