John Isaksen : Senior Associate – Lawyer


  • Bachelor of Arts
  • Bachelor of Laws
  • Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law

John Isaksen was admitted as a solicitor over 25 years ago and has practiced primarily in the fields of personal injury law and employment law ever since.

Prior to joining Adams & Partners Lawyers in 2006, John worked for the local branch of a regional NSW law firm for 20 years, focusing on the provision of comprehensive workplace and personal injury advice to clients from around the local area. His experience and expertise in the field mean that his advice has been sought in many high-profile cases over the years, including representing victims of the Glenbrook train disaster in 1999.

In addition to his work with individual clients, John also provides advice and representation to organisations, particularly in the field of workplace relations. He has represented numerous trade unions and their members since 1985 and has considerable experience negotiating Workplace Agreements as well as resolving a variety of employment disputes.

John enjoys helping clients through their issues and seeing them able to move on with their lives, often as a direct result of helping them to achieve compensation and their rights and entitlements. He works hard to keep up with the many changes to legislation, in what can be a very complex and challenging field of law, and takes pride in both his attention to detail and his professional approach to helping clients.
