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.
