Eric C Closs, Esq.
Deputy Chief
Public Defender
Office Phone:
(570) 517-3042
701 Main Street, Suite 301, Stroudsburg PA 18360

Attorney Closs is a strong believer in defending the Constitution, due process of law, and the presumption of innocence for all those accused of crimes, regardless of that person’s financial circumstances. This belief is what initially led him to be a lawyer and a public defender. After some years with the Monroe County Public Defender’s office, he was promoted to Deputy Chief. 

Attorney Closs lives with his family here in Monroe County. He began his legal practice in Monroe County by clerking for President Judge Margherita Patti-Worthington and moved on to criminal defense.
