How we can guide you

As a family, many milestones must be navigated during the course of a lifetime. Some of these will require sound and thoughtful legal advice.

At Jill Brittle Family Law Group, we have dedicated ourselves and our practice to providing the best advice and advocacy for our clients who are navigating divorce or other family law issues. With our broad experience, we will help protect your rights, both as a partner and a parent.

Clients often begin researching lawyers by using generic terms like “best Portland divorce attorney,” “best child custody attorneys in Oregon” or “best Oregon attorney.” The truth is, the best attorney for your circumstance is the one who supports you to accomplish your goals, communicates with you, and provides solid legal advice along the way. It is important to build a trusting relationship between client and attorney so that your needs can be met, and your goals can be accomplished. Our approach is to provide individualized attention to each case. One size does not fit all, and our experience allows us to apply case law to the specifics of your case and to track trends within the tri-county area.

This makes us adept at the family law frameworks of mediation, negotiation, and litigation.
