Welcome to Ison Law
Professionalism, Responsiveness, Kindness, and Courtesy … are just a few words used to describe the team with Ison Law. Based in Central Ohio, Dave and his colleagues work with clients throughout the State of Ohio and other locations.
We are also honored to have received Top Lawyer by CEO Magazine & Martindale Hubble Peer Review AV Rated for Highest Level of Professional Excellence for over five consecutive years, 2016-2021. We also hold a 4.9/5.0 Peer Rating for High Ethical Standards.
Meet Dave Ison
Dave has provided customized, personal, and business legal services for over three decades. Whether you are estate planning, business planning, or wealth building and maintenance, you can feel confident knowing your concerns will be addressed by someone who has “been there and done that” successfully for many others on many different occasions.
As a graduate of The Ohio State University and Capital University Law School, Dave was sworn into the bar in the State of Ohio, and all federal courts in Ohio, including the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. In the mid-1980s, Dave focused mainly on litigation, both defense and plaintiff work. However, his primary focus shifted toward personal and business planning in the mid-1990s. While still engaged in both plaintiff and defense business litigation, the practice expanded its focus in the areas of personal estate and business planning and protection and assisting in client’s wealth building and management.
When Dave isn’t working, he enjoys planning and preparing food; anything from a Thanksgiving Feast for 20+ people to grabbing ingredients on the fly from the pantry and fridge to create a fast dinner. Dave and his wife, Julie, of 37 years, raised their four children in Powell, Ohio. The couple loves escaping to Disney World in Florida and spending time with their children, grandchildren, friends, and puppies!
Barb joined the firm in the late 1990s as Dave’s “right hand” and has been a vital part of the Ison team ever since. As the first point of contact with our firm, Barb understands the importance of establishing genuine relationships, ensuring a smooth flow of communication, and contributing each day to the firm’s mission. She also assists in gathering information from our clients, facilitating client review meetings, document preparation, and maintaining our clients’ physical and digital files.
A people person with a penchant for making those around her smile, Barb has more than 30 years of experience in customer service and support. She enjoys getting to know clients and working closely with the team at Ison Law. Barb believes that client service is the backbone of every successful organization.
Barb enjoys sewing, reading, cookouts, spending time with family, friends, and her dogs outside of work. She also loves to vacation anywhere that is warm and with family and friends.
Meet Grant Ison
Grant is the newest member of the Ison team. As an attorney, he will provide guidance and counsel clients in the same legal fields that focus on Ison Law.
Grant earned his Bachelor of Arts in 2011 from Miami University. He then studied law and earned his J.D. at the University of Cincinnati in 2019. Grant was sworn into the Ohio Bar Association in November of 2019. He is also a member of the Ohio State and Columbus Bar Associations.
Grant is honored to be part of his dad’s successful firm and provide excellent legal advice and service to clients throughout Ohio and elsewhere. “It’s a big honor to be joining Dad’s firm,” said Grant. “I want to learn from him and build the skill set that I’ll need to take over the family business in the future and continue serving our clients with the highest level of professional excellence.”
In his private life, Grant is a huge sports fan. He has been the commissioner of the same fantasy football league since 2003 – and you’ll always find him watching the NFL and other major sporting events throughout the year.
Meet Ziva and Gibbs
Ziva and Gibbs, brother and sister, joined the team in the summer of 2012. Though only a few months old at the time, they quickly found their favorite office locations to snuggle up for a nap. Ziva and Gibbs take their work very seriously and will always be happy to greet you at the door when you visit!
