Guam - Attorney Cynthia Ecube was honored today with the court's Cristobal C. Duenas Excellence Award.

The award recognizes those who have advanced the administration of justice and the legal profession through meritorious deeds or exemplary service, especially at the District Court of Guam.

"The reason why I do this is because of our passion for the law. And wanting to give back to the community. For me it was always important to benefit our membership, our legal community, our courts so we could have a better bar.," she explained.

Ecube served as the Guam Bar president for the last five years and served as vice president prior to that.

She's the fourth recipient of the award and the first woman to receive the honor.
