“I was a Deputy District Attorney for the County of San Diego for 30 years.  As such, I worked under three District Attorney administrations.  During the administration of Bonnie Dumanis, I saw a once fine organization fall to mediocrity.  This was principally due to the internal office politics and cronyism fostered by Dumanis and those she appointed to positions of authority.  As can be seen by the law enforcement organizations’ endorsements, she is not trusted by them to honestly and effectively lead the office and partner with them in the fight against crime.  Bob Brewer is an experienced prosecutor and trial attorney.  His military service and his accomplishments in the legal field are exemplary.  He is a man of integrity and he possesses the skills and insight to put the D.A.’s office back on track.  That is why I am casting my vote for Robert Brewer for District Attorney.”

Stephen R. Anear

"I was a Deputy District Attorney in San Diego County from 1993-2008. I am happy to join my former colleagues and mentors/supervisors in endorsing Bob Brewer for District Attorney. The office needs someone at the top who has long-standing, proven effectiveness as a trial attorney active in the courtrooms of this county where the sleeves roll up and the heavy lifting is done and where there can be no success without credibility. When I was hired, trial work was esteemed and valued as a necessary part of the machine. This has not been the case in recent years. The lack of appreciation for trial work at the top naturally results in lower trial statistics, a lower number of felony convictions, an increase in plea deals to lesser charges, lower sentences, and an overall weakening of the law. In the end the community is put at risk. Bob Brewer as a respected courtroom advocate has the leadership capabilities necessary to return DA’s office in San Diego County to the pre-eminent status that it once enjoyed."

Mara Allard


“Bob is without question one of the most powerful and effective courtroom advocates I have ever seen.”

Colin H. Murray


“I am proud to support Robert Brewer for District Attorney and salute his courage in deciding to run. The People of the County of San Diego deserve a highly competent, forthright, and ethical district attorney whose sole motivation is to do justice and whose only aspiration is to do the right thing in any given case. Bob Brewer will make such a D.A. and will foster a top-down culture of pure pursuit of justice devoid of any personal or political agenda.”

Kim-Thoa Hoang


“I served with the 2 previous DAs and, after she was elected, Dumanis appointed me to be in charge of all political violations.  In a short period of time it became apparent she was using the office for her own political gain and not the public good.  I retired rather than watch her destroy a great office and she has continued to abuse the office for her own personal benefit.  Bob Brewer will return the office to what it once was before she ruined it.”

A. David Stutz


San Diego badly needs a District Attorney who views the office as something more than a political steppingstone.  I believe that Bob Brewer would base his prosecutorial decisions purely on the merits of each case.  He would run the Office more efficiently and equitably than it has been over the last 10 plus years.  I heartily urge a vote for Bob Brewer for District Attorney.”

Paul Morley


“I’m endorsing Robert S. Brewer for the office of San Diego County District Attorney in the upcoming June, 2014, election. I didn’t make this decision lightly. It comes only after having discussed the many problems within the Office with a number of current and former deputy prosecutors and investigators. I’ve also investigated Bob Brewer’s qualifications for the job and have talked with him a number of times about his hopes and aspirations for the Office. I’ve found Mr. Brewer’s qualifications to be impeccable, his honesty and integrity to be irreproachable, his motives to be pure, and his plans for the Office to encompass ideas and proposed changes that are sorely needed. For these reasons and many more, Robert Brewer has my support and endorsement for election to the important position of the next San Diego County District Attorney.”

Robert C. Phillips


“It’s well past time for change in the Office of District Attorney.  Bob Brewer is the kind of person and lawyer who will restore to the Office honesty, integrity and effective, objective advocacy in the search for justice.  These are values the people should expect in their District Attorney.  He has my full confidence and endorsement.”

Jo Kiernan


“As a retired Deputy District Attorney and someone who has known Bob for years, I am most happy to endorse Bob’s run for office.  He is an outstanding lawyer whose character for honesty is above reproach.  San Diego needs Bob.”

William Darrell Holman


“I was a Deputy District Attorney in San Diego County for eight years, and I have worked with Bob Brewer as his law partner for almost a decade. Bob is unquestionably the best candidate to be our District Attorney. He is the most ethical, hard working, and skilled trial lawyer I have ever known. Bob is also a dynamic and supportive leader who has managed numerous prosecutors and lawyers in private practice for more than 30 years. I am very proud to be Bob’s friend and colleague, and I enthusiastically endorse him for the office of San Diego County District Attorney.”

Randy S. Grossman


“As a former Chief Deputy District Attorney for the San Diego District Attorney’s Office, I am proud to join hundreds of local law enforcement officers in endorsing Robert Brewer for District Attorney.

I was hired by District Attorney Edwin L. Miller, Jr., over 30 years ago to work in a office then nationally known as one of the best and most professional in the country. Mr. Miller avoided political gamesmanship. Impartiality and objectiveness in handling cases was the professional norm during his tenure.

Today much of that legacy is gone. Politics and power are now the critical factors determining day-to-day operations. Employee morale has been declining steadily. It is time for new leadership to bring back professionalism to the Office of the District Attorney. I’ve known Bob Brewer for over 30 years. He has a long and exceptional history of legal accomplishments in both the public sector and private practice. He seeks to become D.A to serve the public, not to build a power base. I’m confident Bob Brewer is the right person to lead the Office and will be a great District Attorney for San Diego.”

What They are Saying

”Brewer has the personal and professional experience that makes him ideally suited to be the District Attorney for San Diego County.  A decorated combat veteran, accomplished former prosecutor as a deputy District Attorney and assistant U.S. Attorney, and premier civil and criminal defense lawyer, Bob brings a wealth of experience necessary to lead San Diego’s largest law firm.  His leadership skills, management abilities and relentless pursuit of excellence will enable Bob to serve the people of San Diego County in an exemplary manner.”

Edward D. Chapin


“It’s time for a change at the San Diego DA’s Office.  New blood is needed at the top—and Bob Brewer has the intelligence, background, and independence to make a great DA.  Bob worked with me when I was LA County DA—and  was regarded as one our best and brightest—and throughout his career has maintained the highest standards of integrity and fairness.  Bob  knows San Diego—and will bring a breath of fresh air to the office.”  
John Van de Kamp
Former California Attorney General and LA District Attorney
“Bob Brewer’s word is his bond.  He is honest, fair and dedicated to the highest principles of justice.  I heartily endorse Bob Brewer for District Attorney.”

     Mark F. Adams

"It is time the city embrace a District Attorney of Bob Brewer’s knowledge, spirit and dedication.  What an opportunity we as a city have in electing Bob as our next DA."

                                                                                                                                                Robert Richley


“I agree with the comments made by the retired deputy district attorneys, the current workers and the vast majority of law enforcement in that it is time for a change in the office.  Robert Brewer is well qualified and a man of integrity.  He will bring about the changes so many of us seek.”

     Kelly Rand


“Robert Brewer will absolutely have my vote for District Attorney.  He is intelligent, extremely hard working and, above all else, one of the most ethical people I have known.  He will be extremely dedicated to the people of San Diego and the office of the District Attorney.”

    Robert A. Cocchia  


“Bob Brewer will make an outstanding District Attorney. Like Bob Brewer, I also served as a federal prosecutor for many years. I also was selected to follow Bonnie Dumanis as a Juvenile Court Referee in Juvenile Court and took over her caseload and courtroom. Based on my personal experience with both candidates, and having personally observed their handling of legal matters and decisions, I believe I am in a unique position to say that the choice is CLEAR. I am voting for Bob Brewer.”

Hon. Maria Teresa Arroyo (Ret.)


“Bob is known to be very skilled in the courtroom and also has the top-flight administrative skills needed to manage a large public law office.  His ethics are beyond question, and he is a largely apolitical person who simply believes in public service.”

Candace M. Carroll


“Bob Brewer is a model of professionalism and courage.  His integrity and commitment to public service will protect us.”

               Charles H. Dick, Jr.
Attorney at Law
“Please continue to vigorously work for change at the DA’s Office. Those of us who are still here, and cannot publicly speak for fear of retaliation, thank you.”

Deputy District Attorney
"Bob is solid, skilled, highly experienced and I have confidence in him."
Nicholas Boylan

"I retired after 30 years as a prosecutor in the San Diego District Attorney’s and City Attorney’s Offices.  I handled two cases where the defendants were represented by Mr. Brewer.  He is a very capable and professional attorney and an expert in white collar crime.  Mr. Brewer will be an excellent district attorney."

                                                                                                                                                Tricia Pummill




"If first impressions mean anything, you will be impressed when you meet Mr. Brewer or hear him speak.  I consider myself fortunate to have been able to meet and hear his story about the trial and conviction Mr. Brewer led in a major espionage case.  He is a decorate veteran and San Diego should be honored that he is willing to serve our community as our DA.  Thank you, Robert, for stepping up!"

                                                                                                                                                Tim Morton
                                                                                                                                            Native San Diegan
                                                                                                                                                CEO, Westland Financial Services, Inc. 




"If it is important to you that San Diego have a competent person of honor and decency in the position of DA, Bob Brewer is the only choice!"

                                                                                                                                                Chris W. “Doc” Wood


“Our endorsements are given much consideration and demonstrate that you have proven to be a leader we can count on to represent us and our communities.”

Linda LeGerrette

President San Diego Unity League


“As a Certified Family Law Specialist, I know how important it is to have a District Attorney who cares about children and families, and will work to protect victims of domestic violence.  Bob has the “heart” for this task, and the leadership skills necessary to inspire the office to work every day to prosecute individuals who commit such crimes, and work with law enforcement and the community to prevent family violence.”
     Sharon Kalemkiarian
“We need a person who’s fair to everyone.  Robert Brewer is that person!”
     Robert A. Garcia

          RADM Gar Wright, USN (Ret.)

“Bob Brewer’s background, experience and temperament make him an ideal candidate for District Attorney.  He is universally trusted and respected by his colleagues in the legal community.  I enthusiastically endorse him for this office.”

     Leslie Branman Smith

Colin H. Murray
Baker & McKenzie




“I retired in March 2013 as Assistant District Attorney for Los Angeles County after a 37 year career in the District Attorney’s office. I know an accomplished prosecutor when I see one. Robert is the best of the best.  I am proud he is my friend. Robert will be a great District Attorney for the people of San Diego County.”

Patrick Dixon
Retired Assistant District Attorney, Los Angeles


“When it comes to Bob Brewer, the people of San Diego can be assured of this:  he is beyond reproach, dedicated to the core, uncommonly bright and tireless.  Whether you agree with him on every issue or not, you will always find him a person of uncompromising integrity deserving of universal respect.  He will be a dedicated public servant, and I have no doubt he will make the people of San Diego proud.”
     Michael J. Coffino
“I wholeheartedly support Robert Brewer for DA.  He is insightful, knowledgeable and hard-working.  San Diego would be lucky to have him as its DA.”
    Lisa J. Damiani
     The Damiani Law Group
“Although I do not now currently live in San Diego, I have a perspective on Bob (Robert) formed over 40 years of friendship.  Bob, as a highly decorated Captain in Special Forces in the top secret MACV SOG unit during the war in Vietnam, was universally regarded as one of the most capable and courageous officers in a unit of very capable and courageous people.  I have followed his career since then, watching as he tried and convicted many of the most dangerous criminals in our society, from contract killers to foreign spies to major dope dealers.  His absolute dedication to public service, impeccable integrity, and proven leadership in myriad situations makes him eminently capable of leading San Diego’s District Attorney’s office to a new level of competence and performance.  He is far and away the very best choice for your city.”
    E. Patrick Gallagher
     Thomson Reuters
"Bob is 'Law Enforcement's Choice' for a reason!"
Marco Garmo
“I happily endorse my old friend and Army Special Forces comrade Bob Brewer for San Diego County District Attorney. Bob has demonstrated throughout his highly decorated military career and very successful legal career the highest standards of courage and integrity.
With Bob Brewer as our District Attorney, we can be assured that the office will be carried out with strict attention to the law and not used as a political stepping stone while the crime rate in San Diego County rises at an alarming rate. We need a district attorney that is more concerned about the mounting list of victims than accumulating political chits for runs at future political offices.”
Superior Court Judge Lawrence Stirling (Retired)
“Bob Brewer is a dynamo and I know he would make a terrific D.A.”
   Robert J. Bell

     Peter Goldberger
“Bob is a phenomenal lawyer and is an ideal candidate for DA.  We need more prosecutors with his depth of experience, fairness and common sense.”
     Michael Hercz

“I knew Robert Brewer when he was a great federal prosecutor.  He will be a great DA!”

     Hector C. Perez
“Bob is an outstanding attorney, good guy and will make an outstanding District Attorney.”
    Roger Perkins
“Bob was one of the first people I worked with on moving back to San Diego in 1990 and I know him to have a very strong work ethic and high level of integrity.  I have no doubt that he will make an excellent District Attorney for the County of San Diego.”
    R. Clayton Welch
“Bob is an American hero.  We trusted him to protect us and we should trust him to represent us.”
     Gideon Ariel, Ph.D. and Ann Ariel, Ph.D.

Steven Boudreau

David Lundin


"I have experienced first-hand the politicization of the current DA's office and look forward to a DA that puts safety and constituents ahead of politics.” 

Laurie Madigan


"Bob is an exceptional individual, passionately committed to serving. We met him in person and were inspired by his warmth and authenticity, and the strength of his values.  He will make an extraordinary District Attorney."

Jason Jameson


"I know Bob Brewer to be an honest man of great integrity who will work tirelessly as District Attorney.  It's time for a DA that puts public safety above politics."

 Tyler Hicks


"As a member of the only police officer's association in the county to not endorse any candidate, I, as an individual, endorse Mr. Brewer."

David Bavencoff, Jr. 


“It’s time to get partisan politics out of the local justice system and to restore integrity to the DA’s office.  The blacklisting of judges who disagree with the DA’s prosecutors is, to my mind, unconscionable and undermines the very foundations of jurisprudence.  It’s time for a change.  It’s time for Bob Brewer.”
Jim Abbott
“Put simply, I doubt there is a candidate more qualified for any particular elected position than Robert S. Brewer, Jr. for District Attorney of San Diego County.”
Mark H. Baker
“Bob is a highly ethical, effective and well-respected throughout the San Diego legal community.”
Sabina Clorfeine

“I have known Bob Brewer as a federal prosecutor, private attorney and friend since we worked together in the early 1980s when he was an Assistant United States Attorney with the United States Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles and I was an FBI Agent in the Los Angeles Field Office investigating white collar crime and civil rights violation cases.

Bob was among the elite federal prosecutors I worked with during my FBI career of 28 years.  He was a very competent, decisive, respected and fair-minded prosecutor with the highest degree of personal and progessional ethics, integrity and standards.
I’m confident that Bob has the requisite wisdom, knowledge, experience, character and leadership qualities to carry out the duties and responsibilities of the District Attorney for San Diego County in a highly honorable, professional and effective manner.”

Steve Alan Tanner


"Bob Brewer brings quality to and elevates the quality of every organization he gets involved with, be it a law firm, an attorney group, or a public service organization.  The quality, efficacy and public trust of the San Diego DA’s office would improve immeasurably with Bob Brewer at the helm."

Archie Wright
“I have had the privilege of knowing Bob for more than 35 years.  We served as fellow prosecutors in the office of the United States Attorney.  Bob was tough, fair, smart, prepared and a great leader of our office.  No candidate is better suited than Bob to hold the position of D.A. of San Diego County.  He will serve with distinction!”
Bert Deixler
“Bob is a brilliant litigator.  San Diego is lucky to have him.”
Timothy W. Tuttle
“San Diego badly needs a District Attorney who views the office as something more than a political steppingstone.  I believe that Bob Brewer would base his prosecutorial decisions purely on the merits of each case.  He would run the Office more efficiently and equitably than it has been over the last 10 plus years.  I heartily urge a vote for Bob Brewer for District Attorney.”
Paul Morley
“Bob Brewer is the right man at the right time.”
Maurile Tremblay
“The DA’s Office that I grew up as a prosecutor in and love has been degraded into an ineffective, political, and retaliatory bureaucratic machine, where the search for justice is often weighed against political outcomes.  We need a strong, ethical, and compassionate DA, one who truly understands and appreciates his deputies and their work-ethic and judgment, and does not just pay them lip-service.  Please continue to fight the good fight.  In due course, any of us who cannot currently openly voice our support for fear of retaliation, will rise to your side and do so.”
Deputy District Attorney


“Bob brings a degree of ethics and passion for justice without politics that is unmatched.”
     M. Clay
21-year law enforcement veteran


“We need some change.  Someone that will look out for the good of San Diego, for San Diego, and will strive for justice in all he does.”

     Michael Doherty

“In working closely with Bob Brewer over the years as his legal assistant, I have developed a high regard and respect for his character and his work ethic.  He is a charismatic, highly competent, extremely focused, and committed individual.  Under his outstanding leadership, and with his undeniable courage and discernment, the District Attorney’s Office will exceed San Diego’s expectations for professionalism and public safety – without politics.”

     Denise Swafford

“I have known Bob Brewer for 45 years, since our first year of law school.  All of  the endorsements I have read focus on his integrity what a good lawyer he is, and the value of his experience as a manager of lawyers (That is something they do not teach you in law school.)  No one has mentioned however his sense of humor, which is usually soft spoken and subtle.  This will serve him well as he deals with running the largest group of attorneys in the county.  I have not been in court with Bob, but I have played golf with him.  He is very good in a sport that takes patience, humility and concentration.  He keeps everyone in a positive mood, because that is who he is.  I am sure that Bob will make an outstanding and effective D.A.”

Ray Mercado

“I am a retired Deputy Sheriff and I support Robert Brewer.”
John (Jack) Smith
“Integrity and honesty are two words that come to mind when working with Bob.  Good luck.”
