Reasons you’ll love the “The Red Headed Lawyer”

Family Law Attorney Serving River Oaks

Marivonne Essex has been providing expert legal services and representation to clients in the River Oaks, Upper Kirby, Greenway Plaza and Afton Oaks areas of Houston for over 30 years. Well known in Southeast Texas as the “Red-Headed Lawyer,” Ms. Essex specializes in family law and handles what are arguably the most sensitive case topics for families.

Why is the Essex Law Firm the best choice for family law matters in the Houston area?

After more than 30 years of practice in the Houston area, we are intimately familiar with the Texas judicial system, the nuisances of the Harris County and surrounding courts and the ins and outs of Texas family law. And unlike many practices, Marivonne Essex believes in the three “Cs” – communication, consultation and cost-effectiveness.

Communication – We answer all phone calls, emails and texts within a 24-hour period – no excuses. And we set up a client portal with our clients so that as events occur, they can provide us with all the details while everything is still fresh. This trail of information can be essential in a case and will save time and money for clients.

Consultation – The Essex Law Firm offers reasonable rates for our initial family law consultation as well as for wills and probate cases. On your appointment (generally lasting one hour), we will get down to business immediately, and you will leave with a comprehensive understanding of how your case will be handled and the different steps of the legal process. Your time is valuable and we will be sure it is well-spent.

Cost-effectiveness – Ensuring your time is spent wisely is far from our only concern – we spend your money as if it were our own. After evaluating your case, we will provide our best, completely honest legal opinion on what results you are likely to achieve. We will fight for you but will never sugarcoat the facts.

At Essex Law, we are sensitive to the health of our clients and are happy to hold virtual meetings via Zoom, FaceTime or Skype. Please use the form below to contact us, or if you are ready, book your appointment today:

There are so many different ways lawyers charge! Some say flat fee, some say retainer, some say flat fee for this or that, retainer and hourly rate for something else. At Essex Law Firm, P.C., every case is a flat-fee case, specifically geared to you. This means you know up-front exactly what your case is going to cost and you don’t pay for what we don’t do. (We even offer an electronic funds transfer (EFT) payment plan and you can make payments via LawPay.)

She has practiced many times in front of almost every judge in Harris and Montgomery counties. She lets you know what to expect from your court and your judge.


Every lawyer must pass the Texas bar exam and be licensed to practice in Texas. Beyond that, what do you need? You need a Houston, Woodlands, Conroe divorce attorney who keeps up with the law, attends continuing legal education events regularly, and is not too busy to do what is necessary to win for you, including doing research if necessary.
