Extremely Pleased
Mrs. Decker is very knowledgeable, personable, and efficient. She professionally guided me through my divorce, and made the entire process a smooth and less stressful experience than I anticipated. Her staff went above and beyond to support me. One thing that really supported me was getting an itemized bill each month with very reasonable fees. I was never shocked or felt cheated when I received a bill. Also, when I call or email Mrs. Decker or her staff, they respond immediately, and they are all very helpful. I would definitely use Mrs. Decker again if needed. In fact, I'm meeting with her to complete my will and to get some guidance on another issue. Please call Ami Decker's office if you want to have a professional experience with an attorney who exudes compassion.

Amazing Women
Hiring a lawyer, for any reason, is a scary thing. Mrs. Decker and Mrs. Kerr were extremely helpful and professional. Always kept me in the loop as things were happening and always looked for the best outcome for me. She made an over helming situation feel so easy and I appreciated that.

Highly satisfied
Ms. Decker and her assistant Ms. Kerr were very supportive, knowledgeable, effective, articulate and helpful working through a contested divorce to a satisfactory divorce quickly. I appreciate the help, advice and support they gave me. I highly recommend.

Amazing!!!!
I have never felt so comfortable and nurtured by an attorney in my life, or ever for that matter. Ami was warm, caring, honest, (YES! you read that right!) intelligent and didn't fill me with a bunch of political and bureaucratic crap that I didn't need or want to hear. I felt welcome and invited. The best way to describe it was that it felt like somebody was genuinely trying to help me and not just take my money. That was her last concern. Ami analyzed and sifted through all the facts of my case and we were caught in a meaningful and helpful conversation before I knew it. There is not enough words to describe my appreciation to this lady. She helped me in more ways than she could know. We have all "dealt" with attorneys before, but with this one, you won't have to. Thank you , Ami. Nathan

Family Attorney | Mar 12
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have worked on cases with Ami many times over the last few years. She has always been professional and it was never difficult to work with her. She was always prepared and demonstrated a good knowledge of Family Law."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Jan 03
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Ami Decker is a talented, clear advocate for her clients. She also puts reasonability at the forefront of her mind and understands that not every case needs to be hotly contested. She certainly can hold her own in ugly cases, and always presents her clients to the Court with dignity in all respects. She consistently has done the best she can with ugly facts, often working with opposing counsel to keep the parties' matters private. I endorse Ami, without reservation."
Family Attorney | Sep 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Mrs. Decker is an excellent attorney. She has a broad knowledge of the law and offers practical, level-headed advice."
Family Attorney | Aug 23
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Ami Decker is one of above average family lawyers that has the optimal mix of compassion and intelligence. Her courtroom demeanor is outstanding and because she is so professional, she is extremely effective in both negotiation and litigation. She serves her clients well and is well respected in the family law community."
Family Attorney | Aug 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Ms. Decker is a highly qualified, trustworthy, and respected attorney in the legal field. Ms. Decker was an opposing attorney in a family law matter and I found Ms. Decker to be competent and reasonable in our settlement conference. Ms. Decker's first priority is to her clients and that is why she will attempt to settle a case prior to trial in order to save a client thousands of dollars in trial preparation. However, if Ms. Decker is unable to settle a case, she will be fully prepared for trial. Ms. Decker also attends continuing legal education seminars each year in order to keep up with the ever changing laws of the State of Texas. I would recommend Ms. Decker to any individual seeking representation in court."
Family Attorney | Jul 12
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Very professional, courteous and knowledgeable attorney. Advocates very strongly for her clients yet remains congenial during the process. Ami is a very good lawyer."
