A Crown attorney from Antigonish has been awarded the Queen’s Counsel designation.
Allen Murray is one of 14 lawyers from the province who will receive their Q.C. appointments during an official ceremony at the Lieutenant Governor’s House in Halifax in May.
Mark Furey, our province’s Justice Minister and Attorney General, announced the appointments Thursday.
Murray, who is the Chief Crown for the central region of the province, leads Crown attorneys and support staff members from Antigonish, New Glasgow, Truro and Amherst.
The Q.C. designation is awarded annually to members of the legal profession to recognize exceptional merit and outstanding contributions to the legal community; appointees must have spent at least 15 years as a member of the province’s bar.
