Irving's educational background includes a bachelor's degree in justice from American University, and a J.D. degree from Whittier Law School. He began his professional career briefly serving as a clerk in the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Los Angeles, California field office in 1980, before transferring to the United States Secret Service in 1983.
