Mariam Zadeh ’95 at First Mediation Corporation
November 6, 2013 Digital Journal - David Isaac, chief executive officer at The Garden City Group, Inc. (GCG), spoke at the Dean’s Speaker Series at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City on Oct. 16.
The Dean’s Speaker Series connects students with prominent alumni and friends of the law school, who share their experience and insights on building a career and pursuing goals.
Isaac, a Cardozo alumnus, gave an overview to students about pursuing career goals and the many legal career paths available, including legal administration services. In addition, Isaac talked about his leadership role at GCG and the matters that the firm assists with when handling a class action settlement, bankruptcy cases and other legal and regulatory matters.
“Cardozo provided me with an excellent foundation for my legal career. It was an honor and a rewarding experience to return to my alma mater and share my industry knowledge with the students studying at Cardozo,” said Isaac.
Isaac's distinguished career in the law has spanned more than 25 years. He has been one of GCG's senior executives since joining the firm in 1996 as its vice president, director of legal services, and has been instrumental in spearheading GCG’s growth. In 2000, he became president, and since that time, the company has grown from a 50-person firm to one that employs more than 1,000 people in 10 offices nationwide.
Isaac’s unparalleled experience has led GCG to its position as the premier provider of legal administration services. He is a graduate of Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and Yeshiva College.
“David is a great example for our students of innovative leadership and the impact that our alumni have on the world,” said Matthew Diller, dean of Cardozo Law School. “He was marvelous in giving a great overview of the work he and The Garden City Group, Inc. oversees, taught our students a lot about how class action litigation works in practice and the role of administration in the process, and was generously responsive and encouraging to our students.”
