Issaquah Law Group: Experienced Counsel; Client Focus

PHILOSOPHY: Formed in 2014, Issaquah Law Group is a law firm with one focus: providing businesses and insurers with high quality legal representation with the responsiveness of a smaller firm. ILG was founded on the principle that strong client relationships are the key to successful legal representation and strong relationships are built upon clear and consistent communication. 

LITIGATION: We work closely with our clients to fully and accurately understand their goals, work collaboratively to formulate specific legal strategies, and execute the agreed plan of action utilizing methods most likely to result in the efficient and effective resolution of the matter. 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 in the areas of personal injury and wrongful death, product liability, commercial general liability, labor & employment, construction litigation, and catastrophic losses due to fire and explosion.

BUSINESS LAW: Rarely is the path from point A to point B a straight line, so our role in a business law practice is to find alternatives, devise workable strategies, and keep your business ideas, goals and objectives moving toward realization. ILG’s business attorneys help clients achieve their goals with respect to business formation, intellectual property, labor and employment, CAN-SPAM, copyright and trademark

COMMUNITY: In addition, the Lawyers at Issaquah Law Group remain active in the legal and civic community. A core commitment of our Issaquah Attorneys is community service. Our attorneys' civic involvement includes the King County Civil Rights Commission; the City of Issaquah Planning Policy Commission; the Northwest Screenwriters Guild, service as a pro tem judge. We live and work in the Pacific Northwest, and we aim to make it a better place.

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: Murder trial went A-ok

State v. Sublett

How do you do a headline for a murder trial with so many issues all affirmed? You don't.

Anyhow, a few meth-heads decided they were going to take advantage of a guy. They took his generators and pawned them. They had him wire money under false pretenses. They went to his trailer later and robbed him. They were found in Vegas with his parking permit, checks, and a whole slew of other things that generally people don't just hand you.

There is your usual slew of things: failure to sever the trials, etc. No error there because the defenses weren't inconsistent. At best, one was just more aggressive than the other, which doesn't amount to inconsistent.

The thing that struck me here was the prosecutor putting up a picture of one of the defendant's with the word guilty on it. Poor form, for sure. The court held it was not prejudicial error. Which, I can't really blame them for. This case is not borderline enough that the one instance of a sustained objection and the picture being removed would have done anything to sway the jury any less from sending them up the river.

But come on, a disabled parking permit?
