Richard Isaacs

Founder, Attorney, Advocate, JD

Rich Isaacs is the founder of California Special Needs Law Group.

His small town roots shaped his belief in the strength of a community-based approach to life and work. In law school, Rich quickly focused his studies on advocating and assisting some of our most vulnerable members of society. Children are a society’s most valuable asset and ensuring students have equal access to an education quickly became a calling for Rich.

Rich leads the charge at CSNLG to ensure families receive fair, effective representation at mediations, hearings and appeals. He believes that all resolutions must focus on what is best for the child and their long term future.

“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”
