December 2019 – Recap and Community Service

By: Michelle J. Perkins, Esq.

To say this year has flown by is definitely an understatement. It seems like just yesterday we were all setting our resolutions for 2019. Although time may have eluded us, it’s been a wonderful year here at Owens & Perkins.

Our firm has always prided itself on giving back to the community, and this year we had a blast! We kicked off the year volunteering at Feed My Starving Children, packing over 43,848 meals for kids in Thailand. In anticipation of the Arizona summer, we participated in a “Beat the Heat” senior drive collecting summer essentials such as water, pre-packaged food, ice packs, fans and more for seniors in need. We were also able to give back by serving meals at the Ronald McDonald House for the families who were staying there.

The end of the year is a time for reflection as well as looking towards the future. Going through a divorce or family law matter can be an extremely challenging time, but it also allows for us to start anew towards a new chapter in our lives. Things are not always permanent in family law, and post decree modifications can allow for changes in the future.
