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.

Chainsaw Self Defense?

So a post just came down on the Seattle Times' website laying out the chainsaw murderer's explanation for why he went all chainsaw murdery: self defense.

No, really, it was for my own protection!

Anyhow, the "victim" claims his landlord came at him with a roofing stake. Lest you think its something innocuous, please be aware that its really something the reaper would carry on his days off:

(Reaper Roofer Tools)

So what do you do when someone attacks you with one of those things? Hit him with a baseball bat.

That actually sounds kind of reasonable. However, it was the chopping off the guys head with a chainsaw after he hit him with a baseball bat that may have been a little over the top. You have to put down the bat, go find the chainsaw, start it up, chop through the head. There's a few too many steps in there to claim it was a reasonable reaction to the initial attack.

Well played though, gutsy self defense move!
