Hiring the “Right” Lawyer when pursuing a Camp Lejeune Claim

For years, the U.S. Government failed to protect those who lived and worked at Camp Lejeune. For decades, they hid the presence of the of the toxic contaminates found in the water on the base to the detriment of both civilian workers and marines. A claim filed under the Camp Lejeune Justice Act is the first step in the right direction of holding the Government responsible for its clear and irrefutable negligence.

Victims have a short period of time to file a Camp Lejeune claim, merely two years from the signing of the act. Thus, it is imperative to file a claim as soon as possible, and hiring the right attorney is vital to this endeavor. There are several factors that one must consider when seeking legal representation under the Act. These factors include but are not limited to the following: related experience, attorney licensed in appropriate State, success rate, and passion. Let’s discuss these factors in detail.
