CALCAGNO, ANDREW JOHN, 54, of Westfield.

It is with great sadness that the family of Andrew John Calcagno, Attorney at Law announce his sudden passing on Monday, May 20, 2019.

He was a leading personal injury lawyer in the tri-state area, having won numerous multi-million-dollar awards. 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”)

He was the son of John and the late Marie (nee Divito, 2006) and brother of Donna Aiello, Andrea Contessa, and the late Lawrence (2017). His extended family includes 20 brother and sister in-laws and 29 nieces and nephews. He was a respected boss and a friend to countless many. Family and traditions were most precious to Andrew as he opened his life and home with the utmost of generosity and charm.

Mr. Calcagno was admitted to practice law in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia.

In 1997, Andrew formed Calcagno & Associates, a leading personal injury trial law firm with offices in New Jersey and New York. 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 has been named to Thomson Reuters New Jersey Super Lawyers list in the area of Personal Injury for five (5) consecutive years. He published a number of articles on the law for the American Trial Lawyers Associates

Andrews and I were in the same graduating class of 1983 at St. Peter's Boys High School.
I was very upset to hear of his passing when I read about it today in a alumni magazine.
We weren't close but would see each in the hall ways of school and on the buses to and from school.
A fellow classmate and part of my history so to speak.
So sorry for your loss.
And very proud to see that he made a incredible difference in the World through his work.

Working and knowing Andrew for the short time that I did , I knew immediately he was someone you meet once in your lifetime. On Father’s Day, while awaking I thought of Andrew, his kids and his loving wife and was immediately saddened to know how hard that day would be for them. As hard as Andrew worked and played he belonged down the shore on his boat surrounded by his kids enjoying life. My point being even though I am an ex employee and not family I thought of Andrew that day and how unfair life can be. I guess god needed someone like him to help from heaven and knew Andrew had done such a great job on earth already that he took a good guy way too early. I take away lfrom his loss to live every day as ur last and to make family everything , also Andrew was a kind’s easier to smile and say something nice than to exert mean.
Just needed to tell my story much love and strength to all who loved him
You are very lucky to have had such a man in your life...draw from his crazy humor strength and wisdom

To Regina, Nick, Laura Jean, and James. We have been away and have only just learned, today, the heartbreaking news about Andrew's passing. We are so very saddened, and have very fond memories of so many early mornings and long days with Westfield Crew, when Nick and Hal were teammates together. Andrew was always there, setting things up, helping things run smoothly, cheering the boys on, cheerful and positive, as were you Regina. He was a vibrant force on those long days and that is how we will always remember him. We are truly shocked and heartbroken for you all, and send our deepest regards and condolences. Dee & Roger Barnes.

Jo-Ann & James

We just found out about Andrews passing and were left speechless and quite upset.
Andrew represented me in a car accident case several years ago and took me in as one of his own.
He also represented James in a slip and fall case.
He was always upbeat and positive and any chance he got he sprinkled in the love for his family ( even during depositions :).
My heart felt condolences to his wife, children, family and staff.
I will miss your 4am responses to texts and impromptu calls.
