WASHINGTON, Jan. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association of County Veteran Service Officers (NACVSO) and the law firm of Ashcraft & Gerel LLP have entered into a Memorandum of Agreement whereby Ashcraft & Gerel LLP has agreed to review, at no cost or obligation, any potential claims under the newly enacted Camp Lejeune Justice Act for clients of NACVSO's member Veteran Service Officers.
The mission of NACVSO is to provide education, training, certification, and support of its member Veteran Service Officers so veterans and their dependents nationwide can receive the benefits which they have deservedly earned. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act created an avenue whereby veterans and their dependents can seek compensation from illness and death caused by the toxic water the United States Government provided to Marines and their families for over thirty years.
Ashcraft & Gerel LLP will provide an objective review of the facts and circumstances of the individual case and provide a consultation with a firm attorney about the matter. The veteran or dependent has no obligation to the firm and is free to engage Ashcraft & Gerel LLP or any attorney of their own choosing should they decide to pursue a claim.

The firm has developed a reputation of excellence in complex litigation and has recovered over $1 billion for its clients. The firm has offices in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia and represents clients nationwide.

Numerous courts have appointed Ashcraft & Gerel to leadership positions in multi-district litigation (MDL) and the firm's attorneys are among a select group of attorneys who have tried to verdict numerous MDL cases. Examples of the firm's leadership appointments include serving as Co-Lead Counsel in In re: Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2738 (D.N.J.), which is one of the largest pending mass tort litigations in the country.
