Female “Sherlock Holmes”
Still practising law at 95
Adapted from The Vancouver Sun by Nancy Carson
People ask Constance Isherwood
when she will stop practising law.
She tells them, “Well, if you keep practising,
eventually you’ll get the hang of it.”
This Victoria lawyer, 95, still runs Holmes and Isherwood.
She and her husband Foster opened the firm in 1964.
A passion for the law
Isherwood loves the variety in her job.
“No two clients are alike,
no two cases are alike,” she remarked.
“And the clients themselves
are the greatest variety of them all.”
She enjoys going to court.
And she still has over 100 clients.
