When Peter Decker, Jr. (1936-2012) started practicing law, he had only one goal in mind: Helping people.
Mr. Decker’s priority for his law firm was always people–not power, position, influence or profits. That single, simple goal of helping people has guided the growth of Decker, Cardon, Thomas, Weintraub & Neskis, PC over the years, making the law firm one of the best-known and most-respected law firms in Norfolk today.
Each of The Decker Law Firm’s employees is regarded as a friend and treated with respect and concern. Most importantly, every member of the staff–attorneys and support staff alike–shares Mr. Decker’s priority of helping people. If prospective employees don’t share this priority, they’re not even considered.
By any standard, this is a successful law firm. Peter Decker, Jr.’s commitment to people, however, means that the benchmarks by which we measure our own success are not what some might expect. For over fifty years, this firm has measured victory against defeat by whether or not it got the best possible result for our client.
When all is said and done, our interests are served only by serving the interests of the people who have trusted us to help them…our clients.
