Hiring a Lawyer Won’t Drain a Holiday Budget
Having a car accident at any part of the year is a life-disrupting event. Hospital bills and the cost of car repairs can put a strain on any bank account. That stress can be compounded if you’re worried about holiday gift or vacation budget as well. If you’re worried about adding legal fees to a growing pile of bills, we’re here to offer good news: it costs nothing to call The Decker Law Firm.
Get a Free Consultation
We offer free consultations, during which you can discuss your situation, decide if you have a claim, and learn about your potential client-attorney relationship. We will be fair and honest with you regarding our opinion of your case. And if you decide after a consultation that legal action is not right for you, we completely understand.
No Fee Increases for Filing Suit
We are paid on a “contingency” fee basis, which means there is no fee unless your case is successful. If the other party decides not to settle and it becomes necessary to file suit, many law firms will increase their fee. We are proud to say that at The Decker Law Firm, we do NOT increase our fee. It’s fixed whether we settle, file suit, or take your case to trial.

Our mermaid spotlight this quarter rests next to the sea at the picturesque Pagoda downtown. Mei Madeline created by artist, Marysharon Melchiorre, has seen many ships come in and out of the Chesapeake Bay, seen ownership change at the Pagoda, and hosted Pokemon Go fans on their quest to be the very best.

Pumpkin BBQ Sauce
This BBQ sauce pairs great with grilled chicken or pork chops. It also is great with slow cooked pork shoulder or brisket! Not to mention the smell will make any kitchen feel like fall in minutes!

- 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp mustard powder
- 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 tsp sea salt

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a low boil over medium heat and reduce to heat to low. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Once the sauce has thickened, remove from heat and transfer to a mason jar. This sauce can be stored up to a week in the refrigerator.
