Excellent Attorney
Mr. Peyrouton answered my call on New Years Day. From that first conversation I knew I wanted Alan to represent me. He is very honest, professional and knowledgeable. He made the entire process incredibly easy and had my charges dismissed. I would recommend Alan to anyone in need.

Best Attorney
Let me start by saying that Alan and Kevin gave me my life back. I was been charged with different charges and facing over 15 years in jail. When i first walk into their office i was scared and uncertain of what my future was going to be but thanks to these two great men i got my life back. I explained my situation and how i was falsely accused and they could see that i was telling the true. They became more than a bodyguard on my behalf. They defended me like if i was their son or a relative. Expended extended hours on my case, any other lawyer would charge a very large amount of money. They did an awesome job and i have a personal appreciation for them. The outcome of my situation was incredibly. Didn't have to go to trial even though they were more than ready, no jail time, no probation or PTI. For my career it was awesome because i have a secret clearance and anything other than a small fine would jeopardize it. I would like to thank them and If you ever need a knowledge lawyer call them they are the best. Quisiera empesar por decir que Alan y Kevin me devolvieron mi vida. Estaba en la situation que podia ver unos 15 años en la carcel. La primera vez que entre a su officina yo tenia miedo e inseguro de lo que esperaba del futuro. Le explique mi situacion e inmediatamente se dieron cuenta que decia la verdad sobre las falsas acusaciones. En ese momento tomaron mi caso y se volvieron mas que mis guarda espalda. Pelearon por mi como si yo fuera su hijo o algun pariente. Trabajaron muchisimas horas que cualquier otro abogado me ubiera cobrado muchisimo. En este caso tenia un dos por uno. Le tengo un aprecio personal a los dos. Al final los resultados fueron sorpredientes. No tube ningun tipo de probacion o PTI. Para el trabajo que hago cualquier cargo que no sea una pequeña multa afectaria mi trabajo. Ademas tengo una segurida secreta y para aquirir ese tipo de suguridad es muy dificil. Le quiero dar las gracias a los dos y recomendarlos a cualquiera que tenga algun problema con la ley

Brilliant, caring legal mind(s)
Once again I find myself in a position to retain the services of Peyrouton Law Firm. While unfortunate, I must say, the silver lining of these circumstances are the unequalled representation of, in my opinion, the best, most hands on legal team one could ever hope for. I found Mr. Peyrouton quite by accident, calling attorneys for an unfortunate criminal matter I'd been entangled in. He immediately put me at ease, fully explaining the process, what to expect, and how to proceed. When I met his associate, Kevin Brown, who exhibited the same values as Mr. Peyrouton, I knew immediately I'd made the right choice. This is a first rate firm, that prioritizes your defense, cares about you, and follows up meticulously. If you need representation for yourself, or someone you care about, look no further.

He was honest about the whole process from the beginning. He told me so many things I didn’t know and the whole thing went exactly as he said . One of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Great Service and professionalism
I have been a client of Alan Peyrouton for 10 years. He has always treated me with respect and professionalism. He is extremely knowledgeable and very prompt to get back to you with any questions or concerns you may have, he really cares about his clients which is important to me and something I did not experience when I hired other attorneys. I recommend Alan to my friends and family to help them with any legal matters they have. Thank you.

DRUG CASE DISMISSED! 1ST OFFENSE! NO CONDITIONAL DISCHARGE PROGRAM!
I had in incident where I ran into the law in July of 2017. This was my first ever criminal charge. Scary process. Went searching on the internet and came across Alan. He pretty much left everything out on the table. And weighed my options. Plead guilty, and it stays on my record for 5+ years, or plead not guilty and we fight it. Best case scenario I did probation for 6 months to a year, and I use something called a “get-out-of-jail” free card, which you only get once in your lifetime. I told him let’s fight it. As of December 10th, 2017. All charges that were put upon me has been dismissed, and I’m a free man. This man is something special. He told me , “this was an early Christmas gift..” after court lol, so Merry Christmas to Alan and the Peyrouton Law Firm, I appreciate it greatly.

Any honest attorneys left? Yes there are.
I had a recent consult with Alan Peyrouton. After a pretty detailed discussion, I did not hire him because he could not help me with my particular case. But that's the best part about it - his honesty. We have all heard stories where lawyers will just take your money when they know there is a small chance of winning the case. Sometimes, that makes the public not trust lawyers that much, and I am one of those cynical people. However, I found Allen's demeanor, attitude, and knowledge of his topics to be very solid and professional. He was candid about his abilities, and what he could and could not do. He also related a few cases where he had some success when other attorneys didn't. When you get a little older as I am, and learn how to separate the wheat from the chaff, you start to realize when someone is being truthful about themselves, rather than bragging. He impressed me with his candid remarks, honesty and integrity. Based upon that, and my experience speaking with him, I would recommend him.

Best Criminal lawyer!
I was facing serious criminal charges punishable by time in prison. I have consulted several attorneys but was not satisfied with their advice. I was referred to Mr. Peyrouton, by a friend, and hired him to represent me. Mr. Peyrouton explained all my options, was extremely knowledgeable, confident and optimistic. Thanks to Mr. Peyrouton's extraordinary work, my case was resolved and I was placed in probation, instead of going to prison. This result exceeded my expectations. I'll be eternally grateful to Mr. Peyrouton for his magnificent representation.

Great Attorney
I was arrested with enough marijuana on me to put me in jail for two years. I had a 6 month old daughter and wife at home, that rely on me to provide for them. Prison was not an option. Alan assured me that he would do everything possible to make sure that wouldn't happen. Sure enough a few months later, I only received 12 months of probation and a few fines. He is a miricle worker. One of the nicest guys you will ever meet, and always keeps his promises. I would highly recommend him for any legal situation you might find your self in. He might look like "iron man", but when it comes to the court room he is "super man" thanks for everything Alan. God bless you and your loved ones.

I got a DUI. It was my first so I was scared. But he helped me in the whole process. He told me what to do and how to do it. At the end the result was good for me. So if u got a DUI (I hope not), you must contact Mr. Alan Peyrouton

Exceptional Defense Attorney Look No Further He is the One!
From the 1st conversation on the phone I knew he was the one to represent me against a simple assault and harassment charge with a neighbor. In my short experience in seeking an attorney, none presented themselves with such professionalism and thorough knowledge of the law, the court system and attorneys. While one attorney I met asked if I brought the money within 5 minutes of speaking to me. Another wanted me to retain them without a face to face meeting. Alan not only spoke to me on the phone, he made arrangements to meet face to face to discuss my case. In our face to face meeting I never felt pressured as he was approachable, charismatic and considerate of my emotional and financial situation. He spoke of his accomplishments proudly and reassured me not of the outcome of my case but of his expertise in the system and success with similar cases. As soon as he arrived at the courtroom I felt a sense of relief as that is not a place you want to be alone. He knew the security personnel, the prosecutor, and even pinpointed when the judge would be arriving. His confidence put my mind at ease. He warned me prior that it may take several court appearances but would fight alongside me to get the best possible outcome for me. So I was ecstatic to find he accomplished everything in the 1st court appearance. Case was dismissed and charges were dropped. He is extremely good at reading people and knew I was the real victim here so was not willing to have the case go any other way. Once the decision was made to have the charges dropped and we were waiting to go before the judge, he took out a book which demonstrated to me his enthusiasm to better himself in his field. It’s no wonder he has a 9.7 AVVO rating, but in my eyes he deserves a 10 and beyond. He is an honest, down to earth, compassionate attorney who is willing to go the extra mile for his potential and future clients like myself. I would recommend him to everyone I know as it is hard to find a good one whose not out for himself. I’m glad I found him!

Visa and Green Card!
Mr. Peyrouton helped me achieve my United State visa and green card. Now I am on the path to my citizenship. He and his staff are very knowledgeable in immigration law. They kept me and my family informed every step of the way, and they were extremely thorough throughout the process. Whenever a government official reviewed my documents he or she would comment, "Your lawyer did a very good job with your paperwork." From start to finish the process took about 10 months. Mr. Peyrouton's only took and fee after he was certain he could help me with my case. His legal fees are very reasonable. My family and I are very thankful that we had Mr. Peyrouton and his staff as our counsel. P.S. A big Thank You to Agueda, too!

Another chance
Due to Alan taking the time to listen, he was able to guide me in the right direction to make sure I received a chance to do the right thing and stay out of jail/trouble. Thank you!

Kept me out of prison
The minute I walked into Alan's office I felt comfortable and knew I was in good hands. He managed to take burgulary and bring it down into tresspassing charge. I didn't see any prison time and only had to pay a small fine, all which would've been impossible without Iron-Man (Alan's lawyer alter-ego). He was honest and kept me up to date with everything that was going on with my case. If you're in some trouble Iron-man is the super-hero you need. - Herb

We highly recommend Mr. Alan Peyrouton if you are looking for a Honest Knowledgeable Lawyer
If you are looking for an Honest, Knowledgeable Lawyer, we highly recommend Mr. Alan Peyrouton. Our Nephew was detained in Texas and then transferred to the Elizabeth Detention Center in New Jersey. We were not getting any information or any answers from our Texas Lawyer. I had send an email to Mr. Peyrouton and he responded with in minutes back to me asking for us to call his office. I then contacted him and he took his own time to listen and answer questions that I had. Not only that my after I had explained to my husband that night what Mr. Peyrouton had informed me my husband had questions he wanted to ask and Mr. Peyrouton was willing to talk with us a 2nd time and talk with my husband. We are very Thankful to Mr. Peyrouton for giving us this time and talking with us. Mr. Peyrouton if very knowledgeable and very professional in how he answers and presents himself. So from our experience, If you are looking for a strong lawyer who will fight for you and your rights, Mr. Alan Peyrouton is the lawyer you need. We highly recommend him.
