"Becoming a client of Meriwether and Tharp has been a great blessing! Life doesn't always take you on the road well-traveled and I recently found myself traveling in unfamiliar territory; single and pregnant. I became a client of Charlotte Ruble during my pregnancy so that we could begin a child support order for my newborn as soon as possible. Although she was unable to begin proceedings until my daughter was born, Charlotte and her team often checked in to see how my pregnancy was going. Her calm and empathetic mannerism coupled with some humor, made it easy to develop a positive attorney-client relationship. Charlotte worked closely with Lauren Zaki and Andrea Palmer, who worked diligently on my case and always communicated with me clearly and quickly. These women always treated my case with fidelity; updating me on a consistent basis. Their communication was so thorough that I received answers to questions before I was able to ask them and they were always available to listen if I had worries and concerns. Even though these women had many other cases, they made me feel like I was of the upmost importance to them which took many stresses away and allowed me to focus on my personal life. My daughter was born on August 29th and Charlotte filed for a court date just two days later. I still cannot get over how prompt and quick this whole process was! The short time that it took to have my case completed and finalized from the time it began still shocks me and it's all due to Charlotte's precision and attention to detail. I am grateful for her services and recommend Charlotte without any reservation. Thank you to Charlotte, Lauren, and Andrea for your positive impact and dedication to my case!"
