Hands down the BEST
Being on edge and anxiety ridden.. Not only did Mr. Akers listen to EVERYTHING I had to share, unlike other lawyers who did not, he is very thorough and caring with his work. He gave me reassurance and confidence in my cases, and gave my children and myself safety from harm. Mr. Akers and his team are very responsive and will answer any questions you may have! To receiving my protective order, to my custody case, after years I finally feel at peace knowing my babies and I are safe. When in doubt, Akers & Cleators Law Group for the win!

Empathetic and upfront
I absolutely was devastated when my daughter was allegedly accused of a crime that could have destroyed her future. This lawyer was a true professional. He was honest, upfront and very knowledgeable. The best part was that he COMMUNICATED!!!! Not very many court appointed lawyers actually fight for you nevertheless communicate with you as much as possible. He made me change my outlook on court appointed attorneys and hopefully i never will need another but if i do I will definitely be calling him.

Effective and Honest! The absolute best lawyer !
We have all heard the stories about attorneys and I do believe that most if them are not to be blindly trusted and that they are way overpriced for the service they provide.HOWEVER, PEYTON AKERS has retired my faith that there are some great men who choose legal careers. From the moment I met him, he was up front with me about the complexities of the matters I wanted him to handle and in the same breath, he told me he could handle everything and achieve the best possible results. He far exceeded my expectations. His services were affordable and most importantly, he made me confident that I was in great hands. I cannot imagine using anyone else for the legals needs of my family and my business. This man is the best attorney in town .

A true pleasure to work with
Mr. Akers came highly recommended from a friend, and I can only agree with my friend's assessment. Mr. Akers went above and beyond my expectations for researching case studies to assist with my defense. He maintained regular contact with me and kept me up to date with the progress after my case. His diligence and expertise put my mind at ease, and even secured a dismissal for my case. I couldn't be happier and would highly recommend him to others.

Awesome Lawyer!
I highly recommend this law firm. Mr. Peyton was very knowledgeable. The way that my family and I were greeted and treated made us feel like very important clients. He took consideration for all of my cares and concerns. Mr. Peyton's attention has allowed me now to focus on healing and recovery. May God continue to bless Mr. Peyton and his law firm!

Do Not Recommend At All!!!
This attorney had my case for 7 months and I was recently told to come to his office in order to file my case with the courts. When I arrive to his office he tells me that I do not have a case. It took this very unprofessional attorney 7 months that I do not have a case or that he does not feel comfortable moving forward. For 7 entire months he was very confident in my case. A total waste of time, horrible communication and I highly do not recommend this attorney to no one at all. Stay away and do yourself a favor.
