ISSAQUAH LAW GROUP

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.

Division III: Strip Club Con Nets Bowling Alley Caper (Can't make this stuff up)

State v. Wilcoxon

Wilcoxon burgled a bowling alley. He didn’t hamburgle it, which is strictly reserved for McDonald’s. Now, this place had been the subject of other break ins. This is where the story gets awesome!

On that earlier occasion, a man wearing a black plastic bag over his body had entered the building after hours and cut the power to the building's surveillance system by throwing a breaker switch.2 The "popping" ofthe electricity awakened Eric Glasson, a man who frequented Lancer Lanes and did odd jobs at the establishment in exchange for food. He had fallen asleep while watching television with the lights on. Glasson fled the building when the lights went out. His flight alerted the "bagman" burglar that the building was occupied. The bagman also fled without taking any property.

Picture that. Man who does odd jobs for food falls asleep after hours watching TV, and probably shouldn’t still be there. Lights go out and he runs for it. His running for it startles a man wearing a trash bag, who also runs for it. WHY IS THERE NO VIDEO OF THIS!?

It gets better. Defendant (and presumed trash bag guy) invites odd-job food guy and other bowling alley employees to the strip club. He then takes off leaving them at the strip club and doesn’t come back. 

During that time, guess what bowling alley was robbed. How much? $29,074. 

Holy schneikies! How about you make a bank deposit! 

Anyhow, the rest of the case is just some stuff about not splitting the trials and evidence from one guy that he was on the phone with another guy during the robbery, and cell phone data showed that guy was talking to Wllcoxon, who was actually performing the robbery.

The case was affirmed.

Also, if some strange guy invites you to the strip club, be wary of his intentions.

While the lawyers at Issaquah Legal Services do not currently practice criminal law, we expect to add an Issaquah Attorney practicing in the area soon. In the meantime, please contact us for a referral to other qualified attorneys.
