Trusted Family Law Advisors

Meriwether & Tharp, LLC is one of the largest law firms in Georgia dedicated solely to the practice of family law. In order to be Trusted Family Law Advisers, we constantly attend specialized seminars and lectures to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in family law and psychology. Members of our team have taught other lawyers about various aspects of divorce through Continuing Legal Education courses. We have published articles for various family law publications as well as newspapers. We consistently post free family law information on our blog, http://mtlawoffice.com/blog/. While our attorneys primarily focus on representing clients in divorce actions, members of our team are more than just attorneys. Members of our team are also trained and qualified to serve as mediators, arbitrators, late case evaluators, and Guardian Ad Litems in family law cases.

Team of Legal Professionals

At Meriwether & Tharp, LLC, you will receive the benefit of not just one attorney but a team of legal professions (including attorneys, paralegals, and assistants) who are dedicated to your case. Our team approach allows us to ensure that cases and the issues that come up are handled quickly and effectively. If one attorney is out of the office for a Court appearance or mediation, there is usually another attorney on your team who is familiar with your case who can assist you. While we are one of the largest firms in Georgia dedicated exclusively to family law, we offer the customer service and individual client attention you would find in a small firm. It is our top priority to ensure that our client’s needs throughout the process are addressed.

Financial Know-How for Fair Asset Division

Having experience dividing a wide variety of marital estates, you can trust the team of legal professionals at Meriwether & Tharp, LLC to help divide your marital estate fairly and equitably. Our attorneys have handled marital estates involving investments in real property, retirement accounts and pensions, vested and unvested stock options, and marital businesses. We have also handled cases involving negative net worth, high debt to income ratio, and high credit card debt. With our past experience in business law, we have specific expertise in cases requiring the division of all types of businesses. Regardless of your situation, our trusted family law advisors will guide you towards a fair asset division.

Innovative Thinking and Effective Results

While in the Courtroom, we zealously represent our clients. Fierce litigation, however, is often not the best way to resolve a divorce. We use active negotiation to reach out and work toward a resolution whenever appropriate. While cases may share similarities between them, the legal team at Meriwether & Tharp, LLC recognizes that each family, marriage, and divorce is unique and therefore requires a customized approach. You can rely on the experience of our lawyers with diverse backgrounds and experiences, connections to resources within the legal community, and creative thinking. Your team of trusted family law advisors can craft a strategy that is specific to your and your family’s needs.

    Meriwether & Tharpe LLC provided exemplary service during a very difficult time. I was thoroughly educated on how the process would work, supported to achieve my objectives in the best way possible, and they were patient in working with me for my goals. I felt very supported and heard by both Leh and Emily. I would highly recommend these attorneys.

    I definitely would not recommend this law firm. I went to them twice. The first time I thought I got exactly what I wanted in my custody battle. Find out 6 years later that the first lawyer from this firm screwed up the language and gave me incorrect information. Now I owe money from that situation. I found this out after seeking full custody this time around. I was asked for the information more than one time. It seems like 6 people were always working on the case at the same time. Two

    WARNING- DO NOT HIRE TO HANDLE YOUR DIVORCE! As if a divorce is not painful enough, discovering the legal team that you have hired is incompetent makes it an unbearable process. Going into the process, I thought I hired the right team for their experience & reputation (great marketing) only to discover error after error after error! The most disturbing fact here is my divorce was a fairly SIMPLE, uncontested divorce; however, due to their errors, they made it more complicated.

    My son call Meriwether and Tharp after much research into divorce attorneys. This was definitely a new area and experience for him. He spoke directly with Mr. Tharp and was very impressed. Thinking Mr. Tharp was going to represent him, he signed up and paid the retainer. The next day he was told he will be represented by Courtney a Junior Associate.. Five weeks and almost $5000 later nothing was accomplished. He hired a new attorney and now it is moving along. Would not recommend this firm.

    This law firm took me for a ride that lasted for years longer than it should have. They didn't answer phone calls or emails. They did charge huge fee's for various services that the other individual in my case failed to comply with. This was never addressed with the courts and they never addressed several other major issues. In the long run the cost me a fortune and lost me my kid. I wish I had gotten a decent lawyer. Take it from me and save yourself the pain. Don't waste your time!
