Stephan L. Skepnek was raised in Lawrence, Kansas. He graduated with Honors from the University of Chicago in June 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Germanic Studies. During his undergraduate years he was the recipient of the McKenzie Research Grant and F.L.A.G. Recipient.

During law school he worked as legal assistant at the Skepnek Law Firm and transitioned to an associate attorney role with the firm after graduation.
