Jamil Sawani’s practice focuses on the areas of criminal and quasi-criminal litigation, civil forfeiture proceedings and certain niche civil and corporate litigation matters.
Jamil understands that the legal system is often stacked against the accused and he fights every day to even those odds. Whether it be defending his client’s Charter rights in a federal trafficking and conspiracy trial or making closing arguments to the jury at a murder trial, Jamil puts his skills in the courtroom to work for his clients in order to get results.
With over a decade of trial and litigation experience, Jamil has been sought out by clients across Canada to represent them at their hearings, trials and appeals. He has appeared as counsel and has successfully argued a great number of precedent-setting cases before all levels of court in Alberta, as well as in other provinces.
Jamil is also passionate about giving back to his community and offers pro bono mediation services to couples, families and businesses struggling with conflict. In furtherance of this service, Jamil received his designation as Qualified Mediator (Q.Med) from the Alternative Dispute Resolution Association for Alberta (ADRIA) in 2018.

I ALWAYS go with chadi’s, and they NEVER let me down. always worth the money I paid, never lost a case. if I can refer anyone it would be “Jamil Sawani”, the man always answers the phone at anytime, shows up for court when I need to be there EVEN when I don’t know that I have court. wouldn’t go with anyone else as long as I need a lawyer. thanks guys !! – S.K.
Awesome team! Jamil got right on my case and got the best for me, took time with me, and help me through! I highly recommend Chadi and company, and will continue using them! – J.N.
After being disappointed with some other lawyers, I was referred to Jamil Sawani by a friend, and have to say that was the best decision I have made.
Very courteous, and respectful to any matter at hand. He will make sure to take his time to explain everything clearly so that everyone is on the same page. Other lawyers use legal mumbo jumbo terms and expect you to understand, and would get frustrated if you don’t. however, he made sure to use clear English, and explain again if need be. He was prompt and would return any correspondence in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants to get their matters resolved professionally and properly.
Great asset to Chadi & Co. – E.S.
Jamil Sawani helped me out with a builders dispute and did an excellent job! I recommend him and Chadi and Company for your legal needs. – F.I.
