Sheldon N. Isaacs 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 holds a B.S. from the University of Kentucky and became a registered pharmacist in 1955. He also holds a J.D. from the University of Louisville and is a proud member of the Kentucky Justice Association.
