David was born and raised in Oklahoma. He attended Oklahoma State University and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration in 2002. The following year David entered law school at Oklahoma City University. He worked days as a Deputy Court Clerk at the Oklahoma County Courthouse and attended law school in the evenings. As a Deputy Court Clerk, he gained valuable insight and experience assigned as the clerk for a District Court Judge with a felony docket. David earned his Juris Doctor, cum laude, in 2007, graduating in the top 10% of his class.

Following law school, David became a full-time Assistant District Attorney in Oklahoma County. In that role, he was assigned to a variety of different types of cases, including but not limited to civil-asset forfeiture, expungements, bond forfeitures, process-server licensing, and civil commitments. David also served on the Legislative Committee for the District Attorneys Council, which is responsible for reviewing and proposing legislative changes on matters impacting state prosecutors.   

 

In 2014, David became the General Counsel for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections at only 33 years of age. He was responsible for all legal matters of DOC, which included overseeing all cases in litigation, providing legal advice to executive staff and members of the Board of Corrections, drafting and reviewing contracts, policies, and legislative proposals, and ensuring DOC's compliance with state and federal laws.  He was also responsible for overseeing and supervising the work of four other attorneys and all other staff assigned to DOC's Office of the General Counsel.     

Knowing the time was right to put his experience and knowledge to work for those in need of legal services, David formed Cincotta Law Office PLLC in 2019 and became Of Counsel with Butler & Flynn PLLC in February 2020.  David is very personable, empathetic, and an outstanding communicator.  He is dedicated to his clients and keeps them regularly updated.  David understands all aspects of the law and welcomes clients with any legal concerns.
