Elijah Simkins

Associate Attorney

Elijah Simkins was born and raised in Dearborn Michigan. Elijah received his bachelor’s degree in 2016 from Eastern Michigan University where he was a D1 track and field athlete and graduated Cum Laude. He then went on to Wayne State University Law School where he received his Juris Doctor in 2019. 

 

He spent his legal education focusing on corporate, mergers and acquisitions, business planning and real estate law. While in law school, Elijah served as the president of Wayne State’s Sports and Entertainment Law Society for two years. Shortly after graduating law school, he designed and built his own cannabis business website outlining the paths to starting a business entity in Michigan as well as walking through the Michigan marijuana licensing process.

 

On top of Elijah’s legal expertise, he has obtained his Michigan real estate license which allows him to help his clients find the perfect property for their proposed business. Elijah comes from a big family that has ingrained a blue collar work ethic into his life, so you can be confident that he not only possesses the skill set to best represent you and your business, but also the work ethic to get the job done right. As a former touring musician that was signed to a Boston record label, Elijah loves to play the drums with all sorts of musicians whenever he can get the chance.
