PHILOSOPHY: Formed in 2014, Issaquah Law Group is a law firm with one focus: providing businesses and insurers with high quality legal representation with the responsiveness of a smaller firm. ILG was founded on the principle that strong client relationships are the key to successful legal representation and strong relationships are built upon clear and consistent communication. 

LITIGATION: We work closely with our clients to fully and accurately understand their goals, work collaboratively to formulate specific legal strategies, and execute the agreed plan of action utilizing methods most likely to result in the efficient and effective resolution of the matter. 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 in the areas of personal injury and wrongful death, product liability, commercial general liability, labor & employment, construction litigation, and catastrophic losses due to fire and explosion.

BUSINESS LAW: Rarely is the path from point A to point B a straight line, so our role in a business law practice is to find alternatives, devise workable strategies, and keep your business ideas, goals and objectives moving toward realization. ILG’s business attorneys help clients achieve their goals with respect to business formation, intellectual property, labor and employment, CAN-SPAM, copyright and trademark

COMMUNITY: In addition, the Lawyers at Issaquah Law Group remain active in the legal and civic community. A core commitment of our Issaquah Attorneys is community service. Our attorneys' civic involvement includes the King County Civil Rights Commission; the City of Issaquah Planning Policy Commission; the Northwest Screenwriters Guild, service as a pro tem judge. We live and work in the Pacific Northwest, and we aim to make it a better place.

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.

Color-Coded Hospital Bracelets - NY Has the Right Idea

One of the things Plaintiffs attorneys tend to get a bad rap for is the outdated notion that we are ambulance chasing money hungry fools. That is simply not the case. Like any attorney, when evaluating a case accepted on a contingent basis, we look to the risk of losing a case in relation to the cost of bringing it.

One thing people don't generally know is that we also look to the chance of remedying a problem. Every day we see problems that would have been extremely simply to fix, and yet result in death or serious injury to our clients. Some of them are complex, like the issue of cable barriers. Some are simple, like a warning label that could prevent a family from dying of carbon monoxide poisoning.

New York City hospitals are taking a big step in the keep it simple stupid process of saving lives by employing color coded bracelets for its patients. Red denotes an allergy, yellow denotes a fall risk, purple denotes "Do Not Rescuscitate", and blue denotes that the patient does not want a blood transfusion. Its simple and it will save lives.

I just wonder how long it will take for this to catch on with other hospitals.
