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.

The Amateur Law Professor Welcomes New Associate Professor

Those of you who have been following the blog know that the long-standing policy at The Amateur Law Professor has been to not blog land use decision. In the humble opinion of the Dean, land use attorneys are nerds. As such, they were called out as nerds and simply given a link to the opinion.

Simply put, these shenanigans, for the good of the legal community, need to stop.

As luck would have it, one of the foremost authorities (that I know, anyway) on Land Use in Washington State has graciously agreed to blog those opinions. He is well-founded in nerdocity, a stellar human being, and would often be confused with me before I had LASEK surgery.

May I present Associate Professor of Land Use - Ryan Carson:

Ryan graduated Magna Cum Laude from Seattle University School of Law in 2008. He served as a judicial clerk for the Honorable Susan Owens of the Washington State Supreme Court. During law School, Ryan served as Note and Comment Editor on the Seattle University Law Review, President of the Environmental Law Society, and comped in moot court. Ryan has also served as a judicial extern to the Honorable Tom Chambers, and worked during his third year of law school at Stritmatter Kessler Whelan Coluccio.
