The Suffolk County Bar Association (SCBA), one of the largest voluntary bar associations in New York State, honored Campolo, Middleton & McCormick partner Patrick McCormick with a Directors’ Award at the 110th Annual Installation Dinner on June 15, 2018 at the East Wind in Wading River. McCormick’s fellow honoree for the Directors’ Award was Hon. James Hudson, Acting Justice of the Supreme Court, Commercial Division. The awards recognize “conscientious and meritorious service to the Suffolk County Bar Association and the Suffolk Academy of Law” as well as “zeal and enthusiasm for all of the activities of the Association and the Academy.”
McCormick has served on the SCBA Board for several years and was sworn in earlier this month to continue his term as Dean of the Academy of Law, the SCBA’s educational arm. In this role, McCormick spearheads the continuing education of thousands of New York lawyers. During his tenure he has helped bring the Academy into the future by increasing the number of programs, utilizing new technology, and offering an unprecedented range of topics, scheduling, and formats. In addition to his role as Dean, McCormick has served the SCBA as Chair of the Appellate Practice Committee as well as on the Commercial Division, Landlord/Tenant, and Real Property Committees.
McCormick chairs the Appeals practice group at CMM, having built a reputation as a strategic and talented appellate attorney over nearly three decades in the field. Representing clients in civil and criminal matters in both federal and state court, McCormick has argued numerous appeals, including three arguments at the New York State Court of Appeals, the state’s highest court. He is also a respected trial attorney, litigating all types of complex commercial and real estate matters, and also represents national commercial shopping centers, retailers, and publicly traded home builders in commercial and residential landlord-tenant matters.
