Released on November 29, 2013

The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to appoint Patrick Anthony Reis as a Provincial Court Judge in Yorkton.

“Judge Reis has been practicing law in Saskatchewan for nearly 30 years,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said.  “His experience in criminal and family law in rural and urban settings will be an asset to the judiciary in our province.”

Judge Reis was called to the Bar in 1984.  He has dedicated most of his career as a lawyer with Legal Aid in Regina, providing services to clients throughout southern Saskatchewan.  Before moving to Regina in 1986, he worked as a lawyer for the Northern Area Office of Legal Aid in La Ronge.

In 1998, he was a recipient of the Saskatchewan Legal Aid Commission Employee Recognition Award and was also honoured with a Queen’s Counsel designation in 2008.

Judge Reis was elected as a Bencher of the Law Society of Saskatchewan in 2012 and sat on the Admissions and Education, Access to Legal Services and Conduct Investigation committees.  He has provided mentoring to law students and young lawyers.  He is also an active volunteer in Regina and has coached hockey and baseball.

Judge Reis replaces Judge Darin Chow, who has been appointed to the Court of Queen’s Bench in Regina.
