Message From the President

A message from our President, Attorney Jeannette Woods:


Here at Decker & Woods P.C., we believe in the Golden Rule: “Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.” It applies to how we treat “others” and we define “others” as somebody, anybody, and everybody other than ourselves. The Golden Rule applies regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, or any other status.

In 1982, Attorney Rex Decker opened a solo practice and began applying the Golden Rule to his invoices. Convinced it was the right thing to do, he also applied the Golden Rule to every aspect of his law practice. We founded Decker & Woods, P.C. as law partners in 1986 and made the Golden Rule our firm’s most important policy.

In August of 2001, we had to fill out an application for a Small Business Administration construction loan by hand. As a copy of it shows, “Live by the Golden Rule” was our number one “Key to Business Success.”

Better than a compass, it points us to the right course without fail. We believe in it for our business and we govern ourselves by it. Having been the distinguishing characteristic of this law firm from the start, The Golden Rule is truly the hallmark of Decker & Woods, P.C. That is why we are pleased to announce that on June 9, 2015 the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted Decker & Woods, P.C. Federal Service Mark Registration No. 4,751,428 for THE GOLDEN RULE LAW GROUP® to distinguish our approach to legal services. As probate and estate attorneys, we assist clients with many kinds of cases, including trust administration, probate estate administration, guardianship, conservatorships, single transaction authority, litigation, estate planning, affidavits for land transfers and small estates, and delegation of parental authority.

We are accepting new clients on a case by case basis, and offer a special introductory discount for that purpose. We would be happy to discuss your case with you. If you would like to meet with one of our attorneys, call (480) 821-1012, or click here!


Jeannette Woods, Esq.
