Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP, a Forbes Top Corporate Law Firm with offices across Long Island, is a dedicated supporter of the Pro Bono Partnership. Christine Malafi is the chair of CMM’s corporate department and has been a member of the Pro Bono Partnership Long Island Advisory Committee for three years, joining shortly after our Long Island office opened in 2017.  During that time, Christine and corporate associate Kyle Broderick have assisted on several matters for Long Island nonprofits.  Christine and Kyle’s dedication, as well as the support of the entire firm, has been critical to the success and growth of our Long Island clients.

Christine and Kyle have worked on a variety of pro bono projects for local charities, including drafting privacy and terms of use policies, reviewing employee handbooks, and drafting and reviewing a variety of corporate documents.  YES Community Counseling Center (YESCCC), a Long Island-based nonprofit dedicated to increasing awareness about personal and community issues, preventing and treating substance abuse, and promoting healthy families, approached the Partnership seeking assistance with revising their bylaws as well as conflict of interest and whistleblower policies.  Christine and Kyle accepted the assignment and worked closely with YESCCC until the revised documents were approved by its Board of Directors.  After the matter was completed, Executive Director Jamie Bogenshutz wrote: “As a nonprofit organization we are often confronted by the reality that our fiscal resources often pose limitations on what we are able to accomplish regarding compliance with legal standards.  Thankfully, through the Pro Bono Partnership and [CMM] this is no longer a concern for our organization.”

Pro Bono Partnership is pleased to recognize the commitment of Christine and Kyle, as well as all of those at CMM who support their efforts.
