Michael Isaak for County Court Judge, Group 14

According to Mike Isaak, candidate for the position of judge of the county court of Hillsborough in group 14, “I believe that the exercise of the functions of judge is an art form. Successful execution requires appropriate morals and values, appropriate legal and life experiences, and dedication to public service.

Isaak practiced law for 30 years. He started as an assistant prosecutor. Isaak received a long-term service award for his dedication to protecting the citizens of Florida. He then opened my own law firm.

“I have focused on criminal defense for the past 25 years. As a criminal defense attorney, I protect and defend the Constitution. I have also represented clients in various civil cases and am a member of many professional organizations,” Isaak explained.

He has tried over 150 jury trials and over 500 non-jury trials, and he has written over 300 appeals. In addition to his private practice, Isaak has taught thousands of lawyers. “I’ve given talks locally, statewide, and nationally. I often lecture on recent constitutional law decisions in criminal cases and teach Fourth and Fifth Amendment constitutional law litigation. I also have over 120 published court decisions,” Isaak said.

Isaak explained, “My legal background has a unique balance. While most trial attorneys don’t write appeals and most appellate attorneys don’t judge cases, I’ve done both.

“I will serve the citizens of Hillsborough County with dedication and commitment. I always wanted to be a judge. I believe I am qualified for the challenges that come with being a judge,” Isaak said.

Isaac’s family moved to Tampa in 1968 and he has lived in Hillsborough County for 53 years. He supports many local charities and sits on the board of the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation.

He is married to Betsy Goode Isaak, and together they have two children. Betsy is a professional musician, having performed with many local orchestras and other gigs in the Tampa Bay area.
