David founded the firm in 1990 with his wife, Leslie. Both had worked for large national law firms but wanted to establish their own firm, focusing on practical solutions to complex problems. That goal developed into the firm of Snyder & Snyder, LLP, which provides result-oriented service to its clients in the areas of Telecommunications, Environmental and Real Estate Law. David graduated from Long Island University (B.A., Economics 1977) and from Hofstra University Law School (J.D. 1980). He is admitted to practice in New York, New Jersey and the District of Columbia, and is authorized to practice before the United States Supreme Court. In addition to serving as the firm's managing partner, he has written extensively on telecommunications law, and served as an adjunct professor of federal telecommunications law at Pace University Law School.

The in-depth experience of Leslie Snyder and David Snyder in real estate, municipal and environmental law formed the nucleus of a boutique practice ideally suited for the development of telecommunication and municipal facilities. Leslie graduated from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Finance and Commerce in 1982 (B.S. Economics, summa cum laude) and from New York University School of Law in 1985 (J.D.) where she was an Editor of The Journal of International Law and Politics.
