Comment: Nancy Ballast is the Best Family Attorney! Living on the East side of Michigan Nancy helped my wife and I navigate the legal system in Allegan County regarding a child custody case with my teenage sons.Nancy and her team asked all the right questions. They took our thoughts, relayed them to the court and we prevailed. My sons are both thriving and have a great future due to Nancy and her team at Arnson VanTol Law, PLC.I can’t say enough positive things about Nancy. She was responsive, super knowledgeable and easy to talk to. As a father, Nancy made this entire process flow & she and her team understood how to accomplish our goals.My experience before Nancy was that fathers cannot win in a court system designed to put men at a disadvantage. That is not the case, she proved it. We prevailed at every step of the process.I highly recommend Arnson VanTol Law, PLC! Dads shouldn’t hesitate to call.

Comment: I cant say enough good things about ARnson VanTol Law and in particular Jeff Arnson. The office was professional, prompt and always friendly. Mr Arnson gave me his direct line, and most importantly really took the time to understand our situation. Mr. Arnson also came though in the courtroom where, frankly we ran laps around the opposing counsel.The greatest compliment I can about Mr. Arnson is that he helped me get my son back and that is truly priceless.

Comment: I used Samantha VanTol as my attorney. Her and her team (Beth and Abbey included) did a phenomenal job helping me through my divorce! They were all rock-stars in this entire process. Samantha is a fierce attorney and she will fight for everything you need. She is extremely professional, wise, and knowledgeable. This firm is 100% worth the cost and I could not rave about them more!! If you want to have a successful divorce and come out a winner, use this office-you wont regret it!

Comment: Jeff is an amazing lawyer. He was always focused on the best interest of my kid. His vast understanding of the judges and legal system is a huge benefit. Let him be the lawyer and let him have client control. I cant stress enough that he knows what he is doing. Divorce is horrible and emotional but Jeff helped me stay calm and keep my eye on the end goal. Easy to talk to, will explain legal terms, and quick on his feet in court. I worked with him for nearly 5 years. Great lawyer. This man helped keep my family whole.

Comment: Absolutely over the moon with the services I was given. The outcome of my situation turned out more favorably than I could have ever hoped for, at a lower price than I could have imagined. Samantha was very straight forward, had no problem explaining everything to me in detail, and very kindly answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. Worth every penny.

Comment: Alissa Oetman represented me in my recent divorce. Our first consultation she spent over an hour telling me what to expect and asking me what I wanted out of this divorce. She kept me well informed throughout the hole process and was always looking out for my best interest. I came out of this divorce a lot better than I anticipated and am very thankful for all the hard work Alissa did for me. Would highly recommend her to anyone going through a divorce!

Comment: You have to ask for Nancy she by far is the best lawyer I have ever worked with. She made it seamless and painless. Nancy walked me through my divorce from start to finish Great Law firm to work with! Anytime i had a question or a concern She was very quick to get me the answer, if for some reason she was out of the office or on a call her counter part Beth would jump in and assist me, Honestly they went above and beyond for me. Nothing better then having Nancy in your corner and fighting for everything you want... She is not afraid to jump in the ring lace up and put on them Brass knucks and get you want you deserve.Thank you Shaw Law Group and Thank you Nancy!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED A++++++

Comment: Worth every penny....Ivan met with me initially and so wisely handed me off to a real pitbull. I was scared, as Ivan had made me feel confident he could help me. But, Samantha was absolutely amazing...super responsive, professional and a mind like a steel trap. She knew my life and story almost better than I did. She made me feel like my case was her only case, and helped guide me through the most difficult year of my life. Samantha made sure the wishes of my kids were protected to remain primarily in my care. Samantha is a real rockstar...theres nobody Id rather have in my corner...cant say enough.

Comment: Prior to my experience with ADAM, I had a number of attorneys tell me they could not help. Nancy Ballast took my case and fought hard for me. At times, there were moments when things didnt go my way and she expressed as much disappointment as I did. She showed she really cared about getting me a beneficial conclusion and, in the end, she delivered!

Comment: I had not had any experience with the legal system before my divorce. Samantha VanTol helped me through every step, and helped keep me strong and focused when I was ready to give up. She treated me like a person, not just a client. And in the end her knowledge and toughness gained me a favorable outcome. Thank you Samantha, for your help during this very heart-wrenching situation.

Comment: My experience, although nothing I would wish on anyone, was nothing short of exceptional! Samantha stood up for me, treated me with respect, was very responsive to my questions and concerns, was on top of everything, and I felt she had to help the other side with what they were doing as if they didnt understand what they could do and couldnt do (or try to get away with). I would (and will) recommend Samantha to anyone who might have to go through the unfortunate situation that sometimes has to be dealt with. Samantha is the best. Thank you Sam!

Comment: Jeffrey Arnson was an incredible advocate for my rights as a father. He was tremendously knowledgeable and caring of my individual situation. When I became overly emotional during the divorce, Jeff was there to talk me through the issues, and help me focus on what was most important, the kids. He fought hard for me, and I have no doubts that he approaches all his cases with the same level of care and concern as he did for me.

Comment: I have now used ADAM for two different occasions one was my divorce that went very smoothly and the other for a custody case due to a poor life choice of the other party. Both times everyone that I came across that works at this law firm was VERY professional and courteous to myself and my family as well. My attorney for both occasions was Samantha VanTol and I have absolutely zero complaints from dealing with her she is very professional and puts legal terms into terms that your average american can understand. If I have any other family law issues I certainly know who my first call will be too. Thank You ADAM for everything you have done for me and my family!!

Comment: ADAM - Shaw Law Group exceeded my expectations.My case required both skill and compassion. I, as a father, refused to accept unfair parenting rights often granted through the court systems. Ive heard the horror stories of men suffering from poor legal representation and I was not about to become one of them. My child was worth the fight and I needed the best to ensure a fair and equal agreement.Samantha listened to what I wanted and worked around my requirements. She was assertive and actively requested to prepare all documents herself. I liked this because I knew that everything written was always in my better interest. Instead of being on the defensive, we were on the offensive which forced counter offers that were always in my favor.We didnt win everything but the end result was more than I originally asked for. I highly recommend ADAM - Shaw Law Group for any divorce litigation.

Comment: I worked with Keith Koonmen for several consultative sessions. I found him to be professional and very knowledgeable in the area. However, I would expect that of any lawyer. The difference here is that Keith also gave his insight into what different avenues I could use to get the agreements I was after. He gave his opinions based on his experience, was very personable about it, and offered a level of comfort that I really needed. We talked through what could be brought up, how it could be brought up, and what the likely interpretation would be. That was invaluable to me. Unless one has been through divorce proceedings before, it is a daunting experience. My experience using Keith made the whole thing as painless as I expect it could have possibly been.
