He also assists clients in connection with regulatory investigations conducted by the Department of Justice, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, and U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

Isajiw served as judicial law clerk to the Honorable Yvette Kane, of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. He received his undergraduate degree from Villanova University and his J.D. from Temple University, James E. Beasley School of Law.
