  • Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Lawsuit

    For over 30 years, Marines, their loved ones, and civilian contractors stationed and/or working at MCB Camp Lejeune, North Carolina were exposed to drinking water systems contaminated with industrial chemicals. Numerous diseases have been linked to these contaminants. After years of denying justice to those harmed by the contaminated water, Congress recently passed the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 which, once signed into law, will allow individuals who suffered from water contamination to file lawsuits for compensation.

    If you or a loved one lived or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least thirty (30) days between 1 August 1953 and 31 December 1987 and have been diagnosed with or experienced a qualifying medical condition, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation. The attorneys at MJA are ALL former active-duty Marines who will work tirelessly to give you the best possible representation.

    Contact MJA today to determine your eligibility for the lawsuit.

    MARINES DEFENDING MARINES

    This is not simply ANOTHER CASE for MJA. As with any mass tort litigation, if you have spent even a few minutes on Facebook or Google you have already been bombarded with advertisements from big name plaintiffs’ firms who specialize in mass tort litigation. Most of these attorneys never served in the military and certainly don’t know what it means to be a Marine.

    At MJA, our attorneys were ALL active-duty Marines. And so were our brothers, fathers, uncles, grandfathers, and closest friends. We understand what service and sacrifice mean and live by the motto: Semper Fidelis. It is for that reason that our entire law practice centers on representing active-duty service members and veterans. This is at the heart of who we are and what we do. As Marines ourselves, MJA will work tirelessly on your behalf.
