“I contacted Mr. Sharifi when I was looking for a lawyer to handle my tech startup. I needed someone who was knowledgeable and had experience with trademark registration and business formation. We quickly set up an appointment and he took the time to give me an initial consultation detailing the steps needed to begin my new venture. After concluding our meeting, I knew I had found an excellent lawyer to handle my business. He is knowledgeable, personable and takes the time to explain everything in detail. I have since hired him and my dealings with Mr. Sharifi have been stellar! He is detail oriented, a forward thinker and has the client’s best interest at heart. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a reputable and ethical lawyer who uses his knowledge and expertise to get the best results for his clients. He is excellent to work with!”
