I used this site to find a reputable lawyer. I found that he was knowledgeable in the law however didn't do research on individual cases. Not at all what I thought I was getting. I did ok with my case but didn't feel enough was done. If your divorce seems lowkey then he would probably be fine. Mine was very cutthroat and needed a bulldog. He is not. As a dad I had a larger fight and that is what I needed.
I cannot say enough about the quality of the service that I received from Patrick Meriwether. From our very first meeting, I found Patrick to be honest, empathetic and accurate in the information that he provided. Divorce is a process filled with anxiety. Patrick gave me the information and action that I needed to help allevaite that stress.
I have and will continue to refer friends to Patrick Meriwether.
Mr. Meriwether was very courteous and spent a lot of time with me during my search for counsel. The free consultation was over 45 minutes and he provided very good advice. He was honest and understanding and helped me out on a number of complicated issues.
Leh Meriwether helped me work through a difficult post-divorce case with my ex-spouse involving parental alienation and other complex issues. He immediately provided recommendations that put my children's health and well-being first and to minimize any negative fallout. His immediate recommendations didn't even involve his legal services. When my initial attempts to get my ex-spouse into co-parenting counseling failed and she responded with threats and litigation, Mr. Meriwether and his team helped me formulate a strategy to minimize the negative emotional and financial costs.
On conclusion my children and ex-spouse are getting the counseling help they need, and all legal threats have been eradicated or mitigated giving me some peace of mind for the future as well. His team was so well prepared and capable that they were able to get opposing counsel to concede almost all issues during mediation and we were able to avoid court altogether. Now, most importantly, my children get a break from unneeded conflict between their parents. I strongly recommend you consult with them first before you get dragged into unnecessary and expensive legal battles. They are not just great lawyers, but great people.
I hired Leh to represent me in my divorce several years ago. He handled it with complete professionalism and ease. Because of the absolute confidence that he left me with, when I needed to file subsequent orders related to the case, I immediately chose his firm again. Through his guidance, Amy and Robin handled the two matters perfectly, and the Judges in all of the cases granted me everything that we asked for. If I ever need representation again, I will most definitely be calling Leh Meriwether!
I found Leh after spending 18 months with another attorney who had no idea what he was doing, lied to me on several occasions, hid court dates, depositions and other information from me, incited the opposition to drag things out , siphoned tens of thousands in legal fees from me and never once got me inside of a courtroom on a contempt case where the defendant "no doubt is guilty "according to the judge who finally heard the case in mediation. I came to Leh with my horrible experience with my past lawyer, a sour attitude and a case as stagnant as one could get having lost all of my advantages. Leh met with me, did his research and then sat me down and explained the true details of my case. None of which did my previous attorney have correct and much of which I did not like to hear. Leh could have saved me tens of thousands of dollars and 18 months of my life and extensive damages in my personal life. My goal in hiring Leh was damage control, but Leh suggested a creative new course of action that I had never heard of. At first, I was not happy with the idea and I let him know it too. But Leh being the patient and understanding guy that he is, got on the phone with me and walked me through the benefits of going the route he was suggesting. He won me over and within 4 months the defendant ended up settling with me because of Leh's suggestion, and I walked away being awarded a small amount of money and several non-monetary things I desperately needed to happen. I didn't recoup the lost money wasted on my previous attorney but I did get something out of that mess because Leh was creative, determined and honest with me the entire way. I have to also mention that his partner in crime, Elizabeth (also an attorney) was fantastic as well and having two minds on the case was extremely beneficial. Together, we turned a lost cause from damage control into a small win, which then led to a big custody win shortly thereafter which he handled for me as well. I highly recommend Leh and his team. In fact, I would say if you are reading this, it would be foolish of you to go anywhere else if your issue is divorce or custody related. They are creative, brutally honest, and set your expectations appropriately and then deliver what they promise if not more. If I had called them first, I would have come out on top and minimized my costs and personal damages caused by using a "win at all costs mentality lawyer" prior to Leh. But I am so glad I met them in the end and they will be my first call should I ever need help again. Thanks Leh, Elizabeth, Amy and team!
Leh was lead counsel to my divorce. Even though we met only once, he directed my divorce through his competent staff. Most notable were Charlotte and Amy. I felt that if things would not have gone according to plan, he would have find a solution which would have been as much as possible in my favor.
When I first hired Mr. Meriwether my intention was he would facilitate a non-contested divorce. As time went on it was obvious my spouse was not going to cooperate. I requested she seek separate council and I moved forward with Mr. Meriwether.
Ultimately with his skillful guidance, mediation and closure were quickly and favorably found.
Leh Meriwether of Meriwether & Tharpe LLC provided exemplary service during a very difficult time. I was thoroughly educated on how the process would work, supported to achieve my objectives in the best way possible, and they were patient in working with me for my goals. I felt very supported and heard by both Leh and Emily. I would highly recommend these attorneys.
Divorce is difficult, but everyone helped me get through it much easier by keeping me informed of my rights and how the case was proceeding. Very professional, thoughtful and punctual. I would recommend using this firm if you're facing a divorce.
