Ms. Knight was very kind to help me in an uncomfortable situation. She was professional and knowledgeable. I do not believe I could have had better representation. S.
I was charged with a felony DWI. Hope Knight was my attorney. I was not drunk, but I knew my previous convictions might hurt me at trial. Ms. Knight tried my case to a jury and got a NOT GUILTY. I can't say enough good things about her. H.M.
I have been in court more times than I can count. Most lawyers are only there for the money but Ms. Hope listened to what I had to say and worked hard to get me a real good deal. M.
