Education/Experience
Mr. Knight represents employees whose rights have been violated and people who have been injured as a result of the negligence of others.

In 2016, Mr. Knight obtained a $1,500,000 settlement in Schilling v. City of Manhattan Beach, a gender-harassment and whistleblower-retaliation case. In 2014, Mr. Knight was co-trial counsel in Kuwahara v. Asahi Gakuen, a gender- and national-origin discrimination and harassment case against a prominent Japanese-language school. After prevailing at trial, final judgment totaled approximately $3.4 million. In 2016, Mr. Knight was part of the appellate team securing the published opinion Soria v. Univision Radio Los Angeles, Inc., 5 Cal. App. 5th 570 (2016), holding that a physical condition that does not itself limit a major life activity may still constitute a protected disability under the FEHA when the mitigating measures (e.g., doctor visits) limit the employee’s ability to adhere to the employer’s work schedule.
