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

Stevens Trial: Judge Excludes Prosecution Evidence Known to be False

The prosecution in the trial of Senator Stevens took a sever blow when Judge Sullivan excluded categorical evidence because the evidence contained known falsities. The prosecution had sought to introduce billing records regarding the house. The problem?: Almost $20,000 in billings from Veco were from a worker who wasn't even in Alaska at the time the work was supposedly performed. The Prosecution was aware that the billing records were false, but presented them anyhow.

Not that it was all a bad day for the prosecution. The defense, in rebutting allegations that a Land Rover given to Senator Stevens cost less than the $44,000 , attempted to suggest that the cost of the Land Rover was worth less than that, was promptly spanked when the prosecution confronted the purchaser of the Land Rover with the check he wrote for the vehicle.

The amount of the check: $44,300.

The prosecution here is making a LOT of mistakes, which seem to be jeopardizing the conviction's chance on appeal. This is looking more and more like something that will be overturned on appeal and be forced to a retrial.
