My case never seemed to go anywhere and the billings added up way beyond what was offered. We never even made it to a hearing and the bills were double what was promised.

Many, many thanks to Melissa Bowen and the team at Meriwether & Tharp. The road has been a long one, but their support was far above expectation. They went above and beyond at every point. They provide virtually immediate feedback to questions and requests for help along the way. Not only do they know what they're doing and provide amazing service, they actually care on a personal level about their clients' well-being. When a person has little to no knowledge about something as important as what they do each day, trust is vital to maintaining sanity and a level head. Without doubt, I trust Melissa, Ashley, and Meriwether & Tharp and readily recommend them at any opportunity.

Melissa represented me in a contested child custody case and I couldn't have asked for better representation. The stress involved in my case was overwhelming but Melissa always took the time to explain each step thoroughly and to keep me informed of potential outcomes along the way. Her extensive knowledge and understanding of the case law and the Courts involved in my case was astounding. Her presentation to the Court was extremely professional and her dedication to her craft kept me completely calm during a difficult time in my life. Melissa is a dedicated advocate and I am so grateful to have had her represent me.

I have had the pleasure of working with Melissa on several matters. Melissa has an exceptionally strong eye for detail that has been a benefit in all cases. Melissa also has a strong sense of organization that has helped her to gain the upper-hand in court. Melissa is an extremely talented attorney who cares a great deal about her clients and I respect her dedication to settlement.
