Sam Calig was raised and educated in Zanesville, Ohio. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts Degree from the Ohio State University, he served 2 ½ years in the United States Peace Corps in South America. Returning to Ohio, Sam earned his Juris Doctor from the Ohio Northern University Law School in 1974.
In 1977, Sam co-founded the law firm, Calig & Handelman. For over 35 years Sam used his extensive legal knowledge and passion for helping others to grow this firm and serve the community. Sam was a pioneer in providing legal services to all those in need, regardless of income or status. Although Sam was an Attorney in practice, he will be remembered for so much more than that.
Sadly, Sam passed away in August of 2014 at the age of 68. Throughout his life, Sam touched every person with whom he came in contact. He was patient, polite, engaging, and insightful. Sam was known as a pillar of the legal community who mentored and befriended attorneys throughout the state. His leadership was valued and his strong mind and character will be missed.
It is our goal at The Calig Law Firm to carry on Sam’s commitment to character, knowledge and kindness. His legacy will forever influence the attention and respect we give to our clients and colleagues.
