About Shervin Sabet

I am a criminal defence lawyer at Savage Oykhman Law (an association of independent law practices). Together with Strategic Criminal Defence, we are a Full-Service Criminal Defence Law Office, with central offices across Western Canada and Ontario.

My practice is centered around my clients. I strive to achieve the best possible outcome and ensure that my clients are fully informed through the entire legal process. I work closely with my clients to employ a strategy that is best suited to achieve their goals.

Education, Accomplishments, and Career

I received my law degree from the University of Calgary. During law school I was heavily involved with Student Legal Assistance (SLA), a pro-bono legal clinic that provides legal representation to low-income residents of Calgary and the surrounding area. In my first year with the clinic, I was selected as the volunteer that demonstrated the greatest commitment to improving access to justice. I was later appointed as the Early Case Resolution Coordinator for criminal matters in the organization. In this position I was entrusted with the responsibility of mentoring other students and reviewing hundreds of negotiations with prosecutors to ensure that we obtained the best results possible.

After law school, I articled then worked with a senior criminal defence lawyer who has since been appointed as a Justice of the court of King’s Bench. Under her guidance I gained invaluable experience assisting on serious and complex cases including murder and sexual assault. I also independently maintained a full case load of a variety of low-complexity criminal cases.

Following this, I worked in the Legal Aid Alberta Bail Hearing Office. In that capacity I have helped secure freedom for over 1000 clients within 24 hours of their initial arrest.

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.
