About Us

AC Ishak Law LLC was founded by April C. Ishak, whose personal history and professional experience provide the basis for her desire to make exceptional legal representation affordable and accessible. The daughter of an entrepreneur and now a small business owner herself, Attorney Ishak has a keen interest in counseling her clients in a proactive way to achieve the best possible outcome.


Although no court outcomes can ever be guaranteed, if litigation cannot be avoided, the firm will advocate for the client professionally and with tenacity while continually evaluating the case progress and discussing case strategy with the client. Attorney Ishak's early training as a lawyer under a well-respected Wilmington Delaware corporate litigator has provided her with a sophisticated background not typically found in small town law firms.

Estate Planning

In a similar way, Attorney Ishak desires to assist families in addressing their estate planning options. Her personal experience with elderly or sick family members as well as clients gives her unique insights into factors to consider when making a will, or preparing an advance medical directive or power of attorney. The presence of certain illnesses or diseases can have a major impact on how these important decisions are made.

Mission Statement

A woman-owned business, AC Ishak Law LLC seeks to provide sophisticated, cost-effective legal representation to the residents of Havre de Grace and surrounding communities and to become their trusted, lifelong counselor by providing exceptional representation and customer service.

Practice Areas


Putting your estate matters in order is one of the best gifts you can give your loved ones. Our estate planning packages include wills, powers of attorney and advance medical directives as well as trusts.


It is hard enough dealing with the loss of a loved one and the thought of administering an estate while you are still mourning can be daunting. If you need assistance opening and administering an estate, our firm can prepare and file the required documents with the Register of Wills. We can also represent you in the Orphans Court if an estate dispute arises.


With more than 25 years of experience, AC Ishak Law can handle a variety of business law issues ranging from entity formation, contract review, employment law, non-profit applications, liquor license applications, and complex business litigation matters, as well as ongoing support as retained outside counsel.


As our population ages, many people find themselves facing issues of senior housing needs, long term care arrangements, and government benefit eligibility requirements. A new population called the “sandwich” generation finds itself caring for elderly parents while their own children are still in school. If you find yourself in this situation, our firm can work with you to find the best solutions.


The firm can provide legal representation to your municipality as either primary or special counsel at competitive rates. Municipal law practice includes preparation of legislation, attendance at meetings, litigation support, contract review, and land use and zoning, among other issues.
