Larry served our clients since 1976 in various legal fields including personal injury, criminal defense, and traffic defense. His exploits outside of work span an equally impressive range, from meeting celebrities like Muhammad Ali, securing several weightlifting world records, world traveling, and even wrestling Pete Decker Jr., the firm’s founder. And in February of 2019 we said a fond farewell to Larry as he moved into retirement. Thank you Larry for all that you have done. Larry’s tremendous work ethic and energy will always be remembered and embodied by those who worked with him at The Decker Law Firm.
