DENIS J. SAWYER
BARRISTER & SOLICITOR
Education & Experience
I was born in New Brunswick, grew up in Ottawa and later returned to the Maritimes in my late teens. Once I finished high school, I immediately began my academic journey at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John. Once I completed my Bachelor of Arts I enrolled at the Universite de Moncton to complete my legal education.
I had the opportunity to practice primarily criminal prosecutions until I relocated to Grande Prairie, Alberta in the fall of 2012 where I continued to be heavily involved in Criminal Litigation, including the prosecution of Federal Offences. I had the opportunity to appear before the Provincial Court of Alberta, the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta and all levels of Court in my native province.
Over the past 5 years, I have transitioned my practice to primarily focus on Solicitor matters such as Real Estate, Wills and Estates, as well as Business Law.
Personal Bio & Interests
When I am not at the office, I can usually be found on my motorcycle touring and travelling. I am fluently bilingual and have served on several community boards.
While the practice of law is certainly taxing, I have always enjoyed the opportunities surrounding my practice especially volunteer work in the community. I look forward to this new chapter in my professional career and expanding on the positive atmosphere here at Rigler Law in aiding our clients to achieve their goals.
