- 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

Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!

Phillips law group is the best around!
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.
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
Sophia H is very helpful.
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!
