Adam Shelton grew up in Greenfield Ohio. He received his Doctor of Jurisprudence from University of Oregon School of Law and his Bachelor of Science in Political Science and History at Ohio University. He has been practicing family law since 2011.

Adam practices all areas of family law and specializes in complex financial dissolutions and contested custody matters. He also regularly offers pro bono services to minor children who need independent representation.

Adam views the attorney-client relationship as a team effort, first and foremost. His practice style emphasizes zealous advocacy, preparedness and creative solutions to each unique set of client circumstances.

Adam serves as a member of the Multnomah County, Clackamas County and Washington County Bar Associations; the Oregon State Bar – Family Law Section, the Oregon Academy of Family Law Practitioners and the Oregon Judicial Department Family Law Advisory Committee.

When Adam isn’t in the office or a courtroom, he spends his free time grappling at a local Brazilian jiu jitsu gym, playing soccer and basketball, watching matinee Sunday movies, enjoying music and exploring the great outdoors through snowboarding, mountain biking, or hiking. He also volunteers for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

I would highly recommend Adam Shelton to anyone looking for family legal representation. Adam is hard-working and reliable. While I know he was working with many clients, I always felt like a top priority. He was prompt at responding to me and answering all my questions. Adam is trustworthy and personable. He gave me sound legal advice and helped me make the most reasonable decisions in my situation. He was always well prepared and his knowledge and hard work paid off. Divorce is never easy but working with Adam helped make the best of a difficult situation.
