Zachary R. Celeste, Managing Partner

I was born and raised in Beaumont, Texas. I graduated summa cum laude from Lamar University in December 2011, with a B.A. in Accounting, and cum laude from Texas Tech University School of law in May 2015. After being admitted to the Texas Bar in November 2015, I began my career as an associate attorney at the law firm of Wells Peyton Greenberg & Hunt, LLP, now known as Wells Peyton Partain Baldo & Lighty, LLP (“Wells Peyton”). I became a Partner at Wells Peyton in 2019 and have been Managing Partner since 2020. I am a certified mediator and have been honored by Super Lawyers for the years 2023 – 2024.
