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 Court of Appeals at Div. II: Free Crimes Factor May Be Considered By Trial Court Rather Than Jury

State v. McNeal

McNeal was resentenced under Blakely. On resentencing, the trial court impanelled a jury to hear evidence on free crimes. Under Free Crimes, a sentence may be placed outside the standard sentencing range if failing to do so would result in the offender essentially getting a free pass on one or more of his crimes. That's the best I can do with it, I'm a Plaintiff attorney. The only math I know is 1/3. (Well, that's not true, I actually do still know how to do a derivative in calculus. That's right, where f(x)=x^3, then d(x)=3x^2. I think that's the case. Its what some guy who looked like Gandalf told me online. Seriously, my calculus professor taught me online and looked like Gandalf. I trust a hippy wizard with my math over a scientist any day.). Because he's no longer teaching at Bellevue College, I instead give you an artist's rendering of what he may look like now.


Anyhow, the court of appeals concluded that the trial court, on remand, could consider free crimes without impanelling a jury, seeing as no facts need to be found. Its just math.
