He attended SUNY Binghamton where he enrolled in the Philosophy, Politics, and Law program. After graduating, he went to Cornell Law School where he was a member of the International Law Review. Upon graduating in 1989, Mr. Stanford worked for a series of local law firms before eventually founding his own firm in 1995.
