Peter was raised on a farm located 60 miles north of Minneapolis, Minnesota. While working several jobs to pay for his education, he graduated cum laude and with honors from the University of Minnesota in 1987 and graduated cum laude from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1990.

Furthering his study of the estate, gift, and generation-skipping taxes, Peter earned an LL.M. in Taxation from the top-ranked NYU tax program. An LL.M. is an intensive one-year program focusing on a single area of the law that is in addition to the typical three-year J.D. program.

Following a family tradition of military service, Peter served as a Lieutenant in the United States Navy JAG Corp. In 1992, the Navy awarded his team of attorneys a Meritorious Unit Commendation for providing estate planning services to more than 10,000 service members deployed to the Middle East during Desert Storm/Desert Shield.

After leaving the Navy, Peter focused his practice in the area of estates and trusts. By concentrating his practice exclusively on estates, Peter can provide his clients with an understanding of the subtleties, including most recent changes in the gift, estate, inheritance, and generation-skipping taxes.

Since founding his firm in 1998, Peter’s estate planning practice has flourished, and he now represents clients throughout the country.

Peter was excellent. He explained everything very clearly and is super friendly. My wife and I originally tried using a lawyer through group legal coverage, but unfortunately the old adage - "you get what you pay for" - applied to the other lawyer, and we decided to go with a real professional.

I saw four lawyers and was told by all of them; I should just forget contesting my mother's will. I knew what happened, but it is very hard to prove undue influence. I contacted the Law Offices of Peter L. Klenk & Associates. Attorney Amanda DiChello took my case. They were very honest and upfront about what would be involved trying to prove what I knew was true. Attorney DiChello may be young but she is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. She listened and understood what I conveyed to her. She knew exactly what information to use and crafted an outstanding interrogatory and many powerful depositions. Attorney DiChello understood the various emotional feelings this case created for my family and me; she was always there for us with a kind and encouraging word. We went to trial. The amount of work which she and her Paralegal did for the trial was incredible. They both knew my case inside and out! Attorney DiChello's powerful interrogative and thinking skills produced a positive outcome. Attorney DiChello did what other seasoned lawyers said was impossible!
