A dual-citizen, David lived overseas for a number of years after high school and served for almost four years in the Israel Defense Force, first as a combat infantry soldier and later as a Liaison Officer to the United Nations. Following his Honorable Discharge, David enrolled in Queens College, where he earned degrees in Psychology and Labor Studies. During his last of year of college, David completed an internship at the Kings County District Attorney's Office. David found himself intrigued by the law as well as the adversarial nature of the criminal justice system. He was accepted to Brooklyn Law School and chose to concentrate on criminal law and procedure.

Following his first year as a law student, he returned to the Kings County District Attorney's Office as a summer intern and began to utilize his education and developed a concrete understanding of its applicability in various legal quandaries. During his second year of law school, he was a Legal Assistant in the United States Attorney's Office, Eastern District of New York, Organized Crime Bureau. He took night classes during law school in order to continue working and gained practical experience, as well as the trust and respect of his peers and superiors. Following his second year of law school, he once again returned to the Kings County District Attorney's Office for their summer internship program. At the end of that summer, David was recruited to the Homicide Bureau for the subsequent school year as a Legal Assistant. Although still a student, David was assigned several cases including a participating role in two homicide trials.

Upon graduation in 1992, David was awarded his Juris Doctor. David passed the bar exam and became a licensed attorney.

David's dedication and ambition was rewarded as he was the first in his class of 110 junior prosecutors to be promoted to Senior Assistant District Attorney. David spent the next four years prosecuting cases that frequently made headlines. David also educated police officers on various legal and procedural matters, such as applying for wiretaps and search warrants. During David's prosecutorial years he was commended numerous times.
