Professional Profile

Tony Menting was born into the role of problem-solver. It would have been nearly impossible for him to survive five older sisters and a younger brother without learning to implement creative solutions to conflict. His problem-solving skills matured with him through childhood and college, where he graduated with honors, earning a bachelors degree in mathematics. His ability to analyze complex situations was refined with further study at Marquette Law School.

For Tony, the practice of family law has been the perfect opportunity to use the skills he has nurtured throughout his life.

Divorce cases are complex. The issues range from creating a placement schedule to permit your children to thrive, to assessing the values of businesses or pensions. Tony’s mathematical and analytical background, along with over fifteen years of experience, allow him to fully and effectively counsel our divorce clients about family and financial issues in an effort to obtain a resolution that is fair and well-reasoned.

Tony believes that children’s needs and interests are paramount. He has three young children and understands the importance of maintaining stability in the midst of change. Since parents put their children’s needs before their own during marriage, Tony encourages clients to keep their children’s needs and interests at the forefront as a part of the divorce process as well. Since the parents are divorcing and not the children, he urges clients to isolate the children from the conflict to the greatest extent possible.

Tony’s dedication to law extends beyond his practice. He has presented seminars to fellow lawyers and judges, written proposed legislation, and testified before legislative committees on family law matters. He also offers mediation services.

Tony is admitted to practice in Wisconsin. Anthony was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© 2015 in the field of Family Law.
