The Story of “The Hammer”

Darryl L. Isaacs is an attorney, author, and the owner of Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers and co-owner of Brain Trust Legal. Because of his presence on everything from billboards to Super Bowl commercials, he has become popularly known as “The Hammer.” Darryl founded the law firm with his father in 1993, and quickly built the firm into a highly successful and well-known practice as a trailblazer in legal advertising on TV in Kentucky, having appeared in well over 1,000 commercials.

How Tragedy Led to Inspiration

A devastating traffic accident in 2015 left Darryl with a broken neck, traumatic brain injury, and other severe injuries. Darryl persevered to get better, turning a setback into a positive growth experience. His long recovery process and legal battle helped him get back his quality of life, and it also helped him see the personal injury world from the same view as his clients. Because of his firsthand experience with accident recovery and traumatic brain injury, Darryl is one of the only lawyers who understands exactly what his clients are going through because he has been there himself.
