Our Office

The law office of Eaton Law is located in a historic home at 513 Grant Street in Wausau. The house was built in 1910 by Peter Goerling.  Mr. Goerling was the manager of the Hotel Bellis, which was replaced by Hotel Wausau (now known as the Landmark Building) in 1924.

The house was originally quite modest, built in the American Foursquare style. In 1917, August Kickbusch II purchased the home. Kickbusch undertook extensive remodeling of the house in 1924, adding two sun rooms, arcaded windows and a tiled porch in the Mediterranean style, a formal classical entrance, and ornate custom-designed chimney crowns.

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.

Mr. Eaton did a wonderfully thorough job researching cases in the field that I required his guidance for, he was extremely knowledgeable and informative. With his help there was an out-of-court settlement reached in a timely manner. I could not ask for a better experience with a legal matter!!!

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 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.

Scott and Dale responded to our time-sensitive real estate contract situation in a swift and decisive manner. I was humbled by their thoughtfulness, thoroughness and professionalism throughout a very stressful time. They came highly recommended and I will never sign a contract without their review and approval. They have my highest respect and recommendation.

I would HIGHLY recommend East John Overbey Jackman LLP for any legal issues or representation you may need. Attorney Eaton has represented myself and members of my family in several different legal matters and each time we came out with a very favorable outcome. Mary John also represented my family in an Estate manor. Everyone there is extremely knowledgeable, professional and top of their game.
