About Greg Janzen

I am a lawyer at Savage Oykhman Law, a full-service criminal defence law firm, and am based at our Calgary Branch. Like everyone at Savage Oykhman Law, I practice exclusively in Criminal Defence Law. In that capacity I have successfully defended hundreds of individuals and have conducted numerous trials, including those in Provincial Court and the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta.

Approach to Advocacy

I am genuinely passionate about the work I do, and am proud to be part of a team-oriented firm that works collectively to ensure that its clients are given the best defence possible. In most cases, I find a way to resolve my client’s matter to his or her satisfaction without the need for a trial, but I am also highly adept at case preparation and courtroom litigation.

Education and Awards

I graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2016, specializing in human rights law and criminal law. While in law school I was fortunate to be the recipient of several academic awards and honours, including:

  • The Honourable Wallace Nesbitt Memorial Scholarship, and
  • The National Association of Japanese Canadians & Roger Sachio Obata C.M. Prize in International Human Rights Law (for highest standing in the course “International Human Rights Law”).

Prior to law school, I obtained a PhD in philosophy from the University of Calgary. In my pre-law career, I was a philosophy professor at Mount Royal University and the University of Calgary, teaching a wide variety of courses at both introductory and advanced levels. I consistently received very positive student evaluations.

I also published extensively, mainly in the philosophy of mind and psychology, but also in ethics. See some of the works I have published here:

After law school, I articled at Savage Oykhman, where I have remained to continue providing legal assistance to my community.

Community Involvement and Outreach

I have always been eager to give back to the Alberta legal community through teaching. Following an invitation to teach jurisprudence at the University of Calgary Faculty of Law, I seized the opportunity to give back. I taught Philosophy of Law in the winter semester of 2020, and I look forward to returning to teach the course again in the winter semester of 2021.

What I can do to Help

Fortunately, my rates are very competitive, and occasionally I even assist those who cannot afford counsel through Legal Aid. Although I represent clients charged with any type of criminal offence, I have a particularly strong focus on:

With the support of our Savage Oykhman Law network of lawyers across the country, there is no file too small or too large for me to handle.

Dylan Finley handled my case. Right from the start he was polite, professional, attentive and he delivered on all of... his promises. I had a case where it was looking really bad for me. I did everything Dylan told me to do and he took care of the rest. My life was filled with stress and worry about the case. Dylan handled my case like a pro and I received the outcome that I desired. I highly recommend Dylan to anyone seeking a criminal defense lawyer. He has changed my life and given me the opportunity to have a bright future. All you have to do is:1) Hire Dylan.2) Listen to Everything Dylan tells you.3) Leave everything else to Dylan. He won't let you more

Dylan Finlay is an professional and effective criminal defence lawyer. Dylan was my lawyer for an assault charge and... was excellent throughout the entire process. He advised me how to turn myself in and what to expect, and then helped me build a case while I waited for trial. He was responsive to my emails and his confidence and knowledge relieved my stress. Furthermore, he was reasonable priced for the quality of defence he provides. I am very thankful for his services and got a favourable result on my case. I highly recommend his more

My lawyer was Dylan Finlay. He was excellent. His advice and professionalism secured me an extremely favorable... outcome in my case. Even more so than I originally thought possible due to some aggravating circumstances. I would highly recommend this firm. Dylan was available throughout the entire process by phone and email. I never once felt like my money was wasted, on the contrary. It was well spent. Going through the court process can be a tedious process. Dylan made the navigation much more

If you need a defence lawyer for anything then Dylan is the person you need to see. I was was facing a very difficult... case that involved assault with bodily harm which I was sure wasn't going to end well for me. However, Dylan presented my case to the judge at trial with great professionalism and with his great expertise in Law convinced the judge that I was not guilty. Throughout my whole ordeal, Dylan had been working behind the scene to built a solid defence for me. This really helped me out because it meant I did not have to get involved and have this problem control my life. Dylan relieved my stress and answered all my questions with the right answers to put me at ease. He was always available when ever I needed and would answer my emails right away.My words here cannot truly describe how great Dylan is, but I would highly highly highly recommend him to defend your case!read more
