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.

WA Legal Roundup - Rollins v. King County Metro Edition

(Henry Lawrence Garfield, A.K.A. Henry Rollins)

Very rarely do I blog about anything less than an actual decision. However, the Washington Supreme Court denied review of Rollins v. King County Metro. Under Tegman, the Washington Supreme Court held that damages in a case be apportioned severally against the intentional and the negligent tort feasors (as opposed to jointly and severally). Some briefing has been able to get around the issue, showing the inability of Tegman to address the issue when the negligence of one party essentially led to the intentional act of another even occurring. However, the fight on that issue is always a tough one.

Under Rollins, if you only plead the negligence of one party, and don't plead the intentional misconduct of another, Tegman doesn't even come in to play, and any instruction on Tegman is in error.

Not that I'm biased towards Plaintiff's Lawyers...but SUCK IT DTLA!

("Suck it, Trebek")

Okay, maybe that was a bit rough, I have friends in DTLA, they are good people. But that doesn't make me any less happy about this order denying review! ;) But in all seriousness. This denial of review really does help people that are harmed by negligence and corrects what I've seen as an injustice in the law under Tegman.
