He was a leading personal injury lawyer in the tri-state area, having won numerous multi-million-dollar awards. Mr. Calcagno put his blood, sweat and tears into every case, representing each and every client with professionalism, enthusiasm, and zeal.

Mr. Calcagno also dedicated countless hours of his time pro bono for the victims of 9/11. As a result of his devotion to the victims of 9/11, Mr. Calcagno is listed as a “hero” in a book published by Trial Lawyers Care (“TLC”).

Over the past 25 years, Andrew won numerous verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients. Many of his cases attracted media attention in The New York Times, New York Daily News, New York Law Journal, Staten Island Advance, The Star Ledger, The Bergen Record, New Jersey Law Journal, New Jersey Verdict Search, and National Verdict Search, as well as broadcast segments on Channel 4 NBC news, Channel 12 news, CN8 news, and 101.5 FM radio.

Mr. Calcagno had been named to Thomson Reuters New Jersey Super Lawyers list in the area of personal injury for five consecutive years. He published a number of articles on the law for the American Trial Lawyers Associates.

A resident of Westfield, N.J., for over 20 years, Andrew, 54, was the cherished husband of beloved wife Regina (nee Bagli) of 23 years and devoted father of Nicholas, Laura Jean and James.
