The M&T Advantage

Tools for Success 

We have a number of tools created in-house that help us analyze your case better. Information is key and our tools help organize and present information in a way that helps us make critically important decisions and strategic moves in your case.

Educational Resources

Our educational resources help you understand the divorce process so you know exactly what to expect. It's important to know and understand all of your available options when planning your case strategy.

Strategies & Recommendations

It's critically important to create a plan to achieve your goal. Our custom created plans along with our professional research studies level up your case strategy by giving you a specific plan we can use to accomplish your goals along with predictor tools that help us work through all potential outcomes.

The Power of Size and Resources

When it comes to divorce, firm size and resources can absolutely give you an advantage. Contrary to popular belief, a firm's size and resources can actually save you money while still allowing you to have a team of experienced professionals to resolve your case rather than just a single overworked lawyer.

Tools for Success

In family law, doing a thorough case analysis helps determine your case strategy and path to success. At M&T, we created a number of tools that help us thoroughly analyze your case so that we have all the information necessary to make the critically important decisions in your case. Our tools include:


Marital Balance Sheet (MBS)

Alimony Calculator

Income Analysis

In-House Custody Evaluator

Case Management Tools & Systems

Insured

Marital Balance Sheet (MBS)

A snapshot of all the finances in the marriage - it helps us determine what is separate and marital property and it allows us to predict splits and outcomes for property & asset division. This document is key to helping us advise you which assets you want and which you don't want.


Alimony Calculator

While Georgia has no alimony formula, we created this calculator in-house by combining a multitude of resources from across the country into a proprietary data set. We use this as an alimony predictor tool.

Income Analysis

A critical in-house analysis tool that helps us discover any potential hidden assets or hidden sources of income. This tool is key in helping us determine income eligible for child support and whether or not someone has a need for alimony or the ability to pay alimony.

In-House Custody Evaluator

This tool helps us analyze the facts of your case that are crucial for child custody. The In-House Custody Evaluator tool will match up the relevant facts of your case with each key decision point that the judge will consider when determining child custody. We use this as a predictor tool for custody outcomes when planning your case strategy, in informal negotiations, formal mediation, and trial.


Case Management Tools & Systems

We have custom-built case management tools, systems, and software that maximize efficiency and organization. Our case management systems also drive our accountability measures. For example, our Case Status Overview system ensures that we plan out your case strategy ahead of time and that we execute each step at the right moment.

Insured

Did you know that attorneys in Georgia are not required by law to carry malpractice insurance? Due to the cost, law firms do sometimes choose not to carry malpractice insurance. We believe strongly that we do everything in our power to maximize our customer experience and provide the highest quality of representation. That being said, at any law firm, accidents could happen. That's why we've chosen to remain covered by malpractice insurance. You can sleep better at night knowing you'll be safe, covered and protected.

Educational Resources 

A lot of the fear in divorce stems from fear of the unknown and not knowing what to expect. Educating yourself is first step on the path to accomplishing your goals for your divorce. Our free educational resources help you understand the divorce process so you know exactly what to expect. As a client, you'll have access to additional, more in-depth, and personalized educational resources.


The Power of Size & Resources

When it comes to divorce, size matters. You wouldn't trust a single firefighter to save a burning skyscraper. Similarly, you wouldn't trust your primary physician to perform heart surgery and next week your brain surgery. So why leave your divorce in the hands of an overworked and overwhelmed solo lawyer who practices several different types of law?

Wait - doesn't a large law firm cost more? Believe it or not, our size actually saves you money. Solo lawyers have to handle all aspects of your case by themselves. At Meriwether & Tharp, our team-based approach allows us to use our combined years of experience to accomplish your goals in the most economically efficient manner. Further, our size and resources allowed us to become significantly more efficient. This efficiency resulted in the creation of a multitude of tools, resources, systems, and strategies that save time and money on your case.

At Meriwether & Tharp we focus on family law and divorce. Its what we do best.
Focus

Why hire a large divorce/family law only firm? You wouldn't hire your friend's real estate lawyer to do your divorce. Divorce isn't a generic law practice that any lawyer from another practice area can step into successfully and navigate. Divorce is vastly different from personal injury, criminal law, real estate, etc. An experienced dedicated family law/divorce lawyer can use their experience to explore strategies, recommendations, and options that other lawyers who practice in other areas may not be aware of.

No more worrying about what's going on in your case for weeks on end.

Full-Service Family Law Firm

Divorce is not a one size fits all practice. Even a great child custody lawyer might not be good with finances and vice versa. Having a larger firm allows us to use our combined experience in family and divorce to fill in any knowledge gaps. Smaller firms often do not have the resources or combined years of experience to be skilled in handling all potential issues that could arise. Our size and resources help you cover all your bases.

Depth of Experience

One of the biggest hidden advantages of our size is our depth of experience. Our size and number of attorneys mean that we have a lot more combined experience with local judges, opposing lawyers, expert witnesses, guardian ad litems, mediators, etc. This combined experience means that we've seen just about everything. We've dealt with nearly every possible family law issue. This might be your first divorce, but we've been through thousands.
