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.

Division I - Read this if You're in Telco (And a Blurb on Law Clerks)

Pub. Util. Dist. No. 2 of Pac. County v. Comcast of Wash. et al.

This whole case has to do with interpretation of pole attachment fee’s by public utility districts. The state amended a controlling statute, the district interpreted it in a way which would cost the telco companies more moolah. The telco companies refused to pay.

Anyhow, I won’t be blogging about this one. If you work in Telco - specifically in siting equipment, you should probably give this opinion a read (or have your legal department do the same).

This brings me to my next point. God Bless Law Clerks. You see, I get the choice as to whether I blog all opinions, some opinions, or just the ones I find extremely interesting. In this case, knowing I will likely never deal with computed fee rates for siting equipment on telephone poles, I can file this away in the file. 

However, there are people that need to know these things. These are burning questions for them.

Our law clerks are woefully underpaid government employees. Many of them are fresh-faced law school grads. Some of them are seasoned veterans. However, they all have one thing in common. They write the preheating statements and opinions for the cases which they are assigned. The case may be something immensely interesting. It may involve gut-wrenching issues such as the final step of sending someone to prison for life or terminating parental rights. It may involve tough to read issues involving sex offenders. It may be, as is the case here, boring old telecommunications issues.

And each one is treated with the same in depth research and thorough detailed analysis. 

Great job!
