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.

North Korea 'will not hit back'

So one thing that has always fascinated me is international diplomacy. For a while, I was (and still consider myself of this school, but haven't had the time to keep up on his writings) a big fan of Thomas P.M. Barnett. His writing on the socioeconomic gaps and how they define geopolitics are pretty on point. His theory is that our wham bam approach to military strikes only is half of the equation, that what needs to happen immediately after is nation building. The reason for that is these unstable countries don't fit into our superpower cold war paradigm. North Korea is one of those unstable countries on the rewritten military priorities map. The fact that they didn't retaliate is kind of big. It shows that, yes, they may be unhinged, but they also can show a little bit of restraint. This means there's a chance for diplomacy to work. Must wonder if its the new incoming regime.

North Korea 'will not hit back': "North Korea says it will not retaliate despite 'reckless provocation' from the South, which has held live-firing exercises near their maritime border."
