Very great/helpful lawyer
Marc helped me with removing a Possession of controlled substance charge off of my record with ARD. He was very insightful and helpful with answering all my questions last year. When I received my background check for a new job, there was nothing on the report ! 10/10 recommend

Great lawyer and person
Great lawyer. I can see why he has all positive reviews. He will answer calls and he doesn’t judge. He realizes people are human and make errors. I would recommend him for duis, or alcohol related criminal offenses. As he has helped me with poor drunk decisions that led me into legal trouble. But he has helped me tremendously. He is extremely well versed in the law. His prices are great compared to lawyers with his experience and results. He won’t try to take you to the bank, and will not take your money and run, never to answer a call. He also won’t lead you like a blind sheep into the courts and get hammered. He will work what’s best for your case, whether it’s a guilty plea, or a trial. I will hire him again, ( hopefully I won’t need to), but I would recommend. I have good friends that are lawyers and not as witty as this guy. I would hire him. And I give good, and bad reviews on here, and he is one of the good. He will answer you right back, I would recommend to anyone in the center county center pa region.

Excellent Defense and Appellate Attorney
Marc Decker has been my lawyer for almost three years now and he has successfully helped me through the hardest time in my life. He offered excellent consultation and represented me with an upright zeal through a PFA hearing and the subsequent appeal, which we rightfully won. I would recommend Marc Decker to anyone in need of his services.

Fantastic Lawyer!
Marc Decker is a fantastic lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone. I was recently accused of allegations of abuse which could have impacted my career beyond saving. I reached out to Marc and his availability, professionalism, and dedication to my case were incredible. He offers a free consultation and is available at your convenience.

Incredibly Approachable and Reliable
I was charged with not obeying traffic control devices, specifically a stopped bus with its stop sign out. Marc Decker helped me receive the best possible outcome. He was prompt, consistently available, affordable, and was incredibly approachable with all of my questions. He genuinely cared about my case and wellbeing. He worked around my schedule for when I was available and was in depth and caring in his explanations of what was going on. I could not recommend someone more.

Alcohol-related Offenses
My daughter was charged with a few alcohol-related offenses. Marc handled them professionally and efficiently, and ultimately got her record expunged of these charges.

"Super" State College PA - Great Guy
My son is a freshman and received an underage drinking summons. I started to understand what it all meant and led me to believe it can be ugly for him and his future endeavors. I searched for a few local top lawyers and reach out to one of the best. He was quite busy with other cases, had to prioritize his work and could not take our situation on. He was kind enough to offer up a referral. It was Marc Decker! Wow! What a referral! His response time was lightening fast and he educated my son, wife and I on what this all meant. We hired him quickly. He led us though the process, and when we were all done, my son's future was shinning bright again. I must say he offered such great advice to my son. A solid 10 coming from a NYC business executive. Thank you Marc! Well Done!

What a Great Lawyer !!!
Marc had represented me in a DUI license suspension. I was awaiting my OLL from PennDot and even though I hadn't received my camera card I thought I was ok to drive to my job since my information from Penn dot was on the way. I was pulled over on my way to work and was completely devastated. I am a substitute teacher and not having a license is very hard With my type of job. After being pulled over I knew I needed immediate representation for my case . I could have went to jail for this offense. Marc was excellent when he represented me in court . He made sure all the paperwork that was needed was in place and he was very professional with the judge and the officer. He knew that being a mother of two kids , a teacher and a part time waitress that I could not go to jail for this mistake . He was excellent !! As a result I served no jail time , no house arrest, and my license was suspension never got extended which I thought was going to happen anyway. I walked away paying a $25 fine plus court costs . I was very fortunate and lucky and would recommend Marc to represent you . He will definitely make it worth your while !!

Excellent and personalized support!
I hadn't seen Marc in over a year since I originally was in need of legal services and he approached me and greeted me by name after only meeting me a handful of times. It was a memorable gesture to me that he would remember such a small detail in his busy schedule. Marc was absolutely the best when it came to dealing with my legal problems, working in a timely fashion and around my unpredictable schedule. I would recommend Marc to any of my associates or family who were ever in need of legal counsel.

Excellent communication and attentive
Marc walked me through the process in laymen's terms so that I could understand a pretty confusing process, and as a result I wasn't surprised by any of the steps in the process. He stays in touch and gets back to you almost instantly. At no point did I feel alone during my court process. Thanks Marc.

Excellent Lawyer - Hire Marc Decker!
Marc worked with me on a case, attended to every question, concern, or thought I had. He made sure to look over the case thoroughly and didn't miss any details. He was honest with me and made sure I was pleased. When we went to court, he won the case hands down! Such a funny, incredible lawyer. I would recommend Marc to anyone!

Saved my life!
Marc Decker is the greatest lawyer I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He helped me fight a case that was looking down a pretty dark path for my future. Fourtunatley he was able to get my record expunged so I can now proceed on the right path for my life and improve myself to provide a great future for myself. Wouldn't have traded any lawyer in the world for Marc, always ready on the phone to answer any questions or advice you may need. I highly recommend his service.

Help with Speeding Ticket
Marc was extremely helpful in getting a speeding violation resolved for me. He was thorough, extremely conscientious and professional. Most importantly, his efforts with local law enforcement resulted in a resolution which reduced the number of points that I would receive on my driver's license. Otherwise, I would have had to retake my driving test for Pennsylvania, and additionally my parents might have had to drop me from their insurance. I would recommend him highly!! We are so glad we hired him!! Now I can get back to being a student without this hanging over my head. Thanks Marc.

Outstanding
If you are in need of an attorney, Marc is an exceptional one at that and highly recommended. Not only is he extremely educated in regards to the judicial system, he takes the time to sit with you and explain the processes/steps necessary. I was extremely nervous the outcome after having been convicted of a DUI in the spring of 2014, however Marc handled the case with the upmost respect and professionalism. Furthermore, my DUI is now expunged off my record and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. He is a candid human being and as previously mentioned HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!!

Most helpful!
I contacted Marc after my daughter had been cited by Penn State police for underage drinking. She was a freshman, badly handled by the police and shaken to the core. Not only did Marc admirably handle our case, and get it totally expunged, but his calm demeanor and professionalism helped us throughout the ordeal. He met with the police with us, explained the procedures and provided much needed guidance and support. His follow-up was also most professional and thoughtful. I highly recommend him!!

Excellent Attorney!
Marc is an exceptional attorney! Aside his expertise with the law, he is a very compassionate man. In a time of need and of desperation, not knowing my rights, Marc made every effort to calm the situation and always explained what his next steps would be. He is very professional with much integrity. He said he would come meet with me at the jail, at said hour he was there. My family and I are very blessed to have met him. Thank you Marc! You are the best!

Highly recommend
Trust me when I say that Marc is the man you want representing you. The most honest, sincere, and personally invested attourney in State College. When the bigger names in the business turned me away because they were too busy, Marc not only took my case, he spent hours of his time, in person, working with me. I couldn't believe the flat rate he offered for so much work. You can tell that Marc is "one of the good guys" in a world of attorneys that care more about your money than the outcome of your case. He is working hard and honestly to make a name for himself and you can tell that it's happening from my review and all the others like it.
