... and I have had to deal with many lawyers over the years - divorce, custody, bankruptcy, more custody issues, etc. Russell is still the only lawyer I recommend to anyone looking for one. He is honest, knowledgeable, responsible, experienced and he works fast. His fees are very reasonable and he doesn't "work the clock" like so many of his colleagues with whom I have worked in the past. I highly recommend Russell Knight to anyone looking for a great lawyer.

After firing 2 lawyers we have found Russell through the internet. He is truly the best! He helped my husband and I win what seemed to be a very long custody battle of my StepSon. We have used Russell's services since 2008. He helped us establish visitation, motioned for vacation and holidays and finally when we were ready he reviewed full custody with us and explained everything. He was very homest and we trusted him 1000% with everything. If he would of through that we did not have a chance he would of told us right away. With his help and knowledge we were paired with the right Child Representative we fought hard along side with Russell to do what was best for my Step Son. Thank you Russell for everything you have helped us with and for always being so understanding and supportive. I highly recommend Russell for any case as he is very professional, known throughout the court personel, and the most important VERY REAL!

Russell and I experienced many annoying, difficult setbacks during my case. I found him to be the most PROFESSIONAL legal council I've experienced. (We easily could have had a disagreement or two). I highly recommend his services and you are more than welcome to contact me if you have any questions regarding this recommendation.

Russell has been a committed legal ally to me as I have struggled with post-decree conflicts with my ex-husband. I don't like legal conflicts and I get emotional. Russell has been very understanding and explains everything to me as clearly as he can. He comes up with new options when the conflict gets to be too much for me and I just want to quit. He knows what's right and he is willing to fight for those things. He also does his best to keep conflict to a minimum. He is not seeking to prolong the conflicts. I feel that he is in my corner even when I have lost hope. That's why I feel that I am in good hands with Russell. His fees are also reasonable and he is honest and thorough with his accounting. He is not out to squeeze out every dollar he can during our most vulnerable moments.
At this point, I expect that my post-decree woes will continue and I will continue to go to Russell to support me and defend my interests against a bully ex-husband who just wants to hurt me. I can trust Russell to make appropriate legal decisions because he has my best interest at heart and he knows what's right!

Russell helped me win a very complicated case. He was transparent, knowledgeable, responsive and was in line with his initial predictions on outcomes of the proceedings. I would use him again as needed. Highly recommended!

Russell Knight has been has been supportive and understanding from the first day we met him. He took his time in listening and comprehending our situation. Russell is knowledgeable, professional, and straightforward with his work. He keeps us updated every step of the way and if we ever have any questions he is usually always available. During a time when my boyfriend and I felt like there was no solution to our unjust problems, Russell has offered the best support and advice for a solution. So far the court has been granting us everything we deserve and we truly could not be happier. He's helping us win the battle and all for an extremely affordable price. I can not recommend anyone better.

Hi everybody, I would like to take a minute and share my personal experience with Mr. Knight and I suggest you take a minute and read it! Because your situation might be more serious that you think! Based on the reviews I read on the web and I also met with some other lawyers, I chose to work with Mr. Knight's office, and thank you God for pointing me into that direction!
January 2014 I was in a very low period of my life, my wife had separated me almost a year before, she wanted to divorce me and guess what, take bunch of my properties! I was also in a complicated change of status situation. If I say I was desperate and depressed it would be too soft. So I walked in for a free consultation in the office of attorney Russell Knight and what are my eyes seeing, small office, boxes with paperwork, two assistants, the phone kept ringing the whole 10min I was there and I said to my self - he is a busy guy! Prior to that visit I went to an attorney's office in downtown, shiny and big, the guy talked with me for almost an hour and the phone didn't ring once, needles to say I would have probably payed a lot more. Anyway, so I explain to Mr.Knight my difficult situation and he was very straight forward with me and told me exactly what was needed to be done and there was no time to wait. I had to divorce her right away and file my paperwork for my emigration case. So I put myself together and decided to act! I hired him and we filed my divorce case, even though I was angry and confused with what to do, he gave me a good advice to keep everything how it was with my wife, like don't go and take your car and don't disconnect her phone :) We had some complications with the divorce, but at the end I came to an agreement with her mom, who was the main cause for the problems and with the help of Mr. Knight, I got happily divorced! Kept what was mine and the nightmare with the constant fights and harassment was over!
Mr.Knight filled my second case in time and in just two months my status was successfully changed, and the life for me had a meaning again!
I will strongly recommend Mr.Knight services to anybody in need! I am happy I chose him for my cases. I would recommend whoever hires him to check more often their case status with his office because, as I said they are busy and sometimes may take a few days for them to update you.
Overall he is very knowledgeable of the law and his fees are very reasonable! Hands down, what he had told me in January happened for me a few months later. Thank you!

I cannot tell you how pleased I am with Russell and how fortunate I feel to have found him. He helped us get our family back together during a bitter custody battle that lasted over a year. He not only worked very hard for us, he was brilliant and compassionate. The 2 Judges we had liked him because he is very smart and likable, and he knows what they are looking for. He kept us informed and updated. He kept us hopeful but did not make promises. He coached us so well that we didn't fall apart on the stand! I would highly recommend him.

Russel is a very knowledgeable attorney and a committed advocate for his clients. I have benefited from his advice and expertise on many occasions, and have referred clients to him with great results. Additionally, Russel is fluent in Spanish, and is heavily involved in various social organizations serving Chicago's Latino community. .
