    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!

    We enlisted Patricia Lenzner from O&P to help my wife's family with a probate for my departed BIL. Had a hiccup in the beginning with the life insurance policy and who gets what (reason for 4 stars and not five), but after that, her and her team were stellar. Always available and willing to help through a troubling time.

    I had to help an elderly relative through a divorce after her husband left her for another woman. She is hard of hearing and a little slow in her old age. She wanted an attorney that specializes in divorce. Attorney Clonts was so cordial, professional, ethical, and knowledgeable. Even the front desk attendant was so friendly.Attorney Clonts quickly analyzed the opposing attorney’s and court documents, interpreted them in simple easy-to-understand terms, and proposed a plan-of-action. He has a very kind demeanor, but also is quite eloquent. Attorney Clonts is very sharp and smart. He is passionate about truly helping his client. This is the attorney I would want if my life savings depended on it.

    Ok, let me be straight and to the point, Michelle is one bad a** attorney! She makes Harvey Specter look like a rookie. My ex came after me and my company for such an unreasonable amount, that when we went to Temp Orders Court and to Mediation, she was able to defend me in such a methodical and professional way that it made opposing counsel look like she brought a spoon to a gun fight! Michelle is smart and she cares. She’s not there to hurt your ex but rather show compassion by gently but directly showing the result of their bad decisions. She’s always 3-4 chess moves ahead of the other attorney, and she sees the whole board and how everything will play out.I wanted my ex to get enough so she was taken care of, but not to a point of hurting me. Michelle handily won, in my opinion, and although no one wins in a divorce, I certainly didn’t get raked over the coals like my ex’s attorney tried to do to me.I have already referred Michelle to two other friends and they think she is not just an incredible and savvy attorney, but she is kind and has the highest of integrity. She was able to negotiate a very amicable parenting plan for me and my children and did it with class and empathy.I interviewed 31 attorneys when my ex wanted to divorce. I’m an expert in hiring and it’s what I have done professionally for 30 years. I reduced it down from 31 to 5 attorneys and then 3rd round interviews with 2 attorneys, but truly she was my pick from the beginning. I’ve done more due diligence than probably anyone when seeking out the best divorce attorney in Maricopa County. You’re welcome! :)If you don’t choose her as your council, then you risk your ex hiring her and then you are going to lose. I tried to make this testimonial as straight shooting, so you don’t make a poor and uninformed decision.Michelle Perkins is your best decision to represent you and the needs of your children. I am so grateful for all her help through one of the toughest times of my life.

    I have used now two different lawyers from Owens and Perkins and have never been happier with the service they provide and the interpersonal connections they make with their clients are unmatched! If you are looking for a lawyer who truly sees you as a person and not a paycheck, I highly suggest Owens and Perkins!!

    I did some research prior to enlisting Owens & Perkins to assist in my divorce and saw good reviews. We met and I liked everything I heard, so I hired them. They operated in a very professional manner, were prompt and efficient, and ended up getting me a reasonable settlement in spite initial ridiculous claims coming from the other side. They enlightened me on several issues that were to my advantage and we were able to use those to leverage my ex-wife to a settlement absent several assets she was after. Michael Clonts in particular, was on top of the case and provided excellent counsel. He gets my highest recommendation.

    My recent divorce after almost 30 years of marriage was handled by Attorney Patricia Lenzner. This divorce was anything but routine and despite living 2,000 miles away, I felt like she was around the corner. This legal process was important to me and it was also important to her. Atty Lenzner was very knowledgeable and very timely with communication which was reassuring during an uncertain time. It was in my best interest to go to trial and she was professional, organized and respected by the judge. I would certainly recommend her and Jordan for any legal matter. My many thanks to both of them!

    Michelle Perkins was very communicative, clear, and forthright setting expectations about the specific services I inquired about. Once hired, she continued to meet each expectation she set in a timely, organized, and efficient manner. 2 years after working together an important follow-up concern arose, and Michelle jumped right back in to help resolve it quickly.

    Attorney Patricia Lenzner fought for me, always came thru when needed, is skilled, professional, and was able to highlight angles of law that applied to my case for me to come to a reasonable settlement without having to go to trial.

    I highly recommend this firm due to the level of care I experienced. There was always a kind, friendly voice on the other end of the line no matter the time or day of the week. It really did feel like a small family. Billing was timely and very detailed. Any questions were addressed quickly. I also very much appreciated being checked in on after a tough trial. Owens & Perkins and Attorney Michael J. Clonts, Esq., made what could have been a very difficult, confusing and overwhelming time for me a much better and clearer experience and for that I am truly grateful to them.

    I cannot express how grateful I am to have worked with Michael Clonts and Janet on my case. Despite the frustration imposed by the other party and the courts, I always felt communicated with and supported by both of them. It’s thanks to them that my family was reunited. It’s thanks to them that I got back to some semblance of “normal”. Thank you Michael for making me feel like family and working so hard to get things straightened out. We really could not have done it without you.

    I do not recommend hiring Michael Clonts. I worked with him through a high profile divorce and I felt he was only interested in getting deals signed even if the deal is not in my best interest. He did not advise me or guide me in any way whatsoever. He did not request discovery or disclosure of any information from opposing party. He also takes too much time off so it is difficult to be in contact with him. I regret hiring him to work on my case and I am now working with a different attorney trying to undue and rectify the damage already done.

    So many great things to say about Michelle and her law firm. She has helped two generations of our family make the right decisions when it comes to estate planning and financial advice. She is a true professional and a stellar attorney. She stays on top of everything and does it all with a great sense of humor. We had some complicated family and real estate issues and she guided us through everything. I am an attorney myself and I cannot recommend her enough! It is truly a pleasure working with her.

    I am very pleased with my choice to hire Ms. Lenzner to help in my divorce proceedings. There were quite a few twist and turns in my particular case and Patricia was able to handle them all with ease. I especially liked the fact that Patricia values honesty and integrity over the typical lawyers tactics, unlike my husbands lawyer, for example. She remained ethical throughout the entire process and I would fully recommend her to anyone facing such a difficult time in their lives.

    Michael Clonts is the most amazing family lawyer I've ever had the opportunity to know and have represented me in my family case. He is organized, understanding, knowledgeable, and fair. He shows patience and dedication in and out of the courtroom. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a strong lawyer who cares.
    I have used Owes and Perkins for my divorce. They did and exceptional and professional job handling every aspect of my divorce.I would highly recommend this law firm to anyone. The entire staff is so friendly and always happy to assist you with your questions. I recently had a problem with an old divorce retrieving personal property and Trish was amazing and openly willing to help me out with my ex husband. I truly can’t thank her enough for her kindness.

    Imagine my delight at finding an attorney who is personable, knowledgeable, empathetic and straightforward. Michelle Perkins actively listened to my sordid tale of being the executor of a sticky family estate issue and with kindness, much needed levity and sincerity she quickly clarified the role and guided me to a simple solution that other attorneys I had spoken to had not presented as a legal option.I am very happy I was convinced to contact one more attorney. From start (quick online form) to resolution, everyone I spoke to at Owens & Perkins was professional and personable. I would highly recommend.
