Barbara Peyton

About me

I love  the law and I love trying to help people.  We try to economize at every point in the case and we take payments once a retainer is paid.  That way people can keep a lawyer's representation and the lawyer (us) can stay in business.



Practice areas


  1. Family: 100%
    37 years, 1 thousand cases



Hourly ($300-350/hour), Retainer (always)

Payment types:

Cash, Check, Credit card
