As a sixth-grade student in Magnolia, LaKeysha Greer Isaac had never met an attorney, but became inspired by the story of Constance Baker Motley, one of America’s pioneering civil rights lawyers.
Today, Isaac is a partner with Jackson law firm Cosmich Simmons & Brown and following the lead of her hero. Her practice focuses on complex toxic torts, products liability and general/commercial matters.
In 2013, Isaac was named as a Fellow of the Young Lawyers Division of the Mississippi Bar Association. The Emory University School of Law graduate is president of the Ebony Pearls Foundation, which recently awarded over $10,000 in scholarships to college-bound African-American high school seniors.
In 2013, as chair of the Junior League of Jackson’s ACT Prep Workshops, Isaac spearheaded the project to prepare high school students for the ACT test.
In her leisure time, she enjoy reading and creative writing.
