ISSAQUAH LAW GROUP   PERSONAL INJURY LITIGATION LAWYERS

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.

I will never complain about jury instructions again!

I don't know what my favorite part of this jury instruction is (circa 1869). Scratch that...I do know. "Breachiness"! It kind of has a ring to it, like truthiness. New goal in life: Use breachiness in a pleading. The post from Say What?! below.

 

 

September 2000 - The Model Jury Charge: "Senior District Judge Derwood Johnson of Waco, sent me this marvelous (!!) jury charge as reported in 'the Jan. 2, 1869 issue of the Cleburne (Texas) Chronicle.'

If the jury believe from the evidence that the plaintiff and defendant were partners in the grocery, and that the plaintiff bought out the defendant and gave him his note for the interest, and defendant paid for the note by delivering to the plaintiff a cow, which he warranted not breachy, and the warranty was broken by reason of the breachiness of the cow, and he drove the cow back and tendered her to the defendant, but he refused to receive her, and plaintiff took her home again and put a heavy yoke on her to prevent her from jumping fences, and by reason of the yoke she broke her neck and died; and if the jury further believe that the defendant's interest in the grocery was worth anything and the plaintiff's note worthless and the cow good for nothing either for beef or milk, then the jury must find out themselves how they will decide the case; for the court if she understands herself - and she thanks she does - don't know how such a case should be decided.

"
