Endorsements: Judicial Appointments & Bar Associations


Euketa Oliver

"EBGBA counts it an honor to endorse such a dedicated leader in the Earl B. Gilliam Bar family for a judicial appointment. Among many other reasons, we enthusiastically endorse Euketa Oliver as she holds values central to our mission and our work, and will treat all people with dignity and respect both inside and outside the courtroom. We believe she will be a fair and impartial arbiter of the law and a welcome addition to the Bench as she will bring a unique and much-needed perspective."

Harold G. Murray 1996
