Attorney Profile

An associate at Meriwether & Tharp, LLC, Elizabeth Raskin focuses her practice exclusively on family law matters. From the firm's main office in Atlanta, Georgia, she provides advice and counsel to clients throughout the greater metropolitan area who are contemplating or going through a divorce and who are thus grappling with issues related to child custody and support, the division of complex assets and debts, and alimony and child support. While she often encourages her clients to come to an accord on these matters through such alternative dispute resolution techniques as collaborative law, mediation and negotiations, Ms. Raskin is also a tenacious courtroom advocate when litigation becomes necessary.

Ms. Raskin's other family law experience has included adoptions, the obtaining of the enforcement of or modification to existing support orders, and the representation of victims of domestic violence who are seeking protective orders. Her successes in and out of the courtroom have earned her an "Excellent" peer-review rating through Avvo.

Ms. Raskin is a graduate of Emory University in Atlanta, where she majored in international relations and affairs and earned a Bachelor of Arts in 2001. Her legal education came at the New York University School of Law, where she participated in the school's Family Defense Clinic before being awarded her Juris Doctor in 2004.

After graduation from law school, Mr. Raskin spent several years at the New York City office of a prestigious international law firm, where she handled a variety of commercial litigation matters. In September 2011, she moved back to Atlanta and joined the Atlanta Legal Aid Society. During her tenure there, Ms. Raskin focused on helping low-income clients with their domestic relations issues, before returning to private practice. She is admitted to practice before all Georgia and New York state courts.
