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 II: Recision for Improper Subdivision Not Available After Subdivision Made Proper

Hoggatt v. Flores

So Flores bought some property. He then found out that it had been improperly subdivided. Now, there’s a statute that says you have a right to recision of the transaction if that’s the case - RCW 58.17.210. Flores didn’t seek recision. Hoggatt then brought the property into compliance. 

THEN Flores sought recision. But see, now the statute doesn’t apply. 

Flores contends that he is entitled to rescission under RCW 58.17.210 because a statutory violation " triggers" the right to exercise rescission, and nothing in the statute precludes a purchaser' s exercise of that right after the fact. We hold that Flores' s argument fails because the Hoggatts brought the property into compliance before Flores unequivocally sought rescission. Accordingly, Flores was not entitled to rescission as a matter of law because the statute' s plain language established that rescission is only available to a purchaser as a remedy for noncompliance. 

Which, if you think about it, makes sense. The remedy is there to fix something, to right a wrong. If there’s no wrong to right, there’s no point in the remedy anymore.
