Meet The Pilot Lawyer
Anthony G. Ison is an aviation attorney born and raised in Lakeland, Florida, which consequently is home to the annual Sun ‘n Fun International Fly-in and Expo. Anthony has been a licensed airman since he was 17 years old and has recently been working on obtaining his rotorcraft endorsement. His nearly lifelong infatuation with aviation has culminated in a dedication to assist those within the aviation community and foster a better outreach to those who aren’t. In that, Anthony represents pilots, mechanics, aviation businesses, air traffic controllers, airports, passengers, drone operators and the like before the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Transportation Safety Board, and in a multitude of other settings. Beyond that, however, Anthony is honored to represent victims and their families in aviation accident litigation.
Anthony graduated from Florida Southern College where he studied English, with a concentration in Writing. For three years during his time at Florida Southern College, Anthony was the president of Sigma Tau Delta, an English honors society. Anthony earned his Law Degree from Stetson University College of Law, where he focused on studying administrative law and those areas pertinent to superior representation of airmen.
Anthony serves as an AOPA Legal Services Panel Attorney and is an active member of the Lawyer-Pilots Bar Association. Anthony holds an “of counsel” position with two other aviation law firms, where he contributes his experience and knowledge to fellow aviation attorneys and their clients. Furthermore, Anthony has had the opportunity to conduct extensive research on issues related to the Federal Aviation Regulations, as well as spaceport integration and commercial drone laws. Anthony has contributed to numerous research studies regarding commercial drone laws and aviation law.
Affectionately known as “The Pilot Lawyer” due to the fact that he is both a pilot and a lawyer, Anthony founded The Ison Law Firm under the belief that the firm would be a blessing to an airman or passenger during their time of need. To this day, Anthony runs the firm with a Christian mindset and has promised to always treat clients and opponents with respect and to pursue their claims or defenses with the utmost diligence.
Outside the practice of law, Anthony is happily married to his wife, Emily, and is a proud father to their son, Atticus. Anthony and his family enjoy flying, traveling, spending time with family, and participating in church activities.
