About Dan Murphy

I am a senior lawyer at Savage Oykyman Law. I have extensive experience as a criminal trial lawyer and have both prosecuted and defended hundreds of criminal law cases throughout Ontario, Newfoundland and Labrador and most recently Alberta. In Newfoundland and Labrador, I was the youngest partner in the firm Jewer Murphy & Griffin. While in Ontario, I practiced as a criminal trial lawyer exclusively. I have practiced for the last year in Red Deer as a prosecutor in one of the busiest jurisdictions in Alberta.

I spent four years as a prosecutor in Newfoundland and Labrador, acting as the sole prosecutor on the Burin Peninsula and gained a deep knowledge of criminal law.  I transitioned this to defence work in Toronto and throughout Southwestern Ontario where I appeared at all levels of court, successfully defending people charged with offences ranging from common assault to attempted murder.

I obtained a Juris Doctorate in Law from Osgoode University in 2010.

I attended at The University of Western Ontario and obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree with honours in Political Science in 2004.

I was awarded a full scholarship from The University of Western Ontario, and completed my Master’s degree in international Relations in 2008.

I am a strong believer in the need for not only a strong advocate; but a need for transparency and mutual respect between a lawyer and his/her client.

Through my experience as both a prosecutor and defence lawyer, I understand intimately what is needed to successfully negotiate with prosecution offices and more importantly, what to do in the event such negotiations fail.

I have successfully assisted hundreds of clients through the court system in a transparent, respectful and knowledgeable manner in Toronto and throughout Ontario, and look very much forward to bringing that skill set to Edmonton with Savage Oykyman Law.

Glowing Reviews From Our Clients

I was facing a criminal charge as result of a domestic violence incident, contacting Michael put my concerns at ease. He got my charges dropped with no criminal record. If you want to sleep well at night, don’t hesitate to contact him. He’s known to be the best around, a “stellar” criminal defence lawyer.

Michael Oykhman represented me in my DUI case and was successful in getting my charges dropped. Micheal is extremely professional and was great in explaining everything to me. Michael Oykhman is the best there is and I would highly recommend him to any one I know.
