Marivonne Essex, also known as The Red Headed Lawyer, has over 31 years of private practice experience in Harris County and Montgomery County.

If you are going through a family struggle that may require legal advice, we can help with matters like the following:


Adopting a child is an exciting experience, but it can also be challenging, especially on legal terms. That is why you need a qualified attorney to represent your interests in court as well as to protect the child’s interests. Issues may include whether to have an open or closed adoption, along with possible legalities associated with adopting a child from another country, if that is the parents’ goal. Preparing a child for adoption by obtaining medical documentation and agency certifications can be facilitated by our law firm.


In some cases, divorce becomes inevitable, usually for serious reasons. One or both spouses then seek a permanent dissolution of the marriage, which must be processed through divorce court. While some marriages are ended in fairly simple terms, others can be very complicated, requiring extensive negotiation between the spouses or their attorneys. As a leading Conroe TX divorce attorney, Marivonne understands the potential difficulty of ending a long-term relationship, and will protect your rights respectfully and work consistently on your behalf for a fair outcome.

Child Custody and Support

Along with a divorce or the termination of a relationship between a couple who have had children together, child custody issues must be addressed, along with child support. These include matters like how much both parents will pay for the children’s living expenses, who pays medical bills or carries insurance for the children, and which schools they will attend, among other issues. Working with an attorney who specializes in this area of law can make the process more manageable and less stressful while protecting the children from the fallout that sometimes accompanies a broken relationship.

Family issues can be very painful and difficult to deal with, especially when going to court. Marivonne Essex can update you on current law and advise you on the best way to accomplish your goals.
