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.

Court of Appeals: Div. I: Purposeful Availment Still the Standard for Personal Jurisdiction

Freestone Capital Partners, LP v. MKA Real Estate Opportunity Fund, I, LLC

This case arose out of a declaratory judgment action brought by a group of lenders in Washington to enforce remedies arising out of the $30 million dollar delinquency of a group of California borrowers.

The issues in this appeal involved: 1. Whether a Washington court had personal jurisdiction over the California borrowers, 2. What state’s law governed the dispute, and 3. Whether the parties were entitled to attorneys fees and costs.

The Court of Appeals determined that because MKA had purposefully availed itself of the privileges of transacting business in the State of Washington, Washington courts had personal jurisdiction over MKA.

The Court of Appeals held that there was not a sufficient record to determine whether there was an actual conflict between Washington and California law and remanded the case to the trial court to make this determination

The Court of Appeals determined that the trial court did not err in awarding some attorney fees to Freestone, but left to the trial court the determination of what additional fees might be appropriate on remand.
