Wrongful Death Case
I was so fortunate to have Mrs. Knox represent my family. She is so compassionate, knowledgeable, and self-reliant. She worked within the firm, with Alan Brotherton, Gray Brotherton, Rhonda, and Robin to bring some peace for my family. I do highly recommend her and the entire law firm for all legal matters. She will definitely get the job done to your benefit.

Great attorney and staff
Frances and Rhonda are absolutely amazing. I was in a car accident a year ago. They have gone above and beyond to get the all the bills paid that were associated with the accident. My settlement is final a year later. Rhonda and Frances never gave up during the whole year, even when the other person’s insurance was giving them a hard time. They have served myself and my family on several occasions and have always had great service on each of these occasions. They are the best around. Will not use anyone else!!! Thank you guys for everything!

Experienced, Friendly, Professional!
When I called the office to ask for assistance creating a Will, I was kindly greeted and given a convenient appointment. When my husband and I met with Frances, we immediately felt comfortable, and could tell we were in good hands. She asked important questions in a clear and respectful manner, and handled all of our questions the same way. Within the week, we received an email containing drafts of our documents for our review. We then made an appointment to sign them after any needed changes were made or further questions were answered. Frances also shared tips and recommendations for keeping documents organized and ensuring all related matters were addressed, which was needed and very helpful. Overall a great experience! Thank you Frances!

Excellent Lawyer and Advisor
My husband and I reached out to Frances Knox at Knox Law Center to ask about getting wills and other important documents created. They were quickly and professionally made and sent to us for review. After reviewing, we were promptly given an appointment to come sign our documents. We were treated like family, as if they'd known us for years. It was a great experience and I highly recommend Frances and the entire staff.

Amazing Attorney
When my Grandmother passed away, a friend referred us to Knox Law, Denver NC. My Mother is hesitant around new people, so she asked me to set up and attend the appointment. The office was warm and welcoming. From the time we sat down with Mrs. Knox (call me Frances) we were immediately put at ease. I only attended that one appointment and after that my Mother was confident to go by herself. To the point where she told me she was going just to drop off a homemade cheeseball. For my family, that’s huge, as my Mother doesn’t take to people so easily. I appreciate all they did for us and for treating us so gently in those first few days after Nanny passed.

Frances Knox Expertly Simplifies Confusing Legal Jargon
Frances Knox expertly advised us and prepared some of our most important legal documents-- our Wills and Powers of Attorney. She brought to our attention steps needed and how best to protect and pass along to our heirs our assets and possessions. My husband and I believe Frances Knox is well versed in the nuances of the law, and skillfully avoids difficult and wordy legal jargon, which simplified our documents. She and her efficient staff pay close attention to detail. We now feel confident and prepared.

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.

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!
