Meet Your Attorneys

Jeff Peek grew up in Austin and graduated from University of Texas before moving briefly to San Antonio to earn his J.D. at St. Mary’s University School of Law in 2000. He returned to Austin to practice criminal defense law but put his practice on pause to travel to Mexico and absorb the language and culture during an 8-month stay. He returned to Austin in 2002 and began to immerse himself in the practice of immigration law. He earned the nickname “El Abogado Guero que Habla Español” from his clients. He’s spent hours in and out of the courtroom fighting for justice, for his clients’ rights, and for Austin’s immigrant community.

Steve Toland is a Texas native who discovered his passion for the law while working at an entertainment law firm in Los Angeles. He attended St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, which afforded him the opportunity to attend the Institute for Mexican Legal Studies, and serve as a law clerk at a Mexican law firm. Upon returning to the U.S., Steve served as a judicial clerk for the Honorable Edward C. Prado, then U.S. District Judge for the Western District of Texas in San Antonio. After graduation, Steve tried numerous cases as the Assistant Attorney General for the State of Texas under then Texas Attorney General John Cornyn. Steve went into private practice in 2007, committing himself to defending clients at the state and federal level. He maintains membership with several celebrated professional organizations and is an active member of the community.

Trusted by Austin’s Immigrant Community

In 2010, Jeff Peek and Steve Toland formed Peek Toland & Castañeda PLLC, with the goal of providing Austin’s immigrant community with dedicated, effective, and ethical legal representation. Since then, our firm has handled hundreds of cases across the spectrum of immigration law. We’ve worked with businesses on corporate visas, and with individuals on family visas. We’ve fought for our clients in deportation hearings and advised corporate clients in international business transactions. We have used our experience in criminal defense law to help immigrants with the unique difficulties they may face during criminal proceedings. The attorneys at Peek Toland & Castañeda provide clients with seasoned representation in immigration law and criminal defense.

We Focus on Immigration Law

Although hundreds of Austin-area law firms list immigration law as a part of their practice, many center their practices on areas outside of immigration law. It’s true that many local lawyers pick up the occasional immigration case, but those firms lack the focus and experience needed to navigate the complexities of Austin’s ever-changing immigration-law minefield.

Our attorneys have represented clients in a many complex immigration and criminal defense issues, such as issues with citizenship and naturalization, permanent residency, family visas, victim visas, deportation hearings, investor visas, employment-based visas, or representing immigrants with criminal backgrounds, or criminal proceedings. In 2014, Jeff Peek became one of only sixteen attorneys in Travis County to be Board Certified in Immigration and Nationality Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, demonstrating both his commitment to and excellence in helping immigrants get fair treatment. Our team will provide you with the strong, dependable representation you need when you need it.

Spanish-Speaking Attorneys Who Understand Your Needs

We’ve focused specifically on immigration law and on providing criminal defense to a community that is often underserved.
