“I was hit by a car while out riding last year and was unsure of how to proceed. Ken Knabe was highly recommended by several friends/acquaintances, not only because he, too, is a cyclist, but because of his professionalism and expertise.

Ken, Rob and team provided excellent advice and supported my spouse and I throughout the recovery and legal process. They handled all of the details for us; making sure my bike was replaced, my bills were paid, I received the medical care I needed for recovery, and I was properly compensated. This left me free to focus on my recovery and not worry about insurance companies, etc.

I would highly recommend the Knabe Law Firm to anyone who finds themselves in the unfortunate situation I encountered.”

“I strongly recommend Knabe Law Firm.

Last year, while riding my bicycle, I was struck and injured by an at-fault driver in Cleveland. Seeking help, I engaged with Knabe Law Firm as I saw they came highly recommended by other individuals as well as other organizations in the area.

From the moment I first sat down with attorneys Ken Knabe and Rob Thompson to the moment my case was settled, they were tremendously reassuring, professional, and knowledgeable in all aspects. As avid cyclists, they took my case and injury very seriously. The team knew how to expertly navigate all the finite details surrounding my case, and they fought thoroughly with the other party’s insurance company to maximize my settlement. If I am ever so unfortunately unlucky to be in a similar situation again, I know I can rely on Knabe Law Firm to help me through it.

Also – Not only are Ken and Rob great attorneys, they are also great members of our community. Ken and Rob serve as board/chair/committee members of various organizations where they support safe cycling as well as safe infrastructure design and planning. They are absolutely top-notch guys and I truly value their dedication to the community and the other people they advocate for and represent.”
