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.

Web Rumor Suicides: No Longer Just Affecting Kids

Its rare that a bit of news both surprises and shocks me, but this did. Evidently South Korea has one of the most active online communities, and, like one of my ex-girlfriends, they like to spend a fair majority of their time wallowing in the rumor mill and generally making people's lives a living hell. Unfortunately, this has led to many suicides. The article states that North Korea has one of the highest suicide rates in the world, whether there is a correlation to the online haranguing, they fail to say, but it certainly doesn't help.

The Internet claimed its latest victim yesterday, 39 year old Korean actress Choi Jin-sil, who hung herself over rampant rumors that she was responsible for the death of a friend, who had committed suicide earlier in the year. The rumors stated that she had lent cash strapped actor money, and that she was so relentless in her attempts to get it back, that it drove him to "gas himself."

Its very sad to me that people can be driven to this brink by the anonymous masses.

Please, if you feel like you might be near that brink, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
