About me

At the Law Offices of Meriwether & Tharp, LLC, our goal is to provide clients with the strong and skilled legal representation they need to successfully resolve issues relating to divorce and other difficult legal matters.  Our attorneys practice in the areas of divorce and family law, and routinely handle matters related to divorce, child support and child custody, enforcement of existing orders (i.e. contempt actions), preparation of pre- and postnuptial agreements, separation agreements, family violence, juvenile law, adoption, and any and all other family law related issues.  Additionally, Todd A. Orston is a licensed mediator, collaborative law practitioner, and guardian ad litem.  We know that  these types of legal matters can be very stressful on our clients, and we have the skills and experience needed to provide our clients with the tough representation they need.  We approach and handle every case with a high level of professionalism that clients have a right to expect from lawyers, and we believe that strong representation does not require unreasonably litigious behavior. Settlement is very often the best, most cost-effective option, but if settlement is not possible after good-faith efforts are made, my 15+ years of experience as a criminal prosecutor and civil litigator provide my clients with the strong representation they need in the courtroom.
