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.

Client/Case Winner


Jessie is a very hands on attorney. He is down to earth and makes you as a client feel very comfortable. He is extremely motivated to help his clients receive what they deserve and will fight for your rights.
I have enjoyed having Jessie as my attorney. He helped me fight a fight I did not know I could actually win!
I highly recommend his law office.

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.

Best of the Best


Jesse really know his business. Thanks to his representation I receive the treatment needed at the time needed. He will take care of your case as if you are part of his own family. Never expect the answer you will like to hear, he will guide you with the right answer related to your case and the law. Jesse is honest, sincere and hard working, but never too busy to answer your calls.

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.

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.

Excellent Lawyer


He does fabulous work in making sure that his client such as myself receives the necessary medical treatment to approve the injuries that has been sustained. He also is great at making sure that you receive any compensation that you deserve in a timely matter. Jesse Shapiro is one attorney that I must say let's you know that he cares about you as a person as well as one of his clients. With all that I have been through with the injuries that I sustained in this school bus, some physicians had given up on the treatment, but Attorney Shapiro has made sure that my treatments and medication refills are done in a timely matter. I highly recommend him as an attorney if you have suffered from an injury while at work. He has made sure that my workers compensation is met in all aspects.

Highly Recommended


Our experience with Jesse Shapiro was nothing but excellent. During our trying time, he provided us with his expertise in the Workers Compensation field. We were constantly informed on the status of our case and thanks to Jesse Shapiro, we were able to settle.

Looks out for YOU!!


Jesse is very responsive to all inquiries. His follow up is what I admire most about him. He does what he says he will do and can relate to you on terms that is easy to understand. I trust him 100% and would recommend him highly to any individual that needs an attorney.

Jesse S. Shapiro

  • Workers’ Compensation

Leading Apex NC workers comp lawyer Jesse S. Shapiro was first admitted to practice law before the State Bar of North Carolina in 2000, after four years of undergraduate study at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, and three years of study at Campbell University, Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law in Buies Creek, North Carolina. Mr. Shapiro was active in the Law School Student Counsel and was president of the Law Student Civil Rights Research Counsel for two years where, among other things, he organized trips to Texas and Florida to help men, women and children seeking political asylum in the United States.

Law Background

Shortly after graduation, Mr. Shapiro gained admission to practice law in the following additional jurisdictions: U.S. District Court, Middle District of North Carolina; and U.S. District Court, Eastern District of North Carolina. Mr. Shapiro spent the early years of his practice as a criminal defense lawyer and then moved on to defend insurance companies and self-insured businesses in workers’ compensation and personal injury claims.

After spending more than five years learning the art of workers’ compensation law in North Carolina as both a plaintiff’s lawyer and a lawyer for the insurance companies, Mr. Shapiro decided to open his own law practice in Apex, NC. Mr. Shapiro started his practice with the idea of focusing on helping injured workers across North Carolina obtain the workers’ compensation benefits they may be entitled to. He uses his insurance defense experience to aggressively represent his clients in court and during settlement negotiations. In 2015, Mr. Shapiro joined Wilson & Reives, PLLC, bringing his experience and passion for representing injured workers to Lee County, Wake County and beyond.

Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist

Jesse Shapiro is one of a small percentage of North Carolina Attorneys who is Board Certified as a Specialist in Workers’ Compensation Law by the North Carolina State Bar. Mr. Shapiro represents and protects the rights of injured workers across the state of North Carolina and generally focuses his practice in Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Durham, Fayetteville, Sanford, Southern Pines, Greensboro and surrounding towns and counties.

Having an experienced and skilled workers comp lawyer can be significant for many people. Workers’ compensation is an insurance required by all employers with three or more employees in North Carolina. This insurance is designed to give specific benefits to employees who have been injured by an accident on the job, or have been injured as a result of an “occupational disease” such as asbestosis, carpal tunnel syndrome or hearing loss.

Workers’ compensation is meant to ensure that employees who are injured on the job don’t have to carry the burden of medical bills on their own, and to compensate for wage losses directly related to the accident or to permanent physical impairments.

Awards and Recognition

In 2011, Mr. Shapiro was recognized by the North Carolina Advocates for Justice Workers’ Compensation Section “for extraordinary service rendered and in furtherance of the preservation of justice for injured workers in North Carolina.” Mr. Shapiro currently serves on the Executive Committee for the NCAJ Workers’ Compensation Section.

Mr. Shapiro and his wife, Jennifer, have one child. The Shapiro family loves to cook together and go to music festivals, and on hikes, fishing adventures and historical road trips.
