Mr. Isaacs successfully litigated the case, landing an impressive verdict of attempted manslaughter. State v. Thomas Zoo ManHuskey,: In this landmark case, Mr. Isaacs represented one of the most infamous alleged serial killers in recent Tennessee history.

After more than a decade of extensive litigation, Mr. Isaacs and the defense team were able to obtain two hung juries, and the murder charges against Mr. Huskey were ultimately dismissed. State v. Kenneth KennyBartley,: Kenny Bartley was a Campbell County youth who stood trial following a school shooting that resulted in the death of the school principal and injuries to two others. Bartley initially pled guilty to second degree murder under the advice of his original attorney. On Post-Conviction review, Mr. Isaacs was successful in convincing the court that Mr. Bartleys initial counsel was ineffective, and ultimately securing a new trial for Mr. Bartley.

Joseph Armstrong,, our legal team was able to secure an outstanding result for one of the most recognized legislators in Tennessee. Mr. Armstrong, a veteran member of the Tennessee General Assembly who had served over 28 years in office, was facing three separate federal charges including conspiracy to defraud the United States, attempt to evade taxes, and filing a fraudulent tax return. Following a four-day jury trial, Mr. Armstrong was acquitted of the conspiracy and tax evasion charges. After a contentious sentencing hearing against the United States, our team convinced the Court to place Mr. Armstrong on probation with a period of house arrest rather than imposing a sentence in the federal penitentiary as requested by the Government.In ,State v. Norman Clark,, Clark was facing two counts of First Degree Murder and two counts of felony murder related to the death of an ex-girlfriend and her unborn child. Following a hotly contested trial, the jury was ultimately deadlocked and unable to reach a verdict unanimously resulting in a mistrial. Following a second mistrial by successor counsel in 2017, the State decided to reexamine their options.
