The Whitley Law Firm is currently reviewing water contamination claims from individuals who lived and/or worked at Camp Lejeune between the years 1953 and 1987. Camp Lejeune is located in Jacksonville, N.C., which gives lawyers in North Carolina unique knowledge of the situation and the emerging litigation concerning toxic water at the base.
Attorneys and North Carolina natives Bob Whitley and Ben Whitley have spoken to multiple news outlets about this topic. Here are some recent articles with quotes from Bob and Ben about Camp Lejeune claims:
Bob talks about the importance of hiring a lawyer with knowledge of the North Carolina court system:
“Once this does start and after the administrative forms are filed, then a filing has got to take place in the federal district court of eastern North Carolina … And I think North Carolina lawyers are going to be in a better position to get those claims timely filed to monitor them, and for the most part to be able to hold the hands of our clients.”
Ben cautions those affected by the water contamination at Camp Lejeune about choosing just any attorney or law firm to handle their case:
“The public should ask questions … Anytime they’re calling a number that’s purporting to give them legal advice, find out if they’re getting legal advice from an actual lawyer.”
