Rory Ziv is a well-qualified and highly experienced criminal lawyer. He was born and raised in Cape Town, a beautiful city at the southern tip of Africa, in a country divided along racial and social lines. Through observing conflict between people and their government, he grew to realize that he wanted to fight for fairness, truth and justice. With him, it’s personal!

He obtained a Psychology Degree, with honours, from the University of British Columbia and his law degree from the University of Alberta. He fell in love with Edmonton and trained at a prominent impaired driving and criminal defence law firm. After obtaining his law license, he began building his criminal law practice accepting all types of cases in order to broaden his knowledge base. He has trained many students, most of whom have continued in the profession to have successful careers. He also volunteers many hours of his legal services to those in need.

As Rory’s practice has evolved, he now conducts some of the most serious cases, including murder, complex sexual assaults, drug crimes, and dangerous offender applications. Rory still has a keen interest in impaired driving law and carries a large case load in this area. In fact, many of his reported decisions are on this topic.

Rory subscribes to the maxim that “A healthy mind needs a healthy body” and he enjoys swimming and cycling. He has a goal of cycling from Edmonton to Vancouver. He also loves to spend time with his active border collie, appropriately named “Justice”.
