Testimonials From Clients Of Shebell & Shebell, LLC
"My husband suffered a devastating accident on the job. He is left with limited use of his dominant hand and shoulder and can never return to his 35 year career. After hiring a law firm for this liability case we were dropped after 18 months because in their opinion we didn't have a strong enough case. We received a recommendation from a friend to go see Tom Shebell. After reviewing our case, they took us on immediately and started the process that day! They helped us get through this very stressful time in our lives. We cannot say enough about this law firm but wanted to express to anyone in need of legal representation to reach out to them. We're confident you will receive the best legal counsel in the area."

“Thank you so much for all your hard work. I have so much gratitude for Raymond Shebell and staff, I'm just overwhelmed at the moment. God bless you all.”
“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.”
“I retained Shebell & Shebell for my electrocution accident back in 2008 that sent me to Deborah hospital for nearly a month with a pulmonary embolism, heart attack, and circulatory problems in both my legs. I still get blood clots in my legs which send me back in the hospital. I live on blood thinners which are very hard to manage. Ray Shebell has been right on top of what I'm entitled to by law and has helped me a great deal in getting me what I deserve from workers compensation. Thanks Ray Shebell!”

“Thomas Shebell and his team helped me out during a very hard time in my life. I have never had an event in my life prior to this that would required a lawyer. But after just one meeting I knew I was in good hands. He and his team went above and beyond for me and included me in the process and explained every step in terms I could understand. He made a hard life changing event a bit easier to handle and to overcome. When we finally reached the end Thomas and his team became a supportive family to me and made a very emotional experience in my life easier to accept and move forward. Thank you Shebell and Shebell for being there for me and keeping the doors open.”
“I could not have been more pleased with the result of my case, but especially the professionalism in which it was handled. Tom F. Shebell was extremely kind and sensitive to every detail of my situation, and his entire staff was completely understanding of my needs. If you ever need a Personal Injury Attorney I would be more than pleased to recommend this firm.”
“Tommy Shebell (and I'll call him that familiarly) has to be the most prepared, efficient, honest and down to earth lawyer I've ever had the pleasure to deal with. If you are lucky enough to get him to take a case for you, you are in the finest legal hands in N.J.”
“Thomas has been nothing short of perfection. He has lead me with the best advice, he is always available and has recommended the best doctors. I would gladly recommend him to anyone that could use his services. He not only does his job amazingly but he never leaves you in the dark.”
“When I consulted Mark on an issue I had with NJClass, he was extremely knowledgable and gave me multiple options on how I could proceed.”
“Mark is one of the finest young lawyers in our county. His standards are of the highest level. I recommend him for anyone needing his services.”
“Mr. Shebell helped to blunt the discomfort of being swept off a motorcycle by an indifferent young woman; helped to navigate the troubled waters of insurance-dependent medical care and claims, rehabilitation and anxiety; and, most critically, provided ample and reassuring advice and counsel when it came to dealing with GEICO’s maneuvers, manipulations and posturing (including the hiring of a non-NJ-licensed private investigator as a means to disrupt properly established data). He was always professional, patient and accommodating. Effectively, he was able to render an intolerable circumstance much less so, and along the way earned much merited respect and admiration. Thank you.”
“Mark helped me out with a speeding ticket I received a year or two ago. He is a very down to earth guy and a great lawyer. I would highly recommend Mark for anything you'd need legally. He cares about his clients and makes sure he gives you outstanding legal counsel.”
“Mark helped me out with a civil issue. He was thoughtful, knowledgable and very responsive. I highly recommend him - an excellent advocate.”
“In 2009 I was involved in a car accident that flipped my world upside down. I was 20 years old suffering from constant back pain and struggling with the emotional rollercoaster that followed. I was young and unsure about where to go for representation until a family member referred me to Tom. I am lucky I took their advice. Tom kept me informed about everything that was going on in a timely fashion and included me in every decision making process. Tom is a compassionate, knowledgeable, respectful and professional attorney. He treated me like a human being instead of a paycheck and sincerely cared about how I was doing. He was available to me off hours and responded to my every call, email, and even text within minutes. Tom has represented me in a personal injury and a medical malpractice case and in both situations he made me feel as if I was his most important client. Tom also has a wonderful team working for him. Everyone is personable and understanding. Every interaction with his staff was a pleasant one and I never felt like I was a bother to them. I highly recommend Tom!!”
“When six other lawyers refused to take my case for a botched ear surgery that left me deaf claiming malpractices cases are too difficult and take too much time, Tom Shebell took me as a client. Once he took my case, Tom spent endless hours learning all the medical and biological aspects about the ear. Tom ended up knowing more about the ear than I did after teaching biology for 20+ years. During the entire case, Tom kept me personally informed about the process. He always responded to any questions I had. Tom always returned calls within 1 day which is very unusual for most lawyers. Tom developed a solid case backed up by a large amount of researched evidence which was used wisely during depositions. Malpractice suits involving doctors are very difficult to process and win, yet tom was able to gain a large settlement for me. I would highly recommend Tom for anyone who needs a top-notch lawyer who does his homework and is highly skilled in his profession.”
“Tom is kind, smart, caring and important person. Tom and His team have a lot of patients, great to work with. Don't be afraid to express your concerns, by the way he is a strong hearted person. The best thing to do is be honest, your case will be solved. Thanks for a great job well done.”
“After some unfortunate events, I had the very fortunate experience meeting Mark Apostolou Jr. In my moment of greatest legal need Mark was there for me every step of the way. He did everything within his power, beyond my wildest expectations to clear my record of some very serious, possibly life altering charges. Never having required a lawyer or facing charges of the magnitude I faced; I placed my very livelihood in Mark’s very able hands. When it came to gathering evidence, finding statutes that benefitted me, or bringing in the right experts at the right time; Mark was on point. My case dragged on for almost a year and not once did I feel like Mark was not right by my side fighting for me. He made himself available on a consistent and constant basis either by phone or by email, and was always quick to respond and put my fears at ease. His knowledge of the law, background as a prosecutor, and ultimately his passion for his clients makes him the ideal attorney. No matter what I requested, be it a menial question or to prepare paperwork for me, it was done almost immediately. I would emphatically recommend Mark Apostolou Jr to anyone who requires legal assistance.”
“Tom is an excellent attorney. He gets his job. He fights very hard for his clients. He fought for my husband for 7 yrs and he did a great job. I would like to say thank you for all his great work. I will recommend him to anyone.”
“We could not have been more pleased with not only the result of our case but especially the professional manner in which it was handled. Mr. Shebell was extremely sensitive with every detail and his entire staff was completely accommodating. We would be more than pleased to recommend this firm.”
“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 impeccable, 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 extraordinary 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’!”
“Tom represented me in a medical malpractice case. He could not have done anymore than he did for me and my case, because he covered every aspect with incredible detail. If I ever needed to get in touch with him, I had his cell phone and he always answered the phone. I have seen other lawyers handle themselves in court, but no attorney like Tom. At the end of the trial the attorney from the other side even complimented Tom and I could tell how impressed he was with him. I would and do highly recommend Tom to anybody that might have a Medical Malpractice or Personal Injury case.”
“From start to finish, the law firm of Shebell & Shebell exceeded our expectations. The consistency in response was one which we’ll never forget. We highly recommend this firm to all who expect honesty, integrity, and loyalty.”
– Joe and Lucy
“Mr. Shebell is more than just a successful, excellent attorney; he is compassionate, sincere and truly cares about his clients and above all, he is ethical. He is extremely knowledgeable and has a certain level of expertise and perseverance that is rare to find. As my attorney, he treated me, my ideas and my concerns with respect and kindness. Mr. Shebell's staff share his professionalism.”
“Mr. Shebell is our hero, plain and simple. Working against the odds, Mr. Shebell was able to highlight the differences in our case vs existing case law and bring our case to a just conclusion. We see Mr. Shebell as someone who stands up against the bullies and uses his expert knowledge of law and his experience to develop the right approach to get a positive outcome. Our case involved multiple injuries from negligence on the part of a 3rd party, requiring three expensive and painful surgeries, with a fourth one on the way, and although the scars and pain from those injuries will never go away, Mr. Shebell was able to obtain proper justice, which helps alleviate some of the suffering and cost. He stepped in where many attorneys may not have, and fought like a warrior to protect us. We will be forever grateful to Mr. Shebell because of the work he did in this case.”
“Mr Shebell ( who likes to be called Tom ) was very understanding and helpful to all my needs . He was never more the a phone call away with any question I may have had and I have to say the same about the staff that work with him (not for him so to speak).”
“Thank you so much for all your hard work. I have so much gratitude for Raymond Shebell and staff, I'm just overwhelmed at the moment. God bless you all.”
