Our Law Firm

O'Brien, Devlin and Macleod has been serving Calgarians since 1977, beginning with Noel O'Brien, Q.C. and Brian Devlin, Q.C. They have become a highly-respected landmark in the Calgary’s legal community, developing into one of the foremost criminal defense and civil litigation firms in the province. Their reputation as knowledgeable, dedicated, fierce litigators is well deserved. Mr. O'Brien Q.C. is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.

Lawyers at the firm have successfully represented clients facing a full range of criminal charges, including many serious and high-profile cases in Alberta and other jurisdictions. Due to the complexity of cases handled by the firm, lawyers at O'Brien Devlin have extensive experience at all judicial levels including the Provincial Court of Alberta, Court of Queen's Bench, the Alberta Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. (Examples of these cases can be reviewed under Case Profiles)

Using persuasive negotiation skills, backed by solid courtroom performance, the firm has represented clients on complicated personal injury and medical malpractice cases covering a wide span of medical topics including whiplash, brain injuries, paraplegia, quadriplegia and multiple physical disabilities. Cases have involved injuries sustained during car accidents, medical procedures, police assaults and ski accidents.

Lawyers at O'Brien Devlin take a direct, rather than a team, approach to their cases to ensure that all clients receive a high level of personal attention from their counsel; it is important that you know who is handling your case, and that you are able to get in touch with that lawyer, rather than dealing with numerous, anonymous people.
