Attorney Profile

About the Attorney:
Since 2000, Mr. Meriwether has focused seventy percent (70%) of his practice on family law and thirty percent (30%) on business law. Through time, he has found that family and business law complement each other well in practice, as his skills from one area transfer easily to the other. Business litigation cases tend to require fewer Court appearances, but the family law cases of Mr. Meriwether's practice has afforded him the opportunity to appear in Court more often and hone skills necessary both for family law and business litigation. Mr. Meriwether's business litigation and transactional work provide the experience and ability to examine and tirelessly move through financial documents, both for business cases, including personal and small businesses, as well as family law cases involving large marital estates in need of equitable division.

At the 2007 Georgia State Games, he won the gold in his division. He also volunteers his time as a moderator and facilitator of Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University, a 13 week program that helps people dump their debt, get control of their money and learn new behaviors around money that are founded on commitment and accountability. The course is extremely helpful to couples who are having difficulty communicating about money and teaches them how to work together for their family financial future.
