Elijah H. McKinley graduated from the best STEM school in Pennsylvania--Germantown Friends School.  Destined to practice law while in high school, Mr. McKinley completed internships with Carl E. Singley, former Temple Law School Dean of Students, and Juanita Kidd Stout, Pennsylvania Supreme Court appointee.  It should be noted that Mrs. Stout is known as the first African-American female to be appointed to the Supreme Court, and her name forever ripples through time at the Philadelphia Criminal Justice Center which is now appropriately named the Juanita Kidd Stout Center for Criminal Justice.  

After high school, Mr. McKinley earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology at Penn State University.  While at Penn State, Mr. McKinley was gainfully employed while successfully completing an internship at Merrill Lynch, where he worked under the leadership and guidance of Vice President Geoffrey A. Thomas. 

Upon graduating from Penn State, Mr. McKinley moved to our nation’s capital to be an apprentice for real estate developer Imar Hutchins Esq.  During that time, Mr. McKinley attended law school at the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law wherein he also worked as a teaching assistant in Criminal Law for DC Senior Appelate Judge William C. Pryor. 

Immediately upon passing the Pennsylvania bar, Mr. McKinley was sworn to practice law before mentor Judge Leon Tucker in the judge’s chambers on April 25, 2011.  Shortly thereafter, Mr. McKinley clerked for Judge Glyniss D. Hill in the Major Crimes Division at the Juanita Kidd Stout Center for Criminal Justice.  

Mr. McKinley has since started his own private practice and relocated to California to gain additional experience in the entertainment industry (particularly film and music). Mr. McKinley offers comprehensive legal advice and counsel in the areas of criminal defense, real estate, corporations, privacy, taxes, entertainment, immigration, wills, trusts and estates, and more.
