About Robert

A partner with Meriwether & Tharp LLC, Robert L. Tharp offers legal representation to people in Atlanta and Johns Creek, Georgia. He focuses his practice on family law, handling cases involving divorce, child custody, contempt actions, modifications to child support and alimony, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, paternity, family violence, grandparents' rights, divorce and military divorce. In 1993, Mr. Tharp graduated from Emory University with a Bachelor of Arts. He then studied law at Emory University School of Law and received his Juris Doctor in 1996. That same year, he was admitted to practice law in the state of Georgia. Family law matters are often difficult for people to go through, given the intense emotions that are involved. Mr. Tharp understands this and sits down with clients to help them put these emotions aside. He then educates clients about their rights and options, giving them the ability to make decisions that will be of benefit to them at the current time, as well as in the future. Mr. Tharp believes in trying to achieve results for clients amicably but will take the matter into a courtroom, if necessary. He is known for his great compassion and respect for clients' feelings and challenges. Civic involvement is important to Mr. Tharp. He has been involved with various debate projects including extensive involvement in the formative years of the Atlanta Urban Debate League. For his efforts in this area, Emory University presented Mr. Tharp with the Warren Akin Outstanding Alumni Contribution award.
