  • I was referred to Russell by a friend for the straightforward and efficient way he handled his divorce proceedings. I truly appreciated Russell's keen ability to articulate Illinois divorce law and my options in a candid and friendly manner. I felt prepared and as at ease as I could possibly be on my day in court. In Russell I had an advocate in my corner who kept things congenial on all fronts. I also appreciated the flexible payment plan we set up. I already have and will continue to recommend Russell's services to any who might need them.

  • There is an old adage that the only lawyer you like is your own, and while this might be true, I still feel compelled to highly recommend Russell Knight for the excellent service he provided. Russell helped expedite the long and sometimes complicated process of legal residency. He is personable but professional and was quick to get back to me with any queries or concerns I had. He also has a fantastic assistant- Rita who ensured all my paperwork was in order and had any important documents copied and delivered to me by both traditional mail and email. He provided an indispensable service at a very reasonable price and I highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about legal residency/citizenship.

Divorce shouldn't be an easy or pleasant experience, but Russell Knight made it as quick and painless as possible. He even set up an incredibly reasonable payment plan. Russell Knight will give you his word and he will come through for you. No one ever wants to have to hire an attorney, but if you ever do, this is the guy to call.

  • I found Russell in my neighborhood (through Yelp) and my biggest goal was to find someone I could trust and that one person to be my point of contact. Russell made me feel so comfortable with the process and explained everything to me clearly and made it very easy for me. Now that my case is wrapped up successfully, it was the most painless, simple process and such a huge relief for me. I would very much recommend Russell to anyone.
