ATLANTA, GA (March 25, 2016) – Jessica Cook, a partner at Fisher Phillips, has been chosen by the Daily Report, Atlanta’s leading legal newspaper, as a member of the 2016 “On the Rise” class – the top 40 Georgia lawyers under the age of 40.
The Daily Report selected Cook based on her impact on her clients as well as her community.

Albert Brannen, managing partner of the Atlanta office of Fisher Phillips. “She serves her clients, her partners and her community with unparalleled enthusiasm and professionalism, and is well-deserving of this recognition.”
Cook’s selection is the latest in a recent string of professional accomplishments. Earlier this month, she was selected to participate in the 2016 Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellows Program. Additionally, she was selected in 2015 for inclusion in The Legal 500 – Immigration.
Cook is a member of Fisher Phillips’ Global Immigration Practice Group. She has extensive experience representing and advising employers in all areas of business immigration, including temporary employment visas, labor certifications, permanent residency, and outbound visas. Cook represents local, national and multi-national companies with regard to their immigration needs in such industries as higher education, health care, information technology, manufacturing, and other fields.
