Timothy A. Charshaf, Esq. | El Dorado Attorney at Law

Welcome to the Law Office of Timothy A. Charshaf, a Professional Corporation

 Your Interests are Pursued, Protected and Perfected through Responsible Representation


Timothy A. Charshaf, Esq. was born in San Francisco, California and has been a practicing attorney since 1989 after graduating from the University of San Francisco School of Law.  Mr. Charshaf represented the owners of large shopping malls, contractors, the Western Conference of Teamsters Pension Fund and hundreds of other businesses and individual clients for the first ten years of his professional career.  He gained invaluable litigation experience with near daily appearances in state and federal courts located throughout the Bay Area.

Mr. Charshaf opened a law office in El Dorado Hills, California in 1999 and continued his focus on real estate, business, personal injury, construction and all related trial work in El Dorado County, Sacramento County, Yolo County and Placer County.  He represents business and construction clients ranging from the sole business owner to companies with more than 50 employees.  Mr. Charshaf also represents home owners, landlords, tenants and investors in the purchase and sale of commercial and residential real properties. Righting personal injury wrongs remains of particular importance to Mr. Charshaf where someone or some company has acted with negligence or has intentionally disregarded the health, safety or well being of another.

Mr. Charshaf has successfully saved homeowners from wrongful foreclosure and has won many lawsuits and battles over easements, neighbor disputes, CC&R enforcement, home defects, nuisances, non-disclosures and in the buying and selling of homes.  In Christian v. Flora (2008) 164 Cal.App.4th 539, Mr. Charshaf was both the trial and appellate attorney who successfully argued and preserved his clients’ easement rights.

Business clients are represented from start up through day-to-day operations including incorporation, internal corporate compliance, business disputes, contract law, construction law, commercial property law, collections, employee and employer disputes, non-compete and unfair competition, partnership and shareholder agreements and disputes, wrongful termination and business buy-sell transactions.

As a personal injury lawyer, Mr. Charshaf has represented clients seriously injured by car crashes, professional malpractice, job related injuries and defective or dangerous conditions on land or place of business of another.

Mr. Charshaf personally handles your matter – he does not pass the file to a less experienced attorney.  Mr. Charshaf has worked for a “downtown” San Francisco law firm and has been a principal in a firm with other partners and associate lawyers.  He has been successful against the biggest law firms in California because he latches onto the case and will fight hard whether it is representing a client in a transactional deal or in litigation.  He is also pragmatic and cost effective – advising his clients of both the estimated cost and sacrifice a case-specific legal battle or transaction may entail before starting work.  Negotiation, mediation and alternative dispute resolution are sometimes the order of the day.  Going to court at other times is the only and best option. Mr. Charshaf first believes in thoroughly advising his clients of the law governing a specific situation and second to then legally proceed as the client directs.
