Thomas Calcagni

First Assistant Attorney General


Thomas Calcagni, of Chatham, most recently served as Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs for Governor Chris Christie. Prior to 2010, Calcagni served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Special Prosecutions Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey.

Calcagni received his undergraduate degree in 1994 from Bowdoin College and his law degree in 1997 from Seton Hall University School of Law in Newark.

“As Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs, Thomas Calcagni significantly raised the profile of the Division by taking an aggressive approach to protecting consumers through many new proactive initiatives,” said Attorney General Chiesa. “During his nine years in the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Tom rose by his expertise and skills to be assigned to try high-profile corruption cases in the Special Prosecutions Division. His talent and experience make him an ideal selection for First Assistant.”

While at Consumer Affairs, Calcagni initiated a campaign of sting and undercover operations targeting noncompliant and predatory businesses; enhanced the Division's consumer education campaign and the effectiveness of its Consumer Service Center; directed its launch of the New Jersey Prescription Monitoring Program; and implemented its ban of toxic "bath salts" and synthetic marijuana designer drugs.
