PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

As the President and senior partner at HKQ Law, Allan Kluger sets a high bar for all the other attorneys on the firm’s Business Team. Usually the first to arrive at the office and the last to leave, Attorney Kluger’s work ethic and commitment to client service is the benchmark by which all of his colleagues measure their own performance. Attorney Kluger is one of Luzerne County’s longest-practicing lawyers, and has been honored numerous times over the years for his service to the bar, including the President’s Award from the Luzerne County Bar Association.

A graduate of Wyoming Seminary and Amherst College, Attorney Kluger joined HKQ after earning his law degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1952. Today, his practice focuses primarily on business law, wills and estates.

When asked about his tireless work ethic, he jokes, “I flunked the course in sleeping. But seriously, I come in so early because I love what I do and it gives me the opportunity to give the kind of service I want to give to my clients.”

Attorney Kluger was named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer in 2004 and 2005. He is a member of the Luzerne County, Pennsylvania and American Bar Associations, and served on the Pennsylvania State Ethics Commission from 1991 to 1998 by appointment of the Governor. He serves on numerous boards, including King’s College, the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry, and the Luzerne Foundation.

He has been honored with the B'nai B'rith Outstanding Citizen Award, the First Annual Ethics Award given by Ethics Institute of Northeastern Pennsylvania, the Wyoming Seminary Distinguished Service Award, the Anti-Defamation League Distinguished Community Service Award, the Boy Scouts Distinguished Citizen Award, Temple Israel’s Pillar of the Community Award and the Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce Distinguished Citizen Award. He is the recipient, together with his wife, Sue, of the first Lifetime Achievement in Philanthropy Award presented by the Greater Pocono Northeast Chapter of the National Society of Fund Raising Executives.

As Hourigan, Kluger and Quinn addresses the concerns raised by COVID-19, the health and safety of our clients, employees and friends of the firm remain our top priority.


These are very difficult and scary times and we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and symptom free. We recognize that so many of you are understandably anxious about your health, the economic impact of this pandemic and all of the consequences of social isolation.

We also recognize that many of you are anxious about how the coronavirus is impacting the Court systems, our firm and your cases. Although all of our offices are closed, our firm has remained fully operational and we have initiated procedures that allow all of our attorneys and staff to work remotely from their homes. Each of us and our staff will respond to any emails and calls about your cases as quickly as possible.

Our Federal and State Courts have instituted significant changes in their calendars as a result of the coronavirus. Although most courthouses are closed to the public, and Hearings and Trials will be delayed for some time, there are matters that can proceed telephonically and by video. Despite these changes in the Court calendars, we are working diligently on your cases and are determined to do whatever we possibly can to assure an early and just recovery for you and your loved ones. Even under these difficult circumstances, we believe that "Nobody will work harder for you than we will."

With regard to new potential clients, we are not in a position to have an in-person new client meeting, but we will be conducting these initial meetings via phone. New potential clients should call us for a free telephone consultation at (570) 287-3000.
