I grew up in Lewiston and was thrilled to have the opportunity to return to work and raise my family here.  The people in our community are always friendly and look after one another, and this is truly reflected at Isaacson & Raymond, as everyone, from our attorneys to our dedicated team of office staff members, really cares about each and every one of our clients.

I, along with my lending team, have used Ronald Bissonnette of Isaacson & Raymond, P.A. to represent the bank on several commercial deals ranging from the simple real estate transaction to the complex asset acquisitions with agency guarantees and subordinate lenders. Ron and his team are always responsive and provide their insight on how to protect the bank’s interest but also make the deal work for everyone. I am very happy with our working relationship with Ron Bissonnette and Isaacson & Raymond, P.A.
