Excellent service
Mr. Porter is an excellent attorney, when I was falsely accused he quickly came to my defense and calmed a very anxious client who at the time was very concerned about losing my ability to practice medicine. He walked me through the entire process and kept me updated throughout. At the end of the ordeal, he even supplied me with the proper phrasing for future credentialing questions that may arise from the complaint. Hopefully, I never do, however, should I ever find myself in a similar situation I will call him first.

Highly recommended for LMFT board
While I'm sure Mr. Porter is handling multiple clients at the same time, he made me feel like I was his only one. For each of our meetings he was prepared and remembered small details in my case. It was stressful having to deal with a board complaint, but Mr. Porter was kind, understanding, and patiently explained all of my options. He seemed to take a genuine interest in my case and I was so thankful to have him in my corner. I could not recommend him more highly - he is a true professional and great advocate.

Excellent Representation
Mr. Porter provided excellent, efficient, and thorough representation when a complaint was filed against me and several colleagues. He represented us individually and demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of our cases. He was prompt and complete in all of his communications, addressing all questions and concerns that I had. His exhaustive experience in working with licensing boards helped to ease any worries I may have had about the review process and timelines. His work and representation lead to a dismissal of the complaints. Thank you Mr. Porter!!

Excellent-Professional Lawyer for nurses
Mr. Porter took my case in January , 2022 and was extremely kind and very professional right from the beginning. He directed me in replying to emails and questions that were directed to me regarding a false accusation concerning HIPPA. Mr. Porter instructed me on all that was needed for my defense and replied immediately to all that was sent to him and kept me update with all information. Mr. Porter's honesty and shared enthusiasm when my case was dismissed is deeply appreciated. I higly recommend Mr. Porter to anyone and I am so thankful he was recommended to me.

Excellent attorney for medical licensing!
I came to Mr. Porter seeking help for the initial medical licensing in the two most difficult States in the US. He was extremely professional, genuine, knowledgeable, and honest about my case. His communication is top-notch! He even answered questions during his supposed holiday. The advices from him are extremely helpful and logical. Following his excellent counsel, I am able to obtain full medical licenses in two States. I am very grateful to have him with me during one of the most stressful and difficult times!

Highly recommend!
I had a silly complaint filed against me to the BON. I was hesitant to enlist the help of a lawyer since the complaint was so silly and irrational, but I decided to since I did have malpractice insurance. I am so glad I found Mr. Porter! Although he is not a clinician, his understanding of the medical terminology and situation was vital in capturing the essence of the complaint and destroying any validity of it. He complied detailed accounts of numerous witnesses with such thoroughness I could have never provided myself. The board failed to respond for several months and he provided reassurance of the process and followed up repeatedly with them until case was finally dropped. Thank you Mr. Porter!

Mr. Porter gave wonderful advice and he knew my case inside and out. He will forever be my attorney as long as he practices. Thank you Mr. Porter for helping things get back on track.

Amazing Lawyer
I had a complaint filed against my license to the LPC state board and thereafter I hired Jon Porter. Jon is very professional, responsible, and trustworthy. Jon guided me through the entire process and kept me up to date as needed. My case was dismissed by the state board and Jon was on top of the case the entire time. Highly recommended!! Great job!!!

Jon Porter -- my lifeline and hero
Jon Porter represented me in two complaints against my license and both times he was kind, patient, honest, helpful, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Both complaints were dismissed and I credit his expert guidance. I am so thankful for both his professional expertise and personal touch. I highly recommend him to anyone who is defending their license. He was very responsive to my questions and concerns throughout the process and never made me feel like a number. His compassion combined with his skilled expertise helped me navigate two very stressful situations without losing my confidence or my license!

He got the job done.
After almost 3 years of letters and emails back and forth with the Texas LPC Board, I decided to hire a lawyer. I had never hired a lawyer for any reason before this and was very hesitant about it with this situation. However, this is my licensure and my livelihood so I figured I needed the best to see this through. Mr. Porter was the first attorney I consulted and I hired him that day. I did not know that there are lawyers who only represent people with these kinds of allegations on a Texas licensure. He was very thorough in everything he asked of me. He gave me hope when I had no idea what was going on. He communicated well with the Licensing Board and explained the changes in my licensing board in a way that helped me understand where I was in the process. I would very much recommend Mr. Porter to anyone who needs representation for Behavioral Health licenses in Texas. My process was over within 2 months after hiring him and allegations were dismissed. Thank you, Mr. Porter, for all your help.

A Lifeline in the Midst of a Storm
Mr. Porter was the second attorney I hired to assist with a complaint filed against me with the LPC Board. My first attorney offered me little in the way of remedial guidance when it came to things I could do to better position myself with the Board should my case end up in an Informal Settlement Conference. Mr. Porter was exactly the opposite. In fact, it was a bit overwhelming at first when I looked at everything he was requiring of me. However, all of the steps he had me take during the time the Board's investigation took place not only helped me be better prepared, but they actually helped me grow to be a better therapist, as well. If you have a complaint filed against you in Texas, you cannot make a better choice for representation than Mr. Porter. He gave me (realistic) hope in the midst of a very stressful and overwhelming time.

Top choice license defense attorney
I consulted 5 attorneys regarding my case with the Texas medical board prior to meeting Mr. Porter. Within a few minutes of speaking to him on the phone, I knew that I should hire him right away. First, he is very knowledgeable about licensing matters and health care law. Second, he is an intelligent lawyer who will come up a with a good strategy for your case and make the appropriate adjustments each step of the way. Lastly, he is empathetic towards clients, which makes these situations more bearable. If you want the highest chance for the best outcome for your case with the Texas medical board, I would highly recommend Jon Porter.

Jon Porter is knowledgeable, skilled, current on the constantly changing volumes of statutes of Texas State Medical and Mental Health boards—quite a feat in itself—, resourceful, well networked, engaging, calm, patient, logical, a good listener and communicator, realistic but positive, confident, appreciative of his clients’ investments in their work and of being chosen to represent individuals, prompt in responding to clients, an excellent attorney, and has a very dry wit. I am also appreciative of his assistant, Patty, who spells better than either of us, and who deals with insurance and mass quantities of documents. The unsubstantiated complaint against me was dismissed with no disciplinary action—thanks to meticulous preparation and Jon’s ability to navigate the first cases under review by the Texas Behavioral Health Executive Council. A friend and mental health professional referred me to Jon Porter. She hired him several years ago. Her case also was unsubstantiated and dismissed. She found him so helpful that she placed him on retainer so she could call with questions. You will want Jon on your side when your livelihood, profession, reputation, and work you do to improve people’s lives are questioned.

PERFECTION
Hello I'm a Texas Veterinarian licensed in multiple states as well. I contacted Attorney Porter for help regarding an investigation that my name had come up in. He is extremely professional, hard working, dedicated attorney to my case. I complied with everything Attorney Porter requested and he was able to be my angel and get everything resolved regarding my name in the investigation. If you are a licensed Texas Veterinarian (DVM) I strongly recommend retaining Attorney Porter for your case. He is AMAZING and will do everything to restore integrity back into your name. Thank you so much Attorney Porter you were sent from God!

TMB REVIEW
I retained the services of Jon at the recommendation of a colleague, he helped me through a bogus complaint that was filed by the hospital which lead to an investigation by the TMB. The process lasted 18 months, Jon was there for me anytime I needed his help . He is very calm in his demeanor and well versed in the rules and regulations. My case was dismissed at the ISC . I hope no one has to go through this but if you need help Jon is the right person .

His extensive knowledge of administrative law has allowed him to represent a diverse group of healthcare professionals before their respective licensing authorities. Above all else, Jon forms a professional relationship with each of his clients, and truly cares about the outcome. Jon is frequently called upon to be an expert speaker across the U.S. on various subjects related to healthcare issues such as medical record keeping, risk management, and patient boundaries.

"I knew this lawyer before law school when he was a young licensure analyst at the Texas Medical Board. I also dealt with him when he was hired as an attorney at the Texas Medical Board and moved up into senior leadership positions. As a defense attorney, I found him to be a reasonable man at a tough agency. When he left the agency for private practice, I was eager to see if he wanted to join the firm I helped create. He is incredibly smart, extremely articulate, seemingly tireless, and undeniably ethical. Glad he is on my side of the docket. One of the very best in the business."
