Knez Law Group

Two Generations of Family & Business Lawyers in Riverside, CA

The Knez Law Group is a Riverside based civil litigation firm representing both plaintiffs and defendants in cases throughout California. The firm is currently handling cases involving business disputes, family law and serious personal injury. In the past year, the firm has successfully prosecuted and/or defended numerous cases. Most recently, the firm has settled a multi-million-dollar products liability case involving defective residential sprinkler heads, and obtained a six-figure settlement in a legal malpractice case and a medical malpractice case. You can see more of our recent cases here. The firm takes a personal, passionate and methodical approach in family law cases, knowing when to be aggressive, when to exercise restraint and ensuring the best possible result for our clients. This approach has facilitated favorable results in several divorce and child custody cases over the past years.


For approximately 30 years the firm’s senior attorney, Fred J. Knez was a sole practitioner representing individuals, families and small businesses in California from San Diego to San Francisco. Fred has always preferred a one-on-one relationship with his clients rather than the approach taken by large law firms. Fred’s sons, Andrew J. Knez and Matthew J. Knez, worked with the firm as paralegals while completing law school. In 2014, Andrew joined his practice as an attorney and shortly thereafter, in 2015, Matthew joined the firm as an attorney as well. In 2015, Fred and his sons formed Knez Law Group.


One of the primary differences between Knez Law Group and others is that we are true litigators who are experienced enough to know when to negotiate a settlement, and fearless enough to fight all the way to trial. Each attorney at the Knez Law Group has taken cases all the way to trial when the circumstances demanded it, but we also know when to exercise restraint when a scenario required it. Whether you are looking for a family lawyer in Riverside, or need a business litigation attorney in the Inland Empire you should choose a law firm that can assess your unique case, and rely on a history of success and experience to develop the best strategy for you.
