If you are facing legal troubles, your initial instinct may be to choose a legal specialist that focuses on a single area. Your thinking may be that a specialist is going to have experience in that area and, therefore, will be the best person to help you with a problem. However, what many legal practitioners recognize is that very few legal disputes involve only a single area of the law. Criminal legal matters often have civil legal repercussions; business decisions can have consequences for bankruptcy or tax matters; family law matters can impact custody in ways that can be difficult to foresee in the midst of a divorce; and just about every legal matter has both short-term and long-term financial consequences that can be life-altering.
Calera area attorney John Martin Eades is an expert in financial legal matters but also understands that almost every legal matter is a financial legal matter. He is able to help clients with routine legal matters ranging from criminal defense to immigration to family law, by helping them understand all of the long-term consequences of decisions in matters that may not seem to have a clear impact on financial well-being. With a B. Sc. in Business Administration, a Masters in Business Administration, and an L.L.M. in Taxation in addition to his J.D., he has the academic and professional expertise to help clients in all high-level financial or business matters including incorporation, business formation, tax disputes with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or the Alabama Department of Revenue, bankruptcy, wills and estates, and probate administration. Perhaps more importantly, his status as a general practitioner means that he is able to look beyond the financial ramifications of individual decisions and foresee how they will impact other areas of your life.
