Welcome to Clear Focus Law
You’ve come to the right place.
Hi, I’m Eric, founder & owner of Clear Focus Law.
I started Clear Focus Law for one purpose: to make law work for business again.
You see, I got tired of seeing good, hard-working business owners struggle so much with legal hassles that they didn’t have the time or energy to do what they really enjoyed. Like actually building their business. Or spending time with their families. At the same time, the traditional law firm model made legal services so unenjoyable, unattainable, and ridiculously expensive for the average small business, that many business owners did without sound legal advice – or tried to make a go of it on their own.
My goal with Clear Focus Law is to change the whole paradigm of how legal services are provided to small businesses so that you can get solid, practical legal advice you can actually understand, on your terms, and at a price that won’t kill your budget. Learn more about the six ways that Clear Focus Law can serve you better, or scroll down to learn more about me and my team.
Thanks for visiting. I hope to be of service to you and your business.
Meet the Team
Ready to take legal hassles off your plate.
Do you like worrying about legal hassles?
I didn’t think so. Running a business is hard enough without having to worry about legal hassles on top of that. And legal hassles are hard enough without having to deal with lawyers.
That’s why I started Clear Focus Law. To help business owners who don’t like dealing with their own legal hassles, and definitely don’t like dealing with the lawyers who always make it more complicated.
In addition to being a lawyer, I’m also an husband, dad, entrepreneur, outdoor enthusiast, amateur gardener, and technology geek.
I bring my varied experiences and skills to play every time I work with a client. I like to think that this helps me be as creative as possible when solving legal problems for my client in a business-friendly way.
I enjoy working on legal problems from the smallest one-off question to large complex transactions, succession plans, or other legal puzzles.
Law doesn’t exist in a vacuum. I get that. That’s why I take a totally holistic approach to legal problems. Whether that means helping you with your business model, giving you suggestions for marketing, or bringing together a bigger team (including tax, insurance, and banking professionals for instance) we can put together the well rounded solutions that your business needs to thrive.
Never will I bring overly aggressive, cautious, or convoluted legal solutions that jeopardize your business transactions or relationships. I know that when business and law clash, business has to prevail – if you want to keep your doors open.
I’m a digital marketing and cyber-technology practitioner. In addition to experience as a felony-level digital crimes prosecutor, I now own a digital marketing business (Communication Hackers) with my wife. If you’ve got technology related legal worries, I can help.
Caring & compassionate approach
I care about your business. I really do! One of my favorite aspects of client meetings is hearing the unique stories that go into the businesses that I get to help build. Now that’s exciting! I look forward to hearing about the story of your (business) baby.
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.
