I worked with Brita for 7 months, and despite not winning the case, I would not have chosen anyone else to work my case. She worked diligently to build my case and followed up anytime there were updates to my situation. All of these qualities are rare not only in the legal industry, but in many client-facing industries. If I did it over again, I would still use Brita.

Brita was an amazing lawyer, she always kept me informed of what was going on in my case, and she understood exactly what I wanted. My jurisdiction was in the state of Washington and I was living in a different state, even with the long distance everything worked out perfectly. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Brita is an incredible attorney. Jurisdiction for my case is in Washington, but I live in another state. I never had the pleasure of meeting Brita face to face, but felt the same inter action as you would being in close range. In a time that you feel most vulnerable and stressed, she reminds you not to worry. She is punctual, informative, and she knows the law. She was able to settle my case without going to trial. This in turn saved me money in flight fees, missing work and time away from my children. I would highly recommend Brita to anyone needing legal assistance. Thank you for all you have done! You provided comfort from a distance when I needed it most.

There aren't words to express the level of satisfaction I experienced with Brita. She was responsive, available and very proactive in my case.
Her opposing council was from a high profile, high dollar firm. Brita was able to filter out all the ridiculous and non pertinent details, and effectively deal with the issues that were pertinent to the case. Brita dealt specifically with my concerns and was able to conclude the divorce with the terms exceeding my expectations.
I can recommend her services with no hesitation.

Facts: Took on my case with precision and disregarded that the other side currently had custody. Brita was able to show the court that I was telling the truth, and the other person was not. When I wanted to speak and clarify a few things in court, she even gave me the silent finger to make sure I let her do her thing, and she was right! Brita and her staff had made me feel welcome, and trust the justice system. I have had a few lawyers in the past, but you will not show me praising them. This is my first genuine praise and its well deserved.
I have had full custody of my child for the majority of this year. The mother did not make any effort to spend time or see our child. Out of the blue she demanded her back and wanted to yank her out of her settled home with me. Brita and her team went to work. Gathered as much information and proof as I could, and she pieced together a strong case for us to present to the court.
Court can be scary when you have a lawyer who is out just for the money. Brita cares about what you are going through and is direct about what can happen. Sugar coating things is not her style, which prepares you for the good and bad things that may happen in court.
Life is not always fair and court follows that same rule, but having Brita Long represent you can help bring fairness on your side.

Brita has been a life saver. I'm going through a nasty custody battle with my x-husband and I don't know what I would do without her. She has been my rock. She is very professional, honest, always available and she's a fighter. I definitely recommend her.

On my behalf Brita Long filed a judgment for me. When I went in for my initial meeting she was punctual, knowledgeable, organized, direct, composed, creative, and extremely understanding of my situaltion. I have to admit, I wanted a women this time around and she surpassed all of my expectations. The entire time, my attorney kept me informed of what was going on and clarified those things I didn't understand. She expedited the case in a realistic amount of time. Brita is definitely honest and my advice is to be absolutely honest with her. Brita's pricing is fair and reasonable. I have dealt with several lawyers in the past and she is absolutely the BEST. I've had a great relationship with her and hope to keep in touch with her in the future.

My previous attorney resigned from my case in the middle of my divorce proceedings, in an instant I was without representation and l felt anxious and bemused. I spent many stressful days and hours on the phone trying to find an attorney to take my case, I kept getting the same answer over and over - NO. I was at the end of my rope.
Brita to the rescue... When I contacted Brita for the first time she was compassionate and empathetic toward my circumstance and agreeded to take on my case. Brita said 'YES'.
She then held my hand, let me cry on her shoulder, ask stupid questions and all the while guide me through this very unfamiliar territory. I appreciated her knowledge, wisdom and guidance as she walked me through each step of the divorce process.
Brita is a true advocate for her clients, she left no stone unturned.
Thank you Brita -

Brita is clear, direct and as rigorous as they come -- she neither shies away from delivering the hard truth, nor does she wilt when she has to go battle.
I have seen her deftly, with a single stroke, pull the linchpin out of opposing argument. She is a gifted attorney who I undoubtedly want to have on my side in the unfortunate event of litigation. No one -- I mean no one -- is going to pull the wool over her eyes. She knows the spectrum of human behavior and from miles away can smell the scent of either reason or unreasonableness. Her first approach is always motivated to create an opportunity for agreement.
I have so valued Brita's work in the context of my divorce that I hired her for several other items and points of business. In all contexts, she supports her clients in making sound decisions and you know she is there to protect your interests.
She doesn't claim authority when it is not her bailiwick. Brita is efficient yet generous with her time and her fee structure makes the attorney-client relationship so much easier, so much less financially charged.
I am an ever grateful client.

It is my opinion that Brita Long had no interest in my case. She did very little paperwork in the timely matter, motions were denined due to being filed without the fees, after several months of "work' was still presenting papers to the court that misspelled my name and confused the opposing party's name with my witnesses names. She had no preperation or knowlege of the case after Day one. Do yourself a favor and concider a different Lawyer. You will be disappointed with Brita Long

Brita Long has been the greatest thing I could have had to get me through a complete maze of legal hearings and a complicated child custody case. Brita and her staff were always there for me to help with even the smallest question. She made sure I understood what was happening and kept me aware of what was yet to come. I am very grateful for all of her hard work and dedication to my case. She made me feel that my case was her number one concern everytime I spoke to her.

Brita helped me through a difficult divorce. She was organized and thorough and I trusted her to help me navigate through the system. She was honest about what I could expect and discouraged unrealistic expectations. I believe she represented me and my interests very well and was very effective. I hope I never need her help with something like that again, but if I have a friend who does, I will recommend her highly.

Ms Long is my hero. Through out a long and ugly custody battle she never deviated from focusing on what was best for my children. I labelled her my "bulldog" because she was unrelenting when going to "battle" for me. Thanks to her experience, dedication, and caring we prevailed at trial following a long custody battle. More importantly, my children prevailed. We share a wonderful relationship following a traumatic period thanks to Brita always advising "the high road" even during the most difficult times. She was a "straight shooter" and was not afraid to tell to me like it was. My current husband also retained Brita for his custody battle where he prevailed. My case included issues of domestic violence and abuse. My husband's case involved issues of mental health and substance abuse. Brita prove knowledgeable in all. I would not hesitate to retain her services again.
