Our Staff

The Lawyers at Fleury, Comery



Ed founded this practice in 1957 after his call to the bar that year. Some of his first and enduring clients were patrons of his father’s tavern business at the old Glen Eagle Hotel, where Ed himself had worked part time to support himself in law school. While initially Ed took on any kind of case, he quickly began to specialize in real estate and corporate/commercial matters after the late Bill Comery became his partner in the firm in 1960.

Ed has been active in local affairs over the years, including a term as Chairman of the Scarborough Centenary Hospital where he remains an active board member. He is also an avid golfer and is a long standing member and former president of the Scarborough Golf Club. Ed’s favourite kind of case involves municipal and administrative matters including appeals to tribunals such as the Ontario Municipal Board and the Assessment Appeal Board. E-mail:

Edward R. Fleury


Originally from Woodstock, Ontario, Greg attended Carleton University, York University and finally the University of Toronto to complete an M.A. in History. After a four-year stint as a teacher in Thailand, Greg decided on law as his career. He graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School and then was called to the bar in 1983. For five years he articled and then practised law as a junior to a well-respected personal injury lawyer, Paul Shannon. During this time he came to deal with Bill Comery (now deceased), and in 1986 Greg moved to Fleury, Comery.

Greg will conduct most kinds of litigation including commercial disputes, divorces, construction liens, estate litigation and even dogbite cases. Greg’s community involvement includes several years as Chairman of our local Heritage Festival, of which he remains an active committee member. His favourite cases, such as estate litigation and appeal work, involve legal research and writing where it can make a difference. E-mail:

We are very proud of our staff.  Most of our assistants are mature, family-oriented parents.

Ed Fleury long ago made it part of our office credo that family comes first - but we feel that the ability of our staff to balance home and the job results in a maturity and understanding attitude that our clients appreciate at our end of the telephone line.

Gloria Soderstrom

                                Gloria Soderstrom

Our book-keeper and office manager, Gloria Soderstrom, has been with Fleury, Comery since 1963. She has experienced the accounting computer revolution, but her perspective quite rightly is on the fundamentals of accounting for a legal practice. Our accountants, who attend only once a year to do our statements, are in awe of Gloria’s fastidious record-keeping and attention to detail. For our clients, Gloria can provide instant answers as to the status of their account with us. For our staff, Gloria is that mother figure all of us need from time to time.

Moreen Murphy

                                    Maureen Murphy

Maureen Murphy, Stephen Fleury’s assistant, has been with Fleury, Comery since 1981. Starting as our receptionist, Maureen quickly learned the ropes and became a personal secretary. Always cheerful and lively, Maureen keeps both Stephen and his litigation clients at ease, while staying focused on the case at hand.

Susan Nash                                      

                                   Susan Nash

Susan Nash joined us in 1996, and has been Ed Fleury’s prime assistant since then. Susan commenced working in the legal field at the well-known firm of Stikeman Elliott, and then spent five years at Ontario Hydro in the property department before getting out of the downtown rat-race. Although Susan specializes in Ed’s real estate and development work, she is a quick study in any area of law when called upon to assist.
