David Trachtenberg, Lawyer, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Military for dedication, achievements, and leadership.
At the age of 18, Dr. Trachtenberg entered the United States Army. He had earned a Bachelor of Arts from Hartwick College in 1944, and he wanted to further his education. He knew the Army could make it possible for him to do so, which is what motivated him to work so hard during his time there. Until 1946, he demonstrated success in his various military positions, returning home after serving as a POW in Lorient, France. Dr. Trachtenberg left the military as a decorated veteran, holding the Bronze Star with Oak Leaf Cluster, as well as the Purple Heart.
In 1947, Dr. Trachtenberg began furthering his education by earning a Master’s from the State University of New York at Albany. In the following years, he found success as a teacher. He taught at numerous locations across the state of New York, including Greenville Central School and Middletown High School. By 1973, Dr. Trachtenberg had earned a Doctor of Education from New York University. With his new credentials, he was able to become the assistant superintendent of instruction for the Enlarged City School District of Middletown. However, in 1982, he felt called to pursue a new career in the legal system. Dr. Trachtenberg proceeded to attend the University of Florida, acquiring a Juris Doctor in 1982. After being licensed by the Florida Bar, he was hired by the Florida 4th District Court of Appeals. He remained there until his retirement in 1993 as a career staff attorney. As a testament to his success, Dr. Trachtenberg is featured in numerous editions of Who’s Who in American Law, as well as the 25th editions of Who’s Who in the South and Southwest.
