About Me

David Pivtorak has represented clients in federal and state courts throughout California. From an early age, Mr. Pivtorak exhibited a distinctive sense of honor and justice and naturally gravitated towards environments that nurtured those character traits within him. Not surprisingly, Mr. Pivtorak’s life has been dedicated to eliminating that which he saw as innately unfair; from standing up to bullies on the playground, he now fights corporate bullies and insurance companies in the courtroom. Mr. Pivtorak brings his unique knowledge and experience to the table to help clients when they need him most.

  • Spencer Caswell Young

    David is a top notch personal injury advocate. He just received an excellent six figure jury verdict on a car accident case that many other attorneys would not take. Dave is a straight shooter and is great at going right to the heart of a matter, New York style. I have known Dave for 4 years now. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone who needs personal injury, bankruptcy, or foreclosure advice/representation.
