A Firm Committed To Legal Excellence And Client Success

Since 1994, the Peyton Law Firm, P.L.L.C., has been offering, dedicated, high-quality legal representation to clients in West Virginia and beyond. Our family-run practice has earned a reputation for client success and for the diversity of our practice areas. These include representation in personal injury and wrongful death, criminal defense, estate planning, workplace injury claims, insurance disputes and more. We have argued cases before the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, the United States Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit and the United States Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit.

We understand that your legal issue is of great importance to you and because of that, we will treat you with the dignity and respect you deserve. One of the founding philosophies of our law firm is that a lawyer is next to no good if he or she doesn’t return phone calls. Our attorneys and staff take pride in being accessible to our clients. We believe superior service is one of the keys to our success. As a client, you can expect to be treated with respect, integrity and truthfulness by each and every member of our firm.
