David raised two daughters and formed his own successful law practice, Brown & Welsh, P.C. His professional accomplishments include being first chairman of the Commercial Law & Bankruptcy Section of the Connecticut Bar Association and advising the Connecticut General Assembly on the adoption of commercial laws. He lectured on business law matters and was an adjunct professor at his alma mater, the University of Connecticut School of Law.
