David Pivtorak

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.
