Rahul Iyer, Principal attorney

Recognized as an intelligent and savvy advocate for his clients, Rahul represents individuals in all aspects of family law and domestic relations cases. Whether it is fighting for a fair modification of child support or ensuring that his client retains decision-making for a child, Rahul handles matters from inception through conclusion. Depending on what a specific situation commands, Rahul can seamlessly change gears to achieve a fair resolution through a carefully negotiated settlement, or can aggressively pursue litigation to achieve a judicial decision on the merits of the case. With a wealth of courtroom experience and history of efficiently managing a high-volume of cases, Rahul has an inherent understanding of what is needed to put his clients' interests first. Rahul has a background in finance which he parlays into being able to navigate financial issues in divorces. Staying ahead of the law’s frequent changes is Rahul’s sixth sense.

Russell D. Knight, Of-counsel

Russell Knight began working for a small general practice law firm in Chicago, Illinois. In 2009, Russell resigned from the small law firm and moved to Mexico to perfect his spoken Spanish.  A few months later, Russell Knight returned to Chicago, Illinois to open up The Law Office of Russell D. Knight. The Law Offices of Russell D. Knight began exclusively practicing family law in 2013.  Russell Knight much prefers to do one thing, Family Law, and do it well. Russell Knight still, however, uses a great deal of his general knowledge of Criminal, Immigration and Bankruptcy Law in his Family Law practice. Russell Knight has been working with Rahul since 2015.  A partnership or an associate position is too restrictive for either Russell or Rahul. Therefore, they co-counsel almost all their cases while sharing in expenses. Russell and Rahul are both originally from Canada and enjoy each other’s dry Canadian humor (or as we spell it, “humour”).
