Fort Worth Inc. magazine has named Decker Jones’ shareholder Janet Hahn one of Fort Worth’s most influential people. This 2018 Special Edition of Fort Worth Inc. magazine lists the top 400 women and men in the fields of law, education, health care and life sciences, philanthropy, arts and leisure, oil and gas, architecture, engineering, development and real estate.
“While having business/political power played a significant role in who made the list, civic involvement was also a big factor,” said Hal A. Brown, owner/publisher of the business centric magazine.
“Janet has a passion for service,” says Brian Yost, firm CEO, in congratulating her on the honor. “She serves her clients in all aspects of business, mergers & acquisitions, and estate planning & probate. In addition to being an outstanding attorney, she is extremely active in our greater Fort Worth community.”
She joined Decker Jones as a legal secretary in the 1980s and attended night classes to become a paralegal. After completing her paralegal courses and while still working full-time at Decker Jones, she continued her education by attending night classes and ultimately earned her undergraduate degree. After obtaining her undergraduate degree, she then attended Baylor Law School and became the first woman shareholder in the Decker Jones law firm.
Hahn sits on the Board of Trustees of Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center, the Board of The Women’s Center of Tarrant County, and the Tarrant County College Foundation. She is also a member of Women Steering Business, the nonprofit that raises money to buy livestock from girls who exhibit animals at the annual Fort Worth Stock Show. She teaches young children the Bible on Sundays.
