Speeding ticket
Really appreciate Mr.Decker and his quick response on my speeding ticket which he was able to keep off of my record. He was able to handle everything and kept communication open during the whole process I would recommend him for anyone dealing with these same issues.

Excellent lawyer!
I hired Mr. Decker way back in 2019 for his family law expertise. I have a complex custody case involving long distance (less than 3 hours), a hostile mother who constantly broke the court order, denied timesharing, restricted communication, and falsely accused me of abuse. She also hired an inexperienced family law attorney whose sole ability appeared to be in the area of delay tactics and borderline unethical behavior. In 2020, during the initial COVID outbreak and logjam in court hearings, Mr. Decker was able to use a little trick to get me a contempt hearing much quicker than normal, which allowed me to see my child sooner. Mr. Decker has 16 years experience as of 2021 and will use every reasonable tactic to help you. His writing skills in his written motions are top notch, and he has a vast array of case laws that he can recall to help with the current problems in your case. He was able to successfully get my ex held in contempt, recover lawyer's fees, and recover make up time. All of this happened outside of his regular Circuit, in front of a new Judge! Mr Decker has gone above and beyond his duties as my lawyer. It has been a long custody battle in the middle of a once-in-a-century pandemic response, but I never felt neglected or uncared for. In fact, quite the opposite. I have always felt like Mr. Decker's most important client. After 2 years of help, I consider him a friend and will forever be grateful for what he has done for me! His whole team has been there for me from the day my child was wrongly taken from me. His assistant, Jeannette was there for me when I was in a panic at another timesharing denial. Mr. Decker was there through email or text whenever I needed. He tried emergency motions, reaching out to the J.A., writing a letter to opposing counsel, everything possible to try and help me. He was EXTREMELY reasonable with fees for the amount of work and help that he and his team provided. We are working together now to finish the job, as Mr. Decker and his team have us set up to go into a custody modification hearing with the best chance possible for success! Thank you to this great group of people, to AJ, Andy, Jeanette, and the whole team at Decker Law!!

Helped get ticket dismissed
I retained Mr. Decker to deal with a traffic ticket I received in Lake City. Mr. Decker was able to help get the ticket dismissed. I feel his fee was reasonable and he and his staff were very professional in the way they handled my matter. I am very pleased with him as an attorney.

Absolutely awesome
My case was a real page turner that seem because of how things was done against me. Everything seemed to slip through cracks and loop holes so that no matter what I tried to do to get in front of my situation I got knocked further back. When I first met AJ he told me that my case was a very unique one and we would have an up hill battle. The man was but never backed down. He went to battle for me on every front he could and yeah we had draw backs along the way that made us have to stop and think about how to proceed next. Each issue that we ran into he would contact me as soon as he could or we would meet to go over the obstacle that was in front of us. My case was a paternity case that involved at now time my 6 year old son who’s matter though I was with for 8 years was still legally married but separated for over 20 years. She decided that it was ok to take my son from me and keep him from me then use her ex husband against me as well. After we fought through all the legal stuff and several hearings later we started making headway on my case. Towards the end after all the phone calls and emails and hearings the opposition finally came to a point to where they no longer had the high ground and starting playing ball. As of now I have my son legally always half the month but none of that would have not been possible with out the help from Andrew Decker. For as long as I live I owe this man a lot he fought beside me and sometimes aline through each and ever battle to make sure that the right thing was done on my behalf and for that my son and I will always be internally grateful!!

I couldn't have retained more competent counsel.
Price for representation = excellent. Professionalism = excellent Communication skills = excellent Outcome (for me) = better then I thought possible I would, without hesitation, recommend Mr Decker. And I'd employ him again myself should that need arise.

I hired Retained Mr. Decker for representation and he literally took care of EVERYTHING.

Traffic Case
Bad judgment and ignorance of the law could have got me time in jail and a large fine plus a record . Andrew Decker must have waived a magic wand because I'm free and clear of all charges. His affordable rates was a big plus for a semi retired senior. Thank you and God Bless
