Kluger has earned a reputation as one of the region’s most capable banking and finance lawyers. For the past 13 years, he has been awarded the Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent peer-review rating, which signifies that his peers rank him at the highest level of ethical standards and professional ability.

In addition, Kluger has been named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer, as designated by Super Lawyers Magazine.
He has lectured extensively on banking and finance matters, and has served as an adjunct professor for the American Institute of Banking. An instructor at numerous seminars, Kluger has served as a moderator, drafter and presenter of a seminar for lawyers, lenders and accountants on all aspects of commercial lending and the negotiation of lending documentation; served as a moderator and mock jury presenter for lawyers and bankers on all aspects of a trial in bankruptcy matters; lectured on forbearance agreements and their necessity in workout situations; and lectured on the collection of debts and enforcement of judgments.
The Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings, which are based on reviews by other attorneys across the country, help buyers of legal services identify, evaluate and select the most appropriate lawyer for a specific task at hand. The ratings reflect a combination of achieving a very high general ethical standards rating and a legal ability numerical rating. The general ethical standards rating denotes adherence to professional standards of conduct and ethics, reliability, diligence and other criteria relevant to the discharge of professional responsibilities. Legal ability ratings are based on performance in five key areas - legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability and legal experience.
