You will need a court order to get past texts for your legal matter from your carrier.

Unfortunately, no 😞 What phone do you have? In the future consider something like MightyText (this is Android only) to back up your text messages to your computer and their cloud. The free version allows for 6 months of keeping messaging, for a fee they will even be stored indefinitely.

It's not on icloud you need to look, but on your computer. Go ahead and download backup bot (http://www.icopybot.com/itunes-backup-manager.htm) and the software will find the backup you need!
Had you backed up the iPhone before you lost the messages? If you have recent iTunes or iCloud backup of the iPhone 5, just restore the iPhone from the backup.
If the backups are not the latest, and the data generated after the backup is also important to you, try to extract the lost messages from the backup files.
If you don’t have any backup of the iPhone, use an iPhone data recovery to recover the deleted messages from the iPhone directly.

Hey Allen! If you have iCloud or iTunes backups of when the iMessages were on your phone, you can restore your iPhone with the backup file.  If so, remember that you will lose any data added to your phone after that backup.  Hope this helps!
