What is the Camp Lejeune Justice Act?

Camp Lejeune, a WWII base established in 1942, faced groundwater contamination about 8-10 years later. Tarawa Terrace and Hadnot Point water treatment plants had high levels of harmful VOCs like TCE and PCE due to various sources, including improper waste disposal.

Holcomb Boulevard, though not directly contaminated, sourced water from Hadnot Point, exposing users unknowingly. TCE levels at Hadnot Point far exceeded EPA safety limits, reaching 1,400 ppb, while the recommended limit is 5 ppb.


Exposure to these chemicals posed serious health risks, including cancer and CNS issues.


Nearly one million people could have health problems because of using Camp Lejeune's water during the time it was contaminated. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act was made to help those who were affected seek legal justice. It's important to have a lawyer to understand your rights and pursue compensation if you've been impacted.

When you visit Scott Overholts website - you will see the words Fair, Honest, and Aggressive. I couldn’t think of better words to describe this wonderful man. When I had my accident, the other insurance company dragged their feet for so long - but Scott got it done, the bills paid, and a very fair settlement. When you go to his office and sit down with him, you’re never rushed and he LISTENS! He has taken care of a few things for me and I always recommend him highly. He’s the only attorney I trust.
Pele thoughtfully stated "Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do." Scott Overholt and his team put all of these to use for me- the result? A positive outcome on my behalf! Scott and his team always made time for my questions and were both personal and professional. They truly love what they do and will use their experience to work hard for you. I highly recommend Overholt Law Firm!
