The Philosophy of Our Family Law, DUII Defense, and Divorce Lawyers

We are a Portland, Oregon based law firm practicing in the areas of family law, DUII defense, 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 attorneys and DUII 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 lawyers 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. Clients often begin researching attorneys by using generic terms like “best Portland divorce attorney,” “best DUII attorneys in Oregon” or “best Oregon attorneys.” 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

  • 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

  • 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 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • I had the pleasure of working with Jill Brittle on making some much-needed changes to a parenting plan. During the years leading up to this relationship, I had worked with several other attorneys. All had something to offer me, but I knew none was up to the task at hand. Jill by and far stands out as being the most diligent, the most thorough, the most professional yet also the most personable. The court staff love her because she is prepared, prompt,detail-oriented, responsive, courteous and personable; unfortunately these are rarities in this field. I continue to be grateful for her foresight, which frankly is beyond her years...–Client Review from Google
