I acquired the services of Mr. Tharp last year when I was in need of legal counsel. Though the experience was an overwhelming, and intimidating one, he made the entire process smooth and manageable. He’s a consummate professional, well versed in the law, and he helped me to understand the process and what was to be expected. He was always available to answer questions I may have had, kept me well informed of any developments each step of the way, and eliminated the stress that these situations can pile on your shoulders. I’d definitely recommend his services to anyone in need of a competent, and compassionate lawyer.
