Anonymous Client

The staff is professional and friendly. My attorney, Michael Clancy, achieved a lot on my behalf for my divorce case. He is polite, professional but aggressive enough to get the results I was after that two previous attorneys could not. I will recommend Arizona Estate Planning Attorneys to anyone seeking a family law attorney or advice.

Anonymous Client

Smart, professional, and easy to work with. Selecting Mr. Clancy to represent me in family court was one of the best decisions I have made. After our initial meeting, I was confident that he would study the case history and fight for my children and me.

He didn’t over promise and sell me dreams that were unrealistic, and he told me the truth ranging from best to worst case scenarios and that is when I knew I could trust him. I immediately felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders and I was able to relax and go back to living my life knowing he was doing his job.

I had, and still have, so much faith in his ability that I chose to remain out of the room during negotiations with my ex and in the end I didn’t stress out, I didn’t get angry, or upset and he (my ex) didn’t get the satisfaction of seeing me that way. The end result was more than positive, far closer to best case than worst case, and if I ever need to go back to court I will use him again.
