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.

When Dreams Go Weird

I just thought I'd share this rather odd dream of mine. I am NOT a morning person by any stretch of the imagination. This usually results in one alarm going off at 7:00, one at 7:24, and the final at 7:32. After that its a mad rush to get to work by my appointed start time of 8:30.

I know what you're thinking: "Justin, how on earth do you expect to be successful as an attorney if you're not waking up early?!" Easy, I stay late, usually until 7 or 8 at night, and I bring work home with me for a little light reading. I function much better as a night owl. I ramp up my brain in the morning hours with the blogging.

Anyhow, this morning found me taking my usual late morning 7:24-7:32 snooze when I had the following dream. I was talking with the partner to whom I'm assigned. Those of you that know him, know that he is a wine buff. Turns out (at least in the dream) this had more than a little to do with his success as a trial attorney.

You see, in my dream world, in order to settle cases, you had to pour a very nice bottle of wine into the drain if you were a plaintiff. I commented that it was a shame, and who would know if we just didn't pour it down the drain, instead emptying it into some other container. The partner commented that it would be a violation of the RPCs (Rules of Professional Conduct) to do otherwise, and he wasn't about to stake his reputation as a great trial lawyer on saving a bottle of wine.

Moral of the story? Always follow the RPCs, no need to get disbarred for doing something stupid.
