Abilheira Law is proud to announce that attorney Allison C. Abilheira has been selected as one of the 2017 Superlawyers Rising Stars for Rhode Island in the category of Criminal Defense/ DUI Lawyers.

Before being designated as a Rising Star, nominees are subjected to a competitive selection process. Only 2.5% of the lawyers in each state secure this prestigious award. In order to be considered for the Superlawyers Rising Star award, lawyers have to be nominated by a peer. Once nominated, the Superlawyers publication evaluates each lawyer based on twelve indicators of their professional achievement including experience in their respective field, education and other honors and awards. As the selection process continues, the top candidates in each practice area conduct a peer evaluation of the remaining candidates based on a five (5) point rating scale.  Finally, the candidates with the highest point totals from each category are selected as Superlawyers Rising Stars.

The Rhode Island Superlawyers list is published each year in the Rhode Island Monthly Magazine.  Attorney Allison C. Abilheira is prominently featured in the November issue:

The list is also published in the Superlawyers magazine. Attorney Abilheira is also featured in this addition.

Please join us in congratulating Attorney Abilheira on this accomplishment!
