About Ryan Patmore

Ryan Patmore is a Calgary and interior BC based criminal lawyer practicing exclusively in the area of defending those charged with criminal offences throughout Alberta and interior British Columbia. A born and raised Calgarian, he spent much of his life in the Okanagan Valley where he has extended his practice. Mr. Patmore is fluent in French, and accepts Legal Aid and private retainers throughout Alberta and British Columbia. He is a member of the Law Society of Alberta, the Law Society of British Columbia, and the Calgary Defence Lawyers Association.

Mr. Patmore obtained his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from the University of Calgary. He then attended Law School at the University of Manitoba where he excelled at Criminal Law and Procedure, and received Honourary recognition for his advocacy skills and exceptional performance in moot court competitions.

Mr. Patmore’s career in Criminal Defence began with Legal Aid, where he committed himself to providing access to justice for hundreds of people charged with offences under the Criminal Code of Canada, the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, and other Provincial statutes. In that capacity, he had carriage of minor to extremely complex criminal cases very early on in his career, and successfully defended his clients in Courts and Tribunals throughout the Prairies. This also allowed him to provide mentorship to law students, and gain valuable insight working alongside some of the brightest legal minds in Canada. Through this invaluable experience, Mr. Patmore became adept early on at identifying weaknesses in the Crown cases against his clients, and exposing violations of their legal rights guaranteed under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Mr. Patmore is able to offer his clients a unique perspective as Defence Counsel through his years of experience working alongside members of the Judiciary, and from both sides of the adversarial system. He worked as a Judicial Clerk in the Criminal Division of the Provincial Court of Alberta for several years, and was subsequently selected to assist senior Crown Prosecutors in the Criminal Intake Unit of Manitoba Justice through all stages of the preparation of complex, high profile criminal cases in Provincial and Superior Courts.

Mr. Patmore has extensive criminal trial experience arguing in Courts across Canada, including the Provincial Court of Manitoba, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, the Provincial Court of Alberta, the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, and the Alberta Court of Appeal. He is actively engaged in the complex and evolving area of Criminal Charter litigation, and has lectured law students at the Alberta Bar Admission Course on all matters germane to criminal advocacy and trial strategy.

Mr. Patmore has the necessary knowledge and skills to advance the best defences in any criminal case. Throughout his diverse career he has successfully defended ALL criminal charges, including:

  • Impaired Driving/ Driving Over .08
  • Impaired Driving Causing Death/Bodily Harm
  • Driving Prohibitions

  • Possession/Trafficking/Production of Drugs
  • Serious Personal Injury Offences (Assault, Assault with a Weapon, Aggravated Assault)

I highly recommend going with this team. From the moment that I stepped into their offices, I knew that I was in good... hands. I had the privilege of working with Elena Ryland as my attorney and I couldn't be happier. She was extremely professional and well-educated on the subject matter. She was able to negotiate a deal that favoured all parties involved.read more

I got in touch with Michael Oykhman directly based on the complexity of the legal matters I was facing. He was... incredibly professional and gave me a great deal of confidence and knowledge that it would be handled to his best efforts. The results were exactly that, the best desired outcome and a huge weight taken off me during a dark time. I would highly recommend Michael and his team to anyone looking for the best outcome possible!read more

I was first able to speak to Michael Oykhman himself and felt understood and confident that his staff would take care... of my legal matters. I am happy to report that not only have my matters been resolved but they were exactly in line with my desired outcome. I never felt like I had to compromise my position regarding the events that lead to needing legal services. While my initial junior associate couldn't oversee my file to completion, my gratitude goes to Greg Janzen who took on my case midway through and advocated for me and saw my charges withdrawn in a timely matter. Greg went the extra mile to show up for my appearances even when they were outside the initial legal matter at hand, which surprised me and made my life so much easier. I was out of province for 5 months of the year and thanks to Greg was able to focus on my priorities instead of being limited and interrupted. If your considering a lawyer or in doubt about the value of legal services, do yourself a favor and consult this firm. While there are many names to consider, if you find yourself needing criminal defense lawyers, I am so thankful I made the decision to have this firm represent me.They have been supportive, understanding and expedient. I also saved money and appreciated that I wasn't hit with hidden fees and wasn't footing a bill that was inflated or unwarranted. You definitely get great value! I also super appreciated the face time and timely communication at each turn. Not only were my charges withdrawn but so too were my fingerprints and photos with police destroyed so it's like nothing ever happened. A dream come true. Excellent customer service from start to finish on top of the legal support! Thank-you all so much, and while I hope not to need you in the future, I know I will be in good hands and will refer anyone in similar circumstances to your firm in the future. Cheers!read more
