About Meredith

Learn Meredith’s areas of practice.


Having been admitted to the bar in 2010, Meredith Gerhart has dedicated her legal career to various aspects of family law, specializing in divorce, legal separation, modifications to parenting plans, adjustments to child support, paternity matters, and relocations.

Beyond her private practice, Meredith serves as a Guardian ad Litem on the Thurston County Title 26 Guardian ad Litem registry. She frequently receives court appointments to advocate for young individuals in dependency proceedings initiated by the State of Washington.
In contrast to many of her peers, Meredith entered law school with a specific goal of becoming a family law practitioner. Her motivation stems from a steadfast commitment to minimizing potential harm to children involved in court proceedings, whether directly or indirectly. She actively engages in child-centered and trauma-focused representation on a daily basis, striving to protect the well-being of the most vulnerable members of the community.

Meredith's academic journey includes earning a cum laude Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics from Vanderbilt University, followed by obtaining her J.D. from Gonzaga University School of Law. During her tenure at Gonzaga, she distinguished herself as the Staff Editor of the Gonzaga Law Review.

"Meredith is hard working and dedicated. She also has a great sense of humor and a huge heart. She advocates for her clients, but is also reasonable to work with as an opposing counsel. She is also very generous with her time and energy, working as a court-appointed attorney and/or guardian ad litem in many instances."
