Scottsdale Divorce Lawyer | Owens & Perkins, Attorneys at Law

Michael J. Clonts, Esq.

Michael Clonts graduated from Syracuse University College of Law in New York (Let’s go, ‘Cuse!) with an emphasis on international, national security, and counterterrorism law, a background that serves him well in family law, where the stakes are even higher.

A lifelong native of Arizona, Michael returned to the Phoenix area to practice law after graduation. He now exclusively practices family law.

While in law school, Michael had unique opportunities for exposure to many types of law. For example, participating in local adoption clinics, performing research for the United Nations and helping international government contractors draft sound internal policies.

Michael even traveled abroad to study the legal system in the emerging democracy of South Africa.

Michael understands that family law is very emotional for all parties and he empathizes with each client’s unique situation. Helping clients navigate the life-changing legal challenges presented by family law cases is his primary goal.

When he has free time, Michael enjoys spending it with his wife and six children.

Some of his notable achievements include:

  • Lead Counsel Rated by Thompson Reuters for his experience, solid reputation and ethics.
  • Client’s Choice Award—Avvo 2018,2019
  • Top 10 under 40 for the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys in 2019
