Constitutional Rights


The United States Constitution stands as the foundational document of the nation, embodying the principles of democracy, governance, and individual liberties. The Constitution’s Preamble sets the tone, affirming the objectives of forming a more perfect union, establishing justice, ensuring domestic tranquility, providing for the common defense, promoting general welfare, and securing the blessings of liberty for people and posterity. 


The first ten amendments to the US Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights, were adopted in 1791 to protect individual liberties and limit the government’s power. These amendments guarantee essential rights and freedoms that have become synonymous with American identity. The enumerated rights include, but are not limited to:

  • Freedom of Speech, Religion, Press, Assembly, and Petition.

  • Right to Bear Arms.

  • Protection against unreasonable searches and seizures.

  • Safeguards from self-incrimination and double jeopardy.

  • The requirement of due process of law, speedy trial, and the ability to confront witnesses.

  • Protection Against Cruel Punishment: The Eighth Amendment forbids excessive bail, fines, and cruel and unusual punishment.


These constitutional rights work collectively to uphold the principle of “innocent until proven guilty,” ensuring that every person accused of a crime is treated justly and given a fair opportunity to defend themselves in the court of law. The constitutional rights of the accused in the United States are essential safeguards designed to protect individuals facing criminal charges

Glowing Client Reviews

Trey is the man! I hired him because I had overheard a county court judge mentioning how awesome of an attorney he is, so if an endorsement from a judge won’t convince you then I’m not sure what will. I sure do hope I never find myself in a pickle ever again but if I do, I would hire Trey in a heartbeat. He’s honest, transparent, doesn’t beat around the bush, and will work tirelessly so that your clean record stays clean and unblemished. 5 stars, highly recommend!


I recently hired Trey Porter Law to help our teenage daughter with a drug charge. In the state of Texas she was being charged as an adult which carried a much stiffer penalty. Trey is very responsive, helpful, knowledgeable and is always available to answer any questions or concerns via phone, text or email. He was able to negotiate on her behalf so it was a pleasant experience. I would highly recommend Trey Porter Law.


Trey really helped me out. He was straight forward and professional, and really helped me in my case. I thought i was going to lose my job, but trey did everything in his power to help me keep my way of life, and still keeps up with me any details on my case.

I really appreciated all he did for me.


Trey is a phenomenal attorney that gets the job done right! He is dedicated to help his clients.

Trey Porter fought for me! I am a nurse and thought my career was over.

Very thankful I got Trey Porter involved. He responds to messages regularly and was very thorough.

He saved my career. Forever grateful!


Mr Porter is the real deal. You get what you pay for these days. I know that from my personal business dealings. Attorney Trey Porter was no different.

He was prompt, professional and poised. I was charged with DWI, and Mr Porter got the charge dismissed. I could not be more pleased or thankful. If you get a DWI, hire the best — hire Trey Porter.
