Friedlander Misler partner Jennifer Jette was featured in the Q&A Series “How I Made It” in an article published on July 1, 2022, “How I Made Partner: ‘Make Yourself Irreplaceable. Show Up and Be Dependable,’ Says Jennifer Weissman Jette of Friedlander Misler.”

Jennifer joined the firm in 2014 after graduating from Emory Law School, and was named a partner in the real estate and commercial transactions practice in January 2022.
