About Attorney General Leevin Taitano Camacho

Throughout his career, Attorney General Leevin Taitano Camacho has been an advocate for everyday people. From teaching in the Guam public school system, working with low-income communities in Seattle and Boston, and fighting to protect Pagat Village, Attorney General Camacho has acted in the service of people.

Attorney General Camacho attended John F. Kennedy High School and the University of Washington. After graduating from Boston University School of Law, he clerked for the Supreme Court of Guam before entering private practice.

Attorney General Camacho was in private practice for 12 years before being elected. During that time, he handled over 100 criminal cases and over 15 Supreme Court of Guam appeals. He assisted the governments of Guam and the CNMI in reviewing complex environmental impact studies. He has also litigated several land rights and environmental justice cases, including a lawsuit to stop the construction of a firing range complex over Pagat Village and a case challenging the proposed development of a high-rise tower in southern Guam. He was also local counsel in a national lawsuit seeking to extend voting rights to U.S. citizens living in the territories.
