Trusted by Austin’s Immigrant Community

In 2010, Austin attorneys Jeff Peek and Steve Toland formed Peek and Toland, and in 2017 joined forces with Salvador Castañeda to form Peek Toland & Castañeda PLLC, with the goal of providing Austin’s immigrant community with dedicated, effective, and relentless legal representation.

Since our inception, our firm has handled thousands of cases in immigration law. We’ve worked with businesses to attain employment visas for their employees, with investors seeking to infuse the U.S. economy and grow their business through an investor visa, and with individuals and families seeking guidance on the often complicated family-based immigration process.. Our experience is vast – we’ve fought for our clients in deportation hearings, advised corporate clients in international business transactions and used our experience in criminal defense law to help immigrants through the unique difficulties they may face during criminal proceedings.

If you are or know an immigrant or a foreign business or investor facing legal difficulties or looking for answers to your legal questions, look no farther than the attorneys at Peek Toland & Castañeda PLLC. We serve clients throughout Central Texas and in the Houston area, with offices in Austin and The Woodlands.

We Focus on Immigrants & 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 challenges, including issues with citizenship and naturalizationpermanent residencyfamily visasvictim visasdeportation hearingsinvestor visasemployment-based visas, criminal proceedings, and representing immigrants with criminal backgrounds.

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 before the law. Our team of lawyers will provide you with the strong, dependable representation you need when you need it.

Spanish-Speaking Immigration Attorneys Who Understand Your Needs

Even more than our experience, focus, and skill, what sets us apart above all is that we’ve built our practice around the needs of Austin’s Spanish-speaking immigrant community.

Our practice is proudly bilingual with all staff members fluent in Spanish and English and all communications and resources offered in both languages. We don’t just work with Austin’s immigrant population; we’re members of the same community. Although often underserved, we’ve focused specifically on providing immigration and criminal defense legal services to our community. Austin is our home, and we’re committed to making sure you, as our neighbor, have access to the legal representation you deserve.

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 countless 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, who was 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 actively involved in Austin’s immigrant community.
