Attorney Richard Decker began practicing law because he wanted to help people. He met the Lohman family while attending law school in the Nineties, and has been with The Lohman Law Offices ever since. When he is not busy with his position as partner, Mr. Decker enjoys golfing, beach time, and spending time with his family.
My name is Richard Decker. I'm a partner here at Lohman Law Offices. I've been here for 20 years now. I always wanted to be an attorney. Always felt like I could help people by being an attorney, so I did that.
I started back into school, went to law school here at the University of Louisville back in the '90s, and my second year of law school, I had the good fortune of meeting the Lohmans. And I clerked for them my second year of law school, and I've been here ever since.
When I'm not practicing law, that's a strange question. I used to love to play golf. I'm getting a little older now. I never was good at it, but I always enjoyed doing it. I like going to the beach. I like the warm weather. I used to like the cold weather too, but my wife doesn't, so we usually go someplace warm. We enjoy going to the lake, skiing, stuff like that.
I enjoy being around my grandkids. My children are now in their 30s, and now I've got a bunch of little . . . the grandchildren are easier to deal with, because I don't have to take them home with me and I have a lot of fun with them. So I spend a lot of time doing that. And my wife and I have a child with needs, that she's now 30, and she's a full-time job for my wife. And I like to help my wife assist her in the weekends and stuff like that. I spend a lot of time doing that too.
So that's basically what I do. I don't do a whole lot of anything. I like to be outdoors a little bit and get a little sun on my face and that's about it.
