More than just legal advice…

Whether you are located in the Tri-Cities, Kennewick, Richland, Pasco, or anywhere in Washington, I am committed to being a partner in the success of your business.

For the past 8 years, I’ve had the privilege of serving as a trusted advisor to dozens of local businesses, counseling them throughout their life cycles from startup through expansion, through to exit strategy and sales. Now, I help owners of industry-leading small businesses maximize and protect the value of their businesses to meet their long term financial goals. I have particular expertise in working with clients in the digital space (including esports, online influencers, and SaaS companies) and regulated professional services (such as accounting, insurance, and real estate).

Exit Strategy

The finish line is in sight! I am the owner of a successful, closely held service business. I’d like help with putting together my exit strategy so I can either make sure my business stays in the family, is managed by my protege as I transition into retirement, or is primed to sell for maximum value when I’m ready.

Growth

I’ve got a good thing going but need some help. My business is in its early stages and I need help with legal aspects of growth strategies. This might include entity planning and formation (like LLCs), issues with employees, business tax strategy, contracts, or asset protection.

WHAT OTHER CLIENTS HAVE SAID

Eric has been a great asset for a number of legal items. He has been responsive and patient and has worked to make sure any concerns have been addressed. He has provided guidance and comfort and made legal items approachable. Working with Eric has been a real pleasure.

Bryan, Cybersecurity Consultant

Eric is great to work with. I consulted with him on a personal matter and he completed his review in a very short time. I also refer my business clients to him for their legal needs on a regular basis. His rates are very reasonable, and he is very knowledgeable. I highly recommend him!

Claudia, Business Consultant

It’s a very nice feeling knowing that we can call on Eric for honest, quick, and conscientious legal help….sometimes at odd hours. Eric has helped us through some pretty challenging issues, we can’t thank him enough and therefore enthusiastically recommend his legal services. The last case Eric worked on for us was with real estate. Eric saved us from making a big mistake, which would have left us financially exposed….very glad we brought Eric on board with that transaction, or that particular real estate deal could have dealt us a tremendous blow.

Ree, Business Owner

I have been in the tax and accounting business for 10 years. I have been using Eric personally and for business for the past 4 years. He has completed my will, business contracts, LLC formations, non-competes, and given me legal counsel on the sale of a business. He has done great work on all these projects at a very reasonable price.

I have also referred him to over a dozen of my clients and I have never received a complaint from any of them. I highly recommend Eric Hsu.

Adam, Accounting Business Owner

Eric did an S-Corp for my real estate business and it saved me $22,000 in taxes that I would have had to pay to Uncle Sam. It was the best thing that I ever did for my business and Eric was great to work with. He was very complete in his paperwork and he got me set up fast so I would not miss my IRS deadline. He is an excellent attorney and I would highly recommend him.

Josh Blankenship, Real Estate Agent

I’ve used Eric on multiple occasions to set up new business entities. I’m always impressed with his work. He is very thorough and definitely has his client’s best interest in mind. I will continue using his services and recommend him to anyone I know.

Burt, Real Estate Agent

Eric has prepared employment agreements for me, along LLC filings and renewals. Eric is always punctual , timely and easy to communicate with. Keep up the great work!

Kyle Hagen, President of A-One Refrigeration & Heating, Inc.

CFL helped my business deal with a client trying to defame us. He responded quickly and did exactly what we needed. Will definitely use him again. Thank you!

Laura Gosink, Managing Veterinarian

Clear Focus is a great choice!

Diane Jaggi, Real Estate Investor

Eric helped me start a new business in a separate State, providing engineering services for Idaho National Lab. This required him to get multiple applications going simultaneously. This was done seamlessly and in a timely manner. He also negotiated my rates and other details, beyond my expectations. I couldn’t be happier with the results, or with his accessibility as the issues were dealt with.

Pat, Hedron Engineering, PLLC

I have used this firm for a few years now. Excellent, honest business with sound advice. More than affordable pricing. I highly recommend Eric.

Brad McCort, Business Owner

Legal advice on your terms! I hired Eric to assist with a corporate asset purchase, while working out of state. He was easily accessible, responsive and provided clear guidance on some sensitive topics. Transparent pricing and fee structure was also refreshing. He was great to work with and I plan to use him in the future should the need arise.

Victor, Business Owner

Cost-conscious and responsive. For many years, Eric has done an outstanding job supporting my various endeavors, from setting up a non-profit charitable organization to creating an LLC to acquire real estate. He has yet to exceed any quoted price for services, which is much appreciated. I highly recommend him to anyone.

Rick, Business Owner

I would recommend Eric with Clear Focus Law to anyone! Very knowledgeable and always available which is so important in business.

Samuel Worlund, Business Owner

Eric was a pleasure to work with during the entire process of setting up and formalizing my corporation. His experience made the process very clear and easy to understand, his turnaround time on deliverables was exceptional, and his cost was more than reasonable. He will have a hard time getting rid of this customer!
