Class Notes

Isaac M. Jaroslawicz: "After 5 years with Weil, Gotshal & Manges in New York, I remarried and moved to Miami, Florida with Shoshana (nee Berger), a former prosecutor in NY’s Family Court. We’ve been down here a little more than 20 years now.

We have two children: “Joey” -- who is almost 19 and finishing her year of seminary studies in Jerusalem; and “Jerry” -- who is 17, in his third year of high school. One dog, two cats and a monk parakeet round it out indoors. Shoshana tends to a huge butterfly garden out back. 

Workwise, I helped with WGM’s Miami litigation department for 3 years, then took a 6-month leave of absence to help Shoshana with our first child. Those six months stretched into almost 9 years, during which time I helped run a not-for-profit advocacy group, the Aleph Institute, assisting Jews with religious issues in prison, the military and other “institutional” environments. We helped have a federal law passed, the Religious Land Use & Institutional Persons Act of 2000, and was cited and quoted a few years later by the Supremes when they passed on its constitutionality in Cutter v. Wilkinson, 544 U.S. 709 (2005).

After our savings ran out and school tuitions kicked in. I went back into private practice, opening a small commercial trial and litigation practice with my wife just north of Miami Beach. We’ve been blessed over the years to have obtained excellent results for a number of commercial and private clients. We’ve also done some interesting and fulfilling community tzedakah pro bono work, sometimes with the likes of Alan Dershowitz and Nat Lewin. I’m also serving as an adjunct professor of law at Touro College South in Miami Beach. I try my best NOT to go downtown. But that’s where the courtrooms are.

Give me a call if you can (my cell is best: 305-775-7868), or respond by e-mail if you’d like: Isaac@MyLawyerIsaac.com. I’m looking forward to seeing people, recounting a few good times here and there, and hoping I’ll feel 25 years younger for having done so!
