Morley Torgov, born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, was called to the bar in 1954 after attending Osgoode Hall Law School. His preferred areas of practice are commercial and corporate matters, financial services (e.g. factoring and inventory loans and other personal property security transactions), real estate sales and purchases, and wills and estate administration.
Morley's secondary career is centred in the literary world. Author of six published books (a memoir and five novels), he's twice been awarded the Leacock Medal For Humor, The Jewish Fiction Prize, and a City of Toronto Book Award. In 1990 Morley was granted an honorary Doctorate in Literature by Laurentian University. A number of his works have been adapted for stage, screen, radio and television. His shorter humor pieces have appeared in the Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, New York Times, and Canadian Lawyer.
