Excellent Attorney
Absolute best attorney I have ever worked with. He actually cares about your time just as much as he cares about his own! It is very rare to find an attorney nowadays that truly cares about their clients needs! He was extremely quick and efficient. He did an amazing job at replying to any questions I had in a timely manner as well! I highly highly highly recommend using Myles Porter if you ever need an attorney in Fannin county! Worth EVERY penny! He made everything super easy and stress free!

Great Attorney
Myles is great! He’s almost always able to work with me via email, texting, and over the phone! I love that he makes most things convenient. His legal advise is always spot on. He’s well respected and always very professional in court.

I used Myles to help me get squatters out of my rental property. He is very knowledgeable, very responsive and did a great job for me in a short amount of time.

Myles did an excellent with both my divorce and criminal cases. He was able to get some charges dropped and the other resolved with deferred adjudication.

Excellent Attorney!
I hired Myles to represent me in a family law case with my ex. Myles always answered all my questions directly, and was always up-front and honest with me about what we were dealing with and what the outcomes could be, even when it wasn't what I wanted to hear. I trusted Myles to make the best decisions for me and my children and, in less than 6 months, he accomplished everything I'd asked for. I could not be happier with the work he did for our family and will recommend him every chance I get.

Great advice!!
He answered all of my questions in a specific, clear way. He also didn't talk down to me, he spoke to me on the same level and took the time to explain everything. I always recommend Myles to anyone needing legal advice or help!

I sought attorney services with Myles Porter after I was arrested in June 2010 for DWI with open container and Possession of a Dangerous Drug. I Hired Myles because he was the former DA of Fannin County and I knew he was well respected in the judicial community. I am so glad I chose Myles Porter as my attorney. He negotiated well on my behalf and was able to get the DWI dismissed breaking down the DA's case one step at a time and left no stone uncovered. The breath analyzer didn't work because it malfunctioned, no video because it malfunctioned, no 911 witnesses and no 911 video recording. In the end Myles told the DA we were going to take my case to trial and WITHIN 3 hours of Myles meeting with the DA, the DA decided to totally dismiss my DWI charges. One important point is I submitted at the time of arrest a blood toxic screen so with the evidence the DA had made my case more of a challenge for Myles. By the time I walked into court, I was confident knowing Myles had already arranged a great deal for me regarding the Possession of a Dangerous Drug and my fine was a mere fourth of what it would have been without having anyone other than Myles Porter by my side as my attorney. He saved my life, not just my professional career by fighting for me until the end and getting this DWI dismissed. He Listened to my request in the beginning and knew in the end I wanted him to do whatever he could to get this DWI removed and how important it was to me. I felt Myles genuinely cared about my case as if he was fighting for himself or a family member and not just another client. I got the impression, feeling and the results that show and prove he fought for me and cared about my case. In past I have had a few dealings with attorneys and was always skeptical about all attorneys because I was always left with the feeling all they cared about was the money and not my case. Myles Porter from the first consultation I had with him, I never got that impression and knew from the beginning I Was not JUST A dollar sign or another client but that my case mattered to him and he would fight vigorously for me. He was always available for my many questions I had and always answered my many calls and emails within the hour. I highly recommend his services and will never use or recommend anyone other than Myles Porter..
