Our Family Law Attorneys
Hi! I’m Russell Knight and I was born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada. My family moved to the United States in 1991 and we all started our own businesses here in this great country.
I attended Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois and graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Computers Systems.
After two years working as a computer programmer for a Fortune 50 company, I decided that I’d rather work with people than machines.
So, I enrolled in the University of Illinois College of Law in Urbana, Illinois.
Upon graduating from the University of Illinois College of Law in 2006, I began working for a small general practice law firm in Chicago, Illinois.
After 3 rough and tumble years learning how a family law firm works in the great Recession, I resigned from the small Chicago law firm and moved to Mexico to perfect my spoken Spanish. A few months later, I returned to Chicago, Illinois to open up The Law Office of Russell D. Knight.
The Law Office of Russell D. Knight in Chicago is now a premier Chicagoland area family law firm and I’m very proud of the business I have built.
I later got my license to practice law in Florida and opened up a family law firm in Naples, Florida. I, typically, spend most of my time in Naples, Florida. However, my staff for both the Chicago and Naples, Florida offices are busy in a tall tower in Chicago working on cases for both locations.
