I am a lawyer operating in Calgary and Ottawa, representing clients on criminal, quasi-criminal, and regulatory charges at both the trial and appeal level.

My criminal defence practice operates under the philosophy that all individuals are presumed innocent and have the right to a dedicated defence and a fair trial.

I also assist individuals and institutional clients in the areas of civil litigation, insurance claims, and environmental/health regulation violations.

Yoav Niv deserves 5++ stars for the exceptional professionalism, perseverance, and most importantly belief in our son’s innocence. Our son would not have been acquitted without Yoav’s expertise. We highly recommend Mr. Niv if you require an excellent lawyer.

I went to Yoav last year after a difficult situation presented itself to me. He was extremely understanding and over the months that followed his experience, skill and diligence proved instrumental in ensuring that the truth in my case was shown and justice was served.
I cannot possibly recommend him more highly.

Yoav takes the time to do his utmost to ensure the very best outcome. We highly recommend his services.
