About Dylan Finlay

I am a Criminal Defence Lawyer with Oykhman Criminal Defence. My strength as a lawyer is effective court room representation and persuasive writing, coupled with extensive research to uncover creative and unique defences, even where other lawyers may not see any. When not at work, I continue to ponder what strategy will bring my client the best outcome. Enjoying one’s work is the first step towards excelling at it, and criminal defence puts me in my element.

After earning my Juris Doctor (JD) at the University of Calgary, I articled (apprenticed) with Savage Oykhman Law, one of the top criminal defence firms in Calgary. During my articles, I was entrusted with my own cases, as well as conducting research, client interviews, court appearances, and writing applications for senior lawyers. Since law school, I have worked on over a hundred cases. I have represented people charged with: impaired driving, refusing to provide a breath sample, assault, assault with a weapon, and theft.

Every client I represented during my articles had his or her case resolved positively – of the cases that were resolved by trial, I was undefeated. One was an impaired driving charge, and the judge dismissed the charges based on my argument that my client was not properly given notice of the Crown’s intent to produce the Certificate of Analysis. Another involved 2 charges of assault. I convinced the Crown prosecutor to withdraw the first charge prior to trial. At trial for the second charge, I made the novel argument that because my client was arrested while she was sleeping in her bedroom (she was brought to the police station in her underwear) the police breached my client’s rights. The judge agreed and the second charge was ultimately stayed.

Working for senior lawyers has allowed me to garner experience in areas where many junior lawyers do not practice. The areas I have experience in are:

Glowing Reviews From Our Clients

Charges from outside of Calgary near Okotoks: Michael had helped me through this time with getting both charges dropped. Michael has been very thoughtful and professional throughout the tough times. He is the Top Lawyer in the Calgary area. I highly recommended him to anyone facing traffic charges.

D.P.

I would definitely recommend Michael Oykhman and his team. Not only were my charges dropped but the professionalism and empathy I was shown gave you confidence knowing someone was working just as hard as you would be to obtain the best possible result. For anyone looking for lawyer he is one of the best hands down.
