Very pleased
I really can't thank my attorney enough. He was very responsive and meticulous when it came to the smallest details of my case. I'll never use anyone else for my legal matters.

Efficient
With everything thing moving at warp speed, Mr. Knights showed he was able to keep up with the pace. Many of my legal questions/issues needed to be handled remotely. He was able to do so. With the assistance of software applications (Zoom, CamScanner, etc...) he was able to handle all tasks without a drive to the office. He is quick and clairvoyant. Response time is super fast! He comes highly recommended!

Awesome Attorney
My family and I were very impressed by the quality of service and care provide by Dr Knights when handling our case. There was always good communication throughout the course of the case and anything we didn't understand was addressed timely and thoroughly explained. This put our family as ease being that we had a very serious case and wasn't familiar with the legalities of it all. Dr. Knights was always very professional and made us feel like he took our case personal and genuily cared. Needless to say we were more than satisfied with not only the outcome of our case but the way it was handled from start to finish and would highly recommend his services.

Amazing Attorney
I had the pleasure of working with Stephen Knights during a challenging case involving my son. I found Mr. Knight to be an experienced, highly intelligent, honest, polite, professional, and caring attorney. He responded to my questions and concerns in a timely manner. I would highly recommend his legal services for any legal matters, and would most definitely use his services again. I am so grateful to have worked with him. His display of confidence and calm demeanor during such a difficult time reduced my anxiety, and allowed me to trust him and the process. Amazing attorney for sure!!!

Best Lawyer in the Business
Lawyer Knights represented my brother for his court case, which was a DUI charge, with class, professionalism, and elegance to beat his case and reduce his charges with just paying a fee and not serving time. Greatly appreciated.

Very professional, got results
I met with and spoke to with Attorney Knights about my dui case. Very knowledgeable guy...a lawyer that listens. He gave me all of my options and helped me weigh them out. A case that could've ruined my whole life was handled swiftly and to my satisfaction. I would recommend him if you want the best possible defense.

Awesome Attroney
Attorney Stephen Knights My experience with Attorney Stephen Knights started in the classroom at Strayer University in Morrow GA. As my Professor in the Criminal Justice Department he made sure that you knew your rights. He explained the current laws so that you as a citizen would have knowledge of what can, could, or just happened to an individual if they don't understand there rights. Stephen Knights is an Attorney that cares about his people as well as his community. He will fight for justice when it comes to his clients. I have used him to represent my son in his case. Stephen Knights is an Attorney that I have recommended to others.

Best attorney you could ask for
This guy is amazing! When we met he ask me what happened from start to finish and told me what he saw as my possible outcomes. From there he proceeded with my case with my best interest first and always made sure I was okay with every decision made. Knight treated me with respect, he never judged, he just told the truth on how he saw the case and weighing the pros and cons. Dr.Knight is a amazing attorney, he is real easy to talk to he is very relatable and most of all he cares about you and your situation when handling your case. He is beyond highly recommended in my book.

Previous client
knights Law form represented me during a criminal charge. Initially, the firm and it’s attorney was available, reassuring and diligent. This was process was over the course of several months. However, after going to the final court date and receiving the final judgement. The follow up from the firm , dropped off the radar. I called, left voicemails, emails and text several times a day. Never to receive a response. Disappointed because I entrusted my case to these professionals and was advise to take a plea. Ironically, the advise I was given after the trail was to follow up with Clayton County Sheriff office form to resolve my issue or dispute the judgement and ( after all this would be an appeal, right) . Instead I was dismissed and provided little to NO guidance on next steps. I thought this was why your hired attorneys to represent your best interest. the law office should have followed up on and provided additional guidance. I can only assume , after payment was made and judgement was done, the care and sincerity that initially was given, went out the window. It was clearly obvious, the vision, motto and culture defined as the core values was not a true definition of the care and commitment given to their clients. As a matter of fact, the attorney was previously up for judgeship In Clayton County. That should have been my red flag, that the partnership with the firm and the Clayton county justice system, was deeper that my pockets could ever extend. This did not appear to be a case that was represented by a firm that sincerely cares about the community it serves. Yet, just maybe, protecting its own interest. Last but not least, the attorney in question was a formal ADA for Clayton as well. Guess, having connections pays everybody’s bills. So, my simple advise from a commoner, taxpayer and a regular everyday person, seeking professional guidance. Is to consider all of the facts prior to entrusting your case, livelihood and your freedom.
