About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

Mr. Calabrese has stated, "I believe that the overwhelming amount of information on the internet can be confusing for those suffering from mesothelioma and I therefore believe that it is important to have a lawyer that will visit a client in their home and discuss each and every detail of this type of case and their particular circumstances. I do this before, during or after work or on weekends, at the convenience of the client."

Since 2006 Mr. Calabrese has represented clients with mesothelioma and had guided their families through the legal process of recovering damages for the injuries they have suffered.

Mr. Calabrese, of Brighton, NY, is a 1989 graduate of Syracuse University, having received his B.S. degree in Accounting, his M.B.A. ('92) with a concentration in Accounting and his J.D. ('92).

Mr. Calabrese is admitted to practice law in the states of New York and Colorado. He is admitted to the U.S. District Court and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of New York and the Northern District of New York.

Excellent Lawyer
I've been in business for 30 years and have had numerous lawyers. Chris is clearly TOP NOTCH! He is incredibly smart, has the utmost integrity, and is very responsive. Most importantly though, is that he will ALWAYS have your back.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Calabrese is a conscientious hard working attorney who stands behind his clients and achieves novel and creative legal solutions. He puts me at ease when discussing any legal matter with him and he is prompt in returning any inquiries. He has a wide range of legal knowledge which enables him to provide broader insights in solving any particular legal challenge. He also employs excellent knowledgeable staff, including his paralegal and nurse consultant. The support staff remain informed on every detail of the cases he handles which is especially helpful when Mr. Calabrese is unavailable during Court appointments or attending client meetings. I would give Mr. Calabrese high ratings on his organizational skills and abilities and wish to express the highest of accolades for his professionalism, trustworthiness and legal knowledge. I am glad I met Mr. Calabrese and am particularly grateful for all that he has done in helping me and my family with all of our legal needs.
