Issaquah Law Group - Personal 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.

Division I: Insane Beaver's Revoked Release A-OK

State v. Beaver

Beaver got out of a residential burglary charge…sort of…through an insanity plea. He was allowed a conditional release a few years later, which he violated. They revoked his release. However, he was never released completely from commitment. Thus, the State didn’t have to prove that he continued to be a threat in order to revoke his release:

Beaver's recommitment upon the revocation of conditional release is supported by adequate findings of mental illness and dangerousness. At the revocation hearing here, the trial court determined that Beaver violated release conditions and presented a danger to the community. And Beaver's insanity, as asserted by Beaver in his criminal proceeding and established by the trial court's original findings, was presumed to continue to exist. Given these findings, the State's action in recommitting Beaver was not arbitrary and his confinement is consistent with substantive due process demands.

Rather, Beaver had the same procedural safeguards as any one else committed for insanity, which is adequate for due process.
