Great Attorney and Staff
I called Robert Knight's office after being in a wreck back in 2015. We just finished it (2020), due to the insurance company dragging it out. Robert and his staff kept me informed on what was going on the whole time. They are very nice, professional, friendly,... I could go on. I truly couldn't have asked more from them! Also, I was more than happy with the amount of money he got for me. Robert Knight and his staff are AWESOME! I highly recommend him!

Professional, Great Communication, Always Prepared
I am so appreciative of Robert Knight and his staff. He has represented me with a high level of professionalism, provided excellent communication, and has always been prepared for our meetings and hearings. This has been a long battle and sometimes discouraging process for me, but Mr. Knight's team has worked diligently to move this case forward. When compared to my previous experience, they have excelled in every way. While the cost of legal work is sometimes overwhelming, I believe the work Mr. Knight and his team produce is quality and worth the expense.

Top Notch Attorney
We hired Robert on two occasions for child custody cases. His expertise on family court were exactly what we needed. Robert was upfront and personable with us and delivered on the things that were important to us. We would highly recommend The Knight Law Firm to anyone looking for great representation, you will not be disappointed!

Custody and divorce lawyer
I hired Robert Knight a few years ago for a custody and divorce case. He was very professional and methodical. I would highly suggest using Mr. Knight if you are in a similar situation.

Amazing work!
We hired Mr. Knight as our attorney for a custody battle. Sometimes being a client is very frustrating waiting on the legal system to get things in order, but Mr. Knight kept reassuring us that all would end well. He was right! He is a quiet attorney, but he does amazing work! I have met other clients of his and everyone has the same opinion. He is always on time, has everything in order, and wins his cases. I definitely recommend Mr. Robert Knight!

An Attorney who gets the job done!
I hired Mr. Knight several years ago for a custody battle I knew would be tough to say the least. He stuck it out with me and never lost sight of our goal, (my kids and their well-being). We faced many obstacles, but in the end we prevailed and Mr. Knight came through for me. There is not enough I can say about Mr. Knight and his professionalism, courtesy, and attention to detail. I had fired two other attorneys before finding Mr. Knight. He has gone above and beyond for me and has never let me down.

Child custody
I hired Mr Knight thru my child custody case and from the first consult to our last court date Mr Knight was there for me. I feel it was handled very professionally. With Mr. Knight being a father I felt he was handling my case as if it was his own. My case was not easy but we stuck with it and I received full custody of my 3 minor children. With Mr Knight being a father and also a Christian I knew my case would be handled the best way it could be. If or when I need another lawyer I Will hire Mr Knight again. Mr Knight is the real deal. I would recommend him to anyone

FAIR AND UP FRONT
Robert was very up front both professionally and personally on how to deal with the specifics in my case. Custody battles are tough and it's good to have the peace of mind that your lawyer has both, you and your kids, best interest in mind. The staff at Knight Law Firm was also very inviting and helpful throughout the journey. Thank you Knight Law Firm!!

Great and Personable Attorney
Mr. Knight has been hearing a custody case for my family. His officer is prompt in responding and has been helpful every step of the way. I couldn't imagine having anyone else at our side during this difficult time.
