Denise C. Aiken

Denise C. Aiken was born in Providence, a seventeenth-generation Rhode Islander. She attended Providence Public Schools and attended Seton Hall University in Greensburg, PA before transferring to Providence College for her senior year.
She received a post-graduate certificate in Paralegal Studies from Roger Williams University and was a litigation paralegal at the firm Chisholm and Feldman from 1980 until 1989, specializing in Medical Malpractice. She attended Suffolk University Law School in the evenings while a paralegal and became an associate at Chisholm and Feldman in 1989. In 1990, Ms. Aiken introduced a Family Law component into the Chisholm and Feldman services and stayed with that firm until it dissolved in 1996.
In 1994, Ms. Aiken began what would become a ten year relationship with Roger Williams University as an adjunct professor in the Legal Studies program, teaching Intro to Law, Philosophy of Law and Law in Contemporary Society. In addition, in 1996, she became the Acting Director of the Family Law Clinic for that institution's Law School for the summer semester. 1996 was also the year that Ms. Aiken made a foray into politics and was elected to the Rhode Island House of Representatives. She served on the House Judiciary Committee and served the people of Warwick for three terms.
Ms. Aiken became the first Rhode Island woman to chair the Redistricting Commission in 2001. The representative districts are redrawn every ten years after each national census. At the same time, she started her research into the life and career of Ada Sawyer, first publishing an article in the Rhode Island Journal of Law.
From June 2002 until January 2004 Ms. Aiken worked for the City of Warwick as the Advocate for Juveniles and Families. She has been a staff attorney with Rhode Island Legal Services, Inc. since 2003.
Ms. Aiken has been zealous in encouraging young girls to prepare to practice law and for woman lawyers to make laws by running for public office.

Governor Carcieri can choose his nominee from a list consisting of Denise C. Aiken, a Rhode Island Legal Services staff lawyer and former state legislator; Family Court Magistrate Patricia K. Asquith; Family Court Magistrate Edward H. Newman; Sharon O'Keefe, a Barrington lawyer and former assistant child advocate; and Alton William Wiley Jr., a North Providence lawyer and son of the state's first black Superior Court judge.

With eight of the nine commission members present, Aiken and O'Keefe received 8 votes, Asquith received 7 votes, Newman and Wiley received 6 votes, and Updegrove was eliminated with 3 votes. (Each commission member can cast five votes.)
The Journal published a seven-part series last year about Cabral's progression from cheerleader to crack addict to drug court participant, and Aiken represented Cabral for Rhode Island Legal Services, a nonprofit law firm.
"She wanted to help me to do what I had to do to be the parent that I was meant to me," Cabral said of Aiken.
