    That only applies if the phrase is the subject of a sentence.

    If it's the object, it has to be 'David, my brother and me ...'

    Josh, please note that a better title would have been David, me and my brother.

    Re: What is the correct way to say this phrase?

    It is always helpful on this forum if you post a complete sentence and, if relevant, the context. The remainder of a sentence can make a big difference to the answer to the question "Which is correct ...?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
