Support Staff

The staff at Jill Brittle Family Law Group are essential members of our team. They provide logistical support to the attorneys and also act as the front line for answering questions from new and potential clients. We utilize their skills to keep client costs lower and to facilitate efficient responses to clients.

Gwen Montgomery – Operations Manager

Gwen grew up in Southern Oregon and came to Portland for school. She graduated from PSU and went on to work in Education, Property Management and Human Resources. She loves working with people, creative problem solving and team building. In our office she collaborates with the team to give clients the best possible experience with Jill Brittle Family Law. When not working, Gwen loves to travel far and wide, hike at the Oregon Coast with her two puppies and is still searching for the perfect charcuterie board.

Allyssa Ottis – Paralegal / Office Manager

Allyssa comes to Jill Brittle Family Law Group with a strong legal background. A lawyer herself, licensed in Illinois, she returned to Oregon (where she grew up) with the goal of working in a firm that focuses on conflict resolution.

With a post-JD certificate in alternative dispute resolution and a certification as a mediator from the Center for Conflict Resolution, Allyssa brings her strong background of collaboration to the firm. She has also worked as a Case Manager for the Oregon Department of Justice in the Child Support Division, which gives her important insight into our client’s child support needs.

Allyssa works with the attorneys in the firm to support client needs and helps the whole office run smoothly.
