Issaquah Law Group - Injury Litigation Attorneys

TRUST: Personal injuries are personal. Which is why the attorneys at ILG treat every client and every case differently. Because they are different, and extremely personal. ILG was founded on the principle that strong client relationships are the key to successful legal representation and strong relationships are built on trust. Trust that you will be heard. Trust that you will be protected. Trust that every effort will be made to see justice done in your case. The singular goal of every ILG attorney is to earn and preserve that trust.

EXPERIENCE: ILG attorneys have a broad base of litigation experience to draw on in all Federal and State courts from on-the-ground investigations to Supreme Court appeals and we bring this experience to bear on behalf of our clients in personal injury and wrongful death claims arising out of motor vehicle accidents, bus versus pedestrian accidents, defective and dangerous products, medical malpractice, slip/trip and fall accidents, and catastrophic losses due to fire.

LOCATION: We are located on the Eastside in Issaquah, convenient to Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Renton, Sammamish and North Bend. However, we provide legal services in King County, Pierce County, Snohomish County and throughout the entire state of Washington.

In addition, through The Amateur Law Professor Blog and LinkedIn postings, we share pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Supreme Court, as well as the pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Courts of Appeal so that our clients can be as update to date on cutting legal issues as we are.

PICS v. Seattle Public Schools and My Summer

Well, unfortunately the case came out exactly as planned down to the votes and the reasoning.  I have yet to read the opinion in full, that will probably come in the next week or two, as time permits.

In other news...being a summer law clerk is going great.  I have had the opportunity to work on a myriad of really great cases and do a lot of really good work.  So far I've done more settlement demands than I can count, learned how to read opthomolagical charts, fought the insurance companies (yes...we hate them at this firm), and learned a LOT about plaintiff personal injury and insurance bad faith in general. 

The highlight of course...the following exchange before a deposition of a client...a client who we will no way in hell be putting on the stand (names changed to protect...well my dignity):

Paralegal:  Good morning Jane, how are you doing?

Jane:  Where's the other attorney?  Shouldn't they be here by now?

Paralegal:  He called and said he would be fifteen minutes late.

Jane:  And when did you know this? 

Paralegal:  We found out about a half hour ago.

Jane:  I wish SOMEONE would have called me.  I could have stopped at McDonald's and gotten something more for breakfast!

(forward in time fifteen minutes)

Attorney:  Good morning, Jane.  How are you?

Jane:  I'm so mad!  I just want to punch you in the face right now!

(forward into the depo)

Attorney:  Now Jane, can you tell me what your typical day is like?

Jane:  I want to take the fifth amendment!

(forward further along into the depo)

Attorney:  Can you tell me about what happened with the accident?

Jane:  Oh sure!  In fact...I have some pictures if you want to see.  (proceeds to give opposing counsel a handful of pictures that she has pulled from her purse and which we have never seen).

Yes...everything that could go wrong absolutely did.  Its so fun to physically see the settlement numbers dropping before your eyes.
