We take care of your divorce. You take care of your life.

How We Can Help

  • 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 ourbloghttp://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.
