Answers to common questions about Camp Lejeune
Why choose Chad Maloney and Matt Brooks to represent you in your Camp Lejeune claim?
Chad and Matt both come from Marine Corps families.
Chad was an Active Duty Marine from 2010-2014, serving as a JAG Officer. Chad’s father also served in the Marines in the late 1960s as a Combat Engineer. His dad deployed to Vietnam for 13 months between 1968-1969. Unfortunately, Chad’s father also spent time at Camp Lejeune and was exposed to the toxic water supply.
Following law school, Chad chose to follow in his father’s footsteps by entering the United States Marine Corps. Despite already being an attorney, Chad spent nine months in intensive military training earning the title of Marine while learning how to be a rifleman first.
Matt’s father served in the Marines in the early 1970s as a Basic Ammo Technician. Matt’s father also spent time at Camp Lejeune and was exposed to the toxic water supply. Unfortunately, in 2019, Matt’s father passed away from health conditions possibly linked to his toxic water exposure at Camp Lejeune. Matt now fights, not only for all of our clients, but also for his dad.
Matt comes from a military family. Matt’s wife is an Air Force veteran who currently serves in the U.S. Public Health Service. Matt also has multiple family members who have served in the Marines, including his grandfather, cousin, and uncle who combined saw combat in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and Afghanistan.
When Matt was 10 years old, his grandfather passed away from complications associated with Parkinson’s Disease. Matt’s father gave the eulogy and his closing line, “Give ‘Em Hell, Marine!” has always deeply resonated with Matt. Matt is personally committed to fighting for all Marine families, including his own.
