Is­land lawyer named QC

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

A Cape Bre­ton lawyer is among 14 from across the prov­ince to re­ceive the honorary ti­tle of Queen’s coun­sel.

The des­ig­na­tion an­nounce­ment was made last week by Jus­tice Min­is­ter Diana Whalen.

Cape Bre­ton lawyer Pamela Marche was among those awarded the des­ig­na­tion this year. Marche, based in Syd­ney, is the di­rec­tor of court ser­vices for the prov­ince.

The des­ig­na­tion is awarded each year to mem­bers of the le­gal pro­fes­sion and rec­og­nizes ex­cep­tional merit and out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to the le­gal com­mu­nity.

An in­de­pen­dent ad­vi­sory com­mit­tee of­fers rec­om­men­da­tions for the des­ig­na­tion to the pro­vin­cial cabi­net. In ad­di­tion to merit and le­gal con­tri­bu­tions, re­cip­i­ents must have demon­strated pro­fes­sional in­tegrity and good char­ac­ter and have served a min­i­mum of 15 years as a mem­ber of the Nova Scotia bar.

Other ap­pointees were Ran­dall P.H. Bal­come, Kentville; Sheree Lynn Con­lon, Hal­i­fax; Peter James Craig, Hal­i­fax; Kathryn M. Dumke, Bridge­wa­ter; David Ger­ald Henley, Dart­mouth; Me­gan Lon­g­ley, Hal­i­fax; Loretta Marie Man­ning, Hal­i­fax; Bernard Miller, Hal­i­fax; Richard W.P. Mur­phy, Yar­mouth; Jane O’Neill, Hal­i­fax; Kathryn A. Ray­mond, Dart­mouth; Kelly J. Serbu, Dart­mouth; and Can­dace L. Thomas, Dart­mouth.

“This des­ig­na­tion rec­og­nizes the great con­tri­bu­tions made by some out­stand­ing Nova Scotia lawyers and their per­sonal and pro­fes­sional com­mit­ment to our prov­ince,” said Whalen, in a news re­lease.
