Ronkonkoma, NY – Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, a premier law firm with offices in Ronkonkoma and Bridgehampton, is pleased to announce that East End Arts will honor CMM partner Scott D. Middleton with a Community Impact Award at the ARTworks gala on July 19, 2018 at the Suffolk Theater in Riverhead. Middleton was selected based on his work to promote the nonprofit’s core values of leadership, collaboration, access, and education. The Riverhead-based organization has enriched the community through the arts since 1972.
An experienced litigator and founding partner at CMM, Middleton represents businesses, municipalities, and individuals in a wide array of matters including transportation, personal injury, premises liability, labor law, civil rights, wrongful death, and road design, with a particular focus on complex negligence cases. He has also served as Trustee, Mayor, Village Justice, and Village Attorney/Prosecutor for the Incorporated Village of Lake Grove, giving him unique insight into municipal matters.
A lifelong Long Island resident and patron of the arts, Middleton joined the East End Arts board of directors in 2017. He and CMM have supported numerous East End Arts initiatives including JumpstART (artist workshops focusing on the business side of art and culminating in a public art project in downtown Riverhead) and the Teeny Awards (which honor the best of high school theater). In addition to his work with East End Arts, Middleton is also actively involved with Stony Brook University, where serves on the Intercollegiate Athletic Board and volunteers with the Children’s Hospital Task Force. He is also a past President of the Alumni Association and past Adjunct Professor in Political Science.
Conifer Realty and the Salvatico family/Jaral Properties, Inc. will also receive Community Impact Awards at the ARTworks gala, and Grammy nominee Brady Rymer will receive the Excellence in the Arts Award. More information about the event is available here.
