David Zaritzky Brown

Managing Partner - Global Practice Lead

David possesses more than twenty-five years of blue-chip Canadian and U.S. immigration experience including stints in major metropolitan centers in Toronto and Silicon Valley. David’s practice is global and he has represented leading companies in many industries including health care, high tech, bio/pharmaceutical, scientific instruments, graphic arts, gaming and special effects, consulting, and financial services. He prides himself on his long-term client relationships based on trust, excellent service, and a partnering approach.

David is a frequent commentator on immigration matters. He has been running a long-standing webinar series for corporate clients as well as contributed to legislative initiatives by assisting SHRM, AILA, and individual corporate clients. He has testified multiple times at the Nebraska Judiciary Committee on various immigration issues including proposed restrictive immigration legislation and the impact of the Supreme Court’s ruling on DOMA in United States v. Windsor, 113 S. Ct. (2013). 

David was born in Canada and moved to the U.S. in late 2000, where he held a TN, H-1, and then Permanent Residence before becoming a U.S. Citizen in 2008. He’s experienced the immigration bureaucracy firsthand and lived to tell about it…

David is an avid runner and loves nature and travel. He enjoys raising his three children Parker, Penelope, and Thatcher with his wife Jenni. His son Thatcher was born with underlying developmental delays and requires full support; this has spurred David’s passion for creating more accessibility for kids with disabilities.
