About me

Michael Knox has been practicing law since 1989, and is well-known for
serving as a district court judge in Cabarrus County from 2000 to 2010.  During
that time, he presided over thousands of cases in criminal, civil and juvenile
court, balancing the facts of the case with the law to reach a fair and
impartial decision. Michael has now returned to the private sector representing
clients in domestic, criminal, juvenile, and personal injury cases in Cabarrus
County.  He is also a certified Superior Court Mediator. 

Michael’s private practice experience along with the expertise gained through
his tenure on the bench make him an asset to both his clients and the firm.

Michael is a native of Davidson, NC but makes Concord his home now.  He
graduated from NC State University in 1986 and went on to graduate from Wake
Forest Law School in 1989.  He was in private practice from 1989 to 2000
handling criminal, domestic, and juvenile matters in Cabarrus County.

He is a member of the Corporation for the Boys and Girls Club of Cabarrus
