ISSAQUAH LAW GROUP   PERSONAL INJURY LITIGATION LAWYERS

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.

Washington Legal Roundup – Division I

Bushong v. Wisbach

Edmund Wilsbach and Vicky Bushong divorced in Connecticut in 1984.  The divorce decree required Edmund to maintain an insurance policy naming Bushong as the beneficiary.

Mr. Wilsbach let the policy lapse, got remarried and named his new wife as the beneficiary.  Mr. Wilsbach died.  Ms. Bushong tried to sue the estate for the money she believed she was owed under the 1984 decree.  Her case was dismissed and attorney fees were awarded against her.

Ms. Bushong did not appeal the dismissal within 30 days, but did appeal the award of attorney fees.  Because the underlying basis for the award of attorney fees was not timely appealed, the Court of Appeals found the appeal untimely, dismissed the action and awarded attorney fees on appeal.
