Middletown Lawyer Faces Criminal Charges for Practicing Without a New Jersey Law License, Prosecutor Reveals

    MIDDLETOWN, NJ – A lawyer who operated a practice in Middletown has been criminally charged with engaging in the unauthorized practice of law in Monmouth County. Allen Yusufov, a 37-year-old resident of Monroe Township, faces multiple counts of unauthorized practice of law and one count of uttering a forged instrument.

    Monmouth County First Assistant Prosecutor Julia Alonso announced the charges on May 25. The Financial Crimes and Public Corruption Unit of the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office had been investigating Yusufov since January. They allege that he provided legal services related to four real estate transactions that occurred between August 2020 and September 2022. Yusufov operated out of offices on Gordons Corner Road in Manalapan and Newman Springs Road in Middletown, with the latter location having a Red Bank mailing address.

    The transactions in question involved properties on Randall Drive in Manalapan, Devon Place in Marlboro, McKinley Drive in Ocean Township, and Woodruff Place in Hillside (Union County).

    Upon examining records, authorities discovered that Yusufov did not possess a valid New Jersey law license during the time he provided legal services. Furthermore, he possessed a forged document containing grammatical errors that falsely indicated his “good standing” to practice law.

    It should be noted that Yusufov is licensed to practice law in the state of New York.

    Yusufov was arrested without incident and has since been released, awaiting his first court appearance.

    Individuals with information regarding Yusufov’s activities are encouraged to contact MCPO Detective Robert Afanasewicz at the toll-free number 1-800-533-7443. Monmouth County Assistant Prosecutor Lawrence Nelsen, the Director of the MCPO Financial Crimes and Public Corruption Unit, has been assigned to the case.
