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. A big THANK YOU to her and also to Jordan at the O&P office for all her help!!

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.

I have used this law firm for 20+ years. Michelle Perkins is the best lawyer in the states. She has handled several cases for me over the years and the quality and professionalism cannot be matched by any other law firm. Not only does this amazing group of lawyers dedicate everything they have to there clients but Michelle herself is unstoppable in court. Her knowledge of the law is vast and her genuine personality makes any difficult situation a little less stressful. This lawyer’s office is top notch. If you want to ensure you get the best advice in the state reach out to Michelle Perkins law office, they are amazing.

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.

They know exactly what they are doing.

Each of the lawyers that I have worked with over the years have been really great. They are smart and know exactly what they are doing.

Client

Ethical and honest.

Ethical and honest. Thank you for all your help Owen’s and Perkins!

Adam

A Fantastic Law Firm

I have been a client of Owens and Perkins since 1996 (times flies). Each of the lawyers that I have worked with over the years have been really great. They are smart, they know exactly what they are doing and they don’t make mistakes. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with everyone at the firm, lawyers and staff alike, they are wonderful to work with and always treat me with respect. I highly, highly recommend Owens and Perkins to anyone looking for a fantastic law firm.

Client

I would recommend Max Hanson and Owens & Perkins to anyone

I retained Max Hanson and Owens & Perkins to represent me for a complex appellate case regarding spousal maintenance. Mr Hanson’s responses and briefs throughout my case were nothing short of brilliant, which ultimately led us to prevailing the appeal. Before any filings with the court, Mr Hanson took the time to explain them to me and give me the opportunity to ask questions or provide additional insight to a particular issue. The staff handled all of the filings and communications with the court and opposing counsel in a professional, timely manner. Having Mr Hanson and Owens & Perkins on my side took so much angst and stress out of an already tense situation. I would recommend Max Hanson and Owens & Perkins to anyone looking for top shelf representation in regards to a family law matter.

Gene Ames

Michelle Perkins created a trust and took the time to explain everything and its implications.

Michelle Perkins was a breath of fresh air to work with. My husband and I used Ms. Perkins for estate planning. She created a trust and took the time to explain everything and its implications. I had an abundance of questions and she took the time to answer each and every one of them. Never condescending and never impatient. It was important to her that we understood what we were creating. If she was not such a great lawyer she would make a great teacher. If you choose Ms. Perkins as your lawyer, you will not be disappointed.

Janet

I have already recommended Max to a dear friend and would do so again.

Seems strange to say “loved it” as it relates to a divorce attorney, but I’d redefine it as feeling as though I had a strong advocate in my corner through one of the most difficult times in my life. That to me was priceless. Max Hanson and his team were thorough, provided me with a clear understanding of all of my options (not just ones that made them more money), and guided me through each step of the process. And I will forever be grateful for how Ms. Perkins even took a personal interest in my situation when things got interesting. I have already recommended Max to a dear friend and would do so again.

Maureen Williams

Michael did an awesome job.

Michael Clonts did an awesome job representing me in my divorce. He is very knowledgeable in his field and took the time to explain things to me when necessary. He also responded to my emails/phone calls in a timely manner.

Maria

I wish to thank this firm for their care, time and consideration and recommend their services to all who need and seek same.

My mother and I have been utilizing the services of Owens & Perkins for more than several years, first with C.D. Owens and most recently with Ms. Michelle Perkins. My mother had the firm draw up her will/estate planning in such a way when it came time to exercise same I found myself completely free of encumbrances and was allowed to continue with the grieving process, at a time when my family needed the aforementioned period for reflection and not worry about such legalities that are always associated with a matters such as these. Ms. Perkins reviewed the documentation with me in such a way that even I, with limited exposure to such matters, found it straightforward and found my mother’s wishes were covered exactly as she would have wanted them. I wish to thank this firm for their exacting care, time and consideration and whole heartily recommend their services to all who need and seek same.

Patrick M.

Michael Clonts is an exceptional Family Law Attorney.

I’d be surprised if this wasn’t already a well known fact, but Michael Clonts is an exceptional Family Law Attorney. If you’re looking for personalized representation that is top of the line from start to finish, look no further than Mr Clonts and Owens and Perkins.

Tyler

I would definitely recommend Michael as a family law attorney to anyone that I know.

Michael was very knowledgeable of the laws, and he did everything that he could for me on my case. He was informative and guided me through the whole process. I’m sure that I’ll retain him again in the future. He was generally concerned about me and my well being. I would definitely recommend Michael as a family law attorney to anyone that I know.

Gregory

He was knowledgeable, answered all of my questions, and dove right in

Michael came in during the last stretch of my family court case. He was knowledgeable, answered all of my questions, and dove right in getting up to date with the ins and outs of the case that had been going on for a year and a half. I wish I would have found him at the beginning of the case as I feel it wouldn’t have taken so long to get to the conclusion. Thank you Michael and your team for all that you did!

Lacey

Knowledgeable, helpful, and experienced.

It has been a unique experience to have such a well rounded law firm to call on for all of Life’s speedbumps and disappointments. The attorneys at Owens and Perkins have always been very knowledgeable, helpful and experienced. Great pleasure to work with!

Janet

I can’t thank her enough!

Michelle handled an extremely difficult situation for me with efficiency and the utmost professionalism. I can’t thank her enough!

Troy

Not your typical divorce laywer

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Michelle and her company as the best divorce lawyer. She could very easily have tripled her wages by allowing myself and my ex to continue down a path of litigation; but she did the right thing for us both and I will forever be grateful to her. She is honest, reliable, caring and not your typical divorce lawyer. I wouldn’t hesitate to endorse her

Gemma

Best Family Attorney – Great Service

Michael and team exceeded my expectations with my family child support case. He has great attention to detail based on your specific situation. He was a pleasure to work with and very knowledgeable on the potential outcomes of any case. Michael was able to take the pressure and stress off of me throughout the process. You can definitely rely on Michael to help guide through the process. Overall, I am very pleased with Michael and the services that he provided. Highly recommended.

Michael

Awe-inspiring Support and Expertise!

Just wanted to say that Michael was extremely knowledgeable, straight to the point “no non sense” approach to my case. I’m not saying this because I WON my dispute on a restraining order against a CLOWN, but I’m saying this because he had his ducks in a row and took care of business. I was extremely hurt in this awkward situation I was confronted with and Michael was very receptive and caring about listening! In fact, before my trail he volunteered to deliver a “caring – painful message” on my behalf to the other party in a very respectful manner. After all was over, a week later, Michael followed up with me to see if I needed anything and to answer any concerns I may have had. I want to say I truly recommend this individual for any representations one may need. Stellar Performance in all aspects of his position!

Tom

I would hire Michael again

Michael handled my case of Child Support Modification, he was knowledgeable and had my back. He looked out for my best interests and communicated to me the whole time what was going on. Even when the court misplaced my case, he was able to follow up and expedite the proceedings.

Bobby

Couldn’t be happier!

Michael was my attorney for my Divorce. He was professional and easy to get in touch with. I felt that he listened to my needs and was empathetic during this difficult time. I could not have been happier in my decision to have him represent me. From start to finish, he was very efficient.

Nancy

So glad I had Michael Clonts as my lawyer.

I had Michael as my lawyer for custody and child support. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and understanding of how I was feeling through this whole thing. He always replayed to call and/or emails in a fashionable time. He was there with me every step of the way and always answered and questions/concerns that I had. I would defiantly hire him again.
