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WA Legal Roundup - Div. 1: Penetration is more than contact; no registration of offender under repealed statute; justiciability sucks; immunex and surety go to blows; corps need attorneys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