Glen grew up in the suburbs of Kansas City, Kansas, but left the Midwest to go to college at the University of Tennessee. There, he received his Bachelor of Arts in Business Finance with honors. 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. He became a member of the Missouri Bar in 1991, the Pennsylvania Bar in 1995, and the New Jersey Bar in 2013.
Glen served as a lieutenant in the Judge Advocate General’s Corp of the U.S. Navy from 1991 to 1995. During his four years of military service, his time was split between defending and prosecuting sailors and marines before courts-martial. 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. In this position, he handled trial matters before courts in more than a dozen Pennsylvania counties as well as the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and U.S. Bankruptcy Court. 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.
In 1999, Glen earned a graduate degree of Masters-in-Divinity with first honors from Westminster Theological Seminary in Glenside, PA. He currently lives in Jenkintown, PA, with his wife, three children and dog.
Peter is a model attorney who puts his clients first at all costs. His extensive expertise in estate planning and tax planning was a great comfort as we began, and have expanded, our family. He is very thoughtful, generous, and quick witted. His approach towards his business has been an inspiration to his peer group, and his zest for life is extremely infectious. Without reservation, I highly recommend Peter as trusted and cherished counsel
Peter came highly recommended by a close friend to do our estate planning. We have been putting off for years. He is knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with.
Like another reviewer, I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link, for a question regarding PA inheritance taxes. The question was quite technical and difficult to explain, and the answer was nowhere to be found on the web. Peter grasped precisely what I was asking, and provided a clear, helpful response (with a touch of humor) the very next day.
Peter and his associates made things easy for us.
Very knowledgeable! Peter Klenk always has a thorough answer, and the associates have more experience than you'll find at most firms. They really only do estate work.
