Thank you so much Russell!

From the first day I met him he explained to me how everything would go, step by step, in each phase of my divorce/child custody case. He was right every time!

read moreI have known Russell for many years and have also been opposing counsel to him.Russell is one of those brilliant people who knows a lot about everything. He is the person I go to whenever I have a question outside of family law (my area of expertise), such as immigration or criminal defense. Russell also deeply cares and respects his clients while also providing services at reasonable rates. I think Russell's clients are very lucky to have him for a lawyer.

read moreAttorney Russell Knight was very helpful during my legal process. Russell took the time to answer all my questions. His professionalism was second to none and his staff was very helpful. I live in the far south suburbs and I did not hesitate to travel to the north side of Chicago because I was very pleased with the service. Legal issues can be very intimidating and at times overwhelming, Russell made me feel at ease during a very difficult time in my life. For that, he will always have my gratitude.

For excellent legal services, Russell ranks at the top.

read moreI contacted The Law Office of Russell Knight to represent me in my divorce case. I was unsure of the process, had many questions, and felt overwhelmed. After sitting down with Mr. Knight and his staff, my questions were answered and I felt more at ease with the process ahead. Mr. Knight's legal fees were more than fair and his billing was respectable. He was available and attentive for questions throughout the process and I believe it is because of Mr. Knight that my divorce was executed in the smoothest manner possible. Thank you Russell for your legal counsel and professionalism. You give attorneys a great reputation. I would recommend Russell D. Knight to my friends and family.

read moreThere is an old adage that the only lawyer you like is your own, and while this might be true, I still feel compelled to highly recommend Russell Knight for the excellent service he provided.

Russell helped expedite the long and sometimes complicated process of legal residency. He is personable but professional and was quick to get back to me with any queries or concerns I had. He also has a fantastic assistant- Rita who ensured all my paperwork was in order and had any important documents copied and delivered to me by both traditional mail and email.

He provided an indispensable service at a very reasonable price and I highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about legal residency/citizenship.

read moreI was referred to Russell by a friend for the straightforward and efficient way he handled his divorce proceedings. I truly appreciated Russell's keen ability to articulate Illinois divorce law and my options in a candid and friendly manner. I felt prepared and as at ease as I could possibly be on my day in court. In Russell I had an advocate in my corner who kept things congenial on all fronts. I also appreciated the flexible payment plan we set up.

I already have and will continue to recommend Russell's services to any who might need them.

read moreIf you are considering a divorce in Illinois, Russell Knight is the attorney to see. He is extremely diligent, explains the system in a way that makes sense to a non-attorney, and provides impeccable representation for his clients. Highly recommend!

read moreHis website is outstanding. I left a message asking for a call-back and received a call within an hour. Although I didn't retain Mr. Knight, because of my specific situation, he did answer my questions and I felt more comfortable going forward.

Excellent service!
Lucy, a paralegal at this firm, was extremely helpful and very professional. I am so glad that I found her and she was able to assist me with my issue. I didn't end up needing to go to court, but she answered all my questions clearly and responded with a strong understanding of the various laws while walking me through the process. Lucy was reassuring and followed up in an expedient fashion. I would recommend this firm to anyone.

I reached out to Attorney Knight when I thought I was ready to commence my divorce. He listened to my situation and gave me very straight-forward sage advice on what to expect, what he would do in my specific situation, and on next steps. Unfortunately I wasn't as ready as I thought at that moment and didn't proceed until a year later, after we moved out of the area. I reached out to him again then and he was again quick to respond and with helpful information. Unfortunately Russell is not licensed where we now live, so I'm disappointed about that. But if you find yourself in this situation, you would be well-represented by Attorney Knight.

Thank you
Thank you Russell you've earned our respect as a family law attorney. In the midst of confronting a not so pleasant opposition you remained composed and helped my husband through through and you kept his children's best interest in mind. You were up against a not so pleasant opposition.

I needed advice about a legal matter regarding my assets and Russel called me back on the same day with a free consultation. He was extremely friendly and personable and very polite. He actively listened, understood my concerns and addressed them giving me a sound peace of mind about my concerns. I am so happy I was able to receive his advice. If I ever have family law needs I will definitely be giving him a call in the future. I 10/10 recommend Mr. Knight!
