About

Morley is a senior practitioner with over 40 years of legal experience. During his first 10 years of practice Morley spent the majority of his time practicing property law and doing collection work. As a result of this experience he became very involved in Commercial Property Law and subsequently most areas of Corporate and Commercial Law and the Civil Litigation associated with it.

As a result of his vast experience in property law, the Province of New Brunswick (in consultation with the Law Society of New Brunswick) asked him, in January 2001, to become an adjudicator, to assist other lawyers in New Brunswick in the transition of properties from the Registry System into the Land Titles System. He is still an adjudicator assisting other lawyers when they encounter problems in certifying title to certain properties.

Morley has worked on Wills during his entire career and has worked closely with numerous experts in creating estate plans and trusts involving large Estates. Regardless of the size of the Estate, Morley prides himself on giving each client’s Will the individual attention required to meet their particular circumstances.

During his years of practice, he has litigated numerous cases in the Provincial Courts, the Court of Queen’s Bench, the Probate Courts and the Court of Appeal in New Brunswick.
