In 1997, David moved his family to the Pittsburgh, PA area, because he believed the area would be a great place to raise a family. He joined the Tucker Arensberg P.C. litigation department and within a year of joining the firm, he got the experience that he had been looking for by trying two cases solo in the Alleghany Common Pleas Courts. In 1999, he began working with Charles Alpern at Kiger & Alpern. Attorney Alpern mentored him, and he was able to gain a significant amount of experience in all trial law matters. Through the years, he developed his skills and has become a highly reputable attorney in the State of Pennsylvania as a result. In 2006, attorney Brumfield joined Charles Alpern at the newly established Alpern Schubert P.C. Personal Injury Attorneys. After joining the firm, he was able to learn from attorney Richard Schubert as well, which only gave him, even more experience. Attorney Schubert is one of the most respected trial lawyers in Western Pennsylvania.

Lebanon, and since relocating to Pittsburgh, he has been heavily involved in community activities to give back to the city since it has offered so much to his family.
