Stanley Cheiken is a Philadelphia native. He graduated from Cheltenham High School in 1984. The son of a professional and businessman, Stanley was exposed to his father's various ventures at an early age.

He received his undergraduate degree from Dickinson College in 1988. Thereafter, Stanley attended Villanova University School of Law, graduating in 1991. He began his career as a trial attorney for a small firm that focused on complex commercial litigation.
