My husband was unrighteously charged with murder two years ago after having to defend himself on our own property. I found The Texas Legal Team law firm online and we were lucky enough to get Peyton and Steve Shellist to represent us. From the very beginning they made us feel at home and gave us the hope we needed in our very uncertain time. For 2 years Peyton worked diligently on our case even taking work home on the weekend when he had to. He was always there for us when we needed him which made us feel more like family than clients. Peyton came to our house and spent hours doing a complete walk through of what happened so that he'd be more acquainted with it. He dug in, he investigated, he covered every single basis as to be familiar with any angle the state might have come up with. In addition, Peyton handles the court room with ease and grace. He was easily able to get the judge to remove the ankle monitor and curfew the state had put my husband on. Peyton was also able to get the judge to let my husband go on vacation with us out of state when he wasn't supposed to leave the county. Peyton Peebles is a master at what he does and his presence is commanding. He's patient, kind, humble and he gets things done. Peyton is extremely educated with multiple degrees and his vast knowledge of the law is unbelievable. Peyton and Steve make a great team. When it came time for trial they were overly prepared and hit it out of the park. From jury selection to closing statements Peyton and Steve showed true professionalism and passion for what they do and they do it extremely well. After a two and one third day trial and a short one hour deliberation, the jury came back with a unanimous verdict of NOT GUILTY. We pretty much had to trust a lawyer with our lives and I'm so glad that lawyer was Peyton. When it comes to lawyers it doesn't get any better than Peyton Peebles!
I was put in a horrible position to defend myself against someone on my property which ultimately led to the death of that person. in doing so, I was unrighteously charged with murder for legally defending myself, my family and my property. I thank god every day for him leading me to Peyton and his partners. Peyton and his partner Steve Shellist guided me through this tight rope walk of a process with grace. They treaty us like family from day one and never quit doing so. Peyton's aim is true and his case preparation is even better. He never left me uniformed as to what was going on with my case. He Always answered my phone calls or replied to them by text or email which is hard to come by these days. i was ultimately found not guilty. Justice was serve thanks to all of Peyton and Steves hard work and expertise. Peyton is truly a great person and an expert at what he does. I will forever be thankful for what he and his partner Steve did for me and my family. Thanks again

My daughter was charged with a third degree felony, injury to elderly, fall of 2013. She reluctantly plead guilty to a charge she didn't commit or understand, so she could get out of jail. She plea bargained and received deferred adjudication/probation, we were assured that after she completed her probation there would be no record. This of course, turned out to be false.
I spent weeks researching attorneys before I found Mr. Peyton Peebles. During the initial consultation I was very impressed by him, his ability to communicate legal procedure and his opinion on my daughters case. He was very professional, and to the point. He filed a Writ of Habeas Corpus in November 2014, my daughters case was reopened and charges dismissed January 2015.
I highly recommend Peyton Peebles for anyone who is unfortunate enough to get caught up in the criminal system.

Being arrested in a foreign country during a business trip presented a very scary situation with little knowledge of the local legal process. With my career in jeopardy I was recommended to contact Peyton Peebles. During the initial consultation I was very impressed by Peyton and his ability to communicate the legal proceedure, where my charge stood and his opinion on my case. He was confident we could resolve the case before going to trial. A lengthy legal process and/or a conviction were both results that could end my career. Fortunately, at the first court date Peyton was able to get the perfect result by getting the case dismissed. I would highly recommend Peyton for his honesty, professionalism and ability to communicate the complex legal system into an easy to understand narrative for the client.

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.
