Proud and honored to join MSKW as Subrogation Managing Partner, Christopher J. Capalbo,  Esq. started the subrogation litigation department. Mr. Capalbo’s passion for civil litigation and recovery and drive for excellence was a perfect match for MSKW’s proven reputation for defending its clients.  


Mr. Capalbo made the journey to San Diego from New Jersey in 1999 and never looked back; though he loves to visit his East coast family and friends as often as possible. He graduated from USD Law School focusing on trial advocacy. He worked for the San Diego District Attorney's office and spent hundreds of hours in the courtroom honing his litigation skills. Later, he was blessed with the opportunity to become a subrogation attorney and was quickly made partner at his first firm. He grew that subrogation department from one to five attorneys and expanded his reach to the entire state. 


Mr. Capalbo is very active in the subrogation legal community. He was editor of Subrogator magazine and is a presenter at National Association of Subrogation Professionals (NASP) events and author of numerous articles on recovery-related issues.  


Outside of work, Mr. Capalbo is a family guy at heart. Wherever his family takes him, he goes.  The beach, volleyball courts, Palm Springs, gymnastics meets or surprise random trips to Juneau, Alaska. He’s down for it all.
