As the Senior Principal at Hourigan, Kluger, & Quinn, Allan Kluger sets a high bar for all the other attorneys in the firm. Usually the first to arrive at the office and the last to leave, Attorney Kluger’s work ethic and commitment to client service have been 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 for his service, including the President’s Award from the Luzerne County Bar Association.
A Wyoming Seminary Preparatory School and Amherst College graduate, Attorney Kluger started practicing after earning his law degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1952. His practice focused primarily on business law, transactional work, real estate, 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 has been named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer and has for many years been named by Martindale-Hubble as an AV Preeminent, evidencing the highest level of professional excellence. He served on the Pennsylvania State Ethics Commission from 1991 to 1998 by appointment of the Governor of Pennsylvania, and he has served on numerous boards throughout the region.
He has been honored with the B’nai B’rith Outstanding Citizen Award and was the first recipient of the Ethics Award given by the Ethics Institute of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Allan has also received other awards, including 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, and he was 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 Fundraising Executives. Attorney Kluger was also recently chosen as the first recipient of the Friedman Jewish Community Center award.
