FORT LAUDERDALE (Oct. 18, 2016) — Scott Knapp, a partner in Broad and Cassel’s Fort Lauderdale office, has received the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s 40 Under 40 Outstanding Lawyers of South Florida award.
Award recipients were nominated by their peers to receive this award and selected by a committee comprised of well-known local attorneys and community leaders.

Knapp will be recognized at a gala event in November benefitting the Foundation.
