By: Michelle J. Perkins, Esq.
I am not sure where the time goes, but it goes very quickly. I have now been the Managing Partner of Owens & Perkins for almost 20 years. As that milestone approaches, I decided to look back over the years and reflect on our accomplishments. I am very proud of our legal team, the excellence they demand from themselves and the professional recognition we receive as a result.
I think the biggest difference between our firm and many others is that we actually care about our clients and we care about the outcome of the case. One of the attorneys in our office was actually chastised this week by an opposing attorney, who said the O&P lawyer “cared too much”. How ridiculous is that? It’s a sad state of affairs when a lawyer is questioned by opposing counsel as to why she cares about her client, the work she is doing and obtaining a fair result. I wish more lawyers cared. It would certainly make the system work a lot better.
We have been rewarded immensely by recognitions and awards that directly reflect on the pride we take in our work and the care, concern and compassion we have for our clients. To name a few, we are an AV rated firm, which means we have been awarded the highest possible rating in both legal ability and ethical standards. We have been named as Arizona’s Top Lawyers for consecutive years and we have received Awards of Excellence for our customer service, strong code of business ethics and outstanding service to the legal community.
While we are proud of our accomplishments and recognitions in the professional realm, we are most proud of the recognitions and awards we receive as a result of client initiatives. We have received the Avvo Clients’ Choice award, Martindale-Hubbell Client Distinction Award and 10 Best Client Satisfaction.
As we move into the holiday season, I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of our clients for entrusting us with your legal matters and for giving us the opportunity to show each of you that we do actually care and that this does make a huge difference in the legal representation we provide. We are honored to serve each of you.
