Eaton W. Tarbell, III

Born and raised in Concord, New Hampshire, I graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 1995 and from Franklin Pierce Law Center (now known as University of New Hampshire School of Law) in 1998. 

I began my legal career doing mostly residential real estate transactions.  Over time, I got involved in more and more commercial real estate transactions.  As client needs changed with the economic climate, my practice areas changed accordingly as my clients sought services for foreclosures. 

My focus has always been in finding a solution to any given matter.  I am open to and look for different solutions to a variety of matters.  The ability to solve a problem is not limited to litigated matters.  By way of example, a title search may find an issue that needs to be addressed prior to closing.  Having been through countless transactions, I have the ability to resolve most issues that may stall or delay a closing without resorting to litigation.  This allows for clients to move forward efficiently and with the certainty that their matter was handled quickly and correctly.  However, from time to time parties simply cannot agree or are unwilling to find a resolution.  That is when the Courts come into play, and I guide clients through that process when it becomes necessary.

Our firm is responsive, personable and practical.  We take the time to meet our clients, preferably in person, not only to learn about their cases, but to learn what makes that person "tick".  That is to say, we want to know the motivation behind the meeting.  By knowing this, we may be able to suggest better, alternative resolutions.

This is a great group to work with as we truly work together.  Yes, we do enjoy each other's company, but also have keen legal minds.  They say that two minds are better than one.  In our firm, we often "round table" our cases with other attorneys within the firm.  This is an informal process where the attorneys will review their more difficult matters with other attorneys to ensure that all available remedies and resolutions have been considered.  It is truly a team environment.

My wife and I are the proud parents of two sons who kept us very busy while they were growing up, keeping us heavily involved with hockey and lacrosse.  I have coached both sons in both sports and served as the President of the Concord Crush for 4 years.   During the summer months for pretty much their entire childhood, we were sure to take in a MLB park or two.  In 2022 we were able to complete our tour of all 30 MLB ballparks, our favorite highlight being in Baltimore where we had the pleasure of seeing an umpire tackle a field trespasser.  Feel free to YouTube “Jeff Kellogg Umpire” if you would like to see the video.

While seemingly having very little to do with the practice of law, a pastime that served me well in my practice was my 25 years as a high school wrestling official.  It is safe to say that from time to time I encountered a participant that was relatively worked up, and I’ve developed ways to manage the situation while keeping everything under control.  We strive for a nice smooth closing and these learned lessons pay dividends.  Unlike Jeff Kellogg, mentioned above, no one has needed to be tackled to date.
