Great experience
Lisa Marie Chambers and her team were top notch. I met them in July 2018 and my divorce was final November 2018. Our divorce was not contested but it was a little complicated because of all the assets we accumulated. Lisa Marie and her team took the time to understand and execute a fair split of assets in a professional and timely manner. They also helped me keep my perspective to the end goal and keep the divorce as amicable as possible. In mediation, I felt well represented with their knowledge and professional attitudes. I highly recommend this team should you need a divorce attorney.

Great Attorney
Lisa has been my attorney through my divorce and a child support modification. She is always willing to answer any question I have and always puts my mind at ease when we are finished consulting. I have nothing but positive comments about Lisa and the Meriwether and Tharp Law Offices. Legal proceedings are not fun, but knowing you have someone like Lisa on your side helps.

Quality Ethical Treatment
Lisa Marie Chambers and the rest of my team were fantastic. They listened and were sensitive about the manner in which I wished to proceed. I got exactly what I wanted, which was solid legal guidance and documentation. I was well informed along the way, was able to make needed changes to the agreement, and was thus able to avoid a lengthy and expensive court battle. Highly recommended.

Exceptional Attorney and Highly Recommended!
I could not have asked for a better attorney to represent me during my lengthy divorce. I have lots to say about Lisa Marie, so please read on if you’re searching for an honorable and knowledgeable attorney. I contacted Meriwether and Tharp in July 2015 and was recommended Lisa Marie Chambers. We had an initial phone consultation and then met in person to discuss the details of my divorce. She gave me her undivided attention and offered excellent advice during this difficult time. I immediately noticed that Lisa Marie is not only very familiar with all pertaining laws, but she is very honest and truly cares about the people whom she represents. The divorce process continued for over a year and a half due to an unwavering and aggressive opposing side. Lisa Marie was very aware of the costs associated with an unnecessarily aggressive approach, so she refused to respond to the opposing side with reactive aggression. Her main focus is to come to a quick and fair outcome, based on laws and equity, to relieve all parties of additional financial and emotional stress. Through the ups and downs, she always made time to thoughtfully respond to me and consistently offered me level-headed advice. She is passionate about her job as a family law attorney and it showed in every single communication between the two of us. Lisa Marie is dedicated-worker, is patient and understanding, is very knowledgeable of the law, and honestly believes in justice and equality. I would recommend her to anyone as a family law attorney!

Excellent representation in a complicated divorce case
Lisa Marie Chambers provided superior legal representation in my divorce case which had many unanticipated twists and turns. Lisa Marie effectively dealt with each new issue and gave me reassurance during a very stressful divorce process. She is very professional and easily accessible by phone and email. She is easy to talk to and gives sound legal advice. Lisa Marie was well-prepared for mediation and I was very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend her for anyone going through a divorce, especially when the other party is not cooperative in the process.

Outstanding Attorney
Lisa recently represented me during divorce proceedings with a litigious ex-wife and provided outstanding legal advice and representation. I was very pleased with all aspects of her legal service as well as her communication and responsiveness. I highly recommend her and the MT law firm.

Visitation Modification/Contempt Cases
I have been involved in an extensive family law case involving change of visitation coupled with multiple contempt of court charges. Lisa Marie Maksymczak was able to deal with an extremely aggressive and hostile opposing counsel all the while providing strength, knowledge and comfort to this client. Her attention to detail and thorough knowledge of the law proved tantamount to the success of the case. Lisa was always professional, accessible, and approachable, providing constant communication and assurance as to the status of the case. I would strongly recommend Lisa for any family law needs because of her expert knowledge of the law, thoroughness to detail and ability to be a symbol of strength and comfort during a very difficult time period.

Incredibly professional, responsive and knowledgeable!
Lisa Marie was a tremendous asset throughout my divorce. I couldn't have made it without her knowledge, guidance and support. She was also very patient with me and took the time to listen.

Client-child support
Lisa Marie was instrumental in providing the quality service I received while working with Todd Orston. Her attention to detail and professionalism in the courtroom was far beyond my previous experiences with other attorneys. She was always available by phone for consultation and provided sound legal advice on the many complex matters I was dealing with. I would recommend Lisa Marie to anyone who is looking for a superior family law attorney.

I wish I had walked away.
I spent an entire years salary in legal fees over the course of 15 months with Meriwether & Tharp and in my opinion I have very little to show for it. Lisa Marie Chambers was the attorney partner Georgetta Glaves-Innis assigned me to though in the latter took charge of my case towards the end. By then it was too late. Maybe had Ms. Glaves-Innis been keeping a closer watch I'd have had a better result. I did not receive custody arrangements that I was satisfied with, and only a third of my legal fees my ex-husband caused me to incur by dragging out the process, and little more than a quarter of the equity in the home my ex-husband and I had bought together. When I spoke to Ms. Glaves-Innis about how they handled my case she initially apologized but later when I spoke to her again she told me they did what they could within the parameters of the legal system. This may be accurate, but Ms. Chambers did a poor job by not answering my questions and returning my emails. Towards the end both Ms. Chambers & Ms. Innis would often avoid any type of communication, once actually not allowing me to even make an appointment to speak to anyone on my legal team. Eventually I had to take a day off to go up to their office and demand to speak to someone regarding my case / to find out why no one would talk to me. An entire years salary in legal fees and nothing to show for it means I either was taken advantage of or had poor legal representation, you can decide which. They never got full discovery, even though I explained he was hiding money and lying about his income; this was later corroborated by his own sister unfortunately after trail. They decided not to bother applying for temporary support, which resulted in me being without financial help caring for my daughter for almost a year. Ms. Chambers also misled me on possible settlements until right before trial when she then informed me it would basically be a wash. This meant they had literally been charging me to fight for nothing but encouraging me to do so in the hopes of getting me funds to cover legal fees incurred. My mistake may have been paying my bills in full as they came in and exposing myself as a soft target. These are the more major things that I can remember as it was a very traumatic time in my life. I hired Meriwether & Tharp to protect me and guide me through the process, not guide me to their pockets. Whichever lawyer you choose, protect yourself so you don't end up like I did; chewed up and spit out. Follow up every call with an email covering what you discussed, and keep notes. I did not know that I would need to protect myself against my own lawyers. Please learn from my mistake.

She is a great attorney that truly understands the balance of zealous advocacy and practical solutions to settle a case. She always considers a client's ROI when making decisions.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. My first experience with Lisa Marie was as opposing counsel in a difficult case that did not settle until at trial (through no fault of hers). She was working with Todd Orston at the time. She was zealous in her representation of her client and had a firm command on the law. But, she was always open to discussing the case to work towards a compromise. Even though she was previously opposing counsel, we were excited when she joined our team a year later to work with us. Now having had a chance to work with her, I know that she approaches her cases from a practical as well as legal standpoint. Sometimes the Courtroom option is not the best, and she works with her clients to resolve their cases rather than just litigate them."
