- Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
Between 1953 and 1987 up to 1 million marines and their family members regularly drank and bathed in the toxic water at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. Tragically, these brave men and women who dedicated their lives to serve our country are today experiencing devastating and life-threatening health issues due to the contaminated water supply that contained large quantities of dangerous volatile organic compounds such as benzene and trichloroethylene.
Marine Corps veterans and their families who served or lived at Camp Lejeune between the 1950s and 1980s may be eligible for VA disability and healthcare benefits if they later developed health issues that can be linked to the contaminated drinking water.
Some of the most common linked medical conditions include: adult leukemia, aplastic anemia, multiple myeloma, liver cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. If you are experiencing a different medical condition that you believe may be linked, you can still qualify to receive compensation as long as the appropriate evidence is provided to the VA.
Affected service members, Camp Lejeune residents, or workers, who had any of the below conditions may quality:
- Bladder cancer
- Breast cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Hepatic steatosis
- Kidney cancer
- Lung cancer
- Multiple myeloma
- Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)
- Neurobehavioral effects
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL)
- Parkinson’s disease
- Renal toxicity

A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
