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

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

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

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

I hired a contractor who turned my life upside down. He stole from me and did lousy work. He was eventually convicted of numerous felonies but the court restitution was a joke. The court allowed him to pay me just $9.00 a month. At that rate it would have been twenty years for full settlement, I would be nearly 85 years old. I filed a petition with the court claiming the settlement violated my victim rights under the Oregon Constitution. I was going to represent myself, mistake! I filed for a continuance when the first hearing date arrived. I knew then, I would need legal assistance. I contacted Adam Brittle, when I found out he represents victims of crime. In less then an hour in the court room Adam was able to get me a fair settlement. I will now be paid back in two years and finally have the justice I was seeking.–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

Above and Beyond I recently went through a difficult divorce with a man who was almost impossible to deal with. A lawyer that I met recommended Adam and Jill and I am SO glad that she did. They were the most honest, caring, intelligent, and diligent individuals I have ever met. They are completely opposite of what I think a divorce lawyer would be like. They kept my mind at ease by doing such an amazing job. They were extremely responsive, determined, and developed a thorough plan of action. They handled a much older and very aggressive lawyer that my ex hired easily. I would like to thank them for their hard work and would recommend them without a doubt to anyone I know who needs representation.–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

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
