“I have a strange situation with my driver’s license, and sought advice on how to best handle it. I reached out to a handful of lawyers, virtually ALL of whom brushed me off and essentially told me to just deal with it. All except Russell Knight, that is. He gave me a concrete starting point, took the time to answer all of my questions, and was honest and forthcoming. What more could you ask for in a lawyer?”
~ M. C. Chicago



“I wish i called sooner. Russel did an outstanding job and got through my case so quickly. He was very responsive. Just give him a call or shoot him a message and he will accommodate you. Very knowledgeable and helpful. I have recommended him to close friends and clients as well. Nothing but good things thank you so much! Ps- free. Consultation and he speaks Spanish too!”
~ Louise F. Chicago



“Unfortunately I have had to deal with many attorneys over the years. Russell is honest, knowledgeable, experienced, responsible, responsive and aggressive (which is something you definitely want in a lawyer). He gets the job done quickly and unlike many of his colleagues, his fees are reasonable and he doesn’t “work the clock.” I have been recommending him to anyone looking for a great lawyer.”

Divorce & Family Law in Naples Is What We Do

Family Law refers to Florida law, rules, regulations, and court procedures involving the family unit when that unit comes under the purview of the courts.

These laws, rules, regulations and procedures cover everything from who gets to visit children to how a privately held business gets valued and divided.

These determinations must be made, negotiated in the clients favor and, failing that, proven in a Florida court of law.

This requires a body of family law knowledge that is both broad and deep.

Russell Knight’s has years of experience, thousands of past clients and near obsession with family law.

Put your family in the hands of someone who values your family as it exists now and will exist in the future.

Put your family and your family’s future in our firm’s hands.
