Sheldon Isaacs


The late Sheldon N. Isaacs (1931-2016) began his career, not as a lawyer, but as a pharmacist. He successfully owned and operated two pharmacies. He then became an attorney at the age of 42. When his son, Darryl Isaacs, graduated from law school, they co-founded the firm of Isaacs & Isaacs.

Sheldon served the country for two years in a MASH unit as a medic in the Korean War before returning to the United States to pursue his education, career, and family life. He earned a B.S. from the University of Kentucky and became a registered pharmacist in 1955. He also earned a J.D. from the University of Louisville and was a proud member of the Kentucky Justice Association.

The entire team at Isaacs and Isaacs expresses our gratitude to the work and leadership Sheldon accomplished in helping to create this esteemed law firm.
