New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Attorneys with Eight Decades of Experience

Since 1927, three generations of the Shebell family have been representing clients in New Jersey that have been injured.  With over eight decades of experience in workers’ compensation litigation, we offer our clients unrivaled representation.  We are passionate about getting injured workers the compensation they deserve.

New Jersey law requires virtually all employers in the state to insure against employee injury.  If you are injured on the job, blindly trusting your employer and their insurance carrier to compensate you for your injury can be a mistake.  Insurance companies want to protect their own bottom line.  Failing to obtain quality legal representation can have serious financial repercussions and impact your family’s future.

At Shebell & Shebell, we strive to communicate with our clients in plain, simple language so that they understand where their case stands.  The State of New Jersey provides an excellent online resource for explaining the basics of workers’ compensation law.  This page can be accessed at:

Our Services

Our extensive workers’ compensation experience enables us to handle all types of claims. We can help you obtain quality medical treatment, lost wages and monetary benefits if you have suffered from:

  • Traumatic injury: injury resulting from a serious accident with the potential to cause prolonged disability or death.  Examples of traumatic injury include falls, blunt force injuries, car accidents and gunshot wounds.
  • Occupational exposure injury: some jobs, by nature of the work involved, expose workers to environmental contaminants and excess pollution.  Common examples of this type of injury include allergic reactions, asthma, lung disease, mesothelioma and other types of cancer.
  • Occupational stress: when workers are confronted with conditions that they are not equipped to handle, either physically or emotionally, they may suffer injury.  Occupational stress injuries may be physical or psychological.
  • Total disability: some injuries are so severe that they render an individual unable to continue working at their current job, or possibly any other job.  Common examples of this type of injury include herniated disc, spinal fracture, paralysis, traumatic brain injury, severe burns, amputation, chronic pain, and heart attack.
  • Repetitive motion injury: injury sustained by regularly repeating the same motion over a prolonged period of time.  Common types of repetitive motion injuries include carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis.

What Are People Saying About Our Attorneys?


Thomas Shebell was an A M A Z I N G attorney for our personal injury case. He made himself available to all our questions and concerns during the whole process. We were very nervous about it all and he set our fears to rest. You instantly believe in him after your first meeting. He was serious yet empathetic, had superb legal knowledge, and great judgement. His staff is also top notch. Words cannot describe how wonderful a lawyer we believe Thomas Shebell to be and would highly recommend him.

My hero, my attorney who is always there for me!

Tom Shebell has represented me and my family members in several cases. Tom is the most prepared lawyer I have ever seen, and demands respect in and outside of the court room. His staff is amazing and never makes you feel as if you are bothering them. I always feel that I am his most important client, and he always takes my call. If he is busy, I am reassured that he will get right back to me and he does. His knowledge of the law and research on your case is impecable, and will never give up until he gets the results that he feels are the best for you. Although he is the most professional attorney I have ever worked with, he refers you call him Tom (not Mr. Shebell), and I am most comfortable calling him Tommy. His cell phone is on his answering service, to comfort you and assuring you that you can reach him if necessary, no matter what. I will never retain another lawyer, unless it is a case that he cannot handle. That has never happened to me. Unfortunately, Tommy is handling a very emotional case for my family, and whenever we discuss it our meet together he is very comforting to us. For a family man, and extremely busy attorney to handle matters like this, it truly takes a special type of person, and extraordiinary human being. If anyone take my advise, Tom Shebell, III is the only attorney that should be called first, and believe me you will not make another call. As I said in my title, he is my true "hero"!

I am Grateful I was able to have Thomas Shebell for my Lawyer

Thomas Shebell and his staff were very good to work with. They were always professional, but also very down to earth and real. I always felt that my best interest was their main concern. I was always able to call with questions and concerns and was never made to wait or to feel like I was inconveniencing anyone. I always felt that they knew instantly who I was and what was going on with my case. In the end, Thomas was able to get the best possible settlement for me. I am very grateful to have been treated like my case truly mattered to them.

Ferocious Fighter

Tom Shebell and his firm came highly recommended by several reputable people in the community. I come from a family deeply rooted in law enforcement, so I greatly appreciate that Tom grew up with the law as well, hailing from a family of highly respected attorneys. He easily grasped the complexity of my case and eased my concerns, while ferociously fighting for me. One of the moments that stands out to me the most was when I voiced a concern over possible retaliation and he said, "they're going to have come through me first." I wholeheartedly believed him then and now. There is no one else I'd want in my corner than Tom Shebell.

A League Of His Own

Mere words cannot express my gratitude to Thomas F Shebell III. He took on a case, that other attorneys would shy away from and fought vehemently for my husband, myself and our daughter. His tenacity is only surpassed by his kindness and compassion for his clients well-being. I would recommend Mr. Shebell III to anyone who may need an attorney to guide them through a difficult time and see them through to a successful end. Many thanks again to him and his staff!!
