Fabian VanCott is proud to celebrate the selection of attorney Jennifer E. Decker by Utah Business as one of the 2020 “Thirty Women to Watch” in Utah.  The women of Utah are known for their leadership. After all, Utah women were the first women to vote, a Utah woman was the first female state senator, and it was a Utah woman who was one of the first female Sheriff’s deputies.  Fabian VanCott has one of the most active and accomplished women lawyer groups in Utah.  Congratulations Ms. Decker!
