Frances Knox received her juris doctorate from Wake Forest School of Law after graduating summa cum laude from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and has been with the firm for over thirty years.

Frances specializes in representing those who have suffered personal injuries from motor vehicle accidents. She fights vigorously for her clients who have been involved in accidents and suffered personal injuries and general damages. She takes a special interest in each and every injury claim, and without hesitation, expects insurance companies to do the same, in order to make certain you receive all of the compensation to which you are entitled.

Frances is dedicated to making sure accident victims receive fair compensation for their injuries and general damages, and that emotional and financial problems are addressed during the settlement process. She and her husband, Eddie Knox, take a team approach to handling personal injury cases. Frances and Eddie live in Verdict Ridge, www.verdictridge.com, in Denver, have three children and eight grandchildren, and are active members of Bethel Presbyterian Church in Cornelius.

Frances works from the firm's Charlotte office on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and from the firm's Denver office every Tuesday and Thursday.

After being in a vehicle accident over two years ago, it was on a recommendation that I chose Francis Knox to represent me, this would be the best decision I could have made. From day one, Francis made me feel like I was the top priority and that continued throughout the duration of my case. With Francis it was about me and getting a fair settlement not about her fees. She always kept me update on the status of my case and what I should expect. It didn't feel like a client lawyer relationship, she was professional, showed compassion, empathy and always had a smile. When the case was finally settled I was very pleased with the outcome and how Francis worked on my behalf to make sure I got the best and fair deal. If you are looking for an attorney, Francis Knox would be my recommendation. Francis Knox is the Best and a True Blessing.
