The city of wausau proves to have some shady attorney's. I hired Dale Eaton after a lengthy conversation about the goals I had for my peticular case. He told me everything I wanted to hear. I paid him a $2500 dollar retainer. We had a trial date set and coming up and I tried contacting Mr. Eaton several times in the coming weeks before trial with no luck. 2 days before trial I get an email from Mr.Eaton stating he was substituting another attorney by the name of Trevor Peterson because he had overbooked on another big business meeting and Trevor was to be my new attorney. Trevor has limited experience in the type of case I have. Thankfully the trial got pushed out but then Mr Eaton decides to bill me another 4997.02 for his services. That's rediculous. These people are crooks. Please don't put yourself in a shady situation like I did. Look elsewhere for a attorney that is honest and has integrity.i have hired a new attorney and I will be filing a grievance against this firmI am going to edit this review in response to their reply. I never said Trevor Peterson was a bad attorney. The problem lies with Dale Eaton who owns the firm. Mr Eaton knows better than to substitute an attorney for a client. Especially without the clients knowledge or approval and then to charge that client the amount of money he did is way left field. We will let the grievance I am filing iron this out

I recently had a harassment charge put on me with a very short notice injunction (3 days), and had Trevor Peterson from Eaton Law handle it for me. From the initial sit down, until the end, my worries were lightened by his professionalism. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome.

Attorney Dale Eaton frames the defense of his clients with high integrity and provides representation based on his vast knowledge of the law and legal precedent. His ability to reason and explain with civility, and without unnecessary condemnation and judgement of adversaries is admirable.

As a new business owner, I had an opportunity to do some independent contract work with a global company in the industry of my expertise. I was very excited about it, and ready to just sign on the dotted line. But then my better senses told me to have a legal review of the contract first. The attorneys at Eaton John Overbey Jackman reviewed the contract terms and pointed out several areas of concern that could have left me financially vulnerable. They provided a thorough draft of recommended changes which provided the foundation for my contract negotiations. I was able to approach the contract discussions with clarity and confidence, and we signed a deal that protected my business interests while ensuring me increased financial security. It was nice to have the legal expertise of this firm protecting my interests all along the way. I would highly recommend this law firm for small businesses like mine.

Called twice with no receptionist to answer. Left two messages requesting a call back for family law representation. Never got a call back. After my review posted i received a voice mail from a senior partner apologizing for the two missed calls that she looked into as well as an explanation on how the calls were missed. The following day I received a phone call from the receptionist her self with a full sincere apology from her. We are all human and make mistakes so apologies accepted. I can see they do care about their professionalism and quickly made right of a mistake that was brought to their attention. My rating of yhem went from a one star to a four.

I was in a bad marriage and needed a lawyer. I was lucky to have a friend that used the services of Attorney Overbey for his divorce and Daniel came highly recommended. I met with Daniel and knew that he was the Attorney I needed to get the job done. Attorney Overbey is well spoken, respected by the courts, honest, caring, and really does have my best interests in mind. He worked very hard to keep my costs in check but ensured that the job was done right. He is an attorney with high moral standards. I feel lucky to have had Attorney Overbey represent me. I am better off today than I ever thought I would be thanks to him being in my corner. I feel it should also be mentioned that the staff at EJOJ is FANTASTIC. From the moment you call and are greeted by a friendly voice that always recognized my voice and asked how I was, to Daniels Paralegal Pamela, the team is outstanding. There were even a few issues in my divorce that other people in the office needed to be brought in for guidance on and those issues were handled with ease, smoothly, and with total team integration. The service I received was beyond my expectations and I can’t thank Daniel and the team enough.Update - I needed the services of Daniel for a contempt motion against my ex. Again, he and the team are simply fantastic! There are not enough words to express my gratitude to Daniel and the whole EJOJ team!

Mary John was so helpful. She took my call right away. Gave me advice on a realestate transaction, and made a recommendation for a title company. Very professional!
15:47 10 Aug 20
Mary John was very pleasant to deal with, but very assertive in getting a slow investment company to honor their obligations. She used the correct legal terminology to forcefully motivate them to follow through on what they agreed to. Her price was also very reasonable. We were impressed that she returned part of the original retainer. I recommend this trustworthy autorney of high integrity.

What a terrible experience. Over priced. Would have saved thousands of dollars not hiring them. Just a bunch of nonsense. Very dissatisfied in this firm. All you will get are invoices in the mail and NO results. And piss poor communication. Do not hire for anything with a contract.
