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.
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 unusal 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 alot 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 wil be solved. Thanks for a great job well done.
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.
Tom is an excellent attorney. He gets his job . He fights very hard for his clients. He fought for my husband for 7yrs and he did a great job. I would like to say thank you for all his great work. I will recommend him to anyone. Thank you again Tom.
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 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"!
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 reccommend Tom to anybody that might have a Medical Malpractice or Personal Injury case.
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.
