Certilman Balin Adler & Hyman, LLP has announced that Carrie Adduci (New Hyde Park) was named to the 2023 New York Metro Super Lawyers Rising Stars list.
The selection process for the Rising Stars list is the same as the Super Lawyers selection process, with one exception: to be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger or in practice for 10 years or less.
All attorneys first go through the Super Lawyers selection process. Those who are not selected to the Super Lawyers list, but who meet either one of the Rising Stars eligibility requirements, go through the Rising Stars selection process.
While up to five percent of the lawyers in the state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5% are named to the Rising Stars list.
Carrie C. Adduci, a partner in the Real Estate Practice Group, concentrates on acquisitions, sales and refinances of commercial and residential properties. She also represents developers with regard to the sale of their newly constructed residential homes.
Adduci also co-taught a course in applied legal analysis at her alma mater, St. John’s University School of Law. She earned her Juris Doctor, cum laude in 2012 and her Bachelor of Science, summa cum laude, with a major in Legal Studies and a minor in Theology.
She served as Managing Editor of St. John’s Law Review and Vice Co-Chair of the Public Interest Committee. As a student, she helped her peers to strengthen their writing skills, as a consultant in the Writing Center.
St. John’s Law School awarded Adduci with a Merit Based Scholarship, the ALI-ABA Scholarship and Leadership Award, and the St. John’s Gold Pro Bono Service Award. She was also on the Dean’s List.
During the summer of 2011, Adduci served as a law clerk at the Cook County Office of the Public Guardian in Chicago, Ill. She was designated a guardian ad litem and attorney for children involved in protective proceedings in Cook County Juvenile Court.
Adduci was named to the 2024 edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch, as well as to the Rising Stars list of Metro New York Super Lawyers consecutively since 2021, and its 2023 Women’s Edition.
She was also recognized with a Leadership in Law Award and as one of the “Who’s Who in Professional Women” by Long Island Business News, as well as as one of the “Rising Stars” by Real Estate Weekly.
She is admitted to practice in the state of New York and is a member of the Nassau County Bar Association and New York State Bar Association.
