About Manvir Gill

As a lawyer at Strategic Criminal Defence, I have the privilege of being part of the highly skilled team at the Calgary Branch. This invaluable opportunity allows me to work closely with experienced professionals who are renowned for their expertise in the field of criminal defence. As a lawyer, I am fully committed to practicing exclusively in criminal defence law. During my experience at the firm, I have had the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience and make meaningful contributions to the successful defence of individuals facing a wide range of cases, including criminal charges, traffic offences, and administrative penalties.

I obtained my Juris Doctor degree from Bond University in Australia, where I acquired a comprehensive legal education. Building upon this foundation, I pursued further qualifications by completing the Graduate Legal Diploma, which enabled me to fulfill the requirements to become a practicing lawyer in Australia.

I first began my professional journey as a criminal legal assistant, where I gained firsthand experience and insights into the complexities of criminal law. Working closely with experienced lawyers, I witnessed the profound impact that skilled legal representation can have on individuals’ lives. This experience further solidified my passion for criminal law and fueled my commitment to advocating for justice. Drawing from my time as a legal assistant, I developed a deep understanding of the legal system and honed my skills in legal research, case analysis, and client communication.

Thorough preparation, attention to detail, and staying updated on legal developments are the cornerstones of my work. I prioritize open communication with clients, providing guidance and reassurance while actively listening to their concerns. Ultimately, my goal as an articling student is to make a positive impact on the lives of our clients. By combining my passion for advocacy with a comprehensive understanding of criminal defence law, I am dedicated to providing the highest level of representation

Michael Oykhman is a very professional lawyer and the first time I spoke to him he asked about my situation and he gave me some very helpful advice and assistance and also told me his odds of winning this case. During the days I was in contact with micheal I could feel the level of professionalism of him and his team, he is able to respond back to you with any questions you have within 24 hours. In the end he was as successful in helping me win my case as he had initially promised me.If you are still struggling to find a lawyer, I highly recommend Michael Oykhman.

Laura Bobyn my lawyer was amazing and so supportive of my case and me. She fought with Tenacity to get my victory.

She is the best and I would recommend her to anyone of my colleagues or people in my life! Thank you, Laura!

This law firm is your go-to!

I had the pleasure of working and trusting my case with Joseph Beller. I had 2 counts against me, and in the end, Joseph was able to present and use his “fighter skills” in court to have my charges lowered to a conditional discharge. On top of this, this firm follows its mission values statement by being ethical, transparent, available, and very friendly. Joseph and his team treated me with the utmost respect from start to finish. Thank you again, Joseph! I hope to never call you again 😊


Joseph Beller, from the very beginning when I first contacted and then retained Joseph as my representative I felt I was in good hands. When I emailed him with a question. I got a prompt response. We communicated often on the phone as needed. Joseph kept me informed as to the process. He made sure I knew all the potential results so I knew and could plan for the different outcomes. I know this his his job. But appreciate his professionalism and also his ability to not make me feel any extra stress. Well done.
