At Klenk Law, we believe that strong and community-driven leadership can yield a brighter and more just future. We have served our many communities for years and have seen that a community is improved by active, educated citizens. We want to help a student with a similar passion to achieve his or her educational goals. Thus was born the Klenk Law Community Leadership Scholarship.
With that in mind, our law firm is offering a $1000 scholarship to help a student who exemplifies strong community leadership. Their community is not limited to just their hometown or where they live; it can be their town, their school, a club, or any other community they help to improve and build up.

Excellent, knowledgeable team handled a complicated issue with superb results.
Peter and his associates made things easy for us.
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.
Great firm. Great people. Happy to refer folks in need to estate planning to Peter and his team. They do great work.
