Marie Michelle Garcia’s main goal is to protect the rights of those often underserved. She advocates for her clients, serving as a trusted and able advisor.

Born and raised in Houston, Marie Michelle Garcia is a breath of fresh air in the construction community. She is an associate attorney at The Cromeens Law Firm and is a passionate individual who guides her clients through their toughest seasons. From the moment she passed the bar and was sworn in as a practicing attorney in Texas, it was instilled in her that the clients are important and to relate to them is to understand them. Understanding her clients – their dreams, goals, struggles, and background – allows her to represent them fully. She always treats her clients like family, not numbers. She thrives on referrals after providing personalized and prompt customer service. She strives to maintain the main traits that every client looks for in an attorney – the ability to communicate, understand, and protect thoroughly.
She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas State University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice and later enrolled at South Texas College of Law. While in law school, she was named to the Dean’s list, clerked for the Attorney General’s Office and the family courts in Harris County, and received the Family Law Award. Marie graduated Cum Laude from South Texas College of Law and earned her law degree in 2016. Prior to joining The Cromeens Law Firm, Marie worked for the law office of Boudreaux Hunter & Associates, LLC as a Law Clerk and advanced to Associate Attorney after passing the bar.
“I practice law because I care about people and have a passion for helping others. As a business owner, your company is an extension of you and represents your dreams, hard work, and dedication to your craft. And as an individual, you expect quality outcomes for the work you hired someone to complete to transform your vision into a beautiful reality. No matter what side of a dispute you are on, you are a good person going through a difficult situation, looking for protection and guidance tailored to you. As a member of The Cromeens Law Firm, that is what I am committed to doing for you, and I embrace that responsibility.”

Marie’s two passions in life are her family and singing. There is nothing she loves more in this world than being with her daughters and husband. The fact that her daughters love to sing as much as she does is just icing on the cake and they sing all the Disney songs together loudly and proudly.
