About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

For more than 30 years, Dave has focused on representing people and their businesses in Arrowhead, Glendale, Peoria, Deer Valley and  Sun City.  He has had many of the same business clients for decades and now works with the second generation of the family members running those businesses.

         Even the most complex issues can be handled by Mr. Brnilovich.  He has handled business buyouts and sales, partnership breakups and business mergers.  He has created companies and had them dissolved.  Most every type of real estate issue has been addressed by him.  He has represented buyers and sellers of land, homes, apartments, shopping centers and industrial buildings.  He has represented brokers and agents, lenders and investors, landlords and lessees. 

         Mr. Brnilovich has represented scores of clients in a wide variety of lawsuits in state and federal court such as vehicle and equipment financing, engineering and architectural disputes, illegal subdivisions, flooding and drainage issues.  He has tried cases involving Will contests, trust disputes, misrepresentation and fraud, trade name infringement; non-compete agreements, franchises and distributorships.

         Many long term clients first came to Dave for a one hour consultation. Often, the person’s issues were resolved with common sense advice during that initial meeting.  Frequently, those same people have returned to Mr. Brnilovich or have referred others to him years later with more complex business or personal issues that required arbitration or a lawsuit.  Such long-term relationships have made him a common fixture in the West Valley.

         He has been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America® for his work in real estate and holds an A-V Preeminent™ Peer Review from Martindale Hubble. (Meets very high criteria of general ethical standards.)

Collected on a judgment that was going nowhere!
My $16k judgment against a defendant was just sitting. David was referred to me by another company that is in the same business as I am. David quickly surmised the situation and started in on collecting our judgment. The defendant was quite reluctant to pay which did not deter David. He had the sheriff visit the defendant to collect! Twice! Presto, judgment satisfied. Exceptionally knowledgeable of our business and exceptionally effective in executing our judgment.

Long term relationship summary
I have used the services of David Brnilovich for over 15 years. During that time he has worked on corporate issues for my company as it has grown including creating new entities, reviewing business opportunity legal risks and mitigating legal liability and exposure of my company and business pursuits. His best advise helped me identify hidden risks in an opportunity which I passed on after his analysis of the legal structure of the business plan. Those that invested in that business lost 100% of their investment. The result to me was I declined to invest and saved $50,000. It has been both a personally and financially rewarding relationship.

David Brnilovich has been our attorney for approximately 25 years. He has an excellent track record, is fair, honest and goes the extra distance for a successful outcome in our litigation. I have recommended him to several people and every single one has given me glowing feedback about their experience with Dave.
