Ms. Peacott-Ricardos began her legal career as a litigation associate at a large Honolulu law firm. After practicing a few years, she returned to The Sex Abuse Treatment Center where she provided public policy advocacy on issues of sexual violence and child maltreatment, and oversaw the agency’s prevention and education program until joining Goodsill Anderson Quinn & Stifel in 2014.
