You want this man in your corner!
Mr Porter is an excellent technician of the law. He also represents his clients best interests in every sense of the word. He delivers accurate, "big picture" perspective and provides the no nonsense strategies in representing his client's interests. He has a quick wit and wonderful gift to set his client's fears to rest during those first visits. His questions are on point and his attention to detail gave me confidence in his abilities as an attorney. Without specifics, my case which lasted over a year before it settled. Mr. Porter was steadfast, and resolved that we would prevail in a very tough case. His calm and self-confident demeanor was one of the things which encouraged me throughout the entire case. He gave me clear and unambiguous counsel and advice to kept me well informed over the entire period. He is very good at reading the "tea leaves" of correspondence regarding the case! Would I use him again, absolutely, in a heart-beat! You want this man in your corner!

East Texas Should Be Proud to Call Gregory Porter One of Their Own
Greg Porter is representing our family in three unique discrimination cases that involves a common employer. Our initial phone conversation with Mr. Porter immediately set us at ease as he explained the approach he would like to take to resolve these individual issues. With each meeting, we have been reassured that he is paying attention to the specific needs of each family member. Mr. Porter is prompt with his response to our questions both through phone conversations and through e-mails. He reviews personal documents quickly and always provides appropriate feedback. His willingness to resolve these situations with the least disruption to our family and his genuine concern for additional problems is reassuring. Greg is extremely patient as our family considers options that he has recommended and his ability to listen and really hear our concerns sets him apart from other lawyers. We have never felt rushed or that our case is not important to him. His extensive knowledge base and history in the courtroom assure us that our needs are being met under his expert leadership.

Legal Counsel
Mr. Gregory Porter was extremely professional, yet very personable when I hired him to advise me regarding a contract for the sale of my business. He took the time to ask me a lot of questions so that he could fully understand my concerns and my expectations. He was very thorough and concise in his explanations to me regarding the law, and I felt that he was truly an advocate for me in my negotiations. I would definitely recommend him in the future to family and friends who need legal advice and/or representation.

Very Nice Man
Greg is such a nice man. He was very thorough and confident. My only disappointment was that I was told we were going for one thing and at mediation it was changed to a much lower amount that we were supposed to be starting with.

I genuinely appreciate the feedback as I am always open to constructive criticism. I would like the chance to speak with you about this personally so I can improve my practice. Please call me if you would like to discuss.
