About Moira McAvoy

I am an Associate Lawyer at the Full-Service Criminal Law Firm of Savage Oykhman Law practicing exclusively in Criminal Defence.

I obtained a Juris Doctor (JD) from Bond University in 2017, graduating with First Class Honours. During law school I was awarded several academic awards, including ‘First in Class’ for Criminal Law and Procedure. After law school, I completed the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA) exams in 2018 and commenced my articles shortly thereafter. I was called to the Bar in Alberta in September 2019.

During my articles, I was fortunate to work at not one, but two, of the best criminal law firms in Calgary. I finished my articles at Savage Oykhman Law, under the personal guidance and supervision of the senior partner in the firm, Ian Savage. Although I assist clients on a broad range of criminal matters, I have a strong focus on impaired driving cases and Alberta Administrative License Suspension (AALS) appeals. Thanks for the mentorship of senior counsel in the firm, I have been able assist with hundreds of impaired driving trials and license appeals. I am confident I am well trained to identify Charter breaches and triable issues in impaired driving cases, as well as other areas of criminal law.

My legal training thus far also provided me with valuable court room experience, allowing me to become a fierce advocate for my clients, in and out of the courtroom. Further, I understand the unique situation that each client faces when charged with a criminal offence and I am flexible and creative when obtaining positive results for my clients. Know that I always give 100% to whatever I do. Whether it be competing in Canadian National Championships as a synchro swimmer, or fighting to get my clients the best result possible, I don’t give up.  Likewise, I never stop learning. I am a member of, and participant in, the Criminal Defence Lawyers Association, taking every opportunity to learn about the latest cases, defences, and strategies.

When I’m not in court or at the office working on my clients cases, you can find me volunteering with Calgary Legal Guidance, or coaching young athletes through the Artistic Swimming community.

I am very thankful to have come into contact with this law practice. Danielle is an exceptional lawyer, and someone who... connects with the values that she represents. The experience, intelligence, and advice through this firm was exceptional. This also extended to any individual who represented the firm that we worked with. The knowledge and expertise they offer is substantial and valuable. The ability to easily adapt during a global pandemic seamlessly did not go unnoticed. I wish I could offer feedback on how to improve, but I wouldn’t change a thing.read more

Everyone i interacted with here was extremely friendly and helpful. Anny Wang helped me feel at ease about my situation... that all of the other lawyers i consulted with did not. Overall my experience here was concise and clear, and I ended up with the best outcome I could've hoped for. She even offered to lower her pricing because of my financial situation. I highly recommend seeing them if you need a lawyer!read more

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
