Two years ago I got into some extremely stupid legal trouble in college that required retaining a lawyer. I never expected I would ever need one, I just picked Adam Brittle based on the location. Best decision I ever made. He did not over-promise that I would walk away clean, but he did everything in his power to get my conviction to the lowest possible, which will be expungeable in a year. More recently, I applied to live in a new apartment which required a background screening. I called Adam to ask if he would be willing to write a quick email explaining what had happened in my case. Not being under any attorney/client obligation (no payment either) Adam wrote a genuine, professional explanation to the apt management that was above anything that I expected. Knowing how busy attorneys are and that time is money, I honestly would not have expected someone to take the time to do something like that...but Adam did, and I am very grateful.–Client Review from Google

My husband was involved in a legal battle for custody of his 5 year old son for almost 1 year.... My husband and I, as well as our witnesses, were so prepared when the day of the hearing arrived. Jill was organized, articulate, and efficient. She seemed right at home in the courtroom, where her prevailing demeanor is calm and confident, but she knows how to handle things when it is time to get aggressive. ... If we ever need an attorney again, Brittle & Brittle will be the first place we look. From the bottom of our hearts... thank you.–Client Review from Google

From day one I had never second guessed my decision to hire them. Through their representation and guidance I was able to manage the best of a bad situation and could not have been more content with the results. I have attorneys for life and would highly recommend their counsel to anyone I know.–Client Review from Google

If you have ever gone through a divorce it is awful. When I was handed papers by my ex, I did not know the first thing about the legal process. As difficult as the process was emotionally, the team at Brittle & Brittle handled the legal aspect of my case without a hitch. They kept me informed of my options, argued passionately on my behalf when necessary, and kept the legal bills reasonable. Instead of inflaming the situation and hurting my family further, they worked out a settlement that everybody is satisfied with. The best part is, I can still work with my ex to raise my children.–Client Review from Google

Christopher J. Bergstrom served as my counsel through an extremely trying divorce sparked by domestic violence perpetrated against me by my ex-husband in early 2011. Mr. Bergstrom met each challenge with grace, compassion, professionalism, and wisdom. Mr. Bergstrom never failed to be extremely well researched and prepared for all court appearances, filings, and unexpected changes. Christopher always welcomed collaboration and client involvement in "next steps", taking care to explain legalese and often times foreseeing the possibility of difficult scenarios, allowing us to be well prepared. I appreciated Mr. Bergstrom’s honesty and straight forward communication style, which was consistently tempered with his sincere empathy for hurting individuals and families in crisis. Mr. Bergstrom builds relationships in his practice of family law and I never felt as if I were simply another case number or billing invoice. Christopher J. Bergstrom sought justice for me and I found hope in the future knowing that this gentleman was in my corner. I would recommend Mr. Bergstrom to anyone.–Client Review from Google

They are professional, brilliant, proactive, consistent, and compassionate. They are genuine people who are very good at what they do. My divorce and custody issues were navigated as smoothly as possible with their expertise. I was reassured throughout the process with their prompt attention, honest answers, and care... Their fees are affordable, and they are worth every penny and then some.–Client Review from Google

I had a very long and complicated Divorce lasting over 3 years. During the last year a situation out of my control required me to switch Attorneys. Jill Brittle was recommended to me by two people and after my first meeting with her I felt very confident that she could take over with very little delays, which in fact was the case! I strongly recommend this firm...–Client Review from Google

I have personally observed Ms. Morris' strong work ethic and unwavering advocacy on behalf of his clients. Ms. Morris' background provides her with the experience and skills necessary to address her clients' needs. A strong indicator of an attorney's ability is whether her professional colleagues would entrust their personal affairs in the attorney's hands. Not every attorney is capable of earning such respect and trust. I would trust Ms. Morris to handle my case, and that is why I eagerly endorse this attorney.–Client Review from Google

I had never needed a lawyer before, but when I ended up in the wrong place in the wrong time, I ended up needing a criminal defense attorney. Adam spent the time to fully listen to me and investigate my side of the story. He was great about returning my calls and explaining in plain language what was happening and what my options were. Even if I was worried about the situation, he made me feel like he was truly on my side and informed. Ultimately, he helped me with a resolution that left me and my record unscathed. Thank you!–Client Review from Google

Jill and Adam Brittle are the ONLY attorneys you should call for assistance with child custody/modification issues. During the past 5 years I've hired a few different attorneys to assist me with complicated child custody issues which all resulted in my losing custody during very long, expensive, and emotional ordeals. As a result, I did a lot of research before deciding to hire Jill Brittle to represent me in a modification (attempt to regain custody). From the start, both Jill and Adam attentively listened and took interest in my cause. They were very clear about the process, legal options, and best strategy to proceed. All communication with them was timely and professional. Both are extremely knowledgable about the laws and were very effective during attorney-attorney communication and the deposition proceedings. In fact, they were so good that we settled prior to the hearing on a child custody dispute spanning over 5 years! Amazing! Jill and Adam have literally changed my life and that of my children and I would give them the highest possible recommendation to represent anyone in family matters.–Client Review from Google
