About Adam J. Brittle
Adam J. BrittleOwner
Oregon Divorce Attorney | Oregon Criminal Defense Attorney
Adam grew up in Portland, Oregon. After high school, I first moved to Corvallis in 1993 and was an electrical engineering student at Oregon State University. After three years, I transferred to University of Colorado at Boulder to complete my engineering degree.
After my undergraduate work was complete, I worked as an electrical engineer for six years, primarily with Intel Corporation in Hillsboro, Oregon. In 2002, I started law school as an evening student at Northwestern School of Law at Lewis and Clark College while continuing to work full time at Intel. During this time, I attended law school classes after work.
In 2004, I left Intel and took a clerking job at the Portland firm of Swanson, Thomas, and Coon. There I worked with a number of exceptional attorneys, primarily in the areas of workers’ compensation and personal injury law. I also developed an interest in criminal law and criminal defense.
In 2006, I took a position as a certified law student at the public defender’s office of Multnomah Defenders in Portland. I was certified to appear in court on behalf of clients for misdemeanor trials, arraignments, motion hearings, and DUII diversions. After graduating from law school in 2006, I joined my father and wife to create West Valley Law Group PC in Corvallis, Oregon. There, I focused primarily criminal defense and civil litigation.
After two years of successful practice in Corvallis, I relocated to Portland to continue the practice of law after Tim Brittle retired. For the next 9 years I grew Brittle & Brittle P.C. to become one of Portland's most recognizable family law firms, with as many as 5 attorneys. I have now downsized and created brittle.law to focus on a more streamlined practice.
My hobbies include biking, running, computers, and recently, triathlons. People who know me will also describe me as passionate about politics and social justice.
