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.

WA Legal Roundup - Div II: No renewal permit for Skagit Hill Recycling; instructions in burglary case were proper

Skagit Hill Recycling loses its permit after Division II overturns a superior court ruling overturning two hearing boards. Skagit Hill has a documented history of taking in things it shouldn't, and that evidently worked against them:

After the permit transfer, Health Department officials inspected the property on September 26, 2006.  The inspector noted asphaltic roofing waste, metal debris, concrete, tires, an old office trailer, and other construction and demolition waste.  The inspector took photographs of the site to document his observations.  The inspector told Ron Johnson, Skagit Hill's operations manager, that the roofing waste, the construction and demolition waste, the tires, and the old office trailer could not be accepted under the current permit.

Doesn't help that the renewal and the offenses all happened in the first year of operation.

In State v. Dow, a convict challenged the sufficiency of instructions, specifically one related to duress, which Defendant claimed he did not have the burden of proving. The law is that Defendant has to prove it by a preponderance. Defendant also instructed to no limiting instruction on prior convictions, but this wasn't objected to at trial and no instruction was requested. Can't get what you don't ask for.
