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.

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.
