Estate Planning
Frances Knox took what I felt was an overwhelming and complicated process of Estate Planning and made it simple. She provided me with knowledge and options I did not know were available and explained things until I understood. I felt important to her, never rushed. She made me feel that comfortable. She has my respect, appreciation, and business.

Knowledgable and Professional
Frances helped us with our estate planning and made it a seamless and easy process. She made sure to explain to us how to handle other items as well (Life Insurance, Bank Accounts, etc) so that settling our affairs for our heirs would not be a complicated process. She is kind, sensitive and professional and I highly recommend her to handle any legal matters you may have.

Compassion and Excellence!
Frances and her team were wonderfully compassionate and effective for our family. She guided us to an excellent out of court solution when we were devastated by a drunk driver. She was able to create a positive result when it seemed impossible. I believe I hired the best attorney for the situation but I also made new friends.

Highly Recommend
Frances Knox and her team were fantastic when it came to my personal injury claim. They accepted me immediately, kept good communication throughout the entire process and even accomplished way more than I had originally expected! They came highly recommended to me and now I'm passing the favor. If you have an issue you need help with, especially if you are a first responder, Knox is the way to go!

Thank you to Frances falls short...
in trying to say how much we appreciate all Frances and her staff, especially Angie Montgomery, have done to help us. There were times I felt defeated, and yet through the whole 2 year process, you didn't give false hope, but you and Angie gently encouraged me to hang in, that it would take time, and you were working for the best possible outcome. And I did and you all did. I appreciate the work on the rear end accident and on my will.

Great Experiance
I worked with Frances and Robin to settle my husbands estate. The compassion, understanding and patience these ladies had during the past 15 months with me was outstanding. I would recommend them to anyone who needs quality service, a friendly office, and people who genuinely care about you.

Excellent Experience
Ms. Frances and her staff were absolutely amazing and always extremely helpful. By far, the best decision that was made when choosing to work with her. There was never anything too much or too tedious to ask of her and she always was ready to help with a warm heart and a smile. While no one wishes or hopes to need to need legal representation, I would highly recommend in the event it is ever needed. It's evident that Ms. Frances takes her career and her clients very, very seriously and that's what's always most important to ensure that a client is taken much care of.

Estate Planning
We worked with Frances to update our will---and with some of the recent changes in estate law, we are really glad we did. Frances provided information, counsel and a modern will which allows us to take advantage of the new laws. We recently signed our new will (and other documents---power of attorney, living will, etc) and we couldn't be happier with Frances and her staff. No doubt, we are now much better prepared for whatever the future holds for us and our family. Thank you so much Frances.

Review for Frances Knox
Worked with Frances and her staff to get our wills updated. They made the process so easy and provided some great tools that we were able to pass along to family members to help them in planning for the future. Will definitely use this firm next time we need legal advice or representation.
