Steve began his career as a criminal trial lawyer in New York City working as a Public Defender. He was later appointed by the New York attorney general to serve as a Special Assistant Attorney General in investigating and prosecuting corruption in the nursing home industry. During its most scandalous heyday, he served as lead prosecutor in some of the most significant nursing home financial fraud cases in New York City. In the mid-80s he wanted a change of environment and came to Central Florida to serve as a federal prosecutor in Orlando. Here he prosecuted a wide variety of high-profile and complex cases and secured convictions against major defense contractors, corrupt public officials, and notorious figures. Handling some of the most high-profile and complex cases early in his career put him in an even stronger position to handle major cases when he entered private practice.

After leaving the U.S. attorney's office Steve went into private practice with a leading civil firm in Central Florida, handling a wide and diverse variety of cases all over Florida and throughout the United States. He was successful with everything from turning a five-thousand-dollar workman's comp wrongful death claim into a two-million-dollar settlement arising from an industrial catastrophe in North Carolina. Such wins had him handling matters for a wide variety of corporate and business clients regarding a variety of special and complicated matters. After a few years Steve decided to start out on his own and and established his own private practice. He realized great success both in Orlando and in Massachusetts, where he also had opened a practice. He commuted back and forth from New England to the South on a regular basis, handling cases from one end of the country to the other.

Steve litigated a number of Indian gaming cases in Florida, Delaware, and California and was successful in achieving remarkable results for his clients in these very political, complex, and challenging cases. Steve Calvacca’s largest settlement that was collected, was in excess of 130 million dollars. He has obtained tremendous results for a multitude of other clients as well. He has litigated whistleblower cases such as one he currently has pending against a major pharmaceutical company which is seeking damages in excess of several hundred million dollars.

Stephen Calvacca is admitted to practice in New York, Massachusetts, and Florida and has argued cases before numerous federal courts of appeal. He has appeared before the United States Supreme Court, a skill and experience limited to some of the best civil attorneys in the country. As an immensely experience civil trial attorney and litigator, Steve is selective in those complex cases he chooses to handle. His knowledge, expertise, and success requires him to focus on but a few select cases that require tremendous time, effort, and special skills.

Steve looks forward to serving your needs in complex civil, commercial, and corporate matters. If you have a large and complex civil litigation case where substantial monetary losses occur, Steve will evaluate your case and if the facts and circumstances allow, handle your matter on a contingency. He will only get paid if he is successful on your behalf. The greater the complexity and the damages, the more Steve is inspired to handle your case.
