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.

Thank you for getting my life back!

Life should never be taken for granted. At a very stressful time in mine Owens & Perkins helped me remain on my feet. Their legal advice and positive attitude were un-compromised when challenged. Having Owens & Perkins as my counsel made me believe something positive would come out of my terrible situation. Thank you Owens & Perkins for having my back!

Client

Great Law Firm with a Great Billing Department!

I went with my son to Owens & Perkins to help him with the decisions that he needed to make during his litigation. Michelle Perkins was so helpful and everything was very timely. It was very helpful that everything Owens & Perkins did was clearly explained with time tables that actually worked. I was informed of all major decisions and payment was always explained ahead of time. I never felt rushed and everything was very clear. Even the billing department was great!

Client

Owens and Perkins Law Firm is my go to Law Office

Owens and Perkins Law Firm is my go to Law Office. I went thru a difficult divorce and found them to be extremely knowledgeable and professional. They handled my case very well, looked out for my best interest when difficult decisions had to be made and we were able to settle sooner than I thought. I have known them for over 16 years and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Professional, Understanding and Responsive

My wife and I are most thankful for the high levels for professionalism, understanding and responsive attention given to our daughter’s divorce by Max Hanson and the entire Owens & Perkins team. The way Max handled a complex and often unresponsive adversary was remarkable. Somehow Max managed to keep proceedings on schedule and “in budget” with reasonable fees. Again, I thank Max for making a difficult situation easier than could be reasonably expected.

Client

Max is AMAZING

I want to express my gratitude to everyone at Owens & Perkins. While going through my emotional divorce, Max and the staff were so kind and caring and at the same time professional. You got my difficult divorce completed in a timely manner with results that I never thought was possible. Max you are amazing!! Thank you so much. I am now moving on with my life.

Client

Strong and Capable Litigator

The lawyers at Owens and Perkins are strong capable litigators. They resolve cases effectively and expeditiously, particularly in the area of family law. They understand the peculiarities of divorce and child custody matters, and they know how to navigate a courtroom. They are well-connected and what I would consider first-class legal talent. Their straightforward approach was comforting and their ability to devise creative strategies to complicated legal problems is to be rivaled. You won’t be disappointed with the quality of legal representation you receive when you retain Owens and Perkins.

Client

Painless Long Distance Legal Matter

We are more than happy with how Owens & Perkins handled all of the details of our long distance legal matter. Our family has a long-standing relationship with the firm and even though we now live out of state, Owens & Perkins is always the first place we call for help with any legal problem. As usual, your assistance made this very painless for us. Thanks for all your help over all of these years. You guys are the best.

Client

Keen Advisors

I want to thank Owens & Perkins for representing me in my DUI, and even more importantly for being a strong and positive influence on me in what has been one of the most critical times in my life. I will always consider you guys friends and keen advisors and if I can ever be of service to you in any way, all you will have to do is ask.

Client

An Exceptionally Talented Attorney with Integrity

After having worked with a firm that gave me false hopes about unreal expectations, and having done countless interviews with replacement attorneys, I found Michelle. Michelle is a straight shooter, she doesn’t waste your time (which translates into money), and she will do anything she needs to do to insure your piece of mind. I went through a very anxiety provoking divorce and custody battle, and she and her firm always made sure I was heard and not forgotten about. She is a reasonable, intelligent negotiator, and an indignant pit bull if she needs to be.

Client

Hard Working Law Firm

The attorneys at Owens & Perkins and the entire staff have been great throughout all of my endeavors. I really appreciate all the hard work you have all put into assisting me. I just wanted to thank you very much for all you do and although I hope I don’t need you in the future, it is a great relief to know whom to turn to in times of legal need.

Client

Max Hanson Understood My Case and Gave Me Realistic Expectations

I worked closely with Max and his very capable paralegal, Kim Campbell. Through all of the proceedings, Max continued to encourage me, was very realistic about the possible outcomes and I felt he always had my back. Max was also very respectful of my requests, even if he may not have agreed with them. Although it is not common to pursue Legal Separation, Max understood that there was not another option for me and supported me in that decision. His compilation of the mountain of paperwork I provided him, his level of understanding of this “unusual” case and his ability to present all of it in an easy to understand format were the icing on the cake. After 2 days in court, I finally got my separation. It came out just like Max told me it would.

Client

Well Established Firm That is There for Me

A few years ago, I found myself in a place I thought I would never be…divorcing from the person I had spent all of my adult life with. At first, it seemed that we would be able to be logical about things, essentially negotiate the divorce ourselves. So I hired a lawyer from another firm that advertised himself as a divorce attorney who I never even met face-to-face. I proceeded to draft the divorce agreement myself, and he simply read it over and said he would see if it would be accepted by the court. I was not given any specific advice about how the things I was agreeing to or surrendering was in my best interest or not. As could be expected, I was unsatisfied with the original negotiation and things got worse when I was about 6 months past the divorce finalization. That is when a trusted co-worker of mine urged me to talk to Michelle Perkins, who had represented her in her divorce and custody arrangements. She felt that Michelle would be able to give me a fresh perspective on my situation, and work as an advocate for me as I re-evaluated my options. Michelle did exactly that, she was empathetic and supportive to me, and helped me to feel validated in my concerns about my situation. Also, Michelle did not push me into spending more in legal fees; she didn’t take advantage of my situation with a high-pressure sales approach to re-fight everything. We just took a clear look at the real circumstances and she helped me move through the next challenges. On top of the divorce, and all the petty things that even the best of people can quarrel over, we were facing a major financial loss in the housing market crash. Michelle and her team were able to advise me on how to deal with a house going into foreclosure that I no longer lived in, but was financially tied to like a sinking rock. Now it has been 3 years since the divorce was finalized, and life for me has moved on. Michelle was able to help me once again because loose-ends still exist regarding the real estate; I cannot tell you how comforting it was to know I could get in contact with Michelle again after years and she would be right there to help me answer some legal questions so quickly. Because the firm is so well established, I didn’t have to go through hiring another attorney and paying even more fees just to have some follow up questions answered. My advice: go to Owens & Perkins FIRST when facing divorce or dealing with a real-estate problem. It saves a lot of time, money and worry in the long run. Thank you Owens & Perkins!!

Client

Immediately Felt at Ease

My sisters and I called CD Owens when we experienced some legal issues with our small family restaurant. Upset and confused, we immediately felt at ease when CD carefully explained our options to us. CD is a plain talking, no nonsense kind of guy who knows more about the law than most will ever know. He took time out of his busy day whenever we called and he genuinely cared about us and our situation. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who has a legal issue.

Client

Max Hanson Will Fight for You

I had filed for a Legal Separation and had felt that I could handle everything myself. That is, until some unreasonable requests started coming in from my husband. At that point, I knew I needed help. I had already spoken with two other attorneys, but it was very obvious that they were not in my corner and would not represent me fully. I went on line and Googled “Scottsdale Divorce Attorneys.” At the top of the page was “Owens & Perkins.” I went to the website, looked through it, and called. C.D. Owens was immediately available to talk to me. He answered all of my questions and then said “Get down here; you need to talk to me before you hire anyone.” I was in the office within 30 minutes and explained in detail to C.D., my situation. He then had me meet with another attorney on staff, Max Hanson. I immediately felt comfortable with Max. He was very knowledgeable and encouraging to me. At the end of our meeting, I had one final question. “Will you fight for me?” Without hesitation, Max looked me in the eyes and responded, “Yes.”

Client

Exceptional Law Firm

My experience with Owens & Perkins has been exceptional. They have helped me with several family law situations over the years. I consider them my personal attorneys who have earned my trust and respect for their professional expertise and exceptional service. I plan to work with them again on my estate planning and certainly recommend them to anyone who wants the best!

Client

New Hope for Humanity

To CD Owens: I send you my gratitude for your beautiful grace in helping me with this matter. Since I met you I found a new hope for humanity! Thank you kindly & may you be blessed a million times what you have blessed me with your kindness of your heart!!!!

Client

Aggressive Representation and Brilliant Strategy

Michelle Perkins was recommended to me in 2004 by my friend, a professional lawyer, for my divorce case. My friend said, “You will like her.” Well, I loved her! I always felt secure and confident during the case. Michelle was aggressive, sharp and at the same time very wise, she was always on top of every situation, I even should say ahead of the case; her strategy was brilliant. At the end I got more than I expected or hoped for. I will definitely recommend her to anyone, I just did, when I needed the best legal service for the most important thing in my life, I came to her because I trust her expertise and devotion to the case. I always wanted to call her not just Attorney at Law but a Goddess at Law. Thank you, Michelle, for helping clients like me, I know I can trust you with my life!

Client

I Refer Owens & Perkins to my Friends & Family

Owens & Perkins has provided me with professional services for many years. This last time while I was negotiating child support with my ex-husband. They were timely, accurate and fair. I will definitely use them again and I will continue to refer them to my friends and family.

Client

Great Experience

I had my estate planning done at Owens & Perkins. I would highly recommend them for anything legal because I had such a great experience. They were very knowledgeable, nice, pleasant people that put me at ease. That is so hard to find these days. Their entire team was really great.
