Powerful Attorney
Attorney Brette Fitton represented my children in a very complicated case. She knows how to discern the truth from the false especially if the children are coached to destroy one parent . I saw her face on Avvo, I told my wife: this face is a face of an unbiased person. I believe she worth every penny of what she charges, her selection was the best decision I have ever made God bless her soul

Outstanding Attorney
I would highly recommend Attorney Fitton for any family law case. She became my attorney after a very long legal battle. I needed a lawyer to step in and assist me with my complex case. Attorney Fitton far exceeded my expectations and was the only one after years of battling in court alone that helped me prevail. She did an amazing job representing me in this post judgment divorce case. Attorney Fitton is extremely knowledgeable, supportive, and her professional legal expertise helped me tremendously both in and out of the courtroom. I felt comfortable and confident throughout the entire legal process having Attorney Fitton as my lawyer. She went above and beyond to achieve a positive outcome for me and my minor children. She not only represented me but also fought for the rights and needs of my minor children. One of my daughters is also severely handicapped. Her professionalism and determination helped me to achieve the best outcome in my case. Attorney Fitton truly cares about her clients and always kept me informed as to the proceedings of the case. She made a very difficult legal process easier to handle. I would highly recommend Attorney Fitton and would use her again without hesitation in the future.

Incredible Attorney
Attorney Fitton is an exceptionable Attorney. She was there for me to answer my questions, meet with me and throw out ideas that she had. She communicated with me and kept me informed as to what was going on. Never leaving me in the dark. Great Communication. She also listened to my ideas and suggestions. When went into the court room she would be totally honest with me and let me know what she thought the out come would be. Even when she thought it might be low she went in there ready to fight for me. And she did. We won every case she presented. She was not afraid to try new and innovated ideas. I had good days and bad days going through a very difficult divorce. She was always there for me. I wish there were more Attorneys and people like Attorney Fitton. I can't say enough about her. If you want the best hire Attorney Fitton. She will work hard for you and your family.

Best decision ever made
Highly, highly, highly recommended. One of the most trustworthy people I have ever known. She was always prepared, confident and never failed the follow through. Her knowledgebase is exceptional and I believe that her level of experience is essential with these sensitive matters. Wouldn't dream of having anyone else represent me or my family. So incredibly glad to have chosen to work with Brette, whom I appreciate both as an attorney but also as a decent and kind human being. Her strong character consistently shines through her incredible work.

Incredible Lawyer with Grit and Integrity
Brette Holcombe Fitton dramatically exceeded my expectations as a lawyer. I was very careful about my selection of a lawyer for my divorce. I reviewed 8 different lawyers and met with 5. In my research I was fortunate to encounter several people whom I didn't know, who attested to Attorney Fitton's capabilities, and I was not disappointed choosing her. Attorney Fitton always had a plan, and supported me at every turn with her knowledge of the law and her persistence on my behalf. I could not recommend Brette Holcombe Fitton more highly.

Highly recommend
I can not speak highly enough about the counsel and support that I received from Attorney Fitton. Following a difficult divorce, I was in need of an attorney for contempt of court proceedings. The financial aspects of my situation were complicated but she was able to bring order to the case. I was most impressed with her ability to use valuable information, provided by the defendant only minutes prior to appearing before the court, to my benefit. While the legal knowledge she provided was invaluable, I also appreciated the emotional support that I received from Brette at one of the most challenging times of my life. I have, and will continue, to highly recommend Attorney Fitton, she is an exceptional lawyer.
