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.

WA Legal Roundup - Div. I: New Wives can have undue influence too.

Estate of Havilant

So this one is pretty hilarious. I will frame it as a law school hypo. M&W were married and had four children. [Likely married in the 40's]. After 50 years of marriage, W dies. Years later [again, assumed (please Mr./Ms. Law Clerk...feed the details. I want to know what happened between the four children. I want to know that they were high school sweethearts and the love of his life died and he was lonely)] M is recouperating from a leg injury and meets a nursing assistant several years his junior. By several years his junior, I can only assume about 1/3 of his age. He pays for her school, gives her 300k, etc. etc.

Will changes, guess who gets the benefits. Well if there was a finding at the trial court of undue influence, it stands. There is no special exemption for wife. Let alone new 2nd wife 50 years the decedents junior.
