Peyton Z. Peebles III has represented litigants in complex cases for over twenty years. Unlike most civil lawyers, Peyton began his law career as an Assistant District Attorney in Houston, Texas—one of the most populated areas of the nation. In this trial-by-fire atmosphere, Peyton learned how juries receive evidence and which arguments resonate with them. While at the DA’s Office, Peyton attended the police academy at night, graduated at the top of his class, and learned the tools employed by law enforcement to investigate cases. He is known for his creativity in working up cases, often employing strategies other lawyers wouldn’t think about. In addition to trial work, Peyton has distinguished himself in Texas and Federal appellate courts as a detailed, thorough, and analytical appellate lawyer. He has personally authored more than 350 appellate briefs, has argued multiple times before Texas’s highest appeals court, and has twice briefed cases in the United States Supreme Court. The skillset necessary to succeed at this level proves invaluable when pursuing complex civil litigation. Peyton previously served on the State Bar Committee for the Texas Rules of Evidence. In that capacity, he analyzed proposed changes to our rules of evidence, drafted amendments to various rules, and made recommendations to the Texas Supreme Court. Peyton also spent two years as a liaison with the Texas Legislature, advising various legislators and other entities on the impact of proposed legislation.
Peyton graduated from the University of Florida and the University of Houston law school. When not working, he volunteers time serving in various local and national organizations. He enjoys kayaking with his wife, a retired deputy sheriff, and their two English Springer Spaniels.
