Everyone at CFJ is very proud of our own Dana Gutierrez who was appointed to the Guam Superior Court bench on November 19, 2019 by Governor Lou Leon Guerrero.
At the ceremony announcing Dana's appointment, the Governor said, "Attorney Dana Gutierrez possesses the judicial temperament, that was very crucial requirement for me, ethical grounding, intelligence, education, courage and integrity."
According to a Pacific Daily News article:
"Gutierrez said she's humbled for the governor and lieutenant governor's appointment, and is grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve Guam. 'I have always believed that public service is a privilege, a privilege that should not be taken for granted or lightly. When I met with governor, she emphasized to me that I am her first judicial nominee. I take that to heart,' she said.
Gutierrez told the crowd at Adelup, including her immediate family and colleagues, that she will always conduct herself 'with fairness, open-mindedness and with commitment to justice.'
'I would not be standing here without the unconditional love and support of my family and friends, as well as the mentorship and guidance that I have received from my colleagues throughout the 22 years that I have been practicing law,' she said."
