More Than Just Portland, Oregon Divorce Attorneys

We explain the law to our clients
Family law is an expansive area of law which includes Oregon child custody issues, alimony (spousal support), child support, asset division, collaborative divorces, domestic partnership, child relocation, paternity, and child or spousal support modifications. Your case likely involves a number of these issues and you need a lawyer who can advise you on all aspects, from the valuation of a business to the nuances of a developmentally-appropriate parenting plan.

Our clients are more comfortable with the legal process because they are educated about what to expect throughout the case, rather than being kept in the dark. Clients often begin researching lawyers by using generic terms like “best Portland divorce lawyer,” “best child custody lawyers in Oregon” or “best Oregon attorney.” The truth is, the best divorce attorney for your circumstance is the one who accomplishes 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 Oregon family law attorneys are well-equipped to guide you through the legalities specific to your situation, and are far more than just divorce attorneys. If you need more than just an Oregon divorce lawyer, call us to discuss your particular issue. Of course, if you need a divorce in Oregon, we can help with that too.

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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
