Ready to get started?
I offer different ways to work with me depending on your needs and preferences.
Need someone to take the legal hassles off your plate so you can focus on growing your business?
Chances are, the legal hassles of running your business are obstacles that get in the way of what you really need to do. Do yourself a favor. let me take care of those legal hassles so you can get back to what you’re good at.
Legal hassles can easily make it feel like your business isn’t worth the hassle.
I bet you didn’t set out to start or grow a business so you could deal with all the legalities involved. Wouldn’t life be easier if you could just focus on managing, growing, and running your business?
Some legal problems business owners face
Should you form an LLC or corporation? How should you tax it? Do you need an operating agreement or buy-sell agreement? What assets should be held inside your business entity? Many business owners understandably get overwhelmed by these early business choices and either do nothing or just let a quick, off-the-cuff web search be the deciding factor.
Or how about contracts? If you don’t understand the exact implications of every single contract you sign, you could be setting yourself up for trouble (I’ve had to help many a client out of bad contracts that have haunted them for years). What kinds of contracts does your business need anyway? If help with contracts is what you need, I can help you with review, negotiation, or drafting of just about any type of contract including master service contracts and licensing agreements.
Tax questions can be one of the biggest source of frustration for small business owners. Many of them just give up and let their accountant handle everything (not knowing that many accountants will just cover necessary tax filings and won’t make tax strategy suggestions or point out opportunities for regular tax savings unless they are asked). Sometimes these poor business owners don’t know what they don’t know as far as taxes and leave thousands of dollars of tax savings at the table, unclaimed. Even worse, other business owners, without proper direction, keep such poor records that they end up getting penalized when they are audited.
Asset protection is another big concern of small business owners, especially those in high revenue or high litigation industries. What’s the point of building a successful business if you’re going to lose it all to the over-litigious people out there. Fortunately there are asset protection strategies that can help. From exemption planning to using trusts to strategically segregating your business into different entities, it is very possible to put up powerful and legal shields to dissuade would-be creditors from taking what’s yours.

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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
Clear Focus is a great choice!
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.
I have used this firm for a few years now. Excellent, honest business with sound advice. More than affordable pricing. I highly recommend Eric.
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.
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.
I would recommend Eric with Clear Focus Law to anyone! Very knowledgeable and always available which is so important in business.
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!
