Our Clients Say It Best
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
Jill and Adam Brittle are the ONLY attorneys you should call for assistance with child custody/modification issues. During the past 5 years I’ve hired a few different attorneys to assist me with complicated child custody issues which all resulted in my losing custody during very long, expensive, and emotional ordeals. As a result, I did a lot of research before deciding to hire Jill Brittle to represent me in a modification (attempt to regain custody). From the start, both Jill and Adam attentively listened and took interest in my cause. They were very clear about the process, legal options, and best strategy to proceed. All communication with them was timely and professional. Both are extremely knowledgeable about the laws and were very effective during attorney-attorney communication and the deposition proceedings. In fact, they were so good that we settled prior to the hearing on a child custody dispute spanning over 5 years! Amazing! Jill and Adam have literally changed my life and that of my children and I would give them the highest possible recommendation to represent anyone in family matters.–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 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 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
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 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
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
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
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
