With 30 years experience, including Briefing Attorney for the Court of Appeals, and many years practicing in Houston as a tall building lawyer, you can be assured there is little I haven't seen and handled. 

I am proud to have attended Eastland High, The University of Texas at Austin, and Texas Tech School of Law. I am a member of the College of the State Bar of Texas and Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. Finally, I am a Mediator in civil and family matters. 

I am constantly seeking to improve my trial skills and was proud to have been selected to attend the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyer College, with some of the finest attorney's in the country. If you are not continually learning and improving, you are going backwards. Common is not acceptable, average is not acceptable. We strive to provide excellent representation. 

Having grown up in Eastland, and practiced in this area for over 15 years, I know the people and the lay of the land. 

We have offices in both Eastland and Breckenridge to better serve our clients. Our practice is a typical small town practice handling a variety of cases, but the majority are of course family, criminal, personal injury and debt collection defense.

Wasn't sure if I actually needed an attorney for my son. Gary and Tiffany took the time to consult with me on the issue. Their compassion and understanding were amazing. They truly seemed to care about my issue. I offered to pay them for their time and they quickly declined and stated that they were just happy that everything turned out good for all involved. I highly recommend Gary and his staff.

On the mark
I consulted with Gary regarding a divorce & child custody issue. He was spot on with his advice and very helpful. I subsequently sent him an email [after the call], which he responded promptly too. Gary is professional, considerate and an astute attorney. Would recommend him.

Phenomenal Lawyer
After being concerned on how to handle a civil matter, I contacted Gary. Not only was he professional but very helpful and informative regarding my situation. He provided help in a very quick time frame and I have full confidence I made the right choice in going to him as opposed to anyone else.

Gary's Review
Great person, and handled several real estate cases for me in Eastland County, Tx. One was for specific performance of a contract for 250 Acres of ranch land. We were successful in every instance. Will use him again if the occasion occurs.

The most reasonable rates and highest attention to detail. Gary Peak helped me save over 4K in an auto finance transaction.
This attorney helped me save over 4K in an auto finance transaction with minimal out of pocket expense to me. I will continue to seek assistance from this higly accessible, very effective lawyer. I have worked administratively in the legal feild for over 17 years. I have observed Mr. Gary Peaks law practice to be a small, yet a thriving and expanding business. This attorney strives to give individual attention to each of his cases. I have found this attorney to hold very high standards in his practice yet he keeps his legal fees extremely low. Amazingly Mr. Peaks attorney billing rate is one of the most reasonable rates (in nearly all of Texas) that I have found, while still giving the highest attention to detail! I definitly recommend this lawyer. I will personally and for my business use his services over and over again.

Gary D. Peak
If you want a lawyer that is going to be straight forward, honest, trust worthy, and inderstanding then Gary D. Peak should be at the top of your list. He helped me and believed in me. He saw something that didn't quite add up and wanted to take my case to the jury. However a few days before I had called Gary in tears. I was so stressed out and overwhelmed I was having a break down. He helped me calm down, he said it's not easy to pull the trigger on making the right choice. He gave me advise. Gary has helped my family as well. He's awesome at what he does and he knows what he's doing. Thank you Gary

Gary is a great lawyer. Has always been there when I needed him. He is such a good guy that when my mother in law couldn't get a divorce he helped her do it. I go to him for all my legal stuff. I recommend him to everyone. He has been a blessing in our lives.

Success in the Courtroom
Mr. Peak gave the most amazing case for me. He did his homework, asked the questions diligently, persuasively , and we were victorious in the courtroom. My grandson's life changed for the better. I cannot begin to cover everything Mr. Peak did, but I could not have had a more professional, sincere, and trustworthy fighter in my corner. He knows how to effectively use the knowledge he has to fight the fight and WIN!

Humanitarian and Attorney
As a translator for Attorney Gary Peak, I saw the work he did for his clients. He is a respectable and hard working attorney. I even used him for my divorce as a reviewer for my paperwork. Not only did he show me what was missing but he helped me through a tough procedure. His dedication to his clients affairs only emphasize the quality of work he does.
