Darryl J. Bouganim’s practice area focuses primarily on the securities and insurance industries, representing both individuals and employees in arbitration, litigation, mediation and regulatory matters. Mr. Bouganim, originally from Toronto, Canada, is expanding Malecki Law’s representation of securities and insurance industry employees from promissory note, employment transition, U4/U5 issues and internal/external investigation and hearing issues, into the ability to represent foreign born HB-1 visa industry executives in matters involving immigration, as well as other employees in disability and even criminal issues. Bolstering his stellar background, Mr. Bouganim spent time interning at the United States Office of Personnel Management in Washington, D.C. on issues of Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Labor Relations and Pay & Leave.

Mr. Bouganim possesses more than a decade of insurance claims, consulting and management experience within the insurance industry, including at Liberty Mutual Insurance where he was a territory manager supervising and training teams of consultants, managing a large multi-million-dollar budget. He has also consulted for State Farm, Allstate and other major insurance carriers. He also has served as a subject matter expert for insurers and engaged in risk management, recommending how clients can minimize risk and future claim costs.

Mr. Bouganim graduated at the top of his class, cum laude, from Michigan State University College of Law, receiving the Jurisprudence Award for top class grades in Antitrust and Advanced Legal Research. His interest in securities law began there in the Michigan State University Investor Advocacy Clinic, where early in his legal career he represented investors in FINRA arbitration and mediation. After that, he was fortunate to work for a well-known New York securities attorney in Brooklyn, (a borough known for housing one of the largest Securities Fraud Units of the United States Attorney’s Office), where he worked on scores of investor arbitration cases from inception through hearing or settlement.

In addition to his law degree, Mr. Bouganim has a Master’s Degree in Psychology from the Illinois Institute of Technology. He spent the early part of his career counseling and advocating on behalf of people with acquired disabilities, injured workers, and the homeless, an issue he cares deeply about.

Client Reviews
Jenice and her staff are all excellent - highly responsive, answer as many questions as you have in a way that you can understand, are very patient, sympathetic to your situation, and make you feel comfortable during a difficult and stressful time. I never once had to follow up - they always came to me to keep me updated by phone and mail. I highly recommend them.
★★★★★
I worked with Jenice and her team to successfully resolve a brokerage / securities related issue for an elder relative and was quite pleased with how they walked us through the process and took into account the challenges that age sometimes unfortunately present. They were all professional - and effective. I would use them again without question if the need arose.
★★★★★
Jenice is truly a rock star! My wife and I contacted her to help with a quick-turn-around closing on our apartment. Fast, friendly, and fabulously informed about the process and what we'd need to stay on track to close on time, Jenice never skipped a beat. She's a dedicated attorney that goes above and beyond for her clients. Honestly, what more could you ask for?
★★★★★
Ms. Malecki defended a commercial litigation case for my client, and did a very professional job. Her motion practice was direct and she was honest with the client regarding the merits of the various issues involved. She was professionally courteous but also held her ground with opposing counsel as required. Her billing estimates were accurate as well, which was greatly appreciated in order to make appropriate business decisions.
