History and Practice
C.D. Owens, the Senior Partner of Owens and Perkins P.C. was sworn in to
the State Bar of Oklahoma in 1949 and began his legal career in 1950 for
the Sinclair Oil Company. By 1959, C.D. had accepted a management position
with Sinclair in their New York offices. After eight years of management
in New York City, C.D. packed up his family and moved to Scottsdale, Arizona.
In 1967 Michelle Perkins, the Managing Partner for Owens and Perkins, was
celebrating her First birthday on the exact day C.D. was sworn in to practice
as a licensed Attorney in Arizona.
In 1994, Michelle received her Juris Doctorate and began her legal career
as a solo practitioner. Two years later, she joined C.D. to form Owens

developed close professional relationships with the local business community.
As the community began to know C.D. and his character, determination and
sheer tenacity, they began entrusting him with their personal and family
matters as well. Since that time, those clients have had children, who
have had children, and they all seek legal guidance and advice from Owens
and Perkins. Generations representing generations!

of our dedication to and compassion for our clients, their families and
businesses, and the community in which we live. The greater results of
