Scott D. Middleton, a Senior Partner at Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, a premier law firm with offices in Ronkonkoma, Riverhead, and Westbury, has been elected President of the Board of Directors of East End Arts, an award-winning nonprofit committed to building the community through the arts. As President of the Board, Middleton will work to further the nonprofit’s mission to cultivate a wide range of creative and artistic expression through education, exhibition and performance, and collaboration across the community. 

East End Arts (EEA) is a powerful catalyst for economic and cultural revitalization.  The organization has long been recognized for its tourism initiatives and programs that collaborate with government, civic groups, private businesses, and other nonprofits. EEA recently recognized Middleton with a Community Impact Award based on his leadership.

“The impact of the arts and culture on communities has never been so important,” said Middleton. “As President of East End Arts, I’m looking forward to creating partnerships across the East End and beyond to strengthen the organization and expand our influence across the Long Island community.”

“Scott’s leadership will take East End Arts to new heights,” said Diane Burke, the organization’s Executive Director. “His legal and business experience, strong East End ties, and vision will help steer us through these unprecedented times and come out stronger.”

Middleton was instrumental in CMM’s expansion into the East End community, which voted the firm the Gold Prize – Best Law Firm in Dan’s Best of the Best. Head of the firm’s Riverhead office, Middleton is an accomplished litigator, particularly in the areas of municipal liability and personal injury, as well as a go-to land use attorney for municipalities and applicants alike. A lifelong Long Islander and patron of the arts, Middleton joined EEA’s board of directors in 2017 and has since supported numerous initiatives focusing on the business side of the arts, including JumpstART. He is also deeply involved with the Stony Brook University Alumni Association, Staller Center for the Arts, and Intercollegiate Athletic Board.
