Vianei Braun and Janet Hahn, both Decker Jones shareholders, have been named to “The 400 Most Influential People in Fort Worth” 2021 list by Fort Worth, INC. magazine.  This is Hahn’s fourth year to be recognized; Braun’s second.

“This ranking of the most influential people in the Fort Worth area is not a popularity contest,” says Hal A. Brown, magazine owner and publisher.  “Nor is the ranking scientific, but it is based on significant research, achievements and records…the individuals on this list have significant clout, juice, pull and sway.  They all have what it takes to incite change, to move our city forward in a tangible way (and intangible ways), and to make our lives as Fort Worthians better.”

Vianei Braun has been representing employers for more than 25 years, providing strategies for employment law compliance and avoiding litigation.  She earned her bachelor’s degree from Princeton at age 19, and her law degree from the University of Texas School of Law. She serves on the board of First Financial Bankshares, Inc. (FFIN – NASDAQ) and is immediate past chair of the board of the Fort Worth Public Library Foundation.

Janet Hahn began working at Decker Jones as a legal secretary in the 1980s, and earned her law degree from Baylor Law School. For more than 25 years, Janet has been advising clients in business and corporate matters, mergers and acquisitions, and estate planning and probate.  She has served on numerous charitable and civic committees and boards, including Women Steering Business, which raises money to buy livestock from young women exhibitors at the Fort Worth Stock Show’s annual Sale of Champions.
