Endorsed for Ethical Standing
Ms. Knight served as counsel for a co-defendant in federal litigation with which I was involved. Under a joint defense agreement, we shared case strategy, and, in the course of the litigation, I had an opportunity to be exposed to her written work product and her lawyering ability at an evidentiary hearing. They were of the highest quality.
