I grew up in Monmouth County hearing stories about the law from my father who is a retired Municipal Court Judge.  Growing up I was always around attorneys, and even remember on weekends as a kid sitting on the beach next to my dad listening to him answering calls about setting bail.  Now, I continue to live in Monmouth County with my wife and my two sons.  Although my dad was a Judge for the majority of my childhood, my family’s background was actually in the business industry here in Monmouth County.  My great-grandfather emigrated from Greece and came to the United States through Ellis Island.  He settled in Asbury Park where he worked as a barber, when Asbury Park was one of the premier resort destinations on the East Coast in the 1920s.  My grandparents worked in the restaurant industry, and went on to own local franchises of Perkins restaurants, where I spent many hours as a kid.  I remember seeing how hard they had to work to make a better life for me and for the rest of our family.  My grandfather didn’t have higher than an elementary school education, but became a very successful businessman.  I learned at a young age, that not all learning comes from books, and that common sense and real life experience are just as important as what you learn in school.    

 

After graduating from law school I clerked for a Superior Court Judge, the Honorable Ira Kreizman (retired), in the Monmouth County Criminal Division.  Judge Kreizman, another Monmouth County native, taught me valuable lessons about even the most serious Criminal Offenses, and the intricacies of the Criminal Code here in New Jersey and our Country as a whole.  I enjoyed that experience and enjoyed learning about the Criminal Laws of New Jersey.  At the end of my clerkship I wanted to continue to work in the field of Criminal Law, and became an Assistant Prosecutor in Monmouth County, where I worked for nearly five years.  As an Assistant Prosecutor I worked on cases ranging from petty disorderly person offenses to homicide.  

 

Now, in addition to representing people who have been injured by someone else's negligence, I work for people who have been charged with Criminal, DWI or Disorderly Person Offenses. I do my best to try to get to know each client, and to use everything at our disposal to reach the best possible outcome in a case. I understand that each person that I represent is a unique individual, with his or her own set of life experiences and circumstances that have unfortunately resulted in him or her needing an attorney.  Whether someone is injured by another's negligence, or someone is wrongfully accused of a crime, or has been charged with something far more serious than what they have done, I use my years of experience and relationships throughout the County to achieve the best result I can for each person.

One who is there for you!!!
Seven years ago my life changed in an instant. I was physically assaulted which left me with issues that I will battle for the rest of my life. This brought me to the offices of Shebell & Shebell where I would encounter two of the most trustworthy men I have ever met in my life. One of them was Mr. Apostolou who gave me his word that he would battle till the end for me. (After the situation in which I was hurt I found it extremely hard to trust anyone) With Mr. Apostolou he showed it is okay to trust again as for the last seven years he was there with an open ear for any issue I may have had, and helped anyway that he could. Recently I went through my first experience with the judicial system, and who was there, Mr. Apostolou. He again gave my case everything he had. Though he was always on my side he also did not sugar coat a single aspect as he allowed me to understand all and any issue that may arise throughout the process. During this time my family had become part of the process and were very nervous and psychologically drained. Mr. Apostolou at that time nurtured and answered any questions they may have had. Along with all of the beautiful attributes that I have previously spoken about Mark also was victorious in the eyes of the jury as we won our case! Words can not describe the impact this man has made on my life and the outlook he has given me. I would like to thank him as well as advise anyone who is looking for representation from someone who truly cares for you to look no further then the law firm of Shebell & Shebell. Mr. Mark Apostolou and Mr. Tom Shebell are true class acts and will be there for you all the way through. Again thank you to the Shebell & Shebell firm for the amazing treatment you provide my self and my family. You are truly amazing people. Mr. Apostolou again thank you for everything!

Unemployment denial
After being mistreated by an old employer and losing a job with zero explaination, Mark stepped in and very professionally we fought for all my unemployment benefits that were being withheld. We had several interviews with the state and without Mark Apostolou's representation I would have been facing an uphill battle. With his help I had confidence and after a successful appeal I was awarded the benefits that I feel I should have received long ago.

Mark Apostolou- Great Lawyer!
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.

Above and Beyond
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.
