Meet Andrew Gerkin & Ryan Decker


Gerkin and Decker share a love of the region and understand the business and community climate as only people born and raised in a locale can. They also share an uncompromising work ethic and a common vision of what a law practice should be.

"We believe that a law practice needs to deliver honesty, first and foremost. We have a partnership with our clients providing them a valuable service. Each individual issue is important in a person's life, and we treat it that way. By focusing on the service aspect, going paperless as much as possible, and utilizing the most efficient technologies and processes, we can keep our ancillary costs down. Our clients pay for our knowledge and our help, not paperwork and overhead. Our blue-collar approach to legal assistance reminds our clients that we are going to work for them.”
