Great attorney!
My case felt awful and I wasn't sure what to do. Jesse took over and it was like a weight was lifted. All I had to do was go to the appointments he got me and get the treatment I needed. I rarely needed to contact him and he consistently stayed on top of things. I would reccomend him to anyone as a diligent and trustworthy attorney.

Competent and Communicative Lawyer
I retained Jesse on my worker’s compensation case. He was very communicative. Any time I called or emailed I got a response extremely quickly. He stays in his lane. He dedicates his practice to strictly Workers Comp. Workers Comp law Is so much different that common legal matters. Jesse can be trusted to do every single thing in his power to have a successful outcome. My outcome was fair and reasonable. I’d hire Jesse again!

The best workers compensation lawyer around...
Jesse was a outstanding lawyer that everytime I contacted him regarding my case he would reply like clockwork usually in under 30 minutes. He cares for and takes outstanding care of his clients. He’s with you from the original consultantation to when you pick up your check. Recommended highly...

Helping me with something that I had never been through.
My first call to Mr. Shapiro was just to ask basic questions and it turned out to be very informative with doctors names that I really needed to pursue for my second opinion. Once my surgery and most of my recovery was done I contacted Mr. Shapiro again and he was extremely helpful in my final process of my injury claim. Thank you for all of your help in this matter.

Excellent
I hired Jesse to get me the medical care I needed from my work injury. As soon as I hired him not only did he have me a doctor willing to do further investigation he had the care I needed and got to the bottom of it right away. He saw straight through the bull that the company’s doctor were putting me through. It was truly a breath of fresh air knowing someone truly cared and took time to understand the pain I was going through. Jesse Thank You sooo much

Worker's compensation claim
The personal as well as professional service I received was above expectation. I highly recommend Mr. Shapiro and his team of paralegals to anyone in need of not only legal guidance, but compassion following injury. The highest rating possible goes to he and his legal team. Abigail Hall

Reasonable, caring and gets results
Mr shapiro took my case , had my back when the insurance company tryed to force me back to work and limit the care I needed. In the end I got the treatment I needed for recovery and the settlement I deserved . Couldn't ask for a better man , lawyer, a lawyer that looks out for the little people and goes toe to toe with the big insurance company's . Allways a call away , even gives his cell number if you need him. One of the best decisions I made was hiring him . Thank you Jesse for giving me my life back .

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Shapiro is an excellent workman's compensation attorney. He was able to obtain Dr.'s appointments for needed care, a second opinion, and diagnostic testing to determine the exact nature of my injury. Mr. Shapiro was honest, timely and answered all of my questions sometimes responding after office hours. Finally, Mr. Shapiro was able to negotiate a fair settlement avoiding having to pursue further action with the Industrial Commission. I am very pleased with Mr. Shapiro's professionalism and the results he was able to achieve for me.

A Heart Filled Thank You
Jesse Shapiro was a God send. After trying to deal with the WC adjuster after my injury, surgery, and therapy, I contacted Jesse for a consultation. I did my research and hired him. He took my case along with the stress off my hands. I needed another surgery which he handled from start to finish. Every call or email was answered quickly. Jesse Shapiro let me focus on getting better while he handled the rest explaining every step with a very positive outcome. Truley a lawyer for the ages. Thank you Jessie for all your hard work.

Lawer with a heart
I didn't know what to expect from a workman's comp lawyer. I truly was not going to use one until my sister insisted. I do not like meeting people that have a rebutation as being a ambulance chaser. Boy was I wrong with Jesse Shapiro. He walked into the meeting and made me feel comfortable the moment I meet him. Right then I knew I made an excellent choice. He was personable and new his stuff about workmans comp. He is right to the point and told me his plan the first day. He also spoke in terms that I knew and not legal jargon. When it came to settling, Jesse was right there and advised me appropiately. I would highly recommend him to others that are suffering with workman's comp. Not ony is he there for you, he is concerned about how you feel as a human being, not a case number.

Impeccable Service!
My husband and I hired attorney Shapiro after my husband suffered an on the job injury with the NC Department of Corrections. After our initial meeting with Mr. Shapiro, we felt confident that we had entrusted our delicate situation in very capable hands. We found that Mr. Shapiro was very knowledgeable about Workers Compensation Law. He was able to evaluate our case, and without making any promises, he gave us what we felt, was an honest assessment of the various possible outcomes of our case. Mr. Sharpiro has provided superb support and service since day one. My husband and I will definitely be referring him to any of our family, friends, or acquaintances who may be in seach of a capable, personable and trustworthy attorney.

Superior service from a caring, sensitive individual.
Mr Shapiro took my case when others wouldn't touch it. He was very sensitive to my needs taking time to listen whenever I needed him. He never acted like I asked stupid questions. Even after my case was setteled, he continues to remember me as a person, not a case number. I would recommend him to anyone. Well prepared, knowelegable, more than capable. Thank you for all you did.

An Amazing Workers Comp Lawyer
I really appreciate how much help Jesse Shapiro has been in my workers comp case. Along with the other people that have written reviews, I have only positive things to say about my experience. Everything they brought up I absolutely agree with. Once I started to feel my case became to hard to handle on my own I started looking into worker’s comp lawyers. He was able to take off the stress of getting my benefits reinstated and was able to get things accomplished much faster than I could have done on my own. He was able to get more done in a few days than I had done on my own in a few weeks. I was able to concentrate on recovering from surgery instead of worrying about dealing with the insurance company. He always responds quickly whenever I have a question or concern and is just as fast to deal with and resolve any problems. After I began working with him I he earned my complete trust he was honest and worked for my best interests. I am so glad I found Jesse to represent me, after talking to a few other attorneys, including a bigger law firm I had worked with after a car accident, I wasn’t sure what I should do. The difference was huge compared to my previous experience. I know he knows who I am instead of feeling like a case number and I can always reach him directly instead of having messages passed along and waiting a few days for a response. He is always friendly and helpful and anytime something comes up I know he will make it a priority to fix it as soon as possible. His experience and knowledge in this specific type of law is impressive and reassuring. He brought up responsibilities of the insurance company after recovery I had no idea about. After meeting with him the first time I was sure that I wanted to work with him and I have never regretted it. I would strongly recommend him to my family and friends if they needed a workers comp attorney; as well as anyone on this website researching an attorney for help.
