The Philosophy of Our Family Law, Child Custody, and Divorce Lawyers
We are a Portland, Oregon based law firm practicing in the areas of family law, custody modifications, Oregon 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 child custody attorneys 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 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 child custody attorneys in Oregon” or “best Oregon attorneys.” The truth is, the best attorney 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
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 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
We owe a debt of gratitude to Adam Brittle! Recently I faced a situation regarding property damage to a vehicle that looked like it might need litigation to resolve. Since I was unsure of whether this was the appropriate and/or wise course of action to take, I contacted Adam. He took the time to study the details of my situation, and then carefully advised me of the pros and cons of proceeding with litigation. What we really appreciated was that there was absolutely no pressure from Adam to retain his professional services; he simply provided us with the information we needed, talked us through the steps that would be required, and then left the decision to us. We decided to go ahead and pursue a legal resolution to the dispute, and we were so impressed with Adam and his handling of our case. In spite of his busy schedule, he moved forward with our case immediately.–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 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
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
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
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
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
