“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.”
