A woman is suing her divorce Lawyer for allegedly seducing her after her marriage collapsed and then trying to ruin reconciliation with her husband.
Atesa Pacelli filed a lawsuit against Peter Cedeno, claiming he ‘manipulated’ her into having sex with him during her ‘highly contentious’ divorce from Anthony Pacelli.
Pacelli, 41, and her husband of eight years are suing Cedeno, who is married, for malpractice, sexual assault and professional negligence.
The stay-at-home mother has also reported Cedeno, 48, to the state ethics committee.
Pacelli said that Cedeno began trying to seduce her within a week after she hired him in June, telling her she was ‘beautiful’ and looked ’10 years younger than her age’.

The pair first had sex after a court hearing when they got drunk at lunch and then went back to Pacelli’s home, according to the New York Daily News.
Cedeno allegedly got naked and laid on Pacelli’s bed while she was in the bathroom and then took ‘advantage of her intoxicated condition’, according to the lawsuit.
He allegedly told Pacelli that he was ‘really turned on’ by the fact that they didn’t use a condom.
Cedeno also said that he ‘would be happy’ if Pacelli got pregnant from their encounter because ‘that way you can’t ignore me’, the lawsuit states.
He then complimented Pacelli’s breasts, but when she revealed they were implants that had been an engagement gift from her husband the lawyer said she’d have to get rid of them in the future, the lawsuit states.
‘Cedeno asserted that once “We get engaged, you’re taking them out since you put them in for another guy”‘, court papers state.
More than 100 pages of text messages between Pacelli and Cedeno were included in the lawsuit, including many that illustrated their sexual relationship.

‘I need your lips on my nipples sometime in the near future, or else I’m going to get very frustrated,’ Pacelli wrote in one, telling him ‘my body misses you’.
‘You’re a troublemaker,’ Cedeno wrote to her in another exchange. ‘But you’re good to look at.’
Cedeno also tried to impress Pacelli and ‘assert his masculinity’ by bragging that he liked to speed more than 120 mph and ‘outrun cops’, the suit alleges.
He also allegedly claimed that he was addicted to pornography and that he had shot someone before taking the bar exam, according to the New York Post.
Pacelli also sent Cedeno a number of selfies, including two bikini pictures and one that showed her in workout clothes with a winky face emoji that read: ‘Has my selfie game improved? You be the judge…on my way to “bang it out”, as they say'”.
The lawsuit alleges that Pacelli and Cedeno had sex at least one more time after their post-lunch rendezvous.
Anthony Pacelli then allegedly saw the text messages six days later on his wife’s iPad and ‘had a panic attack’.
Cedeno allegedly told Pacelli that she should date ‘an older guy’ who ‘would know how to treat her’ when he found out the couple was reconciling, the suit states.
He also threatened to fight Pacelli’s husband if he ever told Cedeno’s wife about their affair, according to the lawsuit.
The Pacellis are now living together in their Manhattan apartment.
Cedeno’s attorney said that he ‘fully denies’ having a sexual relationship with Pacelli ‘while he was engaged as her lawyer’.
‘We believe the allegations to be outrageous and false’, the attorney added
