After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics in 1968 from Fordham University, Ken attended Cornell Law School, where he graduated with a Juris Doctorate in 1971. He was admitted to the New York State Bar in 1972 and the U.S. District Court, Northern and Western Districts, and the U.S. Court of Appeals, Second Circuit in 1975. In 1976, he was admitted to U.S. Supreme Court and in 1994, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. His affiliation with professional associations includes past director of the Onondaga County Bar Association and past chair of the Lawyer Alcoholism Committee for the Onondaga County Bar Association.

His civic organization involvement includes acting as Commissioner to the Kaye Commission on Alcoholism in the Profession and VP for the Syracuse Senior Citizen Housing Corporation. He also received a State Recognition Award during his tenure as chair of the March of Dimes.

Prior to his employment at Mackenzie Hughes, Ken was a Legal Intern for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. He also interned at IBM, where he conducted research, handled general corporate law and worked on the U.S. Government's antitrust action against IBM. While at the Port Authority, he worked on the acquisition of the site for the World Trade Center.

Ken has also spent a great deal of time authoring, editing and contributing to numerous articles, including "On the Dotted Line: The Anatomy of a Contract," (contributor, Cultural Resources Council, Inc., 1979); "Olympus on Main Street," (contributor, Syracuse University Press, 1978); "Alcoholism - Prognosis for Recovery in the Reconstituted Soviet Republics," (author, 1991) and "Personnel and the Law," (contributing editor, American Bankers Association, 1994).
