"During my recent divorce I was truly blessed to have been represented by Jason Karasik, Esq. at Meriwether & Tharp, LLC. Jason used his knowledge to recognize and address any issue that my unique situation threw at him. Jason is dedicated and had my best interest in mind at all times. Throughout the entire process Jason kept me informed each and every step of the way, in a cost effective manner. Jason always took the time to make sure that I understood and without exception was there to return my phone calls if something came to mind. Jason worked tirelessly on my case and he was thorough and very well prepared for mediation ... not only did my team exceed my expectations but the settlement was better than I could have ever imagined. There are no words to express my gratitude...you have truly changed my life and my future looks brighter."
"Jason Karasik is the best lawyer I have had the pleasure to work with. He did an amazing job to get my somewhat complicated divorce finalized in a very quick and very easy process for me. He made sure to get everything I needed from it, and always with a smile and a kind word. He made what could have been a very sad and hard time in life feel happy and easy. Jason helped me to be able to move on and start the next chapter in my life and for that I will always be so greatful. There is nothing I would do to change or improve the way he did things because he handled everything perfectly. I will definately reccomend him to anyone I know who is in need of a divorce or any kind of family law help."
