It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of the Associate Chief Justice of the Superior Court, the Honourable Eva Petras. This is a great loss to our justice system.
She was an exceptional judge: humble, courteous, attentive to the needs of those under trial, with a great capacity for analysis and an extraordinary ability to synthesize. A great lady of great humanism.
The Honourable Eva Petras was one of those judges of whom everyone agreed that there were only good things to say, she was a true source of inspiration.
«Every time that I plead before her, I left with the impression that she really clearly understood everything that was going on in the case, and her judgments were always spot-on. It was a pleasure to plead before her. »
This is how Me Daniel Romano, the senior partner of our firm, paid tribute to her, having had the opportunity to plead often before her.
All of us at Kalman Samuels would like to pay tribute to Justice Petras and offer our deepest condolences to her family, friends, and colleagues in the judiciary.
May her soul rest in peace.
