Issaquah Law Group - Personal 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 Supreme Court: Enhancements not DJ; Expert OK

State v. Aguirre

One of the hardest things to blog about are cases where really no new law is made. In this case, the court held the following:

  1. The prosecutions expert was hunky dory;
  2. Some testimony by the defense was properly excluded;
  3. Cross-exam was properly limited because the rape-shield law still exists;
  4. The Court's instruction on "unlawful force" was proper;
  5. Refusing to continue sentencing isn't an abuse of discretion, because, while you're entitled to counsel, picking a particular counsel has limites;
  6. Sentencing enhancements are not a violation of double jeopardy laws.

All in all, rather boring, as far as the law is concerned.
