Issaquah Law Group: Experienced Counsel; Client Focus

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.

No Admission to Bar Due to Debt

In what is seen as an unusual case, panel of appellate judges in New York has rejected the admission of a potential member who passed the bar over...wait for it...debt. The student, who took the better part of a decade off for post-accident rehabilitation (relearning to walk, no big deal), and then got his LLM from an English school, ended his legal education with $230K of debt. It ballooned to $400k in over four years. He hadn't made payments on it due to a dispute with Fannie Mae over what he owes. When debt collectors picked up the loan, the loan picked up 25%, then one debt collector transfered to another, another 25%. The judges held that he was unfit to practice law. This same group that has overlooked solicitation of a minor for immoral purposes and other heinous crimes, will evidently let in chimos (child molesters) but not people with debt.

Gotta love it. They want you to repay the loans, but won't let you actually work to do so. In this economy, expect to see a lot more people getting their license revoked for non-payment if New York has its way.
