Attorney Arpita Legha practices Family Law, Complex Divorces, Custody Disputes, Child Support Disputes, and other family law matters.

Ms. Legha is a member of the prestigious State Bar of Texas Bar College, which requires 45 hours of Continuing Legal Education followed by 30 hours each subsequent year. She was also appointed by the Indian Consular General to serve as a consulting attorney to India's legal team for domestic abuse. Attorney Legha was also appointed to DAYA Houston, where she offers her legal services to domestic abuse victims.

Arpita was born in New Delhi, India and moved to Houston, Texas in 2002. While her peers were graduating high school, Arpita received a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance at the age of just 19 years old.

Arpita's family law practice specifically deals with complex property divisions, high net worth divorces, child custody battles, negotiations, and mediations. Her background in business and tax provides Arpita a unique perspective into her clients' emotional and financial needs. While being compassionate for her clients, Arpita has the ability to arm her clients with the knowledge they need to make sound decisions regarding their case and foreseeable future.

Arpita started her career as an international tax planning attorney at PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP, one of the top 4 accounting firms in the world. Missing the personal aspect of practicing law, Arpita quit her corporate job and became a family law attorney. She fell in love with family law and the people she helped navigate life changing events. Immediately prior to co-founding Oxner Legha, Arpita was the lead attorney managing a docket of over 50 family law cases.

Arpita, her husband, Jagroop, along with their two dogs, Romeo and Storm, are proud residents of Houston, Texas. In her free time, Arpita loves to play the drums.

Legal Answers
Q. I am only custodial parent. Someone else withdrew my daughter from school without my permission she is 16. Legal?
A: I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing this during this time. It does not sound like the actions to withdraw your daughter from school were legal. You most likely need to file an enforcement action or another motion to have your daughter brought back to you based on the custody agreement or orders. I would suggest that you setup an over the phone consultation with an attorney who can review what is in place and how to take the necessary steps to get your daughter to return home and re-enroll her in school.
