Our team
Zharov Group has carefully selected the very top environmental lawyers, each with unique experience and expertise, to make up a well-rounded team of individuals who work well together and with our clients. We are seasoned professionals and acknowledged leaders in our practice.The "team" aspect of our work is what makes Zharov Group special. Our individual lawyers, each on their own, are the best in their field, but we do not believe that is sufficient for our clients. Together, working as a team, our California environmental litigation attorneys are able to collaborate and contribute their individual skill sets and experience, and we are able to provide our clients with better legal service. Working in a lean, collaborative, creative environment, absent the distracting white noise of big firm bureaucracy, allows us to put our clients' needs first and focus exclusively on those needs. Our team is committed to doing just that.

We are a team of ambitious and optimistic professionals who are passionate about their work
