About Brittany

Minnesota Adoption Law Firm

Brittany Shively


Brittany’s professional career has been devoted to pursuing the best interests of children. As a former Assistant County Attorney she was a vigorous advocate for abused and neglected children.

Now, through her work in adoption, she is privileged to promote children’s best interests by helping to establish permanent homes in which they can grow and thrive.

Brittany and her husband are the parents of two daughters. As a parent, she understands that matters relating to your children cannot wait and will work diligently to accomplish your goal of adoption.

“My work in adoption has been the most rewarding of my professional career.
The joy that happens for families and children is incredible,
and I am honored to be a part of that process.”
