David was born November 25, 1943, in Eldorado, Illinois. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky in 1965 and graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Law in 1967. Following his admission to the bar, David served as a law clerk to B. T. Moynahan, Jr., Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, after which he served for just over eight years as United States Magistrate for the Eastern District of Kentucky. He left the bench on January 31, 1980, to enter into private practice.
His practice initially consisted almost entirely of litigation, including business litigation, federal tort claims and the defense of white collar criminal charges, primarily in the federal courts. With the passage of time, his practice transitioned to now focus on the representation of business clients in the railroad, construction, manufacturing and other industries.
David is admitted to practice before the courts of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Kentucky, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and the United States Supreme Court. He is a member of the Fayette County, Jessamine County and Kentucky Bar Associations and is also a member of the National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel.
