About Us

Guiding You Through Complex Times

Divorce is one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to cope with. McKnight Law has the experience, strength, and resources to get you through it.

Many lawyers who start out in family law don’t last, so options for experienced attorneys are slim. Our depth of experience gives us a distinct advantage — we’ve seen an incredible variety of situations and it gives us the ability to guide our clients through a complex process.
