Sheila Cesarano has been recognized as one of the Top 20 Women in Law in South Florida, by the Daily Business Review. An accomplished attorney, Ms. Cesarano was selected due to the longevity of her career as a high-caliber litigator. She, along with all honorees, was recognized at a luncheon on October 15, 2014.

Some of the biggest employers in the nation call on Ms. Cesarano to handle labor and employment cases in Florida. A skilled veteran with a strong trial record, she has more than 30 years of experience  defending Fortune 100 companies in and out of court.
