About Us

In 1999, Richard J. Koehler, a longtime labor relations attorney and a former Commissioner of the New York City Department of Correction and New York City Police Department Chief of Personnel and Steven Isaacs, a veteran criminal defense litigator and labor and employment attorney, founded Koehler & Isaacs LLP a unique, full service law firm designed to meet the legal needs of working families, their unions and their employee benefit funds. Since then, we have proudly represented clients in various public and private sector industries including law enforcement, security, transportation, education and construction. Our philosophy is to provide the highest caliber of legal services in the most expedient and cost efficient manner possible. We always attempt to resolve disputes in a manner that serves the best interests of the client. If that is not possible, we do not hesitate to litigate and otherwise protect the rights of our clients.  Strategic solutions and innovative litigation are the hallmarks of our practice.  

In 2021, Koehler & Isaacs LLP evolved into Isaacs Devasia Castro & Wien LLP. While the name is different, our client focused philosophy and commitment to excellence in client service continues. In today’s extraordinarily challenging times and uncertain political and economic climates, it is more important than ever to ensure that workers, their families, labor organizations and employee benefit funds protect and expand their rights and benefits whether collectively bargained for or conferred by law. Isaacs Devasia Castro & Wien LLP is more than just a law firm. We are the problem solvers, crisis managers, risk assessors, conflict resolvers, litigation strategists, chief negotiators and trusted advisors that will help you and your families take on the legal issues you may face.
