Pay Adjustments to Support Recruitment and Retention Efforts

Hagåtña, Guam – Governor Lou Leon Guerrero has signed off on the Attorney Pay Plan update following a study performed by the Department of Administration (DOA). The approved plan aims to address the critical issue of recruiting and retaining attorneys throughout the Government of Guam, particularly in key government agencies such as the Public Defender Services Corporation and the Office of Attorney General. 

“I am particularly concerned with the mass exodus of attorneys at the Office of Attorney General. This shortage not only hurts the government’s ability to prosecute criminals but also slows down the procurement process and the approval of contracts across the government of Guam. Delays in these operations can have far-reaching consequences for the efficient operation of government,” said Governor Leon Guerrero. “To date, our administration has successfully executed pay plans for the island’s nurses, law enforcement officers, teachers, and the General Pay Plan, and there is an urgent need to bolster the legal workforce in various government departments.”
