David graduated from Williamston High School in 1974. He received his Associate of Arts Degree from Schoolcraft Community College in Livonia, Michigan, in 1976 and his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Management from Northwood University in 1979. He was a forward on scholarship on the basketball teams for both schools. He then obtained his Juris Doctor Degree from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan in 1982.

In 2008, he was appointed unanimously by the Michigan Supreme Court to serve a three year term as a commissioner for the State Bar of Michigan. He was also an adjunct law professor for five years at Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan, teaching sports law. He is currently an adjunct law professor at Baker College, at the Jackson, Michigan campus, teaching torts and business law classes.
