    A Genius Attorney for High Complex Litigations

    I had the privilege of working with Attorney Max Hanson during my divorce proceedings, which took place in Arizona while I reside in Lebanon with my three children. From the very beginning, Max demonstrated an exceptional ability to grasp the differences in the judicial systems and legal processes between the two countries. His knowledge of the laws and his dedication to continuously researching and expanding his understanding about the Lebanese laws, truly stood out, and we WON the children custody. Max’s ability to effectively communicate with the Lebanese witnesses, attorneys, and public notaries who were involved in my case, was impressive. Max was able to work with them, despite the international differences and constraints that were arising in my situation. His articulate communication skills and tactics played a crucial role in navigating throughout the case constraints, with high precision. Through his expertise and understanding of the laws and legal aspects, Max remarkably managed the unique complexities and was successfully conveying and explaining to the Judge, the nuances that were specific to my case. Throughout the divorce, Max showed exceptional persistence and dedication in safeguarding my interests; through the numerous obstacles that were arising by my ex-spouse and his high estates, lack of disclosures and complicated financial resources. Despite encountering significant challenges; obstruction of discovery, funds and assets concealment, undervaluation of marital home, distorted financial disclosure, taxes, and claims of sole and separate ownership, Max showed a profound understanding of these complicated financial matters and succeeded in unveiling the financial family web. Max meticulously collaborated with the forensic accountant, and skillfully exposed the inconsistencies, deceitful acts, and the attempts to obscure the true extent of my ex-spouse’s income and assets. Max and the forensic accountant were able to make compelling arguments and present irrefutable evidences. Their collaborative efforts paved the way for a robust defense that proved my rights and ensured that the true nature of the marital estate was accurately portrayed to the Judge at Trial and considered in the proceedings. Max is an attorney who possesses a range of qualities that set him apart and make him exceptional. He is patient, calm, and uses strategic tactics necessary to achieve success. Max has a unique ability and expertise that enables him to handle complicated and complex cases. He is honest in providing his transparent advice and never sugarcoats the reality. Additionally, Max’s calm nature and excessive preparation, allows him to navigate steadily through high-pressure situations, with high confidence and assurance. He is compassionate and understand the importance of addressing your concerns, ensures that you feel supported and very well informed throughout the legal process and during the Trial. Furthermore, Max is proactive, punctual, and never misses deadlines, ensuring that no opportunity is missed. He is meticulously attentive to details, leaving no stone unturned when it comes to gathering evidence and in building a strong case. With Max by your side, you can trust that you have a reliable and trustworthy advocate fighting rigorously and fiercely for your rights. He is dedicated to your success and works tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

    I've yet to retain this firm but Patricia Lenzner has been so helpful along the way both with my initial consultation as well as a follow up call. I will most certainly retain Ms Lenzner when the time is right. She's knowlegable, doesn't over promise and provides reasonable expectations and each chat with her has provided me with some personal emotional relief. I highly recommend Patricia Lezner. Once you consult with her, you'll know she's the one you want on your team.

    Attorney Michael Clonts and his team were compassionate, patient, efficient, kind and professional throughout the process. Michael is very knowledgeable and a strong advocate. We won, in several different ways, thanks to Michael. It is such a sad, hard time, obviously. I can't imagine there is a better law group to assist with the divorce process.

    The divorce process appeared and felt like an impossible situation since I didn't have a support system nearby. Then, I found Owens and Perkins! Attorney Clonts was brought onto my case partway through, but grasped the situation almost instantly, down to the fine details. He communicated quickly and directly. Anything legal is overwhelming for me, but I felt relieved when Mr. Clonts demonstrated his patience and created a clear path for me. I found someone that I could put my trust and faith in as he clearly proved his expertise consistently, which is important when going through life changes. It's been two years since my case ended. I recently had a question in regards to it and was able to speak with him directly without having to jump trough hoops to do so. I highly recommend this office! Thank you to everyone who gave me a positive experience through my negative situation!

    The firm is amazing. Michelle and her team really care about the clients that they help. I had a very stressful and challenging situation to deal with. Michelle took the time to understand it and gave me great advice and counsel all along the way. Her team was right on top of the details and they did it all with a personal touch that was authentic. Even when my business was over with them, they checked in a few times to make sure there wasn’t anything else that I needed which I really appreciated.

    I have been a client of Owens and Perkins since I started my business over 30 years ago. There were legal and business issues that I would have never been able to resolve without their help over the years, and I am eternally grateful for the professional services, friendship and mutual trust - all qualities that are hard to find these days.

    Owens and Perkins is truly the best law firm in Arizona.I first met Michelle Perkins in 2008 when I was seeking to get a legal separation from my husband. Since then I have used the firm for a variety of legal issues including a very complicated law suit.Michelle Perkins, Max Hanson, and the entire staff have been extremely helpful, supportive, caring, honest, informative, diligent in resolving issues, always looking out for my best interest......this firm is more than amazing!!!Michelle Perkins treated me like family. She was never too busy for me and always took the time to explain in detail every legal step and option. I always received the best legal advice no matter what type of legal issue I was battling. Michelle Perkins and Max Hanson fought for me and the end result was always in my favor. They are truly a blessing.Words cannot express the tremendous amount of gratitude I have for the entire staff's hard work on my behalf.USE THIS FIRM......you will not be disappointed.

    Patricia Lenzer represented me and I appreciated her professionalism and calmness. She was prepared for the worst but lucky for me it didn’t turn out to be as bad as I had feared. I would totally use Owens and Perkins again.

    In my opinion… look around for a better fit if you want results vs a transactional firm!A little back story… I agreed to settle my divorce because nothing in the first 3-4 months was being done in my favor. This was agreed upon in December (2023) with the expectations that it would be done then as I was starting a new job in January (2024) and would not be available during business hours for 6 months. Of course, it didn’t finish and yes… frustration kicks in, I began to be vocal and straight forward with them… apparently it was something they couldn’t handle. I’ve included the verbiage below used when they decided to withdraw before finishing the case but not after collecting about 18k. I’ve had more options with the defense attorney in the last week than I did with this firm.One star for their billing system though!* You’ve made it clear that you do not trust me or the legal system and that you feel both have failed you. Neither me nor the managing partner can connect with you to discuss this to find out where things went sideways. It’s frustrating because it appeared that we had a good working relationship up until then. At this point I think it’s best that we withdraw. The main items remaining in your matter are selling the house and signing the final documents. See attached and I will be sending you an electronic signature page for you to sign consenting to the withdrawal. *

    I had an empowering free legal consultation with Michael Conts regarding my ongoing divorce. I highly recommend Michael Conts to anyone seeking legal counsel in divorce or family law. He was compassionate to my situation and demonstrated a remarkable level of expertise and insight to the complexities of my divorce proceedings. He throroughtly reviewed my case prior to our consultation so no time was wasted in the free consultation. He is incredible sharp and quickly grasped the nuances of my situation and provided possible outcomes of my divorce, outlining the next steps and processes involved. His clarity and precision in explaining the legal landscape gave me a solid understanding of what to expect moving forward. He provided me with valuable strategy advice and how to hold my attorney accountable for their actions. His guidance enabled me to effectively communicate with my current lawyer and assertively request the necessary actions, including pursuing a refund for missed opportunities like spousal support. Mr. Clonts has a keen understanding of jurisdictional differences, recognizing that I was in a different county from where he normal practices. Despite this, he provided invaluable advice on why staying with my current lawyer would be beneficial. He conducted a quick rundown of my asset resolution, managing my expectations. He provided guidance on mediation and final court hearing equipping me with the knowledge to navigate potential challenges ahead. His guidance provided clarity on legal intricacies of my divorce and instilled confidence in my ability to navigate the process effectively. Thanks Michael!
