About Elena Ryland

I am a criminal defence lawyer practicing with Oykhman Criminal Defence. I am a passionate and fearless advocate for my clients. In every case, I work to find innovative solutions, empower my clients, and advocate fiercely on their behalf.

I received my Law Degree from the University of Alberta, where I focused on Criminal Law and developed my advocacy skills, both inside and outside the classroom. I was an active member of the Student Legal Services Criminal Law Project (SLS), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping low-income individuals navigate the criminal justice system. I was both an in-court advocate, and was promoted to supervise volunteer law students. SLS formed the foundation for my passion and skill in criminal law.

In my first year of law school, I was selected to compete in the Deans’ Cup Moot, a competition for the year’s strongest advocates. In my final year of law school, I represented the University of Alberta in the Gale Cup Moot, a national advocacy competition for criminal and constitutional law.

Before practicing at Oykhman Criminal Defence, I articled at a well-renowned criminal defence firm in Edmonton, where I assisted on many high-profile cases, including murder, sexual assault, kidnapping, and drug trafficking. Since completing my articles, I have practiced exclusively in criminal defence, handling a wide variety of criminal charges including assault, drug offences, property offences, and impaired driving.

I also have previous work experience as a summer student for the Alberta Crown Prosecution Services. This experience has given me a unique insight into the perspective of Crown Prosecutors, enabling me to better assist my clients.

I know that each client has individual needs and interests when it comes to their criminal charges. My varied experiences working in the criminal justice system have allowed me to develop creative and effective solutions for each of my clients. I am thrilled to serve my clients as part of the exceptional team of lawyers at Oykhman Criminal Defence.

Savage Oykhman Law has a fantastic team of hardworking experts, who cared greatly for my case, as I know they will for... your's as well. Daniel Murphy sympathized with my circumstances, while advocating with determination for a reasonable judgement. As I agreed with the professionalism of Daniel Murphy and his assistant Christine, and their consideration towards the sensitivity of my unfortunate circumstances. It was worth giving them the chance to solve my issues, to my surprise, they went above and beyond my expectations, while keeping my mind level throughout the process. My charge ended up being dropped. I honestly cannot thank-you enough, for all your hard-work and help!read more

Anny Wang is a pleasure to work with! I had consulted with a few lawyers prior to meeting with Anny Wang, and she... definitely stood out. She is unassuming, knowledgeable, and gives concise advice to move forward. She provided diligent updates and resolved the issue much quicker than expected. She truly takes care of her clients. Highly recommended!read more

I was represented by Anny Wang (and Danielle) and both were a pleasure to deal with! My case was withdrawn in the end... after their hard work and recommendations. She was easy to deal with, went into thorough details and whenever possible, reached out to myself with updates. In general though, everyone at Savage Oykhman were easy to deal with, including the front desk. While I hope to never run into needing their services, don't hesitate reaching out to Anny for any issues you may run into, I will certainly be keeping her card! Definitely earned the 5 star review and praise.read more

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.
