Trial Attorney William Eadie

I am a trial lawyer who helps families hurt by caregiver carelessness–such as nursing homes and hospitals–and hold the wrongdoers accountable.  Some people–even some trial lawyers–think people in nursing homes don’t matter, and their lives are not worth much.  I know better.  When a nursing home breaks its promise to provide good care to someone’s mother, father, sister, or brother, and refuses to take responsibility, I’m proud to help the family hold them accountable.

My greatest joy in this work is not just getting answers and results for those families, but helping them make sure it does not happen to someone else next time.

I understand how the business of medicine can harm people, when corporations put their own profits ahead of providing quality care.  Along with my law degree, I earned a business degree (MBA) from the Weatherhead School at Case.

Besides obtaining multi-million dollar nursing home verdicts, I can help defend those results if there is an appeal.  I’ve argued cases before the Eighth and Ninth Ohio Appellate District Courts, as well as the Ohio Supreme Court.

I am an Ohio native raising three daughters with my wife, Christine, in the Gordon Square neighborhood.  I volunteer in Cleveland Public Schools, working with high-schoolers to learn about our Rights, Responsibilities, and Realities under the U.S. Constitution as part of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association’s 3Rs program.  I also serve on the CMBA’s 3Rs steering committee.

Trial Attorney Mark Tassone

I am a trial lawyer whose practice has focused on representing plaintiffs and their families in nursing home neglect, abuse, and wrongful death cases. Having had a loved one abused in a nursing home, I understand the pain, frustration, sadness, powerlessness, and guilt felt by the families of nursing home abuse and neglect victims. As a trial lawyer with Eadie Hill Trial Lawyers, my practice will be focused on rewriting the narrative: converting pain to comfort, frustration to relief, sadness to closure, powerlessness into holding others accountable, and guilt into validation.

Originally from Virginia, I attended Hampden-Sydney College, where I earned a B.A. in Latin and Greek and Classical Studies. I also hold an M.A. from Florida State University in Latin. After a successful career in education, I attended the University of Cincinnati College of Law in Cincinnati, Ohio. I now reside in Cincinnati with my wife, Sara, son, Roman, daughter, Iris, and dog, Beau.

I strongly believe in community and professional engagement. I am an active member of the Rotary Club of Cincinnati. I am also an active member of the American Association for Justice, the Ohio Association for Justice, the Ohio State Bar Association, the Cincinnati Bar Association, and the Potter Stewart Inn of Court.

In my spare time, I enjoy music, reading, outdoor activities, and travel. In 2014, I hiked the Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile pilgrimage route across southern France and northern Spain.

My sister's and I tragically lost our mother to nursing home abuse and neglect. Michael and his team stepped in and did a full investigation and exposed the people who were responsible and got us the justice we deserved. Although nothing could ever replace our mom, Michael was a very kind and compassionate caring person and got us through this tragic time, and for that we say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I know our mom is resting in peace.

Trial Attorney K. Joshua Waters

I am a trial attorney with Eadie Hill. My passion has always been to help those in need, and I take great pride in being able to help my clients obtain justice when they or a loved one has been injured due to the acts or inaction of a nursing home and its employees. As I know firsthand, it truly hits differently when you see what happens to a loved one who is neglected and not adequately cared for by a nursing home. I strive to bring that same passion and demand for justice when helping our clients.

I was born in East Tennessee but quickly made Cincinnati my home when I moved to Butler County, Ohio while in high school. I currently reside just south of Cincinnati, in Northern Kentucky, with my incredible family. Two things most people quickly find out about me is that I love the area where I have lived for nearly two decades and I am passionate about the University of Tennessee.  

Prior to attending the University of Dayton School of Law to pursue my dream of becoming an attorney, I had a career in banking and as a financial advisor. I graduated law school in 2013 and, until joining the firm, I primarily represented doctors and large insurance companies, including their insureds. I am admitted to practice in all state courts in Ohio and Kentucky. Finally, I am a member of the Kentucky Bar Association; the Cincinnati Bar Association; the American Association for Justice; the Ohio Association for Justice; and the Southwest Ohio Trial Lawyers Association.

Every step of the way, you guys have been wonderful through everything. It seems like you two are my brothers now. That’s how much confidence we had in both of you.

Trial Attorney Madeleine Skora

I graduated magna cum laude from Salmon P. Chase College of Law in May 2022. During law school, I worked for a small personal injury firm where I was fortunate enough to gain experience in many areas of civil litigation. I have found it to be incredibly gratifying to work for and with clients suffering through the loss of a loved one to nursing home neglect. These clients are often navigating their grief as well as their inexperience with the litigation process, which can be very difficult. My hope is to guide these clients efficiently and effectively to their remedy by holding nursing homes accountable for their systemic failures. In doing so, my goal is to contribute to the implementation of higher standards and expectations for these institutions caring for vulnerable individuals in need of compassion.

I am thrilled to work for Eadie Hill and alongside other kind, caring, driven individuals with similar objectives. The task we have taken on is not an easy one; but, David conquered Goliath and we too shall persevere with communication, empathy, and personal accountability.

I currently live in Villa Hills, Kentucky, about ten minutes south of the Ohio River. Outside of work, I enjoy sitting by the pool, spending time with friends and family, pleasure reading, and taking care of my cats, Poppy and Belle. I am also a plant mom and love to work in the garden and tend to my indoor plants. I am a very high-energy individual and I love to learn; so, I often pick up small hobbies here and there for a short period of time until I move on to the next thing. At the moment, I am really enjoying painting despite the fact that my skills are very limited.

Attorney Hill was compassionate and really took the time to get to know my family and who our beloved one was. He is excellent at what he does and is highly recommended.

Trial Attorney Matt Mooney

I am a trial lawyer with a background of representing patients who have been harmed by medical neglect, and the loved ones of patients who passed away as the result of healthcare providers’ negligence. With Eadie Hill Trial Lawyers, I apply my skills to hold nursing homes and assisted living facilities accountable when they cause harm to their residents through neglect and abuse. I seek to challenge the eldercare industry’s practice of putting profits over people, by showing that providing poor quality care at the cost of residents’ health and safety doesn’t pay.

I was born in Odessa, Texas but grew up in the small town of Medina, Ohio. My parents were healthcare workers, and pushed me to consider a career in healthcare. While I was pursuing my undergraduate degree at the University of Akron, and throughout much of my J.D. studies at the C. Blake McDowell School of Law at the University of Akron, I worked as a nurses’ aide in the Intensive Care Unit of a local hospital. There, I witnessed many patients coming from nursing homes and assisted living facilities in terrible health. We could often tell which facilities patients came from based on their condition – certain facilities gained a reputation for sending us residents covered in bedsores, profoundly malnourished or dehydrated. This experience made me acutely aware of the crisis of compassion in our nursing homes, and the importance of accountability where providers cause profound harm.

Currently I live in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland with my fiancée, Samantha. We often visit my parents, sister, and young nieces in Batavia, Ohio, just outside of Cincinnati. In my free time, I keep up on current events and politics and like to read about political movements in American history. I enjoy taking hikes in the area metro parks with my dog, Chili (chow-chow) or sailing on lake Erie. I also volunteer with local organizations that distribute food and other essentials to those in need.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Will Eadie and Michael Hill.  Great Attorneys, dedicated to their clients.  I worked with Will on a large complex case and can say he has a knack for dealing with large litigation matters that others would be scared to take.

Case Manager Lisette Linares

Nursing Home Abuse Case Manager Lisette Linares

I currently reside in San Diego, California and have lived here since 2015. I was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. I went to CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts with a minor in Legal Studies. After moving to California, in 2017 I went back to school to obtain a Paralegal Certificate at the University of San Diego. In my last position, I was a Hearing Representative/Paralegal for Workers’ Compensation Asbestos cases.

Aside from my being a part of the legal industry, I also create art. I have been doing so since I was a kid and also went to a High School that specializes in the Arts. I love all forms of art by any means of how you choose to create it. I see most of the outside world through a creative lens. 

I was excited to hear that I got the position at Eadie Hill Trial Lawyers, because of the amazing work they do. My grandmother was a big part of my life. She was more like a Mother to me in every sense of my upbringing. So, I share a deep understanding and appreciation for the firm’s mission and values. It feels great to now say that I am a part of the Eadie Hill team!

My 7 year old daughter is a big part of my life. When I am not working or creating- I enjoy spending all of my time with her. I love introducing her to art, projects, expression, creation, dance, music, yoga, meditation… all of the things that will shape her. We love to have fun together and wouldn’t have it any other way.

I love to help those around me and I have always had a great passion for law. I obtained my Associate’s Degree in Applied Science, Paralegal Technology at Central Piedmont Community College.

My family is everything to me and it pains me to know that nursing homes can be so harmful. I am excited to know that I am working with such a great team to help the families of those harmed by nursing home abuse. 

I was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, where I currently reside. I am a new mom to a beautiful baby girl and nothing brings me more joy than to watch her grow. Outside of the office I love to spend time with my family, craft, cook and travel.

Settlement Paralegal Jack Pike

Nursing Home Abuse Paralegal Jack Pike

Currently residing in Boston, Massachusetts, I recently graduated with majors in Justice and Law and Political Science from American University in Washington, DC. Being a recent graduate, I was naturally eager to put my skills learned to the test, and I could find no better opportunity than working for Eadie Hill.

I have always been passionate with regards to fighting for justice, having participated in the Massachusetts Youth and Government program back in high school as well as doing campaign work for a local state representative candidate. So, when I found out about the opportunity to work at this firm, I naturally jumped on it. Having had family members reside within nursing homes, my interest was further bolstered in this field.

Outside of work, my hobbies include reading, hiking, taking care of my dog (a Shiba Inu named Miko), and watching football. Go Pats!

Litigation Paralegal Tricia Miller

Nursing Home Abuse Paralegal Tricia Miller

I currently live in Northeast Missouri with my three year old son. I have an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice from North Central Missouri College. 

I have always had a strong urge and passion for helping the eldery and those that are unable to advocate for themselves. That passion grew stronger after learning of my grandpa’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis. After several years of watching him struggle, the decision was ultimately made to put him in a Nursing Home where he later died from abuse and neglect. Unfortunately because of Covid laws protecting nursing homes, my family was unable to take action and get the justice we so desperately wanted. That experience has made me all the more excited to be a part of the Eadie Hill team. I want to make a difference in the lives of the families and better the nursing home system. 

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time at the lake with my son, reading, spending time with my family, and playing video games.

Litigation Paralegal Alexander Beck

Nursing Home Abuse Paralegal Alexander Beck

My name is Alexander Beck. I graduated from Charleston Southern University with a BS in Political Science and History Minor. Shortly after graduation I married my high school sweetheart of 8 years and we quickly started our new life in Raleigh, so she could pursue her career as a Physical Therapist. We currently reside in Cullowhee, NC where she is getting to develop that dream into a reality. That’s why I am excited to be a part of Eadie Hill, so I can also begin developing myself for my future career. Eadie Hill is a place that can help shape me into the paralegal I want to be, and I look forward to being the best I can be. 

When I am not working toward that goal, I love to spend time with my family and the outdoors. My wife and I have a dog named Duncan that we rescued almost a year ago and we love him dearly. I love to hunt, hike, fly fish, and most recently ride my motorcycle. I love discovering new hobbies and exploring them through many different avenues.

I am so very grateful and truly blessed to be called to this amazing team.  I look forward to being the best version of myself that I can be in this role and in life.  My motto has always been to treat others the way you would want to be treated, always choose kindness and leave it better than you found it.

I love to spend time in nature, meditate and study metaphysics, craft, remodel and redecorate our home.

I’ve always been passionate about helping those who’ve been through difficult circumstances in their lives. Something that I find unique is that not many people have “Earl” as their middle name because it’s a name from an earlier generation. 

I currently live in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois called Plainfield. 

I’m very excited to embark on this work to serve poorly treated patients at nursing and assisted living facilities to bring justice and improvements to the industry.

I enjoy reading, working out, watching basketball and football (GO BULLS and BEARS!!), and spending time with my family
