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.

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.
