When somebody else harms or threatens the well-being of your business, you may have to stand up and protect your rights. To do that, you will need the assistance of an experienced and accomplished business lawyer – one who pours the best of himself into his work, just as you do.


Eric Helmy’s business clients at NW Business Law LLC enjoy direct and regular contact with him. We never charge our clients for reasonable communications, because it is critical that there never be any barriers to clear dialogue and planning. Each client gets regular and devoted care. Due to this highly attentive style of representation, we are selective in our choice of cases and clients.

All of our clients benefit from our proactive case planning. Starting with a candid and open discussion of each clients’ needs, desires, and goals, we work with every client to create customized strategies to best serve his or her needs. We incorporate our proprietary advanced litigation strategies into the plan, in cooperation with our clients.


To help strategic planning and remove unwanted financial surprises to our clients, we almost always price our services by the task instead of by the hour.
We identify what services need to be performed for our clients, estimate in good faith the amount of time and effort necessary for each task, and then price each task accordingly.

Since each case plan is custom-built, price points depend greatly upon the circumstances of each case.

From a financial perspective, we develop our litigation plans in a manner that reflects the amount or value at stake in each case. We strive to have our clients benefit substantially from having had our representation, and we have a strong track record of achieving such positive results.

  • 100% Satisfaction with Communication
         Eric helped represent me with a very large lawsuit that was brought against me. 100% satisfaction with communication. It was timely; it was appropriate; it was insightful, thoughtful. From beginning to end, it was very clear that my legal counsel, Eric Helmy was by far the better warrior, so to speak, the intellectually, strategically, and we clearly outthought the opposition from beginning to end, and I don’t think they knew what hit them. The opposition didn’t have any choice but to really retreat and drop the suit, so I was very satisfied.

  • He'll Respond to Me When I Need Him.
         …I believe my law case never would have got off the ground without Eric’s attention to what was happening to me. I’m an excavator, in the tough times that have come along, there’s been several instances where the big developers think they’re not going to pay me, and I feel like they’re trying to [take advantage of] me. I can call Eric,…and he’ll come down and go sit in a meeting with me and all these big developers are writing checks before we’re getting up and leaving. …It’s nice to know that I have him on retainer, and he’ll respond for me when I need him. That’s the personal service you’ll get with him…

  • We Left With Important Information and a Plan
         Our first meeting with Eric was very helpful. We left with important information and a plan, and now we have our own corporation! Eric was invaluable in the writing of our bylaws and in advising our business setup. He also had great insights into owning a business in the Northwest. Having him on our company’s side makes us feel ready for the legal hurdles we will face as our business grows.
    Jaclyn Stewart CEO of Jurevicious Studios
  • We are Very Pleased
         …We’ve worked with Eric on two different contract matters and [have] been very, very pleased with his advice and all the support he’s provided to members of our organization…We were really, really pleased with the quality of work Eric delivered, all the due diligence he performed, the advice he gave to the members of our staff…We would certainly recommend Eric, and we would hope to work with him again.
