Son of immigrants.
Defender of freedom.
and the fight to defend it.
Brnovich (burn-uh-vich) is the son of immigrants who fled communism in the former Yugoslavia in search of freedom. Like many immigrants, they believed that with hard work, they might enjoy a better life in America and secure opportunities for their children.
Freedom isn’t just a word for him.
Brnovich took full advantage of those opportunities – first by attending Arizona State University for his undergraduate degree, then by going on to receive his law degree from the University of San Diego School of Law.
Brnovich began his career as a prosecutor and served as a JAG officer in the Army National Guard.
Brnovich’s commitment to upholding the law and dealing fairly with the men and women he represented began early.
Fighting as Prosecutor
Brnovich spent the first years of his career as a prosecutor at the local, state, and federal levels, including serving as Assistant United States Attorney prosecuting public integrity crimes and criminal activity occurring in Indian Country. He eventually left the U.S. Attorney’s Office to serve as the Director of the Arizona Department of Gaming — a law enforcement agency that works along with Tribal regulators to ensure the integrity of Indian gaming.
Restoring Trust as Attorney General
In 2014, when Arizonans had lost trust in the office of Attorney General, Brnovich set his sights on restoring that trust. He ran, defeated the incumbent, and in January 2015 became Arizona’s 26th Attorney General. Brnovich was successful in restoring trust in the state’s office of Attorney General. As a result, he was re-elected to a second term in November 2018.
As Attorney General, Brnovich most recently argued at the United States Supreme Court, to defend Arizona’s election integrity laws, including its requirements for in-precinct voting and restrictions on ballot harvesting. His administration has also been instrumental in battling human trafficking and supporting border security. Brnovich is now challenging the Biden Administration’s violations of federal immigration laws and the crisis they have created.
In addition, Brnovich has been instrumental in protecting the liberties of Arizonans and small businesses during the COVID pandemic, upholding religious freedoms, defending the Second Amendment, and securing record levels of restitution for consumers.
Brnovich believes in doing the right thing at the right time for the right reason.
Fighting for you
Brnovich believes in fighting for consumers, not attorneys. He believes government should use a light regulatory touch and not infringe unnecessarily on the lives of the men and women it represents. He believes in maintaining a level playing field for businesses and consumers. And he respects the Constitution as a document of guaranteeing the most precious rights his parents fled communism to enjoy.
Brnovich and his wife Susan live with their two daughters in the same Phoenix neighborhood where he grew up.
