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.

Comedic Tidbit - Judge Finds Contempt for Xanax-Popping Tart (Pro-Tips for Pro Se Litigants)

This is actually quite hilarious. Judge Rodriguez-Chomat is dealing with a low-level offender, who is acting like Lindsey Lohan during her bail hearing/arraignment. The judge, of Hispanic descent, calls her back when she laughs, blows him off, and says "Adios". He bumps her bail. She then flips him off and tells him "Fuck you", to which she gets a 30 day sentence.

Now, what did we learn from this? ALWAYS, and I mean ALWAYS, be respectful to the Court. Too often I see both attorneys and lay people who do not treat the Court like a solemn institution. It kills me. If you are in court for a proceeding, dress your best, and dress conservatively. If all you own is a pair of khakis, wear them. If you don't have a white shirt and tie, find one. If you are female, wear a conservative skirt and blouse. Always address the court respectfully as "Your honor". Say "good morning" or "good afternoon". Explain to the court why you are there. NEVER interrupt the judge. 

These are just a few things that help the Court take you seriously. And yes, this goes for attorneys too, who I have seen violate this wayyyyyy too often. 

I know, I know, I said I'd be posting something substantive. This may be as close as we get :)
