The Philosophy of Our Family Law and Divorce Lawyers

We are a Portland, Oregon based law firm practicing in the areas of family law, estate planning, litigation, divorce, adoption, and child custody issues. Our attorneys are committed to providing guidance to our clients in what is often a complex maze of the legal world.

Our Portland, Oregon divorce lawyers adhere to a philosophy of problem-solving first. Some attorneys want to be known as aggressive and contentious litigators. While we certainly litigate passionately when appropriate, our goal is to first use legal expertise to facilitate faster solutions. Our attorneys enjoy the one-on-one interaction with people and the ability to effectuate a positive difference in peoples’ lives. It is our philosophy that every client deserves quality and experienced representation.

We explain the law to our clients

We believe that an informed client is more comfortable with the legal process. We seek to educate our clients about what to expect, rather than keeping them in the dark about what to expect in their case. People often begin researching attorneys by using generic terms like “best Portland divorce lawyer” or “best Oregon lawyer.” The truth is, the best lawyer for your circumstance is the one who accomplishes your goals, communicates with you, and provides solid legal advice along the way. We believe that it is important to build a trusting relationship between client and attorney so that we can best serve your needs.

Our Clients Say It Best


The best Portland, Oregon divorce lawyers receive five star reviews
  • 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

  • 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

  • When my boyfriend and I were being sued by his mother for third party visitation, we were scared and confused about our rights as parents. Adam Brittle brought to our attention our constitutional rights along with the laws. He guided us every step of the way...This firm knows what they are doing and they care. I am so grateful for this them!–Client Review from Google

  • I am extremely pleased with the way that I have been treated by Brittle and Brittle. They have provided friendly and very effective service. I will recommend my friends and family members to them should they have the need for a top-notch legal team...–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

  • 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

  • Adam & Jill are very professional and personal at the same time which is a hard find when looking for legal counsel. 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...–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 knowledgeable 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

  • 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

  • I showed up at Brittle & Brittle scared and unsure of my goals. On a recommendation from a lawyer friend, I first met with Jill, and then Adam arrived after he returned from court. These two work together perfectly! Jill answered every question I could throw at her at my first meeting. Adam arrived later and introduced himself and made me feel like I was in control of the circumstance... Brittle & Brittle showed the judge that not only do I have worth, but that my family deserves to be assisted in our transition to a new life after my divorce. Thank you so much you guys!–Client Review from Google
