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 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
  • 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

  • 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

  • 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 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

  • 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

  • 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 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

  • I hired a contractor who turned my life upside down. He stole from me and did lousy work. He was eventually convicted of numerous felonies but the court restitution was a joke. The court allowed him to pay me just .00 a month. At that rate it would have been twenty years for full settlement, I would be nearly 85 years old. I filed a petition with the court claiming the settlement violated my victim rights under the Oregon Constitution. I was going to represent myself, mistake! I filed for a continuance when the first hearing date arrived. I knew then, I would need legal assistance. I contacted Adam Brittle, when I found out he represents victims of crime. In less then an hour in the court room Adam was able to get me a fair settlement. I will now be paid back in two years and finally have the justice I was seeking.–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 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
