Our Expertise

My name is Catherine, and I welcome you to our website. Catherine Knight Family Law, LLC, is a legal practice focused exclusively on divorce and custody in Atlanta and north Atlanta counties.

Am I the right lawyer for you?

Visit the "About Catherine" page of this website, and then I invite you to come and meet with me in person for an evaluation of your case. As a Georgia divorce lawyer with 15 years experience, I have developed an approach to each client that is highly personalized: creative, individual case strategy is key.

I value my reputation as a bold advocate in the courtroom, and as an intelligent negotiator in settlement.
I am empathetic to the stress clients are under during the process of divorce, and I never forget that there is a family at the heart of every family law case.

Our Mission:

Our fees are reasonable.
This is a deliberate professional decision.
In our family law practice, we are aware that people are writing the checks, not corporations.
Please visit our "Fees" page on this website to learn more.
We keep our client list limited, and try hard not to over-commit or overbook our practice.

By choice and by design, we are a small firm. We like it that way.

Catherine Knight

Catherine Knight grew up in Atlanta, and she attended The Westminster Schools, alpha-omega. Catherine graduated cum laude from Princeton University. At Emory University School of Law, she was a Woodruff Scholar, served on the executive committee of the Emory Law Journal, and graduated with distinction, as one of the top ten students in her class.

Catherine worked in securities and corporate law at Davis Polk & Wardwell in New York City in the early 1990s. When leaving Wall Street in 1994, she was profiled in New York Magazine for an article lamenting Wall Street's loss of top female talent.

Upon returning to her hometown, Catherine worked with the former top family law firms of Warner Mayoue & Bates, as well as Davis Mathews & Quigley, before becoming a founding partner at Boyd Collar Knight, LLC.

Catherine Knight has received annual recognitions such as Atlanta Magazine’s Rising Star, Atlanta Magazine’s Super Lawyer, and Georgia Trend Magazine’s Legal Elite. Catherine was honored by Atlanta Business Chronicle, receiving the Up and Comers in Atlanta Award. Catherine has authored and presented papers at legal conferences, and served on the executive committee of the family law section of the Georgia Bar Association. She is also ranked a "10" on Avvo.com, and received the 2013 Client's Choice designation.

Catherine is now fulfilling a long-time goal of running her own individual practice, tailored to the type of clients to whom she is devoted.

On a personal note, Catherine no longer has a "bucket list." Having had the opportunity to take some time off, Catherine lived/worked on a horse farm with 32 barnyard animals, performed stand-up comedy with very modest success, learned to shoot a Glock, studied psychology at the graduate level, renovated and flipped houses, and wrote her mid-life memoirs (unpublished).

Best of all, Catherine spent time with her beautiful daughter, and also got remarried.

And then she realized ... she needed to keep her day job.


We specialize in family law. If you need further information, please don't hesitate to contact us.


My fees - $200 an hour - are well below market in the Atlanta legal community, compared with attorneys of a similar level of experience and expertise. Why? This is an important part of our mission.
I could charge, and indeed used to charge, $350 to $400 an hour.
However, hard-working professionals with suburban families, who strive to stay on a reasonable budget for all the right reasons, were stretched thin and under too much pressure to pay for the careful, high-quality legal services that they both needed and deserved.

Catherine's Hourly Rate

Attorney Time - $200

Paralegal Hourly Rate

Paralegal Time - $75

In-Person Initial Consultation

1 & 1/2 hour Consultation - $200

Please note: We do not offer free consultations over the phone or in-person.

Usually, we charge a retainer and we bill our hourly rates against that retainer. Retainer amounts vary. The retainers range from a minimum of $2000 to over $10,000 for a final trial. The retainer amount is determined at your initial consultation, and very much depend upon the complexity and the contentiousness of your family's situation.

We are open to discussing whether a flat fee arrangement or payment plan makes sense for your case.

Retainers are not flat fees unless specifically designated as a flat-fee in the Fee Agreement signed by you. In general, attorneys and paralegals bill hourly, in tenth of an hour increments, against retainers, which must be replenished if depleted.

Additional Fees/costs apply for filing, court costs, payments to third parties such as court reporters, private service of process, mediators, guardians ad litem, copy services, private investigators, financial advisers, and other direct expenses.
To retain Catherine Knight Family Law, LLC, to represent you, you must carefully review and sign a Fee Agreement, which will be provided at the consultation. The Fee Agreement - and not the terms on this website summary page - provide the terms of legal representation and mutual obligations.
We bill every month via email billing.

Payments accepted: Cash, Check, Credit Card
