Do You Have a Personal Injury or Other Legal Problem? Bring It to Us.
The Peyton Law Firm handles a wide array of legal issues involving personal injury, disability, criminal matters, real estate and family law. Although we have an established reputation as a formidable litigation law firm, we also see ourselves as attorneys for our local community. This means that we treat our clients and neighbors with respect and professionalism, whatever their legal need.
Our West Virginia law firm was founded more than three decades ago by Harvey D. Peyton Esq. The firm now includes Mr. Peyton’s wife, who works on the staff, and his son, Thomas H. Peyton, who joined the firm as an attorney almost 10 years ago.

Disability and Retirement Claims
When a person becomes disabled and unable to work full time, different government or private insurance programs provide a monthly stipend. The most commonly known programs are Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) and Supplement Security Income (SSI). Often, people’s first claims for SSDI or SSI benefits are unsuccessful. We give legal help with disability insurance appeals. We also represent individuals who run into roadblocks trying to get access to their government or private retirement benefits.
Life Insurance Claims
Insurance companies are in the business of making money, not paying out claims. When deceitful insurance practices or unsubstantiated reasons result in your denied life insurance claim, we are here to help.
Our law firm has handled every type of criminal case, from drug possession through first-degree murder. The old saying, “Better safe than sorry” applies in all criminal cases — the defendant who hires a lawyer as early as possible almost always has a better chance at a positive outcome.
Wills and Trusts
We write wills, trusts, powers of attorneys and health care directives for clients. We also will handle probate or estate administration, if asked, and can represent an estate or a proposed beneficiary in any type of will contest or estate litigation.
We write and review all types of residential real estate documents, including purchase agreements, deeds and land-sale contracts.
We are very selective, but we do help people with family law problems, including divorce proceedings and modifications of child support orders.
