ISSAQUAH LAW GROUP - PERSONAL INJURY LITIGATION LAWYERS

Issaquah Law Group - Personal 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.

Gotta Work It to Get Work.

Okay, like most of you, I had a hard time landing my first job. As luck would have it, there happened to be a spot opening up at the firm I summered for, and voila, I was lucky. When I was laid off, I had to hit the pavement, and I hit it hard.

What did I do? I talked to people. Any lawyer I knew, I explained my situation and asked them if they knew of anything that was opening. Within a couple days I had enough hits to take away the constant fear. Why should this be any different for a new lawyer? Career services always advises informational interviews, but they never tell you what one would look like. If it feels like you're asking 20 questions, then you're doing it wrong. The best times I had when pounding the pavement were just like talking with friends and colleagues. The whole point of this is you wanting the other person to pass on your information, even if they aren't personally hiring, because they think you'd be a good fit somewhere.

Anyhow, that's my two cents. Be yourself. If they don't like you, you won't be a good fit there anyway.

Now, because I've taken some flack from Jay (KIDDING), instead of reposting his article on tips for cold-calling firms, I'm going to let you jump on over to Above the Law and check it out. Honestly, this guy uses the word "douche" more than Summers Eve. This is also why I enjoy the writing.
