Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Halleck, Peachy & Billings was one of the leading early law firms in San Francisco, California and specialized in land cases. The firm was organized by Frederick H. Billings and Archibald Carey Peachy in 1849, who were joined soon after by Henry Wager Halleck. Halleck, Peachy & Billings was employed by claimants in the settlement of titles to Mexican land grants. The firm dissolved in 1861 after Halleck returned to military life and left California.
