ISSAQUAH LAW GROUP   PERSONAL INJURY LITIGATION LAWYERS

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WA Legal Roundup - Div. 1: Penetration is more than contact; no registration of offender under repealed statute; justiciability sucks; immunex and surety go to blows; corps need attorneys

As an aside, I'm trying to play catch up here and blog during the WSAJ convention during lulls. By lull, I don't mean that I thought your topic was boring; it's that it didn't wholly apply to me so I waas only listening out of one ear. Anyhow, as I am on the iPad and don't know HTML, formatting will be...sparse State v. Weaville: Penetration means more than contact between the genitalia, and Weaville's rape conviction is overturned because of a jury instruction that tried to equate the two.

State v. Taylor: Taylor was convicted of stat rape in the 3rd, which was a felony. The statue was repealed. He was convicted of failing to register. The registration statute says that the registration is only for conviction of crimes defined as felonies under the sea. Because this statute was repealed, its no longer a felony sex offense and the is no longer a need to register. Time for some rewording perhaps.

Pasados Safe Haven v. Dep't of Agriculture: So when you aren't really seeking for a statute to be declared unconstitutional in the judgment, you can't get an advisory opinion on that. Blah blah blah justiciability. Read this if you have to get a statute taken out on something other than a summary judgment.

Nat'l Surety Corp. v. Immunex Corp.: trial court said Surety didn't have to defend on some claims, but they had to pay costs until the court made that ruling. Honestly, I don't care about the opinion, so have fun reading it.

Finally, in Cottringer v. Employment Security Dep't, Cottringer attempted to represent his corporation pro se. As we learned earlier, corporations need attorneys. If you want the benefits of a corporation, you have to bear the burden. That means hiring an attorney.
