Biography

Ken Knabe is Greater Cleveland's Bike Attorney. He has EARNED this title, unlike many others who profess to be Bike Attorneys yet who have no real experience cycling and who do nothing to help make the cycling community safer. He consistently supports and sponsors the bike community AND is an avid cyclist who protects, and specializes in representing, cyclists injured by unsafe drivers. He takes it personally when a fellow cyclist is injured by an unsafe driver! Ken wrote the book on Bike Law: "Cycling Rights: Bicycles, E-Bikes and Micro-Mobility Devices". He does all he can to promote cycling safety by serving on Vision Zero Cleveland’s Maintenance and Fleet Vehicle Sub-Committee since its inception in 2018.

He is a former CATA President, a highest "A" Rated personal injury lawyer and Top 50 2022 Cleveland Super Lawyer with extensive trial experience and numerous publications on Ohio bike injury law. Knabe Law Firm is one of only two firms in Ohio to achieve Silver Designation by the League of American Bicyclists.


Ken’s appearances include WCPN Ideastream, WKYC Channel 3, Cleveland.com, CoolCleveland.com, Lakewood Observer, Cincinnati Enquirer, Columbus Dispatch, Cleveland Public Library and Cleveland Law Library. A corporate sponsor of Bike Cleveland and co-author of the Bikes and the Law section on its website, he serves on the boards of the Ohio Bicycle Federation and the Ohio to Erie Trail. His law office is at 14222 Madison Avenue in Lakewood, Ohio. Ken can be reached at 216-228-7200.
