Nationally Recognized Camp Lejeune Attorneys
As a known leader in the fight for Camp Lejeune justice, Chad was published in the Wall Street Journal regarding the Camp Lejeune Justice Act and the government’s failure to help victims in a timely manner.
Published in Wall Street Journal – March 13th, 2023:
As a proud second-generation Marine and lawyer, your editorial missed the target.
We can agree that:
1) What happened at Camp Lejeune is tragic. Over 1 million Marines and their families were exposed to toxic drinking water for 30+ years.
2) The Camp Lejeune Justice Act (CLJA) is a bi-partisan effort to right this wrong.
3) Unscrupulous attorneys, with their relentless TV ads and 40% + fee agreements, should exhibit more compassion and less greed.
However, the editorial’s assessment is misleading. As veterans know all too well, the Government has a history of overpromising and underdelivering. While the CLJA tips the scales of justice toward the victims, the Government is defending itself, not surrendering. In fact, the CLJA places the burden of proof on the injured Marine and their families, not the Government. To date, no victims have received compensation, despite thousands of filed qualified claims.
Marines and their families deserve competent representation on this legal battlefield. Thankfully, there are trustworthy attorneys ensuring victims are treated fairly. Many of us, Marines and veteran-focused lawyers, have partnered together. Without a Congressional mandate, we’ve capped our fees at 25% and have not run TV ads. We spend our time at kitchen tables with victims, not on planning our next robocall.
It’s time we all focus on what really matters here: the victims. Congress should quickly establish a reasonable cap on attorney fees to disincentivize the unscrupulous attorneys, and the Government should start doing what it promised: righting this wrong for Marines and their families.
