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

Michelle Perkins has represented me and several family members in numerous complex divorce, trust and estate matters over the last decade. Our matters required an intimate understanding of an ever-changing financial landscape that impacted many entities, and several family members. Michelle and the attorneys at Owens & Perkins counseled us with the utmost professionalism - negotiating with skill, and providing opposing counsel with the knowledge that Michelle and her team were never afraid to take our case to trial. Their expertise and guidance was invaluable. I highly recommend Michelle Perkins and the firm of Owens & Perkins.

Michelle Perkins rocks!! I have had the pleasure (and it unusual to say dealing wtih lawyers is a pleasure) of using Michelle Perkins and Owens & Perkins as our lawyers for the past 15 plus years. I have used Michelle for wills and trusts, probate, real estate matters, powers of attorney and other miscellaneous matters and have never been disappointed. She is always clear on the best approach and gives you the best and worst case scenarios on each matter so that you can make informed decisions. I know that she will always do her best when representing me and has been reassuring during times of stress. Her knowledge and ability to clearly and concisely explain the law and its process allows me to better comprehend each situation. She is a great advocate and a wonderful lawyer. I have never been disappointed in an outcome and admire her integrity.

On a scale from 1 to 10, Michelle Perkins is an 11. She has been my attorney since 2005 and has handled several types of legal matters for me. From Legal Seperation, Divorce, family trust, to a very complicated law suit, Michelle has handled it all and the outcome was always favorable. Her knowledge and level of professionalism is outstanding. But what impressed me the most is that she REALLY CARES, she is a good listener, detail oriented, has and amazing legal team, and so she gives her all. I always felt that I was in good hands with Michelle Perkins. All of my legal issues were challenging, and very complicated but Michelle Perkins was there for me every step, she did her absolute best, and the results were always in my favor. She is in my opinion the absolute best attorney in phoenix. You will not be disappointed using her or anyone that works for her.

Living on the East coast and unfamiliar with Arizona law we needed to speak with an attorney regarding a family member residing in Arizona who is going through divorce proceedings. Michelle Perkins closely listened to the details and our concerns in this matter and was extremely helpful in providing us with legal guidance and procedural direction. Even though she is not in close proximity to our relative she was none-the-less giving of her time and attention. Our most sincere thanks to Michelle for her time and sharing her insight, expertise and providing us with direction in this very difficult time. She is an excellent choice!

Not only did Michelle represent me during a rather contentious divorce, she developed my Estate planning/will. Michelle was recommended to me by a friend and I have since recommended her to friends and family members, who have also been represented by Michelle.
Michelle is very compassionate, professional and aggressive attorney.

I just wanted to thank you again for your help in the mediation. This has been a very stressful situation for us over the past year, but the conclusion of the claim and your handling of the mediation really put things at ease for us, and will finally allow our friend's passing to be peaceful. I wish there was more that I could do to express my gratitude for the service that you provided, and I truly hope that you know that how much your generosity in your Pro tem work does for the community.

Michelle is bright, knowledgable and passionate. She has represented me in various capacities for 15 years and have felt confident that she, and her firm, know what to do and how to do it. She explains what is usually a very complicated law system into laymen terms that is easy to understand. And she wins when they are hired to represent you.

After 17 years of marriage, we had accumulated assets and had ownership in a successful small business and numerous other mutual holdings and interests. While our children are adults, our agreement did involve spousal maintenance. The point being, it was complicated and there was plenty to ‘fight over’. But we were not “at war”! And if you are reading this in the early stages of a divorce, I implore you, go to a paintball course, but don’t use a divorce proceeding as a means to inflict pain for the hurt you feel! The ricochet will hurt you too!!!
What impressed me first with Michelle was rather than jumping-in and saying “here’s how it is”, she took the time to understand me, my tone, and my objectives. She ensured the issues were clearly understood and made sure the agreement was fair. She also recognizes that an amicable solution requires negotiation and give-and-take, by both parties. In many ways, I found Michelle to be a facilitator. She has many years of experience and has seen structures and agreements that work, and those that don’t, and was able to provide suggestions throughout the process for me to consider.
Perhaps our biggest challenge was not reaching agreement, but the Agreement itself. It was complicated legal document. Michelle took our agreement in principle and crafted a sound legal document that can be clearly interpreted and enforced. A poorly written agreement is detrimental to both parties! Michelle enlisted independent support from other attorneys in her office who were unfamiliar with our case to ensure the Agreement was unambiguous without further explanation. And despite multiple iterations Michelle never demonstrated frustration or irritation.
Lastly, I found Michelle to be personable, yet direct. She communicates clearly and effectively, and always maintained the highest standard of professionalism. Thanks to Michelle, we did not destroy ourselves or each other, and we remain great friends!
With heartfelt gratitude for helping me through a very difficult process, I highly recommend Michelle Perkins.
