OUR ATTORNEYS

H. Edward Knox

Founder - Knox Law Center
I am the senior managing partner of Knox Law Center. I am a Board Certified Trial Specialist with the National Board of Trial Advocacy. I was chosen by North Carolina attorneys and recognized by Business North Carolina magazine as a Legal Elite in 2003, 2005, and 2006. I have an AV rating by Martindale-Hubbell, which is a “very high to preeminent” rating among my peers. I am also the recipient of the Super Lawyers Award for 2006 – 2015. In 2008, I was inducted into the General Practice Hall of Fame by the North Carolina Bar Association.
Growing up in rural Lincoln County, Allen was blessed with a brilliant analytical mind and won a full ride to UNC as a Morehead Scholar, including summer programs in business and law.  Instead of cashing in, he decided to use those blessings to help people who are in trouble.

“I really care about my clients” says Allen. “Most have a legitimate story to be told but are up against the government or powerful insurance companies. My job is to know the law and the evidence inside-and-out, come up with a winning strategy, and use it to convince the judge or jury.”


Francis S. Knox

Partner - Knox Law Center
I specialize in representing those who have suffered personal injuries from motor vehicle accidents. I fight vigorously for my clients who have been involved in accidents and suffered personal injuries and general damages. I take special interest in each and every injury claim, and without hesitation, expect insurance companies to do the same, in order to make certain you receive all of the compensation to which you are entitled.

Michael Knox

Partner - Knox Law Center
I have been practicing law since 1989, and am well-known for serving as a district court judge in Cabarrus County from 2000 to 2010.  During that time, I presided over thousands of cases in criminal, civil and juvenile court, balancing the facts of the case with the law to reach a fair and impartial decision. I have now returned to the private sector representing clients in domestic, criminal, juvenile, and personal injury cases in both Mecklenburg and Cabarrus Counties.  I am also a certified Superior Court Mediator and Family Financial Mediator.

Heather Piercy

Associate Attorney - Knox Law Center
I am an associate with this firm who focuses my practice on workers’ compensation cases. I am passionate about workers’ compensation cases because I believe that injured employees deserve protection and justice. I also regularly handle personal injury and other civil litigation matters. I have been with the firm for more than four years, and I work on a team with H. Edward “Eddie” Knox, our managing partner.

Lisa Godfrey

Associate Attorney - Knox Law Center
I received my degree of Juris Doctor from The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., after completing my undergraduate studies at the University of Maryland.  I began practicing law with the firm in 1982.

My practice includes business and construction litigation.  I also advise a variety of businesses on corporate law, employment and contract matters.  In addition, I handle personal injury and professional malpractice cases.

J. Brad Champion

Associate Attorney - Knox Law Center
The primary focus of my practice is litigation, with emphasis on family and criminal law (adult and juvenile).  I received my Juris Doctorate from Georgia State University College of Law, in Atlanta, Georgia after completing a Master’s Degree in Philosophy at Georgia State University, and undergraduate studies at UNC-Charlotte. I am a member of the North Carolina State Bar, North Carolina Bar Association, and the North Carolina Advocates for Justice.

  • Allen Brotherton and Sherry Crump are an outstanding legal team. They answered all my questions and provided me the highest quality of service. Allen is an experienced attorney from all accounts, I knew this going into his offices. I was pleasantly surprised his willingness to really explain his thought process in handling my case. This was very important to me as it gave me the confidence to follow his recommendations. At the end, the outcome was favorable to me. I have no doubt that it was a direct result of my legal representation.

Our Legal Services

Experienced Charlotte attorneys ready to work for you

Personal Injury

No accident is ever handled the same way. There are never any dumb questions when you walk in our doors. We know the law, but we know that our clients may not know all the ins and outs of what happens when you are in an accident.

Criminal Defense

At the Knox Law Center, our criminal defense attorneys work to tip the scales of justice in our clients’ favor. We use innovative legal strategies to protect our clients’ rights and minimize the impact of a criminal charge.

Family Law

Our lawyers work with our clients to equitably resolve divorce disputes and related issues. Many cases require the litigation of the issues related to separation in a courtroom. Others, however, can be resolved outside of the courtroom and are more expeditiously resolved by way of mediation or arbitration.

Wills & Estate Planning

Whether you are starting a family, growing a business, going through a divorce or approaching retirement, your estate plan needs to reflect your goals. At the Knox Law Center, our lawyers understand how changes in your life affect estate planning. They are also prepared to help you through complex estate planning litigation.

Worker's Compensation

If you have been recently injured at work, this may be the first time you have had to deal with North Carolina’s complex workers’ compensation system. The insurance companies that provide this coverage can take advantage of your inexperience. Many people who have valid injury claims do not receive all of the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve because they did not know the rules.

Business Law

When choosing a law firm to handle your business legal matter, experience should be a top priority. At the Knox Law Center in Charlotte and Denver, North Carolina, our attorneys have a combined 60 years of legal experience. We can help you resolve your matter efficiently and effectively.
