Wonderful experience, great attorney
Mr. McKnight was exactly the type of attorney I was looking for to assist me with my legal needs. I had never been in a situation where I needed an attorney before and he made the process very smooth. He kept me informed with every step and explained each detail thoroughly. I truly believe he had my best interest at heart and that showed in his actions. I will recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a situation similar to mine.

Top Attorney In Wichita Falls
I do not write reviews on services or people very often. However, I feel it is important to take a moment and express my opinion of Jeff’s experience and services. I’ve known Jeff for many years and have used him to assist me with many various personal and business dealings. These include simple Q & A sessions to clarify legal issues, creating new business entities and filing the required paperwork with the State, creating a will, helping with the dismissal of speeding tickets, drafting various legal communications for business needs and other dealings. Jeff is thorough in his research and everything he has produced has been excellent. He is extremely well respected not only within the legal community, but within Wichita Falls. Jeff is a Christian and will always do what is in your best interest. I'm thankful that I can pick up the phone and know that any legal needs that I have will be taken care of quickly, professionally and for a reasonable fee. I feel confident that he is one of the top attorneys in Wichita Falls and I highly recommend him for any type of legal needs that you may have.

Very wise, sharp man. Couldn't have asked for a better attorney!!
I'm at a loss of words trying to explain just how great Jeff McKnight is. He can come off as very blunt and hard on his client, but rest assured he does so with your best interest in mind. A former resident of Wichita Falls and fairly new resident of San Antonio, I had a very complex criminal case stemming back years that I had many issues trying to address. Jeff McKnight not only listened to every bit of detail surrounding my case, but also consulted with me his ideas and options for proceeding before our court date. We rarely disagreed, but when we did, I quickly realized he was right and never questioned to his strategy thereafter. He's relatively young, but very wise and knowledgeable about the courtroom procedures and practices. His thinks outside the box and uses his knowledge to his client's advantage. Despite our initial disagreement he never made me feel as if he wasn't on my side fighting to prove my innocence. He made me realize just how unorganized and conniving the District Attorney's Office is. We've lived in a world where you’re raised to believe you’re innocent until proven guilty, rather than living in reality where you’re actually guilty until proven innocent. Had I not retained Jeff McKnight to represent me, I seriously doubt I would be sitting here expressing my gratitude for crossing his path. I've had bad previous experiences with a few attorneys and questioned their sincerity in representing their client's, but not Jeff McKnight. There will never be enough words to express my sincerest gratitude for Jeff McKnight and his staff. After such a negative experience with Wichita County's "justice" system, I hope to never have to enlist in the services of another attorney, but if I do, Jeff will be the first person I call. I highly recommend The Law Office of Jeff McKnight, P.C.

Great Guy-A Lawyer That Listens
I was an out-of-town guy involved in a divorce in Wichita Falls, not of my choosing, in what had turned into nothing but a 2 year living Hell shakedown, in a court run by a corrupt judge (89th-Mark Price). Jeff took my case after 2 lawyers had quit me. Jeff is a nice guy that will listen to you. He did not try to take advantage of me, like the other lawyers I had. That is totally unlike any other divorce lawyer in Wichita Falls. I asked him to file two post-trial motions, which he did, and he took it from there, getting me out of a potentially very bad situation. He chooses his words carefully and he does not say anything bad about anyone. He charges $175 an hour which is reasonable. Sometimes he does not communicate, but I learned that if there is nothing to communicate, he just does not do it. He's low key and even keeled.
