Attorney Arpita Legha, a cofounding partner of Oxner Legha, PLLC, exclusively focuses and manages the Family Law section of the firm.

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. Thereafter, Arpita received her Law Degree from Thurgood Marshall School of Law where she graduated Magna Cum Laude, followed by a Masters in Law (LL.M.) in Tax Law at the University of Florida Levin School of Law.

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 cofounding Oxner Legha, Arpita was the lead attorney managing a docket of over 50 family law cases.

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, 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.

Beyond exceptional
They genuinely care about their clients and made me feel like my case was always a priority. When looking for a law firm, I tried to find one who could help with my complex case. I went down a list that came up on google and no law firm was willing to touch my case, until I came across Oxner Legha Law Firm. They went above and beyond what I could have ever expected and I walked away more than satisfied with how my case turned out. I have gone back to them for all my needs and will continue to do so. I could never imagine going to anyone else.

Arpita Legha, compassionate family law attorney
If you or anyone you know is going through one of the toughest things to deal with in life such as a divorce and/or seeking legal custody of children, I highly recommend Arpita Legha and her team. She is an intelligent, articulate attorney that possesses great empathy towards a most difficult situation. I was very sad to find myself in the situation where I felt divorce was the best option but knew that I needed help to navigate this and am so fortunate I had Arpita by my side through this journey. From the moment I walked in for a consultation, it was very clear that Arpita was first and foremost, a compassionate, honest and caring human being who was invested in helping me through the process over all else. She was the first attorney I met with and I hired her that day, didn’t need to interview any others. I was confident she was the best person to guide me through this divorce and she proved me 100% correct. She was ALWAYS extremely communicative, straight forward and accessible. No matter how much time passed between our communications, she was continually dedicated to knowing all the details of my case. Her fees were affordable, and she happily worked with me to formulate a payment plan that I was comfortable with. She was consistent in meeting any deadlines discussed and honest in any challenges she foresaw. When I was led by emotion, she understood behaviors we encountered that I still did not and made sure that she was successful in looking out for the best interest of myself and my children. For this I am extremely grateful. Arpita was a fierce advocate for me and I couldn’t have gotten through the process without her. Even though my divorce was final a year and a half ago, she still calls and checks in with me periodically to see how the kids and I are doing … this is the biggest thing that sets her apart from other family law attorneys, SHE SINCERELY CARES.

Invaluable Ally
Ms. Legha represented me in a divorce. She always had my best interest in mind, listening and responding to what I was saying. She offered pros and cons in every discussion, and always respected my opinions Ms. Legha is very thorough and knowledgeable and led me through the process effectively. After the hearing, she gave me specific instructions concerning my responsibilities concerning documents and changes to be made. Any questions that arose, she researched thoroughly. Her staff is outstanding and very responsive to any request. The entire group is highly intelligent and at the same time most personable and concerned about their clients.

Arpita was invaluable in all stages of my divorce. I felt safe and comfortable moving through the process because the focus was always on the well being of my two year old and myself. She was always very transparent and gave me the best advice that met our needs. She was "real", and during a process like divorce, I couldn't have asked for anything more. I truly felt taken care of.

I highly recommend Arpita Baweja.
Because of Arpita, I have my children. I had an extremely difficult case and because of Arpita’s skills as a lawyer, I was able to get my children back. Arpita is an excellent lawyer, that not only understands the law, she has the ability to apply the law to win your case. Beyond her great skills as a lawyer, Arpita is also an intelligent individual, who thinks well on her feet, both in and out of the courtroom, to get you the results you want. Arpita has a keen understanding of the family court system and uses that knowledge to take the necessary steps to assist you to obtain what you want in your case. On a more personal note, Arpita is a nice person. Throughout a case, Arpita will provide supportive words to ensure her client’s well-being, an important factor during a challenging time in one’s life. Finally, she will work tirelessly to make certain you get results in your case. Arpita is truly an excellent attorney. I highly recommend her
