Isaac Silverman

Staff Attorney

Isaac is an environmental attorney and organizer with deep roots in the Sierra Nevada. He grew up in the Placer County Foothills where a childhood spent exploring the nearby rivers, forests, and mountains instilled a lasting appreciation for the unique beauty found in the range of light. A veteran of multiple environmental campaigns before joining Sierra Watch in 2014, Isaac worked as legal clerk for the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and Natural Resources Defense Council, as a consultant to the climate and air program at Environmental Defense Fund, and as an advocate and organizer at Environment America. He holds a degree in Environmental Analysis from Pomona College and a JD from UCLA School of Law.

Isaac’s work at Sierra Watch is supported by a Leadership Development Grant from Switzer Family Foundation.

When he is not working you’ll probably find him in the mountains, hiking, climbing, riding his bike, or snowboarding.
