Chief Judge Daniel P. Jordan III and the Board of Judges of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi are proud to announce that on January 5, 2021, LaKeysha Greer Isaac of Madison, will succeed Linda R. Anderson as Magistrate Judge in the Northern Division at Jackson. Ms. Isaac is a 1997 graduate of Millsaps College with a major in Political Science and minors in English and the Classics. She also served as President of her sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha, and was inducted into Omicron Delta Kappa. She is a 2000 graduate of Emory University School of Law. She began her legal career with Forman, Perry, Watkins, Krutz & Tardy, PLLC, and since 2003 she has been an attorney and now a senior partner with Cosmich, Simmons & Brown, PLLC. Issac has a nationwide litigation practice and serves as national coordinating counsel for multiple clients in complex toxic tort and product-liability matters. In that capacity, she manages large teams of attorneys and paraprofessionals from across the country and has represented her clients in trials with multi-million-dollar exposure. Admitted to practice law in Mississippi, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Ms. Isaac is an A/V rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell whose accomplishments have garnered national recognition. Among her many accolades, she has been named as a Mid-South Super Lawyer (seven times); Top 50 Women Attorneys in the Mid-South; America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators; and America’s Top 7 Figure Litigators. Despite her national presence, Ms. Issac has been very active in bar-related affairs and community service. She recently co-chaired the professionalism committee of the Mississippi Bar Association and as a key member of its nominating and diversity committees. Isaac has also served as a past president of the Junior League of Jackson, chairperson of the board of Goodwill Industries of Mississippi, and has previously served on the board of directors of the Mississippi Children’s Museum. Following her selection, Chief Judge Jordan noted the national scope of her law practice as well as her many civic and community leadership roles and stated: “LaKeysha is a nationally recognized litigator and a genuinely terrific person. We are thrilled to welcome her to the Court family.” A formal investiture ceremony will take place at a later date.
