I am an Associate Lawyer at Savage Oykhman Law practicing exclusively in Criminal Defence.

I obtained a Juris Doctor (JD) from the University of Ottawa in 2015. During law school, I was actively involved in the University of Ottawa Community Legal Clinic (UOCLC) and Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC). Prior to law school, I graduated on the Dean’s List from the University of British Columbia and received a Bachelor of Arts, with a double major in Political Science and Music.

I completed my articles at Calgary Legal Guidance (CLG), a poverty law clinic dedicated to providing legal representation to marginalized individuals. While at CLG, I represented numerous individuals charged with criminal offences. My experience at CLG has provided me with valuable courtroom experience, but more importantly, it has helped me understand the unique challenges my clients face when charged with a criminal offence.

I currently volunteer with Calgary Legal Guidance, and am on the executive team of the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers – Western Chapter (FACL Western). I am fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese.

I was charged with assault for a minor scuffle. I knew I was in good hands with Michael’s solid legal advice and preparation for my pending case. Because of his knowledge, advice and legal expertise, all charges were dropped. Michael and his team take pride in providing not only the right result, but quality customer service along the way. I heartily recommend Michael Oykhman to anyone seeking legal counsel!

Successful Case Results

Break and Enter, Theft Under $5000, Possession of Break-In Instruments, Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose, Charges Withdrawn

Airdrie Provincial Court
Case Number: 23500891

Our client was facing a number of serious criminal charges after it was alleged that he had broken into a home and had stolen a number of items.

Upon being retained we immediately sought disclosure, including a fingerprint analysis. We determined that the identification of our client as the accused could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

We negotiated with the Crown and they withdrew all of the charges.

Successful Result: Charges Withdrawn

Domestic Assault, Charge Withdrawn

Airdrie Provincial Court
Case Number: 7620521

Our client was charged with assault against his ex-wife. He was also served with an Emergency Protection Order (EPO) that contained several serious allegations.

Once we were retained we immediately sought disclosure and began resolution discussions with the Crown. We found several extreme discrepancies between the allegations in the EPO and what the complainant told police. We used this to challenge the complainant’s credibility, and the assault charge was withdrawn weeks after our client’s first court appearance.

Successful Result: No Criminal Record, Charge Withdrawn

Impaired Driving and Over .08, Charges Withdrawn

Calgary Provincial Court
Case Number: 7519721

Our client drove through a checkstop, indicated he had some drinks that evening, and was noted to have glassy mirrored eyes and a smell of alcohol on his breath.  He failed the roadside breath test, blew .140 on the evidentiary instrument, and was charged with impaired driving and driving over .08.

Once we were retained, we set the matter for trial and filed a motion alleging a violation of our client’s Constitutional rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.  Days before trial, we successfully negotiated the withdrawal of all charges.

Successful Result: No Criminal Record, Charges Withdrawn
