Welcome To Arnson VanTol Law, PLC

Attorneys Focused on Defending the Rights of Men


When resolving family law disputes, gender shouldn't matter. Men and women should be treated fairly and equally. Unfortunately, in civil and criminal matters, particularly in cases involving divorce or custody, men often know the cards are stacked against them from the outset.

At the law firm of Arnson VanTol Law, PLC, of Kalamazoo, Michigan, our local lawyers work hard to protect the rights and interests of men. Our attorneys provide experienced legal advice, strong advocacy and aggressive court representation for men who are preparing for divorce or dealing with other family law or criminal allegations.


The American Divorce Association for Men (ADAM) in West Michigan, has highly qualified attorneys who advocate for men's rights in divorce, child custody and parenting time, paternity, support, property settlement, post judgment modifications, and other family law matters.

Men involved in family law disputes need strategic guidance and professional decision making through times that can be extremely stressful. The issues of husbands and fathers are part of an equation that demands recognition from the courts, as well as from other lawyers, wives, mothers, children, and all who are affected by family law issues.
