Russell Knight

Russell Knight Biography

Hi, my name is Russell Knight. I am a divorce lawyer.

If you weren’t referred to me, you probably googled some Illinois divorce law issue and began reading my 700+ articles about Illinois family law. I wrote all the articles…because Illinois family law is my passion.

I have been published numerous times by the Illinois State Bar Association.

I have been quoted regarding family law in NBC News, Parent’s Magazine, Inc. Magazine, Newsweek and many more.

I completed NITA’s 2-day deposition course, the National Family Law Trial Institute‘s 8-day regular program and the 3-day advanced cross-examination program.

I read, write and think about Illinois divorce and family law A LOT.

Divorce and family law are probably the broadest fields of law. A divorce covers contracts, litigation, and equity issues. While family law is intricate and strategic, family law is also full of big personalities who challenge each other in and out of the courtroom. When there is never a dull moment…you need a sharp mind.

Illinois divorce and family law fascinates me. My divorce cases fascinate me. I understand and communicate Illinois’ divorce and family law like they are my first language.

As Albert Einstein said, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”

If you or a loved one are in any stage of the divorce process, schedule an appointment to talk directly with me (not a receptionist, a salesperson or an associate).

There is a method the madness that is family law. If you would like your family law case to have more “method” and less “madness,” contact me for a free consultation.
