About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

I have spent my entire legal career defending citizens accused of crimes.  I find my work deeply rewarding.  I think there is likely not a more noble calling than protecting the constitutional rights of those who have had their lives turned upside down based on mere accusations.

Wonderful Results
I was charged with an A Misdemeanor for having a pitbull mix in the City of Florissant. I hired David to defend my case and he was able to get the case DISMISSED (right before my wife was due to have our daughter)! David kept me informed throughout the case and was willing to go to trial if the case was not dismissed. I really liked the fact that David focuses primarily on criminal defense and is dedicated to criminal law.

Traffic Ticket
I received a ticket for going over the legal limit in a school zone. According to the ticket, I had to be present in court. Dave not only made it so that I did NOT have to appear in court, he made it so I did not receive any points on my license. He was quick and helpful!

Attentive and informative throughout the process. Highly recommend
Mr Brengle handled my case in Summer 2010. At every step in the legal process from beginning to end, I was constantly kept informed of my standing in my case. Every meeting he had with a prosecutor, every finding he made during research, reminding me several times about court dates, my responsibilities and schedule. I am a picky person about details and he gave me all I could handle. I rarely had a question that was not answered in his meetings with me. Even after the process he gave advice for any future issues that may arise with my case. The charges were reduced and a minimal fine was paid. I am very happy with the results.
