Welcome to Clear Focus Law
You’ve come to the right place.
Hi, thanks for visiting
I’m a business lawyer and the founder of Clear Focus Law.
I provide business-savvy legal representation on business purchase and sale (“M&A”) deals. A number of fast-growing small businesses also count on me for strategic advice in all aspects of their operations.
More about me
This is the part where most lawyers would tell you about where they went to school. Or where they grew up. Or a bit about their hobbies (is this because lawyers feel like they need to “sound” more human)? Thing is, I’m guessing that you’re not too interested in hearing about my life story. You probably want to just cut to the chase and find out how I can help you, and whether we’re a good fit for working together. If I’m right, then I invite you to use the following to evaluate me (instead of a self-written bio):
Nothing is as objective as reviews from past clients. I encourage you to check out my reviews on avvo.com (lawyer review site like “Yelp” for lawyers), Google, and Facebook. I pride myself on doing the best job possible for all my clients and my reviews reflect this.
You can access all of my reviews easily and conveniently on my reviews page.
I’m active on LinkedIn and regularly post about business topics that might interest you. I also use LinkedIn for most of my professional networking. Please feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn if you’d like to learn a bit more about my professional network, content I share, and how I relate with the business community, before deciding whether to hire me.
I strongly believe in teaching and empowering my clients (and also believe that this is one area where the legal industry as a whole, falls short. I try my best to share my teaching side and provide current and future clients with valuable insight and tools through my blog articles on this website.
In addition to my Blog, I’ve also created a glossary to help my clients (and future clients) better understand the legal jargon that they will find in business purchase and sale deals. Again, I believe in empowering my clients with the knowledge they need to use my services to the maximum benefit (especially if it’s their first time buying or selling a business).
Should we chat?
If it looks like we might be a good fit, maybe the next step is to set up a quick (virtual) meet & greet?
PS, I don’t offer free consults but since you’ve taken the time to learn this much about me, I’m happy to schedule a quick phone call so we can talk in a bit more detail and see if we’re a good fit for working together. Just click here to schedule.
The Rest of My Team
Ready to help you find legal peace™.
Meet my wife Laura. She’s in charge of marketing for the firm, but more importantly for you, she is also the Client Care Manager.
Not only does that mean that Laura is the one who can help you when I’m not available, but she’s also the one who helps me make sure that 100% of everything I do is completely client-focused. That means that from the very first second you visit my website to when we finalize and wrap up your project, my services are completely focused on your convenience and your needs. Not the other way around. And, if I start getting carried away and being too “lawyerly” I’ve got Laura to answer to!
Here are a few things you might want to know about Laura:
Laura isn’t a lawyer.
That’s what makes her so good at what she does. She can see our firm, our practices, and my approach, from an outsider’s non-lawyer viewpoint. Am I making things too complicated? Am I speaking with too many acronyms or jargon? Am I losing track of the “business” in business law? Laura has the perspective to get me back on track so I can do my best for your business.
Laura is a communicator.
With a degree in English, experience as a teacher, and over a decade of work helping scientists in a National Lab communicate highly technical materials in an understandable way, Laura is a communicator. A helluva a good one. She helps ensure that my communications with clients, whether through reports, correspondence, publications, or educational material, is always clear, concise, and understandable.
Laura knows privacy & security.
Having worked in a National Lab environment on highly sensitive projects, privacy and security are second nature for Laura. She plays a huge part in helping me put together the infrastructure that keeps your private information private, and away from unwelcome prying eyes, whether they be your competitors, or Facebook.
With Laura on the team, one & one really does equal more than two. We’re standing by to take the legal hassles off your plate.
