Got the result I needed.
Went to 3 lawyers and after talking to all hired Rovshan. I am glad I did. While I was not promised anything, I felt Rovshan will fight for me and he did. He got me what he said he will. I am recommending him now.

Passionate, Hard Working, Intelligent, & Result Oriented
I was arrested in September 2018 in Nassau County and charged with 4 counts of a Class A misdemeanor, probably the toughest class A misdemeanors to fight in Nassau County. After meeting with a couple lawyers, I got a referral and met with Rovshan, then retained him immediately. Rovshan met me after I finished my work in his Hempstead office – it was past 9pm, I was working for a huge bank at the time. He heard the details of my case and told me exactly what to expect and informed me from the start that it wouldn’t be an easy process. He immediately stood out as a highly educated critical thinker, an exceptionally hard working, and passionate defense attorney. His time as an ADA definitely In July 2020, exactly 22 months to the date of my initial arrest, Rovshan secured a deal for me that resulted in all charges being dropped to a sealed disorderly conduct violation. I made an already complex and brutal case even more difficult for Rovshan and his team when I was re-arrested in NJ, on similar allegations. Rovshan referred me to an exceptional lawyer in NJ who got me off on those allegations. In the meantime, I was still fighting my Nassau case and was incredibly fortunate to have a second chance to not get convicted of an A misdemeanor solely because of Rovshan’s determination and unique ability to of a defense position outside-the-box. Every time we were tested with a new obstacle, Rovshan worked extremely hard to help me overcome it and keep going. He fought for me inside the courtroom and outside of the courtroom; this case took a mental toll on me. I was afraid of losing a career I invested my life’s work in…having an open case for almost 2 years takes a mental toll on you. Rovshan was with me every step of the way and fought just as hard as I did for 22 full months. He never quit; that was the exact kind of lawyer I was looking for. Highly knowledgeable, professional, and a winner in the courtroom. In terms of price, from what I know Rovshan is competitively priced for a top-of-the-line attorney. He is the best of the best; he will do a better job for you than any higher priced lawyer would. The best part of working with Rovshan and his team is it felt like having an actual teammate and a fighter alongside me. Like I said, this open case meant everything to me and for 22 full months I felt like Rovshan made it his priority just as much as it was mine. For anyone who has legal issues in Nassau County or the New York City Area, I would absolutely recommend Sharifov & Associates. Rovshan is an especially brilliant and passionate defense attorney who will work as hard as he has to do deliver the result you need. Maintaining a status without a criminal record in society today is a huge deal for me and I would have never gotten there without Rovshan.

GOOD LAWYER
We came to Mr. Sharifov to get a second opinion on our case. We did not know if we were getting a good deal or not. He asked for our entire file, read it all, talked to us on several occassions, analyzed all facts and possible outcomes. He said we can try to do better but could not guarantee it. We decided to give it a try and hired the firm because we trusted Mr. Sharifov' s analysis of our situation. After several months of additional negotiations, Mr. Sharifov was able to get a better settlement of our case. We made the right decision by seeking another opinion from a more experienced lawyer. ________________

Excellent lawyer!!! A+
I was arrested on charges of grand larceny and possession of stolen property. After talking to several lawyers, I hired Mr. Sharifov who did not rush me wnen we met, and spent long time with me going over the charges, defenses, and possible outcomes. I always knew what was going on with the case and there were no surprises. Mr. Sharifov said that there will be no trial in my case and that most likely will settle it. On 5th or so court appearance, we got the deal my lawyer wanted. I could not get a criminal conviction and I avoided it. I am glad that I hired Mr. Rovshan Sharifov, who did not let me take an earlier deal that I wanted to just to put it behind me

Thank You
Mr. Sharifov represented me when I was arrested for petit larceny and possession of stolen property in New York. I got suspended at work. I was very nervous, could not sleep and afraid for my future. Mr. Sharifov explained the process to me, what to expect and that he can resolve it without any consequences. Although we had to go to court several times, the case ended just like my attorney anticipated it would. All charges were dismissed and got my job back. Thank you.

Was charged with a crime and faced with criminal record. Lawyers from Sharifov & Associates knew what result they needed to get to avoid consequences for me. They kept coming back to court and rejecting deals prosecutors were offering me. I trusted my lawyers, they knew what was the best outcome for me. Finally, and right before hearings, all criminal charges were dropped in exchange to sealed violation with no consequences and no record.

I was pleased!!!!!
I was recently a client of Rovshan Sharifov, Esq. and have nothing but absolute admiration and gratitude for how he handled my case. I was extremely nervous at the beginning of this whole ordeal, however, Mr. Sharifov walked me through the whole process and was honest regarding what my options were and laid out the best course of action on how to handle situations. I never doubted anything he said and most importantly, never felt like he did not have my best interests in mind as a client.

Was charged with a felony, and as the result, my green card was on the line and so is my life in the USA. Could not sleep thinking about it. Happy that I hired this firm. Both, Rovshan and Victor knew how the process works. They are very experienced and know well what they are doing. Prosecutor insisted on criminal conviction but my lawyers kept coming back to court for the result I needed to stay in the USA. Eventually, I got the deal we were looking for, and I did not not mind some community service.

The most reasonable representation that you will need
Unless your field of business requires continuing litigation, you have have probably never experienced the need to retain a lawyer or go through the arduous process of finding the best representation that you can afford. Here is where this team shines - they not only have a brilliant track record- but also simplify the process and walk you through any and all scenarios so you can have the right expectation for your case. I have retained their services based after a seriously tedious search and evaluation that included reading their reviews and ended with a friend seconding my choice (he had retained their council as well ). For a first encounter with a serious and LONG list of charges, my anxiety was quite high. After discussing the case with Rovshan and Victor, I had a much clearer picture on how the charges are typically compiled and what they meant. Subsequent court dates and hearings affirmed every single step this team had predicted including the outcome, which was acquittal. Access to your legal council may be equally important to you as their competence - it was for me. And I never had a single time when I needed to call or text where I didn’t get a response within the hour. Another important aspect is with such terrific advice and representation you would expect the fees to be exorbitant or unreasonable, which was not my experience- and I am not wealthy by any means. Furthermore, Rovshan provided council on a completey separate matter (financial) and didn’t rush my call or even accept my offer to pay for it. At this point it is given that I am relieved with my acquittal- but even more assured that I have direct access for excellent legal representation.

Outstanding lawyer!
Rovshan Sharifov is a an excellent trial lawyer! My brother was accused of forcible touching his passenger which seemed to be a hopeless case to defend. Although he was innocent, we knew all the odds were against us. There was no concrete evidence that he did not do it, complainant was a daughter of a former police officer, two other females and detective testified for prosecution. We felt so wronged but could only leave it up to Mr. Sharifov to represent my brother and fight for his innocence and justice. It was a tough time for our family and Rovshan Sharifov was with us every step of the way. He was very patient and understanding as it was our first time facing law enforcement and really took his time explaining all the terms, details and possible outcomes of the case. With his competence, professionalism, trial skills, knowledge and hard work for almost a year before this case was tried, he cross examined all witnesses in great details and showed inconsistencies. He fought very hard to prove my brother's innocence at jury trial. The verdict came out and my brother was found Not Guilty; and we were all in tears. Rovshan Sharifov is not only an outstanding lawyer but also a great human being. Could not ask for a better lawyer than him. Thank you for all you have done and special thanks to Victor Shulov for being there with us in the court throughout the trial. Best team ever! Highly recommend!

CASE DISMISSED
In March my father had been involved in an accident that totaled 4 vehicles. When the police showed up, they found my father’s prescription medication bottles in the car. They had arrested him and took him to a hospital where he was chained up in handcuffs to the hospital bed. My dad had his blood tested and they had found TWO prescription drugs in his blood stream. He was facing an 1192.4, which is about the worst DUI charge you can face. I called about 5 different lawyers before I found I Rovshan from Sharifov & Associates. A bunch of lawyers that I called flat out told me that they wouldn’t bother talking to me until I paid to retain them. Rovshan was the only one that took his time to listen to my story, explain my options, and make some suggestions without pressure. I can’t explain how much better I felt knowing that I had him in my corner. Something that particularly stuck out to me was when I said to Rovshan “are you going to defend my dad as though he were your dad” and he replied “I treat every client like they are family” Rovshan went above and beyond. He followed up with the doctors for us, reached out and collaborated with others in his field to make sure that he was building the best possible defense, and most importantly he communicated with us every step of the way. When the date came to settle everything in court, we were all hoping to get the DUI dropped from a CRIMINAL 1192.4 to a traffic INFRACTION 1192.1. When Rovshan and my dad walked into court, the whole thing was settled in less than 5 minutes. The prosecutor thumbed through the 60 pages of paperwork that Rovshan and his team had spent compiling, whispered something to the judge, and the judge had said CASE DISMISSED. My dad went from a hell hole of a situation, having been charged with a DUI, and was let off completely free, not even a parking ticket. Thank you so much to Sharifov & Associates for saving my dad’s future.
