He received his Juris Doctorate from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan where he graduated in the top five percent of his class and was a member of the Law Review and Trial Team.

Following his time in the Navy, he spent two years with the Office of General Counsel for the Department of the Navy practicing employment law.

From 1999 until joining the Law Offices of Peter Klenk in 2012, he was engaged in a practice of intense general litigation with the firm of Margolis Edelstein in Philadelphia.

Further, Glen has presented numerous appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and Pennsylvania appellate courts including twice arguing before the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania resulting in numerous published decisions.

What Our clients are saying

Kevin K.

I was referred to Peter after my divorce to put documents together to protect my assets. He suggested a number of documents that would help protect my children and their future. Also, he put together wills, power of attorney and living wills. I initially spoke with him on the phone, he took 30-40 minutes to understand my situation and explain the benefits of having such documents. After a week or two, I met with him in his office and signed the documents. Everything else was remote phone calls and emails. He re-explained these documents and what whom to share. I am in good hands.

I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link for a question regarding a will. While I was expecting only a few minutes, it was a lengthy conversation. He made sure he understood the situation by asking many questions before offering advice. He then went through my options and results of each one. He left it up to me to decide if I wanted to proceed and did not push me toward one or another. His website has very useful information which I definitely researched before I called him. While I decided not to proceed at this time, I feel I had enough information to make that decision. I would not hesitate to hire him should I need to in the future.

When it came down to picking the right attorney to handle my affairs, I knew right away it was this firm. From speaking to their secretary to speaking to Peter I knew I was making the right decision. After only a few mins Peter knew right away what I was looking for and handled all my questions professionally and even gave me great feedback that put my mind at ease. All that without even giving a single penny! So of course I hired him! So far so good...
