Wow! Joann jumped on board to help with my particularly “arduous” divorce after about a month in. Over the next 16 months, Joann proved to be not only an exceptional family law attorney, but also a tremendous person.
I could not have asked for a more knowledgeable and compassionate justice-seeker. She’s mastered every facet of family law; from custody to finances, to case law, examination, and the list goes on. I was never left without answers and was always provided excellent guidance.
Divorce is not simply getting what you think you deserve. None of us do. While Joann helped me to maintain healthy optimism throughout, she made it clear that in the end, one person will decide what the outcome is.
Despite the incredible difficulties and emotional ride that the divorce threw my way, Joann assisted me by not only paving the way for an equitable outcome, but she helped to lay the foundation for emotional recovery along the way. Joann understands the psychology behind family law and her comforting support is equally as strong as her legal prowess. She dealt with my emotional ramblings and was always patient and positive in her responses. Having her as a steady, compassionate, and (uncommonly) brilliant attorney was essential to a just outcome.
An interesting tidbit is that she’s the only person that I’ve ever seen to have the ability to track and write about different topics ambidextrously at the same time!
I will be forever grateful for the exceptional representation and compassion shown during my lengthy divorce. I obviously highly recommend Joann Brown Williams.

My grandson was being taken away from my son by his paternal grandparent. If it had not been for Mrs. Joann Williams taking our case we would have lost custody and all contact with him. Mrs Williams and my son had to file an appeal because a Judge gave my grandson away. Mrs. Williams won that appeal she is a great lawyer and me and my son will be eternally grateful for what she did for us.

I spoke with Ms. Williams for over an hour. My son has a custody case against the paternal grandmother in Cobb County. I wanted to speak with Ms. Williams to discuss a strategic plan just in case the Judge gave custody to the grandmother and my son would move forward with an appeal (my son's current Attorney doesn't do appeals - hence, why I'm looking at other Attorneys). First, Ms. Williams explained the appeal process and then she gave amazing legal advice and provided questions that my son's current Attorney should ask the GAL during cross examining. She explained that there would be certain things in the transcript that would make his case easier. Ms. Williams was extremely passionate about the Law and I would hire her in a minute if the current case is won by the Grandmother.

I would like to say that Joann is an awesome lawyer who made my complicated divorce and all the legal speak easy to understand and follow. She always kept the best interest of my kids and I in mind. She is very straight to the point and will go to bat for you and your cause. My case was not that big but is was mine and Joann made it hers and I appreciate all of her experience in the process. Her knowledge and prior relationships with the relevant involved parties allows her to navigate smoothly and precisely to go for the best outcome for her clients. All you have to do is follow her guidance and direction and she will bring you through your case. Thanks Joann. Job well done.

After being blind-sided my ex-husband who currently resides in another state and petitioned for a modification of custody while the children were visiting him during the summer vacation; I quickly had to gain legal representation and counsel within three weeks as a court date was scheduled to modify the custody.
As fate would have it, I was able to Google search attorneys in Atlanta GA. Meriwether & Tharp, LLC was the first search result, after a five minute conversation with a representative from Meriwether & Tharp a free consultation was set up. After traveling to Georgia, I was able to sit down with my attorney, Joann Williams. Joanne’s legal mind and presentation is simply breathe- taking, she is professional, empathetic and highly effective and efficient all wrapped into one complete legal package! Her direction and advise was highly needed and necessary to me, without these unique qualities I would have not been able to endure the vigorous torment of the court proceeding. I had lost both verbal and physical contact of my children for the entire summer, and the court hearing was the first time I had seen my children in months. Joanne’s preparation and legal direction was instrumental in this hearing. Joann and Todi Hedrick, (Certified Paralegal) make a tremendous team. Todi is patient and highly detailed as she was able to explain each court document and reason why the documents needed to be submitted to the courts. If I had to best describe this team as Super Hero’s , I would choose “Bat-Woman and Robyn”! They are phenomenal. The hardest thing I had to do as a mother was fight for the best interest of my children in a court of law; this is a storm that no one person could ever prepare for. If it were not for Joanne and Todi being the “silver lining to the cloud” in this storm; I would not have been able to endure this heart breaking experience without the legal, emotional, and mental support of this team! This team is amazing and highly recommended to any person who needs the silver lining, and glimpse of hope during a life changing event.

I can't imagine a better lawyer than Joann. Divorce, by itself, has been a difficult thing to go through, and Joann made the business-side of the ordeal--well, easy. She was with me at every turn and always looked out for my best interest--especially pointing out things I didn't even know I needed to be aware of in order to protect the interests of my kids and me.
Joann was diligent, thoughtful, attentive, and a pleasure. While my divorce was pretty amicable and uncontested, I know that if necessary she would have gone to the mat for me. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know in need of representation.

While David Beaudry (of Meriwether & Tharp) was initially representing me, due to scheduling conflicts, David was kind enough to ask Joann Brown-Williams to fill in for him at my first court appearance rather than postponing it. (Thank you, David.) While I was very skeptical of Joann, being that we had never previously met, she rose to the occasion and knocked the ball out of the park! She was assigned my case on a Thursday, just a few days before the first scheduled court appearance, studied my case over the weekend and was able to strike an acceptable deal on the following Monday morning, the morning of my court case, thus saving me an arduous and expensive trial. She is truly a practical genius and very passionate in the representation of her clients. I cannot say enough good things about her.
Kudos to Joann Brown-Williams, David Beaudry and his entire team at MW&T including Scarlett Wolf, their paralegal. Scarlett's knowledge and professionalism equals that of an attorney. Scarlett was able to do much of the footwork, thus saving me expense. I am eternally grateful to all of you.
If I have but one piece of advice for those behind me... those needing exceptional representation in a divorce or those unsatisfied with their current representation, do yourself a favor and call Joann or David at Meriwether & Tharp (678-879-9000) for a complimentary consultation. For me, in hindsight, it was the best decision I could have made.

Joann helped me through my divorce process which was very emotionally draining. She, literally, held my hand every step of the way and was a very calming and reassuring presence. She made sure I was informed at every turn and did her best to expedite the entire thing. I highly recommend her and her firm.
