Heidi Foshay Kimball is one of 14 Nova Scotian lawyers receiving the Queens Counsel designation today.
Nova Scotia's Minister of Justice and Attorney General Lena Diab announced the appointments.
"As a lawyer, I know how prestigious this designation is, and I congratulate this year's appointees," Diab said in a release. "They have made great contributions to the practice of law and to their communities in Nova Scotia throughout their careers."
