Discovery with Samuel L. Closic

Catching up with Samuel C-L-O-S-I-C Closic!

Published in 2018 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers magazine

By Samuel L. Closic on May 18, 2018


The lawyer I most admire is … Benjamin Franklin. He was a true Renaissance man and an entrepreneurial lawyer.

The quality I most like in a lawyer is … passion with poise.

My pre-trial routine is … to review all the deposition and hearing transcripts, case rulings and joint trial exhibits—over and over again.

On my best day I … shoot an 85 on the golf course.

I get angry when … my drive goes 235 yards but slices into the water.

On weekends I … watch the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles.

My hero is … my sister, Basha Silverman, CEO of Jewish Family Services of Delaware. 

When I started, I wish I knew … better when to stand firm and when to give a little.

My career high point (so far) has been … my colleague’s compliment that I blew him away while taking a recent deposition.

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … running my family’s old furniture store, Closic’s Baby & Teen.

When I win a case, I celebrate by … taking my team out for a night on the town.

The last TV show I binge-watched was … Stranger Things. It’s like a cheesy ’80s movie done well.

The best meal I ever had was … a chef’s tasting at Coquette in New Orleans—homemade Lucky Charms with giant marshmallows and all.

I am inspired by … my fabulous wife, Sara Closic.
