Senior Associate Stanislav Sharovsky
Stanislav is a Senior Associate with Gerstman Schwartz, & Malito, LLP. Prior to joining the firm, Stanislav gained valuable legal experience in a boutique legal practice specializing in serious personal injury actions, complex medical malpractice claims, and high profile civil rights litigation for victims of false arrest, police brutality, and other constitutional violations. He has represented numerous clients in contentious cases against some of the largest defense firms in the country.
As a litigator with Gerstman Schwartz, Stanislav practices extensively in federal court and handles a diverse subset of cases ranging from labor and employment, discrimination claims, commercial disputes, and civil claims under 42 U.S.C § 1983. At the state level, Stanislav handles a wide array of civil matters including contract matters and business litigation, administrative law, zoning and property disputes, as well more traditional tort matters such as defamation and personal injury.
In addition to a diverse civil caseload, Stanislav is also a part of the firm’s criminal defense practice. As an advocate for those wrongly prosecuted and a strong believer in government accountability, Stanislav understands that every exoneration is a potential path for vindication in a subsequent civil suit for claims of false arrest or malicious prosecution. The interplay between criminal defense and civil actions seeking redress for the violation of constitutional rights has never been more important than it is in today’s legal and political atmosphere. It is more critical now than ever to have an attorney on your side that can successfully navigate this seemingly insurmountable legal labyrinth.
As a proven advocate, Stanislav firmly believes in the age old adage that one should speak softly, but carry a big stick. This philosophy informs his approach to litigation – to advocate vigorously and relentlessly on behalf of his clients but to pursue resolution wherever possible; to be the statesman, and the scholar; the speaker and the fighter. In the end, the goal is the same: to obtain the best possible result for our clients.
Stanislav is an attorney duly admitted to practice law before the Courts of the State of New York as well as the Eastern, Southern, and Northern Districts of New York.
