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.

WA Legal Roundup - Washington State Supreme Court

City of Seattle v. St. John

Bringing suit against St. John? Well that's just not very Christian! Turns out its not THE St. John, but merely A St. John. Robert St. John actually. Bob-O tried to argue that because he declined a BAC after he wrecked his hog (okay, it could have been a rice rocket, a Shriner's motorcycle, or even the Tron Lightcycle...I really have no basis for assuming it was a hog), that his refusal to take a BAC meant that they couldn't get a warrant to do the same.


(Tron Guy: Anxiously awaiting a Lightcyle since 1982)

The statute states that "[n]either consent nor this section precludes a police officer from obtaining a search warrant for a person's breath or blood."

As you can imagine, based on, you know...words, the court found that the officer could in fact still get a warrant. Bob-O's arguments of the statute violating due process and notions of equitable estoppel will be going up on later.
