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: Need to do a Motion to Suppress to Preserve Vehicle Search Issue

State v. Cross

As you recall, earlier we had a vehicle search issue come up. Here, there was no motion to suppress the gun. I'm still unclear on the timing here, but it sounds like this is the opposite of the previous, in that the area searched was exactly within the control. Center console which the driver dove for and a glove box in the control of the passenger that was heard shutting while the officer had the driver out of the car. So regardless of the fact that they didn't preserve the issue, it likely would have been the same result. We, of course, have virtually the same dissent as the last on the issue of waiver.

Conviction stands as do the enhancements (firearm of course).

For those of you wondering...I'm not going for the low-hanging fruit. That's why there's no David Cross picture up there. No, we here at The Amateur Law Professor keep things classy. That's why I now give you The Cross Gun!
