A True Knight In A Troubled Circumstances
I have always tried to understand & be there for marriage couples & married friends at their unfortunate time of divorce. My presence of being there to help didn't nearly approximate the physical, mental & emotional strain of dealing with an unexpected divorce of my own. A happliy married man for 15 years with 3 beautiful children; the American dream. It all changed & with 3 children caught in the middle, that's when I was led to Ruby L. Knight. She demonstrated great concern for everyone involved in this unfortunate event. She was that particular Knight if you will, that assisted me when no other help would or could. She applied wisdom, expertise & great knowledge to bring about an outcome that I believe no one else could. A divorce is a very unfortunate event, there are no winners or losers. I thank God for Ruby L. Knight being my Lawyer & representing me. I now have the great opportunity & privilege of continuing to raise my 3 beautiful children to make a great difference in this world. Thank you & God Bless... Christopher

"If you are going to war Ruby Knight is your Tank"
Ruby Knight is an Attorney that I have and will continue to recommend. I had been told by several attorneys that I had a losing case and in Georgia a father has an impossible battle seeking custody.I was referred to her by an attorney in a different field of law. He made two things very clear. Number 1: She was a tough and aggressive woman. Number 2: If I needed a Pit-bull in the courtroom she was the one. My first impression of Ruby Knight was all that I was told it would be. My consultation left me with mixed feelings. She did not beat around the bush or waste her time with tact. To me that was odd for a person trying to earn your business. It was that very quality I felt I needed in the courtroom. In a mater of minutes she had separated my facts from my opinions, slapped me with her knowledge of the law, and made it very clear that she could turn my case around. Her direct way of communicating with me as a client was awkward at first. Although she told me from the very start that she could not and would not promise I would get everything I wanted or in my mind promise me a victory. It is very clear that she does not like to lose! And she had not intentions of losing. I didn't understand a few of her strategies until the very end. If you think she is aggressive with you... you will be excited to see her on the attack . Ruby Knight is passionate about what she does. She will fought for my child like she was fighting for her own. If you want a lawyer that talks nice to you and tells you what you want to hear this is not the attorney for you . IF you want an attorney that is a straight shooter that will deliver facts and a honestly even if it hurts. Ruby Knight is your attorney. I never had to call her because the same aggression that can leave you stunned at times is the same aggression that drives her to stay on top of any and everything that will make or break your case. Walking into the court house with Ruby Knight was amazing. From the officer at the medal detector to the Judge in the court room , everyone seemed to know and respect her. Ruby Knight is great at what she does. She is your best chance for success in the courtroom. In the end I now have full custody of my child. All thanks to the hard work and no lose attitude of Mr Ruby Knight!

An Excellent Attorney & One of the Best
Ruby is very well organized, easy to talk to and an all around good attorney. I believe she is one of the best litigators in the area. I would trust her with any legal dealing I have, personal or business. Ruby Knight did a excellent job on my Workers Compensation Case and a criminal case, in which with she helped me get those criminal charges dropped! I recommend Ruby Knight to anyone who needs legal help.

A great attorney!
Attorney Ms. Knight has assisted me with my child custody cases so many years since 2012. She was articulate, knowable and effective, tried me to understand always.. ( I from another country who doesn't speak English good.. ) Ms. Knight kept me informed of each step and what the options were and what the risks were. She made the process so much easier and gave me peace of mind in a stressful, fougth heard for me. I highly recommend her!

Great advocate for the disadvantaged
If you want a lawyer who will fight for you call Ruby Knight. She gets the job done while teaching you about life. She knows how to put dishonest spouses in their place. She will fight for you to the end.

Divorce after 33 years
Ms. Knight is a dedicated and a hard working attorney who saw to the finest details with due diligence. She won the case by being vigilant about the opposing party's errors, and her own smart notes. At best, she is a caring attorney even though she could be tough with her own clients! My advice is to listen to her advice. She is worth a million bucks and more!

Divorce and custody battle
Wow! What can I say about this great lawyer Ms. Ruby Knight!! She was a true blessing and I thank God for her!! I sought out her services during a terrible divorce and custody battle. At first I thought I didn’t need a lawyer to fight my case and that I would tackle it alone, but I was wrong. If I didn’t have Ms. Knight as my lawyer I know the out come would have not gone in my favor. She’s determine, knowledgeable and hard working. She gave me hope and strength when I thought I would lose custody of my son. Ms. Knight know what she’s doing and looks out for the best interest of her clients. I have nothing but respect for her and her work. She gets the job done! I didn’t have much money for a lawyer and she worked with me and fought just as hard. I would highly recommend her and use her services again in the future.

A true litigator
Some attorneys are good with paperwork and paperwork. Ms. Ruby is great with paperwork, motions, hearings and most especially, trial. Ms. Ruby makes the litigation process easy to understand. Her compassion, patience, and advice has helped me through the biggest adversity of my life. While there is a myriad of cookie cutter, "assembly line style" attorneys out there, Ms. Ruby is different. Ms. Ruby treats her clients as people, not numbers. She is a gem, if not the gem, of the Atlanta legal community.

She is the ABSOLUTE BEST... I had an attorney before her and it seemed as if he was working with the opposing side. My husband abused me and because I had him arrested he was trying to put me and my 3 small children in the street with NOTHING... I was so weak and scared and didn’t know what to do. I WAS IN A STATE WHERE I DIDNT KNOW ANYONE!!! My very first call to her was amazing!!! She gave me strength and she told me that she cannot fight alone that I need to be strong so that I can fight with her. She prepared me for the court date. By telling me the PROPER way to respond... SHE IS A VERYYYY HARD WORKING WOMEN!!! I gave her 75% of the money and she NEVER asked for the remaining balance. I HAD NOTHING IN MY NAME AND EVEN SIGNED A PRENUP. SHE GOT ME ***EVERYTHING*** I WAS TRULY BLESSED WITH HER... SHE IS A BEAST... AND VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE she outshined the other attorney 110%... SHE HELPED ME BECOME STRONG AND I AM SO THANKFUL TO HAVE MET HER... SHE EVEN HELPED ME WITH MY CHILDREN... ***SHE’S A FIGHTER... AND SHE WILL ALWAYS I REPEAT ALWAYS WILL FIGHT FOR YOU*** If she wasn’t the way that she is she would lose her cases... I WOULD RATHER HAVE A FIGHTER THAN A LOSER OR A QUITER... ***The JUDGE was BIAS for local attorneys and if he didn’t call it fair SHE’LL PUSH FOR A JURY TRAIL***

Child Custody and Support
I was going through a very tough time. Miss Knight was very kind and passionate. She showed much empathy with my situation. I am so glad that I was able to use someone who could actually understand my issues and help me through them. I do not understand the bad reviews that I have read, but I guess you cannot please everybody. However I was pleased with my outcome and would use her again. Although I hope I never have to go through this again.

Represented Me in Medical Claim - Excellent Work
Ms. Knight was very professional in reviewing and taking my case and got me the money I needed to pay my medical bills without ever setting foot in a court room. We were able to settle out of court and quickly. Very pleased.
