Excellent Attourney
I was referred to Bhyllie by a family member and she is absolutely amazing, she is excellent at what she does and very thorough. Having a fragile case, she has been absolutely hands down the best through a very difficult time, she has been extremely supportive every step of the way, and my children and I are eternally grateful! I would recommend Bhyllie to anyone she’s the best Attourney I’ve seen in this area to date!

Child Custody
First of all I would like to say if you think there is no hope and you’re at your wits end please give this law firm a call. Byllie is our main attorney and she has gone above and beyond!!!! Always available for answers. Even if I had one more question lol she was Understanding with that and always took her time to explain everything to me and to make me feel so much better. The reality of the situation is they are our attorneys and they know what is best for us. At times we are so confused and so emotionally drained that we just don’t think straight. At that point I would pick up the phone call Byllie voiced my concerns and she always made me feel 100% better. Shane also was involved and always came through. We are still on our journey but have come so far so much quicker than we ever anticipated. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who’s looking for honest hard-working dependable and absolutely always there for you anytime you need anything. Keep them in your prayers because I know what they do is not easy to say the least. And I also pray for all the parents out there going through that horrible custody battle that they could put their children first and see that means more than anything.

Best of the Best!!!!
From the very first contact I had with Bhyllie Mouton I felt the upmost confidence that I was in the right place. Bhyllie has a tremendous amount of compassion for those involved and an obvious passion for the fight for what's right. Bhyllie went above and beyond to give us the most accurate and up to date information. She went out of her way many times to communicate with Me and keep me informed every step of the way or to attempt to ease fears that I had. She displayed genuine empathy for our situation and she fought our case as if she were fighting for her own! Her paralegal was also extremely pleasant and always helpful and very knowledgeable. She displayed equivalent compassion for those involved and passion for her job. She also communicated with us many times to keep us informed and ease fears. The good Lord most definitely sent me to this office for reason. I will be forever grateful to Bhyllie and this firm for what they have done for my family!

Life Savers
The best attorney isn’t always the one you see on billboards. To me the best attorney is the one who has the biggest heart, the most fight in them, the best interest of their client and the best interest of children. That attorney is none other than Bhyllie Mouton. Yet again she saved my kids lives by winning my custody battle and keeping them safe from harm. Myself and my children will forever be in your debt for being the best attorney ever. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Never imagined
I am writing this to give a completely honest review of my experience with Mouton & Mouton Law firm. I hired them to handle my divorce case. Basically they treated me like I was an advisory not a client. They treated me like they were going up against me, not trying to help me. I could never get in touch with Bhyllie, she pushed me off on her brother but he did not have time for me. We had a court date scheduled and they didn’t even know about it. I had to call several times to let them know about it. Finally the receptionist got the message to Bhyllie the day before the court date. The date had to be pushed back because they had done nothing on my case yet. I got the impression that they are way too busy to take on more clients. They should have told me this up front and not have taken my case. I gave them a $5,400 retainer and they did very little. As it turns out, we decided not to go trough with the divorce. I asked them to return some of my retainer but they said no, that I owed them more money if she gave me an itemized bill. Bhyllie claimed that the $5,400 was a flat fee that was charged to complete my case. I was not told this up front, I assumed it was a true “retainer” that would be drafted as my case proceeded. They did not have me sign any contract that explained the flat fee to initiate my case. Bhyllie then told me that “I don’t meet with Ex-clients who think we have done nothing.” She did offer to give me an itemized bill which would show that my “retainer” was used up. If you want a good attorney use Phil Kobetz. He will be very upfront about the charges and is one of the best attorneys in Lafayette.
