William P. Isele, an attorney with Archer P.C. in Princeton, N.J., recently received the Distinguished Service Award for 2013 from the Health Law Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association (NJSBA) in recognition of “invaluable contributions and countless achievements” that have enhanced the stature of the health law bar in New Jersey and beyond.
Mr. Isele received the award last month at the New Jersey Law Center in New Brunswick during a presentation by John Washlick, Chair of the Health Law Section, which keeps members informed of changes in laws and regulations affecting the provision of health care services through programs, conferences and publications.
The plaque presented to Mr. Isele reads:
“In recognition of his many years of outstanding service to the Section as Chair, as a committed member of the Board, and for his invaluable contributions and countless achievements, he has enhanced the stature of the Section and has elevated the prominence of the Health Law Bar. Through his public service as New Jersey’s Ombudsman for the Institutionalized Elderly, he labored to protect the State’s senior citizens from abuse and neglect. One of New Jersey’s pioneering health lawyers, universally recognized as the moral conscience of the State’s Health Law Bar, we admire him for the quality of his convictions. He has earned our highest regard.”
Mr. Isele practices health care and elder law. He represents a wide range of clients, from private individuals to individual and institutional health care providers to governmental and quasi-governmental entities. A recognized expert on issues of long-term care and elder abuse, he formerly served for eight years as New Jersey’s Ombudsman for the Institutionalized Elderly, in charge of the state agency that works to preserve and protect the health, safety, welfare and rights of New Jersey residents age 60 and older who live in long-term health care facilities.
