Jessica Hall obtained her law degree from John Marshall Law School in 2010. She started her career as a staff attorney to the State Court judges of Cherokee County, and then later became a solo practitioner.

Jessica’s passion for family law began after witnessing the heartache her brother experienced.  At the time, he was a young single dad.  He fought for his right to see his young daughter through the Court system for over a year.  While he finally won his case, Jessica felt that battle he endured was a travesty for him and his daughter.  As a solo practitioner, she found herself fighting for families even while she was handling criminal cases.  She would help her clients resolve their criminal matters so they could be better family members.  

She found it rewarding to help families and individuals work out their problems so they can be the best parents for their children.  As she began to approach every case this way, she also became acutely aware of the emotions and battles her clients navigate.  As her courtroom skills and litigation experience grew, so did her talents to help resolve tough family law matters.

Jessica chose Meriwether and Tharp, LLC because of their holistic, resolution-focused approach to family law, and the firm’s desire to better serve their client’s ultimate goals and needs. Beyond making a positive impact for her clients, Jessica looks forward to the personal and professional growth she will gain working with such an innovative firm.

When she isn’t practicing law, Jessica enjoys spending time with her young son, doing all things “boy,” and riding her beloved horse, Corwin.

Personable and knowledgeable
I spoke with Jessica Hall about my complicated child custody matter. She was very knowledgeable and personable. I am not going to hesitate in using her when the time comes to file my case. Her paralegal, Takiyah, was more then helpful and accomodating and i can confidently say i would reccomend them to anyone needing family law services!

Very Knowledgeable! Will Definitely Hire!
I was recently charged with some major felonies and have been on the verge of mental breakdown due to the fact that I am in no way guilty of anything. Ms Hall took the time to let me vent and then help me see there is hope for my situation and with proper representation the case shouldn't be too difficult to handle. I have been very impressed so far with this motivated young lady.

Took my money & dropped my case off the face of the earth!
I paid Jessica Hall a retainer fee of $1000 to represent me with my case, with a agreement to pay her another $700 with in a month. After about 2 weeks, with her basically just throwing ideas around, she literally started avoiding me. She blocked me from being able to send her emails as well as receiving phone calls & text messages. For ABSOLUTELY NO REASON AT ALL. Its been almost 2 months & I have yet to hear from her whatsoever. Not even an explanation.
