More Than Just Portland, Oregon Divorce Lawyers

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 attorneys by using generic terms like “best Portland divorce attorney,” “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 attorney, 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
  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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 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

  • 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

  • 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
