By: Michelle J. Perkins, Esq.
I am not sure where the time goes, but it goes very quickly. I have now
been the Managing Partner of Owens & Perkins for almost 20 years.
As that milestone approaches, I decided to look back over the years and
reflect on our accomplishments. I am very proud of our legal team, the
excellence they demand from themselves and the professional recognition
we receive as a result.
I think the biggest difference between our firm and many others is that
we actually care about our clients and we care about the outcome of the
case. One of the attorneys in our office was actually chastised this week
by an opposing attorney, who said the O&P lawyer “cared too
much”. How ridiculous is that? It’s a sad state of affairs
when a lawyer is questioned by opposing counsel as to why she cares about
her client, the work she is doing and obtaining a fair result. I wish
more lawyers cared. It would certainly make the system work a lot better.
We have been rewarded immensely by recognitions and awards that directly
reflect on the pride we take in our work and the care, concern and compassion
we have for our clients. To name a few, we are an AV rated firm, which
means we have been awarded the highest possible rating in both legal ability
and ethical standards. We have been named as Arizona’s Top Lawyers
for consecutive years and we have received Awards of Excellence for our
customer service, strong code of business ethics and outstanding service
to the legal community.
While we are proud of our accomplishments and recognitions in the professional
realm, we are most proud of the recognitions and awards we receive as
a result of client initiatives. We have received the Avvo Clients’
Choice award, Martindale-Hubbell Client Distinction Award and 10 Best
As we move into the holiday season, I wanted to take this opportunity to
say thank you to all of our clients for entrusting us with your legal
matters and for giving us the opportunity to show each of you that we
do actually care and that this does make a huge difference in the legal
representation we provide. We are honored to serve each of you.
