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.

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.
