Mitchell Berger, the big-time Democratic money man and Fort Lauderdale lawyer, was married over the weekend in New Hampshire.
The announcement, via Twitter, from U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee: “Wonderful to celebrate Mitchell Berger & Sharon Kegerreis' wedding in New Hampshire.” She added the hashtags #love and #weddedbliss.
Wasserman Schultz was on summer vacation with the family in New Hampshire, and the picture she tweeted showed the congresswoman, her husband Steve, and the newly married couple.
Berger, 57, founded the Berger Singerman law firm in 1985 and serves as its co-chairman. He has a big corporate practice.
In the political world, he raises money for presidential, gubernatorial and U.S. Senate candidates, and was among the attorneys who represented then-vice president Al Gore and then U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman in the aftermath of the 2000 presidential election in which Gore and Lieberman lost Florida, and consequently the election, to George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.
Kegerreis, 55, is a partner in the firm’s Miami office. She’s handled a range of litigation, including white-collar criminal cases and intellectual property disputes, and has advised companies on the Patriot Act and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
