Since becoming a "people's lawyer," Eaves has represented thousands of Mississippians injured as a result of asbestos, pharmaceutical drugs and nursing home abuse, as well as those having problems with insurance companies. He also currently represents many Mississippians who were price-gouged following Hurricane Katrina.

He also has represented the nation of Ukraine against U.S. tobacco companies.
Ongoing cases also include his representation of U.S. soldiers suffering from complications as a result of the initial Gulf War and American Nationals in Kenya against Osama bin Laden, several Islamic organizations and the government of Sudan for the 1998 American embassy bombings in Nairobi and Kenya.
