Tad Brittingham has been representing clients since 2007. He’s a strong and experienced advocate who takes a friendly but firm approach to the practice of law.

Tad developed his work ethic on the football field, where he was a two-time first-team all-conference linebacker at Hanover College in Indiana. Because he was small — only 5 foot 9 and 200 pounds — Tad had to adapt and find creative ways to succeed at football. He was almost always more prepared than his opponents, both physically and mentally.

Tad takes the same approach to representing clients in family law matters. His goal is to know the opposing side’s case better than they know it themselves. He uses creative legal strategies to vigorously advocate his client’s position – both in the courtroom and during negotiations.

Tad’s goals are to put his clients’ needs first and foremost, achieve the best possible outcome, and put his clients in a position to begin the healing process and move on with their lives.


Tad grew up in Evansville, in southern Indiana, and received a degree in sociology from Hanover College in 2005 and a law degree from the University of Dayton School of Law in 2008.
He began representing clients in misdemeanor cases while he was still in law school. By the time he graduated, he had two trials under his belt.

After graduation, Tad worked at the Montgomery County Public Defender’s Office. He then spent three years conducting legal research at LEXIS-NEXIS while also maintaining a criminal law practice.

In 2011, Tad took a full-time position at the Hamilton County Public Defender’s Office. In short order, he was promoted to a supervisory role where he was responsible for five other attorneys and a legal support staff person. In June 2015, Tad was asked to join The Law Offices of Steven R. Adams. Since then, he has been representing clients in criminal, OVI, and family law cases.

Tad represents clients in Hamilton, Warren, Butler, Clermont, Brown, Montgomery, and Greene counties in Ohio. He lives in Mason with his wife and two young sons.


Tad is a recipient of the 2016 Avvo Clients’ Choice Award. This award is based on both the quantity and quality of client reviews that the attorney receives.
