On Thursday, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette announced the retirement of Chief Deputy Attorney General Carol Isaacs.

Isaacs has served as the Chief Deputy Attorney General since Schuette was elected in 2010, and served under previous Attorney General Mike Cox.

She also was an advisor and counsel to the Michigan Senate and the Executive Branch as advisor to Gov. Engler and Senior Deputy of Legal Affairs and Policy Development for the Michigan Department of Community Health.

Isaacs graduated from Michigan State University and the Thomas M. Cooley Law School.

In a statement, Schuette said: “Carol's keen understanding of state government and the intricacies of the Michigan Legislature made her the ideal choice as Chief Deputy Attorney General during my service as Attorney General. Each and every day Carol Isaacs has been "On Duty" for the citizens of Michigan. Carol has been a tireless worker and a consummate professional as Chief Deputy Attorney General. Carol's husband Fred and her children and grandchildren will be the beneficiaries of her new journey. She is a dear friend.  Both Cynthia and I will miss her very much. I am certain that everyone in the Department of Attorney General will miss her and her leadership as well.”
