Amanda B. Gallardo is an attorney at Meriwether & Tharp, LLC. Amanda first joined Meriwether & Tharp in 2010 as an intern while attending the Georgia Institute of Technology for her undergraduate degree. After graduating from Georgia Tech, she left Meriwether & Tharp to pursue her law degree at the Charleston School of Law.
During her first and second years of law school, Amanda worked extensively with Charleston Pro Bono Legal Services (CPBLS) helping pro se litigants to prepare and file divorce, child custody and visitation documents. Volunteering at CPBLS only enhanced Amanda's passion for the field of family law and her desire to help others. During her final year of law school, Amanda interned at a prominent family law practice in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina where she gained in-depth knowledge of child custody proceedings and had the opportunity to work one-on-one with a number of clients. Upon earning her law degree, Amanda returned to Meriwether & Tharp as a law clerk. Amanda passed the February 2015, Georgia Bar Examination and is now an attorney with Meriwether & Tharp, LLC.
Amanda grew up in Alpharetta, Georgia and currently resides there. In her free time she enjoys spending time with friends, watching action movies and curling up with a good book.
"Amanda has helped me throughout my divorce process, filing my initial petition as well as my contempt. She is incredibly knowledgeable and I trust her recommendations. She has always been patient with me, making sure that I understood all actions and decisions that were made, and that I was fully comfortable before we moved forward. I feel that Amanda took the time to get to know me and my personal situation and saw me as much more than just a client. I would fully recommend her for any divorce, custody, separation related issue."
"Amanda is an upcoming star in an otherwise challenging and, honestly, quite negative, field. She handles clients in such a way that you feel you are getting personalized attention, yet doesn't try to be their therapist. She admits when she doesn't know the answer to something and seeks it out. She's been trained by her mentor - David Beaudry - an extremely talented attorney (lead on my team), and she's going to be an amazing asset to the firm. They worked together seamlessly and tirelessly to get the results I needed in my case!"
