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.

Man loses worldly possessions as bank clears out his house by mistake

If there's one thing that absolutely gets me riled, its the automatons created by the conglomerations. What do I mean by that? Well say you have a bank. Say that bank decides to foreclose on a property. Say that they have the wrong address and don't bother to check. Say they clear out everything in the home and trash what they pull out.

Well that's exactly what happened to man in Tampa Bay. The man, Benito Santiago Sr. was on vacation and came home to a pretty startling scene.

"Everything was taken out of the property," he said. "I feel nervous. I'm not going back."

Now here's where it gets hard. They took a lifetime of memories from him. Every photograph, every letter, everything. They valued his possessions at $29,100. But the retired antiques dealer puts the value somewhere about $100,000. This, of course, doesn't include the value of those photographs, the hassle of going through this, and the message that needs to be sent to the banks that this kind of steamrolling over consumer rights is not okay.

HT to The Consumerist, and Ben Poken, who I will now read religiously after my girlfriend pointed me to this story.
