Recovering text messages

I received text messages from someone three years ago I would like to use in a courtcase, is there anyway to recover them?

Only if it’s still on your phone or you have a backup. ATT doesn’t have them.

If there is no backup of the text messages, try to use Coolmuster Android SMS + Contacts Recovery to scan your phone. Before that, you need to (Edited per community guidelines) your phone. If the text messages can be scanned out, you can recover them back easily. If no, its impossible to recover them back.
