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

Townsend v. Quadrant Corp.

Several families purchased homes from Quadrant.  They were “forced” to sign purchase and sale agreements (PSAs) that contained an arbitration provision.  They claimed that they weren’t given the opportunity to review the PSA and that the arbitration clause was unconscionable. 

The Court of Appeals held that while arbitration clauses CAN be unconscionable, this case was not an example of either procedural or substantive unconscionability. 

The Court left to an arbitrator whether the various claims (some tort and some contractual) were viable in the aftermath of Alejandre v. Bull, 159 Wn.2d 674, 153 P.3d 868 (2007).  The Court determined that the tort claims (involving personal injury and damage to property) were outside of the contract and not governed by the PSA.  The contract claims, however, were governed by the arbitration clause.
