On Thursday, October 22, Legal Counsel for the Elderly (LCE) honored Boies, Schiller & Flexner partner Bill Isaacson with a Sustained Excellence and Outstanding Commitment award for his distinguished pro bono service.
Mr. Isaacson has provided legal assistance to LCE clients on a wide variety of matters, especially in the area of nursing home residents’ rights. He is currently involved in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the property tax sale process in Washington, D.C. In the past, he played a key role in the joint LCE-Department of Justice effort to force the closure of D.C. Village, a poorly run nursing home that was hemorrhaging Washington, D.C., dollars. He also successful obtained two superior court orders dealing with a government agency’s failure to promulgate a model discharge plan, as well as another order forcing the promulgation of assisted living regulations.
Mr. Isaacson’s main practice area is complex commercial litigation.
