Alyana Abellar graduated from Michigan State University College of Law with magna cum laude honors. In recognition of her excellence as the highest achieving student, she received the Jurisprudence Achievement Awards for Immigration Law, Trust and Estates, Sales and Leases, and Torts. While in law school, she served as a Student Clinician in Michigan State University’s Civil Rights Clinic, representing inmates in civil litigations involving violations of their constitutional rights. She also served as a researcher for the Lori E.

Prior to law school, Alyana Abellar received her Bachelor of Arts in English Studies from University of the Philippines where she maintained herself as a College Scholar for five consecutive semesters. She grew up in the Philippines and is fluent in Tagalog.

Alyana Abellar began her legal career before going to law school as a paralegal at a law firm in Florida where she gained experience working with divorce, post-decree matters, parentage, child support, probate, and criminal cases. She continued to work as a paralegal while in law school, focusing on family law cases, which enabled her to become adept in handling family law cases early on her legal career. Before joining Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices, she worked at a family law firm in one of the suburbs of Chicago as a law clerk.

Alyana Abellar fights zealously and vigilantly for her clients.
