About Anthony

Learn Anthony’s areas of practice.

The practice of family law has been the perfect opportunity to use the skills I have nurtured throughout my life.


Divorce cases are complex. The issues range from creating a placement schedule that permits your children to thrive, to assessing the values of businesses or pensions. My mathematical and analytical background, along with over 15 years of experience, allow me 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.


I believe children’s needs and interests are paramount.  I have three young children and understand the importance of maintaining stability in the midst of change.  Parents put their children’s needs before their own during marriage. I encourage 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, I urge clients to isolate the children from the conflict to the greatest extent possible.


My accomplishments have not gone unnoticed.  My peers have named me a “Wisconsin Super Lawyer” in the area of Family Law.  I have also been elected to the Board of Directors for the State Bar Family Law Section.  I am a fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, the preeminent organization of Family Law lawyers in the nation. My dedication to law extends beyond my practice.  I have presented seminars to fellow lawyers and judges, written proposed legislation, and testified before legislative committees on family law matters.  I also offer mediation services.

Divorce Case
I was referred to Tony because of jurisdictional complexities and the potential for high conflict in my divorce case. Tony’s skill and experience ensured quick resolution with an excellent financial outcome. I live in North Central Wisconsin and apart from one hearing, everything was handled remotely.

A Strong Proponent of a Clean Break
I found Attorney Anthony Menting to be knowledgeable about the laws and court cases relating to divorce and family law. He is very much an advocate for his client getting their fair share from the divorce. He is also a strong proponent of a clean break with no future fighting or squabbles. I have recommended him to others going through a difficult divorce.

Thank you!
Tony represented me in a highly contested divorce including complicated financial matters. I found him to be patient, thoughtful, strategic, and knowledgeable. As an attorney myself with knowledge of the law and process, this adds a dimension to the representation. Tony navigated this well. I am pleased with the results and refer clients to Tony whenever I can.

Represented my case superbly
I cannot recommend Anthony enough. He is definitely a knowledgeable take charge kind of person. Not only is he well versed in the current law and tactics but he also has common sense and makes solid suggestions. He is also excellent at numbers regarding accounting and tax maters. All this and dare I say friendly and quite conversant.
