PROFILE

David Brustman QC was admitted to practice in 1974 and called to the Bar in early 1975.

David is an experienced advocate practising in all areas of criminal law. His main field is the conduct of jury trials, in particular homicide cases in the Supreme Courts of various States and Territories. 

He was the Bar invitee to the review process undertaken by the Victorian Law Reform Commission in respect of the law of homicide in 2004 and was elected to the Bar Council in 1988-9.

He has appeared in many notable criminal matters in Victoria, Queensland and the Northern Territory for both Defence and Crown.

In former years, he appeared in many cases in the Family Court of Australia and will accept briefs in final, contested hearings in that Court.  

David is an active pilot of more than 50 years and appears and advises in various Courts in aviation related matters, civil, regulatory and criminal.

If asked nicely, he will play jazz or blues piano reflecting his previous part time career. This has nothing to do with the practice of law.
