THE LAWYERS AT FLEURY, COMERY LLP

Our clients might be interested in some background information about the lawyers at this firm.

EDWARD FLEURY, Q.C.

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 Bill Comery (deceased, 2008) 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.

GREGORY E. McCONNELL, M.A., LL.B.

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 dog bite cases. Greg is the firm’s computer expert. He helped establish our web site as one of the first law firm web sites in Scarborough. 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.

STEPHEN FLEURY, B.Sc., LL.B.

Yes, Stephen is related to Ed, namely, as his nephew. Stephen joined the firm in 1992 and has distinguished himself as a litigator in family law and employment law. Stephen also practices in the areas of Wills and Estates, and collection matters.

Stephen keeps himself busy outside the office with his young family, and involvement as a member of the Knights of Columbus.

PETER J. SIALTSIS, B.B.A., B.A., LL.B.
