I contacted the Ison Law Firm (the pilot lawyer) in July 2023 with concerns I had about obtaining my first class medical. I had read great reviews and scheduled a call. The phone call went well and Anthony Ison was able to answer all of my questions and explain how I would move forward. The first time I knew I made the right decision was when they helped me gather the medical records that I needed for my file with complete ease on my end. That alone was a big relief. Throughout the process, Anthony kept me informed and was easy to contact if I had any other questions while I waited. A year later I received my first class medical. For anyone considering if hiring the Ison Law Firm makes a difference, I believe it did and I would strongly recommend doing so. My only piece of advice is to trust the process because you are in good hands!

I probably don’t have all the words to express our gratitude. We had no idea we needed legal help until we became tangled in an FAA medical certification mess all because we were naive and didn’t realize the FAA stance on this particular medical issue for certification. We tried several other legal groups and were becoming very discouraged , until we stumbled in to Anthony’s website. After the first phone call, we knew we were in good hands. He is excellent. He is responsive, helpful, knowledgeable, well connected and very easy to talk to. We are a success story with a special issuance certification and we can give all the credit to Anthony. Thank you!!

Anthony was instrumental in helping me secure my medical certification after an initial denial. His professionalism and deep knowledge of the subject were evident throughout the process. Anthony’s experience and expertise were pretty evident after about the 3rd or 4th response he put together for me during the back and fourths with the FAA. There’s no way I could have obtained my medical successfully without his and his teams help and would highly recommend him to any pilot that needs help in the area. Thank you again : )

My experience with The Ison Law Firm has been exceptional. Their responsiveness was outstanding—often replying to my emails the same day, even over the weekend to accommodate a pending meeting on the following Monday. This was a welcome change from other firms where I've waited days for a response. Despite jurisdictional constraints limiting their ability to provide advice on certain aspects of my case, Anthony and his team provided clear guidance and promptly refunded my consultation fee. Their dedication to client service is commendable.

Highly Recommend any pilot who has some form of an aviation related and potential legal issue to consider this office. From the moment I reached out via email initially, Jenna, the receptionist was extremely expeditious in scheduling me an appointment to speak with Anthony Ison. Anthony was quick to get back to me and his availability had many options to choose from. He was very knowledgeable and has an excellent level of expertise in handling FAA hotline complaints. I had a sense that he really cared and wanted the best result for me. Thanks to following his advice to the T, the complaint was quickly closed. If I hadn’t interacted with him I can’t guarantee the results would have been the same. Anthony Ison is a gem of a lawyer who wants the best for each of us pilots, and such lawyers are still far and few between. Thank you.

The Ison Law Firm was outstanding in handling my Aviation needs! In particular I worked with Anthony and he handled everything for me including all FAA issues and personally coordinated all medical issues with my AME! He answered all emails, text, and calls in an extremely timely manner and literally took care of everything for me! The FAA uses attorneys to write letters to airmen and you need an attorney with the experience and knowledge to help you through the red tape! The Ison Law Firm was fantastic to deal with and ensured me it would not be and issue! And it wasn’t! Thanks a million!

The Ison Law Firm was an absolute pleasure to work with. Their knowledge of aviation law is unsurpassed, and their expertise will make dealing with the FAA a breeze. If your Airman Medical gets deferred or denied for ANY reason at all whatsoever, do not hesitate to call them. Anthony and his team will fight to make sure that you’re able to fly again. Additionally, when you hire Mr. Anthony Ison, it feels like you’re working with a close friend and not just any lawyer. Words simply cannot describe how great The Ison Law Firm is.

After contacting multiple aviation lawyers and most making me feel like just another client with a case number, in October 23 I reached out to the Ison Law Firm for a matter concerning FAA medical certificate eligibility. Mr. Anthony Ison eagerly took my case and treated me as an individual instead of a number. I was nervous with this being my first time ever contacting a lawyer for anything, and especially not even living in the same state. Inability to sit face to face with whom you’re paying an up front lawyers rate is an uncomfortable feeling. However, just as Anthony reassured and stood by my side throughout 7 stressful months of unknown, while preparing documents and waiting for answers from the FAA, I can reassure you he is well worth his rate. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field of law, was spot on with all advice he gave me and will go the extra mile to find information he may need confirmed. In conclusion, I am more than satisfied with the outcome of my case and will recommend to any and all that if they are in need of aviation representation, look no further than the Ison Law Firm.

Chris and Anthony are top tier when it comes to dealing with anything medical related. I came to them a year ago with a complex medical issue and was immediately comforted that everything would be ok and they would do their best to help me navigate the issue. I recommend that any aviator and or military veteran out there dealing with a medical issue consult with them. Yesterday I received my first class medical back again. There are a lot of different services out there involving medical related issues, but none of them can do what the Ison brothers do and I will stand by that. Their patience, honesty, and ability to navigate complex medical issues put them way above the competition.

World class experience I had using the Ison law firm. I won’t go into specifics with my case but I was greeted with confidence and honestly. Anthony represented me and he was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and honest. Anthony was very confident he could resolve my case quickly and get the outcome we both wanted. I was updated continuously by his staff and himself, it was always very streamlined and I never felt in the dark. Moral of the story, if you need representation in the aviation industry, this firm is no joke, they are a pleasure to work with. I hope I never need to use them again but if do need an aviation attorney, the Ison Law Firm will be the first call I make. 10/10

I am forever in debt to Mr. Ison! I had a fairly complicated medical denial case. Mr. Ison used his expertise to know exactly what to provide the FAA to make the best case possible to get my medical reinstated. To our surprise, the review process ended up taking YEARS, but Mr. Ison was always providing communication and updates as they came in and was always just a phone call away whenever I had questions. I was able to receive a first class medical! I am so happy with the outcome and would not be back in the cockpit without Mr. Ison. Thank you!

Mr. Ison worked as an advocate and facilitator and used his contacts at the FAA to allow me to know what I needed to do to free my medical and then followed through with communication as to those completed steps. I am flying again and grateful to The Pilot Lawyer.

I will not be able to properly express how lucky I am to have worked with Anthony Ison. Without his council, I believe my flying career would be over.Mr. Ison’s response to my inquiry was immediate. He instructed me on how to pursue my issue with my FAA medical and the response from the FAA came that very day.I had been battling the FAA for seven months on this issue. Needless to say, I was giving up hope. Without Attorney Ison, I’m not sure I would still be flying. I can’t thank him enough.

I had to deal with a correction of FAA medical records as many veterans have had to and some are still dealing with. Anthony's representation was worth every penny. Anthony and his firm are very diligent in their details, answering questions and engaging with the FAA. It would have been a very difficult ordeal do deal with if I had not hired his services for representation. It very well may have been the difference between losing my medical over missing information vs. covering all issues and keeping my aeromedical eligibility. I would highly recommend giving Anthony's office a call if you are unfortunate enough to have to deal with the FAA.

I hired Anthony to help me through an issue related to my medical and the name of his company describes exactly what he does- The Pilot Advocate. When I found out what the FAA wanted me to do to get my medical back after my accident it was overwhelming to say the least. Anthony not only helped me step by step but knew what doctors to see since my local doctors did not want to take on my case. Anthony is not only an amazing attorney but also a great human. He answered countless questions and guided me through the whole process, impressing me with his knowledge base at every juncture. If you are on the fence about hiring an attorney, this is your sign to hire Anthony. It was 100% worth the cost. I could not be happier with Anthony and the Ison law firm and the services they provided.

The Ison Law Group did an outstanding job on my case with the FAA. When I heard the FAA was going hard after veterans with VA disability ratings I knew I was in potentially serious trouble so I reached out to them to get ahead of the impending situation. When I was at my lowest the Ison brothers assured me that everything was going to be ok and I wouldn’t lose my medical or a day of flying. In the 6 months it took till my medical was due the Ison law group immediately went to work on my behalf and kept me up to date every step of the way. During my annual medical there were no issues and was out of the office with my class 1 medical no problems, this even after receiving one of the infamous FAA letters. I was so relieved that I used the Isons and got through this tough time flawlessly. 100% recommend the Ison Law group if you are dealing with the FAA.

I cannot speak highly enough of Anthony Ison, and the Ison Law Firm. I am and will forever be incredibly grateful to Anthony for the persistent, professional, committed way he approached, navigated, and executed my case. I had multiple complicating factors getting in the way of my application for a 1st class medical. Years ago, I remember Anthony spending 40 minutes on the phone with me for a free consult... I think that was three years ago now.After 2.5 years and MANY back and forths with the FAA, engagements with doctors, etc. I GOT MY MEDICAL. Obviously each case is different and nobody can promise anything when it comes to the FAA. I'm not selling magic beans here, but what I am saying is this:I believe Anthony is the best Pilot Lawyer one could hire. I would not have been able to get through this process without Anthony. He knows the FAR/AIM thoroughly, and he is highly familiar with the FAA, it's members, and it's workings. He is generous and is 100% worth the retainer, which was very resonable considering the amount of time he put into my case over the YEARS. I tell anyone and everyone who might have a struggle of a case with the FAA that they should call Anthony. He is a pilot himself, a family man, and a kind and intelligent human being. He works closely with an AME in FL who I also enjoyed working with. If you ever have *any* reason you might need help navigating the FAA's bureaucracy, do yourself a favor and Call The Ison Law Firm.Warm regards, and thank you Anthony.

Their process is transparent and straightforward. They never made me feel as though I was bothering them and I don’t know how many clients they have but you would have thought I was the only one by the way I was treated. Working with the Isons was a great experience and they’d be the first folks I’d call if I needed an aviation attorney.

If you think your FAA medical certificate application will be deferred, or possibly deferred, Anthony will give you an honest assessment of your situation. He knows the system, how the FAA operates and who to talk to. If you decide to hire him it would help to have your documents whether medical, court, etc. ready or in the process of acquiring them as it will speed things up. He was very optimistic in my situation even though I wasn't sure. I didn't trust the FAA but I had a very positive result.

After one call to The Ison Law Firm, it was clear that Anthony knew the complex FAA rules and regulations that applied to my situation and had the experience I was looking for. What truly sets Anthony apart is his remarkable talent for translating complicated FAA medical rules and regulations into clear, actionable steps. He communicated with precision and clarity, ensuring I understood the path forward and was kept informed at every stage. His patience in explaining the often-confusing FAA regulations was invaluable.Thanks to Anthony's unparalleled ability to navigate the intricate FAA policies, rules, and regulations, my FAA medical certificate was not only retained but secured with confidence. His tenacity and relentless pursuit of a favorable outcome ensured that I could continue pursuing my passion for aviation. If you ever find yourself needing FAA medical assistance, I wholeheartedly recommend The Ison Law Firm.

Anthony and his team worked quickly to resolve my issues with the FAA.

The money spent was saved by not being without a medical for months.

In 2008 I was denied a medical clearance from the FAA due to a misunderstanding regarding my criminal history. I fought with them for years before finally giving up, feeling defeated and hopelessly accepting that my passion for aviation would never be realized. I felt like the FAA just lumped me into a pool of denials and didn't care to examine the specifics of my situation or care to listen to my explanations. I felt like I was just a number. I had a few misdemeanor offenses from my early years that were not necessarily disqualifying, (Simple assault and family protection order. My Step father assaulted my mom so I handled it in the heat of the moment and my step dad pressed charges on me.)The FAA wanted me to pay thousands of dollars in psychiatric evaluations and travel expenses in order for them to evaluate me. Even then, there was no guarantee that my medical would be approved. So I gave up... feeling helpless and hopeless.Years later, in 2021, I decided to hire an attorney and rekindle my effort to pursue my dream of being a pilot. So I researched aviation attorneys that specialized in my area of need and I found Anthony Ison. His website claimed that he helped airmen through difficulty in obtaining their medical cards, So, I called him.Fast forward to today, I now have my medical certificate from the FAA.Anthony was honest with me, he never sugar coated anything, He was almost always reachable by phone and when he wasn't able to answer, he always returned my calls in a reasonable time. Most of the time within minutes. He made sure to keep the lines of communication open via phone, email and mail. He did ALL of the legwork with navigating the mess with the FAA and legal paperwork.He helped me stay positive when I was frustrated, he answered every question I had (even the dumb ones), and he treated me like a person and not like a cash cow like I've experienced with other attorneys in the past. We agreed in the beginning to a flat fee, and he went above and beyond to make sure he held up his end of the deal. He definitely did more than I expected considering how little he charged me. His fee was more than fair and definitely a fraction of what the FAA was expecting me to pay for just a psychological evaluation, nevermind the travel expenses that would have been involved with it.Anthony was unbelievably professional and efficient in every aspect of this arduous endeavor and I know I couldn't have done it without him. I've read reviews online that seem fake and made up... I hope this doesn't come off like those. I just can't say enough good about this guy. I felt heard, understood and I felt like he empathized with me and with my dream and took it upon himself to help me realize it and I've been boncing off the walls elated because of it.I can honestly say that if you are experiencing the issues with the FAA like I did, this would be the guy to call. His pricing was more than fair, no hidden expenses or fees and he didn't lie to me about my chances or the process involved. He is extremely knowledgeable in navigating the FAA bureaucracy and it showed. He is very friendly and never once did I feel like I was not heard or understood. He always took the time to help me understand every step and took the time to explain everything so I was never in the dark. He never made me feel stupid or annoying, even though I'm sure I was being annoying with how often I would call him sometimes. He understood I had questions and concerns and he did a fantastic job of taking time out of his day to help me through it. He was awesome.Anyway, I will stop rambling on, but if you're reading this because you are struggling with the FAA and obtaining your medical... You found the right person for the job. If it's possible, Anthony will let you know and then he will get it done for you.Thank you again Anthony, I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate all your hard work. You have a lifelong advocate in me and I am forever grateful to you. I couldn't have done it without you. THANK YOU!!!

I wasn't sure how things would work because we never met him in person since he lives in another state. But he exceeded our expectations! He was professional, responsive, and best of all we were ultimately successful. He knew the process well and held our hand every step of the way. I'm so glad we hired him. I give him my absolute highest recommendation. He couldn't have been better. We have no criticism at all. Anthony is awesome!

Mr. Ison was very professional and attentive to my needs regarding aviation legal help. He responded to phone calls and emails in a timely manner and made it very clear that he was available any time I had any questions. He has a very calm demeanor and is a logical thinker. If I ever need aviation-related legal advice in the future, I will be contacting him without question.

I had the privilege of working with Anthony and his team when I encountered a medical issue with the FAA. As an airline pilot, I opted for Anthony's services instead of the ALPA-provided services because of their expertise in navigating the complex FAA process. Throughout the entire process, Anthony and his team provided prompt and helpful communication, making the entire experience a breeze. I highly recommend their services to anyone seeking guidance and expertise in navigating the FAA process.

The FAA is a huge and complex organisation. Communicating with them without intimate knowledge how they work is very difficult and slow. It helps tremendously to have someone at your side, who understands the legal issues and the processes. In my case, we found out, when Anthony requested to see the FAA files on me, that the real issue was language, not medical. The FAA medical division wrongly understood a common Latin medical term used in Europe, and drew some wrong conclusions. Without seeing the files, we would not have been able to correct that mistake easily. The medical issues were resolved in the end, and I am on my way to the PPL. Without competent legal help, I might not have reached this point.

Mr. Ison understood my unique concerns and was very helpful in developing the best course of action and explaining it in detail to my satisfaction. His willingness to adapt to my several changes was a great help and eased any anxieties I may have had. The fact that he is a fellow Christian and not ashamed to let others know, is what sold me to doing business with him. It’s clear that he has God is his business. Thank you and God’s blessings to you and your firm.

I attended a blog on a Friday to find out I was in error on my FAA medical. I contact Mr. Ison on Tuesday after the holiday and by Friday, he was contacting the FAA with my new package. Any and all questions /requests were answered within a day. If the FAA moved as fast as the Ison Law Firm, there would be a lot of happyu pilots in the US.

I called the office to ask a couple questions so I would have a better idea on how to approach my situation. The receptionist answered and I explained that I was needing to get some advice from an attorney. She placed me on hold and then Mr. Ison answered the phone. He was very nice and answered my questions without speaking over my head. Im so thankful he took the time to speak with me. His few minutes helped save me from years of regret. Thank you very much for your time Mr. Ison. It was very much appreciated.

As a professional pilot, flying is my livelihood for myself and my family. I recently encountered an erroneous issue with the TSA that grounded me as a professional pilot. I did some research and I hired the Ison law firm to represent me. Anthony and his brother wasted no time and came to my defense. In just a few short weeks they had everything handled and told the TSA where they could shove it! I got my flight status back with minimal delay and back to work I went!These two literally saved my career. I am forever grateful to them and they took things personally. It wasn’t just all about the money and they also worked with my employer and their counsel to make sure everything went smoothly.I can’t say thank you enough…. These guys are the real deal!!!

Anthony and his team provided outstanding legal services and advice at every step of the process. He and his team recently helped me navigate an aeromedical issue. The problem was solved quickly with zero impact to my flight physical. I will absolutely seek their support if needed in the future. Ison Law Firm has my highest possible recommendation for aviators needing legal services or advice.

Highly recommend The Ison Law Firm! I was made aware of an issue that could have had major repercussions to my medical after reading an article authored by Anthony and published in a recent AOPA Pilot Protection Services newsletter. I immediately contacted Anthony and was pleasantly surprised that he contacted me right away. He walked me through the process of drafting up a letter along with supporting documentation to send to the FAA. After responding to a request for additional documentation and explanation from the FAA my issue was successfully resolved without further action. Anthony and brother/law partner Christopher are now on speed dial if I ever need such services in future!

I contacted Anthony last summer with a legal issue that made acquiring my medical license more difficult. He was able to quickly help me out, helped me fill out all the FAA paperwork, and fought for my case the whole way. I owe a serious debt of gratitude to Anthony and everyone at Ison Law Firm for helping me start my dreams of becoming a commercial pilot. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal assistance for their aviation needs!! Thank you again Anthony!!

There's a reason that the Ison Law Firm has a 5 star rating.Anthony and his team are great at what they do, and were able to help get me a positive outcome while working with the FAA. From the initial consult onward, it was clear that Anthony has a huge wealth of knowledge in this area of law. Even though the FAA can be slow to respond due to processing delays, Anthony was very professional and gave me regular updates to keep me appraised of the current status. Thank you!

I first contacted the Ison Law Firm in January 2017. I had a very difficult case and Anthony has been by my side this entire time working hard for me. He got in touch with FAA multiple times to keep the process rolling and got me in touch with medical professionals that worked for me and my case. After 5 long years and a lot of hard work I was able to get my First Class Medical back. I would highly recommend Anthony to anyone needing help with their aviation related issues. Thanks again Anthony!

A few months ago I faced an issue with the FAA in regards to my medical certification, I called Anthony Ison and he quickly got to work on my case. Anthony is truly the greatest lawyer I ever spoke to, he has immense knowledge on the whole process and fought for me vigorously while also keeping me informed throughout. His fee is very fair, and if anything I underpaid for his expertise. I truly don’t know what I would’ve done if I didn’t have Anthony. I hope I never again have an issue requiring his assistance, but if I do, I know Mr. Ison’s law firm will always be there.If you need a lawyer in dealing with the FAA, The Ison Law Firm is likely the best in the country.

I spent 3 months searching for a Lawyer to help me with a medical certificate correction, mentioning any issue regarding medical certification to any pilot will cause stress and on top of that the added stress of finding the right Lawyer. Anthony is the right Lawyer , after contacting him in May of 2022 he knew exactly what to do ,he walked me through what needed to be done step by step. 3 months later i got news that all my Medical issues were resolved this was the exact outcome that Anthony explained from the beginning. Don’t hesitate to give them a call!!!!

I had a wonderful experience working with Anthony and the Ison Law Firm for my aviation needs, and they exceeded my expectations. Working with Anthony's firm allowed me to focus on life and work, while Anthony and his team tackled all of the requests from the FAA and handled the entire process. Picking his firm to handle this was the best decision I could have ever made as a pilot. I highly recommend any pilot that has aviation legal questions / or anything to do with medical certifications and deferrals, to get in touch with Anthony and his team ASAP...they will guide you, help you, educate you, and work for you, so that you can focus on life and not be interrupted. Thank You Anthony and your team at The Ison Law Firm for all you did for me and your new friendship. I would refer you to anyone looking for assistance in the aviation world.

I contacted Anthony in October of 2021 with an FAA medical certificate issue. I had made a documentation error and had a previous medical misdiagnosis that I didn't feel comfortable trying to correct on my own while maintaining my current medical. Anthony returned my initial phone call quickly and was able to put my mind at ease that we could wade through the paperwork and FAA process to get things corrected.He began working on my issue right away and made a plan to gather the required documentation needed to resolve my case. Anthony was very responsive all along the way with my questions and he was the primary interface between me, my primary physician and the FAA. Anthony handled getting extensions and other tasks to keep me flying while we were getting all of the documentation organized.After 8 months of work we received a positive outcome and were able to successfully close my case. Anthony will work for you. I would highly recommend him for any aviation legal matters!
