Peyton is an absolute professional! Would recommend him to anyone. Exceptional person, extremely easy to talk to, and work with on multiple levels. His work ethic is unprecidented. Peyton reviewed every aspect of the DUI case and subpoena'd everything he needed and would not take no for an answer for records keeping and video logs. This could have been the "make or break" in the case. If you need an exceptional lawer with exceptional skills. Payton is the person to call, hands down. Not based on the outcome of the case, but because he is such a talented lawyer and professional.

Being parents whose child was caught up in the juvenile justice system was a complete shock! We could not have successfully navigated this complicated legal system without Mr. Peebles. This being our first encounter with any legal issues, his knowledge was invaluable. He was always available to answer questions and took the time to explain things in detail so that we could make informed decisions. He is a confident attorney with a calm and patient manner. Through persistence, and knowledge of the proper procedures, as well as the necessary contacts to navigate the proper channels, he was able to achieve the the best possible outcome in regards to our case. The whole process was handled fairly quickly and with very little inconvenience to our family. We are very grateful we were able to have him represent our child.

I hired Mr. Peebles for my FEDERAL CASE. Mr. Peebles was able to explain the most complicated issues in a way that I could understand them. He was extremely polite the entire time and very honest. Mr Peebles is a brilliant individual with amazing knowledge when it comes to the legal system. He diagnosed my case from every angle in order to get me the best results possible, and he did an excellent job. He displayed his personal concern the entire time and kept me updated. Peyton assured I received the best results I could possibly acquire stemming from this type of case. There is no way I could ask for any better outcome, and I am convinced I would not have received these results if I had hired someone else. I highly recommend Peyton and his staff no matter what your legal issue may be because I probably would not be here at home with my family typing following a case such as mine. Thank You so much Peyton.

Because we are business owners and have worked with numerous business, tax and estate attorneys, Peyton Peebles came highly recommended by them.
Our 17 year old High School Senior was falsely charged with a Felony Assault. Had he been convicted of this offense, it would have cost him his future. He would not be able to attend Texas A&M with a pending felony charge nor enlist as an Officer in the US Air Force upon college graduation with a Felony on his background. Peyton Peebles was extremely thorough in his investigation and obtained the evidence needed to prove our sons innocence at the Grand Jury level with all charges dropped. We can not thank him enough for the time and energy he put in to protecting our son. Peyton is not only an excellent defense attorney, he is also an amazing role model and someone who has had a major impact on our son. He looks up to Peyton and says his goal is to not only make us proud but Peyton as well.

I approached Peyton to get relief in a case for which I pleaded guilty long time ago. He investigated the case from all possible angles and even though it took a lot longer than I expected, he was able to file a successfull writ of habeas corpus and got the charges against me dismissed. He even got the case expunged with out charging me anything extra. Even though he was pricey compared to all the other attorneys that I spoke before deciding to go with him, it was a right decision.I am very much indebted to him on this. It was years of anguish but it was finally put to an end, thanks to Peyton. He is very good at what he does.

Peyton Peebles is an attorney who we would recommend to anyone. We found him to be very professional, yet personable, while providing a relazed atmosphere during our consultations. He was passionate about our case and encouraged us during the entire process. Peyton worked quickly to win the case for us and did all he could to keep the cost as low as possible. We would not hesitate to call on him again should the need arise. Again, we recommend Peyton Peebles as an outstanding attorney who would work tirelessly for the benefit of his clients.

I would highly recommend Mr. Peebles to anyone seeking legal representation or advice. I was referred to him by another attorney in the greater Houston area for representation in a Medicaid billing fraud case. As a dental professional I had a lot to lose so I had high expectations when investing in legal counsel. Mr. Peebles far exceeded my expectations. He was readily available to meet with me about my case, he was easy to communicate with, he wasted no time coming up with a plan and always kept me informed on any updates, changes etc. Within a short amount of time he produced the end result I was looking for. I would highly recommend Mr. Peebles to anyone considering hiring him for his services. You will be in good hands.

Peyton and his team did an excellent job. After many mistakes from the police department, DA, and prosecuting attorneys, Peyton came in at the perfect time and sought full dismissal. I was set for trial, and at the status conference I was given a lesser charge in a plea bargin. Not only did we not accept their offers, but turned it around and forced a dismissal. Peyton did his research and not only used the evidence efficiently, but knew the right time to use it. I would highly reccomend his services.

I was referred to Peyton by a friend who had used his services before. I called him and we scheduled an appointment, and since this was for my son, he made sure to make the appointment late enough in the afternoon so that my son would not miss any school. We talked, he talked to my son alone, then we talked again. He spent a lot of time going over the details and explaining the legal ramifications and potential outcomes. He talked directly to my son (a juvenile) and explained things very clearly. I was impressed with the way he handled dealing with a teenager.
Peyton gave me his cell phone number and when I called, he either answered or called back as soon as he could. When I emailed, he replied within hours. I never had to go through a secretary; just dealt directly with Peyton. I was surprised. I have gone to an attorney on 2 other occasions for non-criminal issues and always ended up dealing with the "staff" and had very little face time with the attorney, so dealing with Peyton directly was a pleasant surprise.
I am sure Peyton's former employment in the DA office helped as he discussed my son's case. With all the great support he told me I should gather to defend my son, he was able to get the case dismissed.
Peyton is very professional and charismatic. He is confident without being arrogant. If another unfortunate legal issue arises, I will at least feel confident that I know the perfect attorney for the job.

There are not enough stars to properly rate Peyton!!! Peyton scores a perfect 10 on my case and he had his work cut out for him. He did a fantastic job. Best possible outcome that could come from our case, and he achieved it. Dismissed!
He is Honest, Positive and has great communication with the client. We were never left in the dark about any details of the case or new information. Do not think twice about trusting Peyton with your case, just hire him! You will be relived later after you have him in your corner!

Peyton was referred to us by a family friend, a notable attorney himself. He wrote an excellent cover letter for the grand jury consideration. His contacts at the courthouse allowed us to schedule the case for consideration early. The case was no-billed by the grand jury. Peyton is very professional, hard-working, helpful and honest. I highly recommend him.

I learned of Peyton Peebles through a co-worker. Mr. Peebles and I talked, and I retained him to handle a case for my son. I felt confident that I had chosen the right man, immediately. Peyton's knowledge, and professionalism was quite comforting. He was always there for us when we had questions, and his answers were always honest. My sons' case went to trial, and THAT is where this man stands out. I was extremely pleased to see how Peyton handles a courtroom. His demeanor, and professionalism in the courtroom made us proud to have him as our attorney...and a "not guilty" verdict didn't hurt either. I have recommended Peyton to many friends since, and will continue to recommend Peyton Peebles.

Peyton was referred to us by a collegue, and I can say without a doubt that if I need additional legal service, Peyton would be the first one I call!! Hopefully I won't need it again, but if I do! He was on top of everything, kept us informed of what was to be expected, when court was, etc.

I came across Peyton by sorting the mails. Then I have checked ratings and any info about this lawyer, available online. After meeting him personally, I had such a positive feeling, and asked Mr. Peyton to take my case.
At the very first meeting, he took long time to listen my story and made some notes. Not like some other lawyers, who do not spend extra time on you at the times, when you need it most. Immediately, he pointed a few possible outcomes, and gave a few valuable recommendations.
Peyton won my case, and it was dismissed. He is a brilliant layer, a gem. It was amazing to watch him in the court room: he was the most charismatic person there.
Thank you a lot, Mr. Peyton for your help!

We were referred to Peyton Peebles through a close personal friend. He handled our son's case with the utmost professionalism and always had our son's best interests in mind throughout the entire ordeal. He stayed in touch with us and kept us informed as the case progressed. Thanks to his hard work our son now has a second chance to pursue his dreams. We would highly recommend his services to anyone needing a qualified, professional and honest attorney. We are glad we made the right choice with Peyton Peebles.

When I came across Peyton, I already had a lawyer hired for my case. After 5 min of talking with Peyton I was sold and hired him instead. He went the extra mile on helping me win my case. Always kept me informed and watching him court was a pleasure, Very knowledgeable and confidant. I never had a doubt when he was on the case.

I came across Mr. Peebles in a flyer after filtering through about fifty lawyers. I narrowed it down to about ten lawyers. I then called each one. I left messages with five via their secretaries (none of them returned my call), two of them were pushing their services down my throat, one of them had poor control of English grammar, and the final two seemed promising (Peyton was obviously among the finalists).
I had two phone interviews with both attorneys, and chose Peyton based on his professional conduct, and most importantly, the fact that he worked as an assistant DA in the past. Now the fun began.
When I went to go see Peyton, he was extremely professional. I have dealt with a few lawyers in the past, and those have been quick to get you in and out. Peyton took the time to explain my situation, went into potential scenarios we could take if we went to court, and honestly, he gave me confidence in his ability to handle my case.If you don't have confidence in your lawyer, you're already starting off on a bad foot.
One interesting thing I did note when I was in my multiple court hearings (they kept getting rescheduled), was that a significant number of people knew Peyton. I'm not kidding. Some of the other lawyers chatted with him, the DA's would say hello, and twice I even saw that the officers in the court go out of their way to say "Good morning" to him and chat. I don't know the reason behind their behavior, but it was probably the fact that he was an assistant DA for a while. Having your lawyer recognized by many was a great feeling to have in this setting. Some of the other people were also asking me who Peyton was (I think they were jealous that their lawyers weren't as well known, at least by the people in my court).
In the end, my case was dismissed thanks to Peyton's diligent work. The DA agreed with Peyton on an important issue, and decided to dismiss instead of going to court. However, we already had a game plan to go to court, and the DA decided it was not worth their time.
I do not know the type of case some of you guys might have, and I don't know the severity of it. However, if you want someone that is friendly, knowledgeable, and fairly well known within the judicial system of Houston, please highly consider going with Peyton Peebles. I can't guarantee you will get the same results as I did, but I can assure you Peyton will give you confidence in whatever adversity it is you are facing.
One last thing to add. Peyton always got back to me in a timely manner whether it was through phone or email. Their is something about promptness and punctuality that many people do not have. Thanks for everything Peyton. : )

It is my great pleasure and honor to express my graditude and appreciation for Peyton Peebles III's exceptional, trustworthy and commendable performance. His thorough investigation of my case was most impressive. He did not rush in and make a haste descion, but instead with patience and diligence he was able to convince the DA to dismiss my claim. Advise to the reader, don't ever over look all the mail from attorneys that you get when needed. There is always a diamond in the rough. And Payton Peebles III was my diamond. "What a blessing".
