Bonnie McKnight was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and went to high school in Las Vegas, Nevada. She attended the University of Washington in Seattle, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and History. She went on to earn her Juris Doctorate from California Western School of Law in San Diego, California, graduating cum laude.

During Bonnie’s time at California Western, she had the honor of working as a clinical student with the California Innocence Project, a clinical program dedicated to releasing wrongfully convicted inmates. Additionally, Bonnie was also a member of the California Western Law Review, where her comment “Drone Technology and the Fourth Amendment: Aerial Surveillance Precedent and Kyllo Do Not Account For Current Technology and Privacy Concerns” was published. She also gained experience working as a judicial extern with the United States District Court for the Southern District of California.

In 2016, Bonnie joined Hyde & Swigart as an associate. Her practice primarily consists of consumer class actions and individual mass torts, where she advocates on behalf of consumers who have been wronged by large corporations.

Bonnie is a member of the San Diego County Bar Association and Consumer Attorneys of San Diego. In her spare time, Bonnie enjoys walking her dogs at dog beach, paddle boarding, and cooking.



Hyde & Swigart has helped thousands of consumers in Minnesota, California, Arizona, Nevada, Washington, Colorado, Michigan, Texas, Illinois, and Washington DC with their legal issues, and we have never seen two cases that were identical. You should never assume your situation is the same as something that is described on this web site, or that you read elsewhere on the Internet. Each situation is unique, and in our opinion, each situation needs to be thoroughly and independently reviewed by a competent consumer rights attorney. While we are happy to do that for you for free, we cannot do that solely on this web site. Even our evaluation forms are mere starting points. You should never assume your case, your situation, or your set of facts, are covered in their entirety by this web site. If you have questions about your potential case, we will be glad to discuss them with you at no charge. However, do not act, or fail to act, simply because of something you read or see on this web site. Click here to read more.
