Who is Peter L. Cedeno?

Peter Cedeno is a lawyer based out of New York who has been accused of sexual harassment, failure to carry out his fiduciary duty among other things.

He runs the law firm of Peter L. Cedeño & Associates, P.C. in New York. The internet is filled with horror stories about his unprofessional behavior and sexual harassment allegations. Recently a Change.org petition was started to disbar Peter Cedeno for sexually abusing his emotionally vulnerable clients.

Major news outlets like NYPost, DailyMail & NYDailyNews have all covered stories about his unethical behavior. In one such instance, Peter Cedeno abused his position of power to manipulate and rape one of his clients after getting her too drunk to meaningfully consent to his sexual advances. 

On top of that, Peter Cedeno intentionally sabotaged her legal case and tried to prevent the reconciliation of the estranged couple. 

Cedeno, who insisted his own marriage was in freefall, threatened to attack Anthony Pacelli if he went public about the adulterous relationship, the suit says.

A lecherous divorce lawyer prolonged an emotionally bereft client’s case to seduce her, court papers charge. Amorous attorney Peter Cedeno preyed on the woman when her eight-year marriage collapsed, bedding the Manhattan mom after a boozy lunchtime rendezvous and two months of wooing, according to a startling lawsuit.
