Attorneys Yolanda Cash Jackson and Ellyn S. Bogdanoff have considerable clout in Tallahassee, Washington and elsewhere as members of Becker’s marquee government law and lobbying practice. Jackson made history this year as the first Black chair of the Miami-Dade Beacon Council, the county’s public-private partnership for economic development. At Becker, where she serves on the firm’s management committee, Jackson leverages longstanding relationships with Tallahassee policymakers in matters including state government appropriations. Bogdanoff joined Becker after eight years as a Republican representing South Florida in the state Legislature, including three terms in the House of Representatives. She counsels Becker’s clients in flooding and coastal issues as chair of the firm’s sea level advisory team and co-leads the practice group devoted to early learning facilities.
