In 1998, he graduated an IDF reserve legal officers’ course and now serves in the Military Prosecutor’s office. This experience provides him with the advantage of a broad perspective on both sides of the law, having worked for the prosecutor and the police. In 1999, he opened his firm and has since represented private clients. By 2002, he was named by the media as one of the “next generation” of Israel’s up-and-coming criminal lawyers. Since then he has won many media awards. In 2009, he was chosen by “Calcalist” as one of Israel’s leading criminal lawyers being the youngest on the newspaper’s list.

Adv. Sharon Nahari manages each case in his firm thoroughly and struggles for his clients based on his world view that every person is entitled to representation even if he committed the most severe offense, when the firm’s motto is “Legal creativity”.
The criminal department’s team is comprised of a lawyer with 20 years of experience, 2 lawyers who previously worked in the state attorney’s office, providing a unique view from the other side of “the ring”, and a retired judge, who provides a judge’s unique point of view once the case is analyzed.
The team of lawyers is dedicated to each case, investigating and looking for findings, with special emphasis on preliminary proceedings for charges (arrests, investigations and hearings at the State Attorney’s Office, closing cases). The firm keeps the rights of the suspected, in face of the tendency of the police and the media to accuse suspects before being found guilty.
