Alan L. Isaacman (born July 12, 1942 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) is an American lawyer primarily famous for serving as attorney for publisher Larry Flynt. His past clients also include Geraldo Rivera, Kathy Griffin, Rock Hudson and CBS, Inc. He lives in Beverly Hills, California.


Educational History

Isaacman went to Pennsylvania State University (earning a Bachelor of Science in 1964) and Harvard Law School (earning a J.D. in 1967). In 1968, he was admitted to the California State Bar. He also served as a Law Clerk to U.S. District Judge Harry Pregerson, Central District, California from 1969-1970.

Professional career

In 1988, he argued the case Hustler Magazine v. Falwell before the Supreme Court of the United States.

A character partially based on (and named for) Isaacman was played by actor Edward Norton in the 1996 movie The People vs. Larry Flynt. Some details of Norton's portrayal (including being wounded during an assassination attempt on Flynt) actually occurred to another Flynt attorney, Gene Reeves, Jr.
