Francine Friedman Griesing was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1957 as the child of immigrant parents, one of which survived the Holocaust. She was the first member of her family to go to college and earn an advanced degree. Fran graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School with honors, where she then went on to practice law at top tier firms in New York and Philadelphia for over twenty years. She focused her legal practice on resolving business disputes for the largest companies in the world. In between her time at big firms, Fran also served as Chair of Litigation of Philadelphia’s City Solicitor’s Office under former Mayor Edward G. Rendell, who later served as Governor of Pennsylvania.
Jessica Mazzeo was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1981 as the second child of working class parents. Jessica’s first job as a teenager was in the early 1990s helping her mother on the weekends filing papers at the insurance defense law firm she worked at in Media, Pennsylvania. From there, she would go on to work at two large law firms in Philadelphia from 2000 to 2007.
Fran and Jess met in April 2007 when Jessica was interviewing for a role as Fran’s assistant at the law firm she had recently joined. It was a day that they would never forget – so much so that they both remember what they were each wearing that day!
The rapport they developed after that first meeting fully manifested in the years to come, so much so, that in January 2010, they opened the doors of Griesing Law, LLC . Together they grew their firm into what it is today: a full-service business law firm with a 15-person staff and three offices nationwide serving Fortune 500, government agencies, small businesses and individuals.
During those first five years in business, Fran and Jessica began to notice an increasing amount of professionals and business owners coming to them for all sorts of business advice related to how they achieved their success. After years of providing this service at no cost, Fran and Jess decided to open the doors of Bossible in April 2016 to serve these needs.
