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: 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?
