DWI Dismissed!
I hired Mr. Porter to represent for Driving While Intoxicated First Offense in Georgetown. He came highly recommended from a prosecutor friend and my expectations were exceeded! His office was a pleasure to deal with. Friendly, professional, top notch and results speak for themselves. Thank you, Trey Porter Law! Highly recommend 5/5!

Outstanding
Mr. Trey Porter and team were outstanding. I hired Mr. Porter after a first ever arrest (DUI) in Fredericksburg. I don’t live there, and was only visiting when arrested. It was an ordeal. Fantastic communication. Incredible result. Life is back to normal and this awful incident is behind me. Highly recommend Trey Porter for criminal defense matters.

Protected
Attorney Trey protected my life and reputation. I hired TPL on the recommendation of a colleague that dealt with a similar situation. As a nurse I was concerned my employment and license would be revoked. Attorney Trey Porter got everything sorted out, protected me, and saved my career. I recommend TPL for DWI charges in Austin. 10/10.

Excellent experience
I highly recommend Trey Porter. I had an excellent experience with his office and overall case outcome. The firm has a lot of experience helping nurses, especially dealing with work and board disclosures. I felt confident and comfortable with Mr. Porter and everyone at TPL. They were a lifesaver in a very stressful time for me. My DWI charge is now dismissed and I will be retaining Mr. Porter to expunge my record down the line. I recommend this lawyer and law firm 110%.

Great Austin DUI Lawyer
Mr Porter was my Austin DUI lawyer and he was great. My boss recommended him to me. I made a big mistake and was worried because a conviction would’ve revoked my license. This was my first ever arrest and Mr Porters office made it easy. Great communication - and case was DISMISSED. Thank you TPL. Sincerely, Jackson W.

No Regrets!
What can I say about Trey Porter Law, that everyone else has not? Needing an attorney is never where one wants to be, however, so glad we found Mr. Porter and his team. They were prompt in meeting with us, and kept us informed throughout the process. He was very accommodating, an easy person to speak with and provided reassurance, as did the whole team. They were very professional, prompt, and we were PLEASED. As others have said, I would give a 100 stars if I could! BTW......Ainsely is the best!

Not Guilty!
I hired Attorney Porter for a DWI charge. First ever criminal case in my life. I was scared that I would lose my clearance, which means losing my job. Was so nervous for my kids (8 and 5). Porter was recommended to me by a colleague. From the first call to office I knew I was making the right move. Exceptional communication throughout and the result was frankly unbelievable. This law firm is top tier. I highly recommend Trey Porter.

Future Restored
Mr. Porter saved my career and my future. Last year, I was a college student facing DWI +.15 and fleeing charges, meaning I could have faced prison time, heavy fines and worst of all a permanent stain on my record. Just over a year later and my charges are EXPUNGED, never to be seen again! Trey Porter worked hard to get the best results possible for my case. They guided me through the whole process and told me what I needed to do to tip the scales in my favor. With a conviction, I could have been held back for the rest of my life because of one mistake. But because of Trey Porter my record is completely clean and my future is restored.

Superb - Recommend 10/10
I retained attorney Porter to resolve an intoxication matter for my daughter, a junior at UT. His office was spectacular with communication and response time. Mr Porter was able to explain the issues we were facing to me in a clear and friendly way. His office is currently processing the expunction for the dismissed charge now. Thank you team TPL!

Winning
I won with Attorney Trey Porter! Had a criminal DWI .15 charge, small accident, but no injuries. This was my first criminal charge of my life. Mr. Porter was great to talk to — as was the entire office staff and other attorneys. Everyone was SO NICE! 9 long months passed and my charge was dismissed. No probation. No conviction. This experience was well worth the money. I recommend Trey Porter, Attorney at Law.

Really Thankful!
I hired Mr Porter for a DUI charge. I was in an accident and had a high blood alcohol test. After a phone meeting, I hired Mr Porter on the spot. His entire office was knowledgable and kind and on my side the whole way. My driving privileges are restored and I have no conviction on my record. I am so grateful and thankful for this. I am highly recommending this lawyer.
